A father and son team are in court facing charges of preparing to commit acts of terrorism.
According to The Independent:
Ian Davison’s home in Myrtle Grove, Burnopfield, County Durham, was raided by anti-terror officers who found the killer substance in a jam jar in his kitchen.
At Newcastle Crown Court he admitted producing a chemical weapon – ricin – and preparing for acts of terrorism.
He also admitted three charges of possessing a record containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing acts of terrorism.
The charge related to copies of three texts including The Anarchist’s Handbook, which detailed instructions on making explosives.
Davison, who wore a pale blue, short-sleeved shirt and was flanked by four prison officers, also admitted possession of a prohibited weapon which related to a spray canister found during the raid on his home.
He will be sentenced after the trial of his son Nicky Davison, 19, who denies two charges of possessing material containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing acts of terrorism.
Let’s hope these scum are put away for a long time. Let’s not hear any nonsense about The Anarchist’s Handbook being freely available online or other excuses frequently made for terrorist plotters.
I am very pleased – not to mention relieved – that our security services are on the ball, are not daunted, distracted or dissuaded by politics, press or public relations and are raiding the lairs of far-right terrorists regardless of colour or creed.
