He “lives in a £1 million house leafy street in fashionable west London.” He receives “£50,000 a year in handouts,” and when asked how he could justify this, responded: “Ask David Cameron, don’t ask me.”
Indeed. The British people should ask David Cameron, right before they escort him out of #10 Downing Street and to the nearest courtroom to stand trial for grave dereliction of duty. But even that wouldn’t solve this problem, or others like it. The entire British political class, like its American counterpart, needs thorough housecleaning and reform.

Britannic Death Watch Update: “Cleric said to be behind Tunisian beach massacre is living on benefits in Britain,” by Victoria Ward, Telegraph, July 6, 2015:
A leader of the terrorist group suspected of being behind the Tunisian beach massacre is living in benefits in Britain.

Security services are understood to be investigating links between al-Sibai and his influence on the west London terror network in which Jihadi John – unmasked as Mohammed Emwazi – operated.
It is claimed that al-Sibai, a charismatic preacher, had “captivated” a number of young Muslim men who subsequently went abroad to fight jihad.
In a court case last year, he was accused of having “provided material support to al-Qaeda and conspired to commit terrorist acts”, an allegation he denies….
