    Until our politicians have the guts to kick this bastard out....why not? Anyway mate we have other less deserving domestic scum that cream the system for even more cash.

    This wanker is by no means exceptional! our own politicians are deeper into the cash trough than this guy....jeez he's a lightweight compared to some

    ...........come to the UK mate and you can make a living by not making a living :D :D


    goodnight................

    .......I have no idea....seriously I cannot give you an intelligent reply!

    Its not as if we've just arrived here as if by magic its been going on for years. I lived in Germany for a number of years and hardly visited the UK in that time, I remember picking up the newspaper once I'd returned and both the wife and I looked at each other and wondered what the frig was going on! I think in all honesty we are afraid of not paying money to people like this because they will go to a lawyer and claim an infringement of their Human Rights.......I don't know mate!

    Maybe my fellow Brit 9Sub....could jump in?

    I am no expert of British law, but it seems to me that denying a pension or disability insurance to a convicted felon is not a violation of human rights and would never stand up in court.

    I would suggest that Canadian law would do the same. Why would or should it not? When any person commits a crime, is found guilty through our coutrts and is jailed, serves his sentence and is released, he is seen to be forgiven for the crime. The fact that we are talking about a certain person in this case who you deem to be a worse felon than perhaps another who commited a different crime makes no difference to the law.

    It may or may not be my own opinion Rob, but some would consider this man to be guilty of nothing more than fighting for his rights and freedoms.

    The American mindset is terribly flawed in my opinion and the results are mirrored in the number of your citizens you have locked up in your prisons. It needs to become more a matter of rehabilitation as opposed to punitive punishment.

    This is another issue which is covered in Will Hutton's, A Declaration of Interdependence.

    Geez, it sounds like Brits are losing their sovereignty to transnational potentates! If I were a european now, I'd say let's have a fair trade pact, a mutual defense pact, and forget the rest.

    Public opinion does play a role in the law. As for him being released and all being forgiven, he is sentenced to life in prison in Jordon. As for his "release", he is out on bail awaiting immigration hearings to go back to Jordon and serve his sentence. I predict he will be sent back.

    His right to do what? Blow up tourists in Jordon? Or maybe you mean his right to kill the wives and children of Egyptian police officers? Is it that one?

    We have many people locked up yes, the highest incarceration rate in the world I believe. That said, when people commit crimes they need to go to jail, not get a slap on the wrist. Perhaps our incarceration rate is so much higher because we actually send people to jail for crimes, while others slap them on the wrist instead.
