There are enough dangers in covering radical Islam without the police and the CPS adding to them. Much more in this vein and most journalists will give up …. If Butt and Malik are prosecuted, how the jihadis will laugh at the stupidity of a country that can’t tell its allies from its enemies. ‘Look,’ they will say to their recruits, ‘look at what happens to Muslims who go over to their side. Are they thanked? Are they honoured? No, they’re prosecuted. All Muslims are the same to the British and there’s no point in trying to please them.’
Nick Cohen has an article on the depressing stupidity of the Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service in The Observer.
Read it and weep.
