Hello MI5 where is the intelligence to your intelligence?
Lemme get this straight. You have a guy on the radical nutburger club radar for a decade. You know he not only is a follower of a radical cleric who promotes violent jihad in the U.K. (I’ve blogged about Anjem Choudary before) but has taken part in numerous violent protests (with and without Choudary along). You know he did jail time for violent behaviour. You know he tried to go to Somalia to join a terrorist fighting group (you know this because you stopped him doing it at the airport). Yet, you didn’t consider him to be a jihadi threat?
