Employer Of The Year!

A man wanted by Interpol for his links to an alleged terrorist organisation has been advising Scotland Yard on countering Muslim extremism, a Times investigation has discovered.
Well, it takes a thief to catch a thief, they say. Poor Ronnie Biggs must be wondering why he didn’t get a lucrative job offer, instead of being chased halfway round the globe…
Mr Harrath has been convicted in absentia of numerous criminal and terrorism-related offences by Tunisian courts and sentenced to 56 years in prison. Tunisia is an ally of the West in the fight against terrorism but is regarded by critics as a police or one-party state. Its secular Government regards those who advocate an Islamic state as a threat to its stability.
Hard to say they’re wrong…
Despite Mr Harrath being wanted by Interpol, Scotland Yard has appointed him as adviser to its Muslim Contact Unit on preventing extremism and terrorism. Mr Harrath told The Times that he was “regularly consulted in an advisory capacity by the Muslim Contact Unit of the British police for guidance on best practice in relation to counter-terrorism issues and combating extremism”.
Perhaps a trawl through the Scotland Yard HR database may turn up more wanted fugitives. Who knows, we may finally find out what happened to Lord Lucan!
The British Government refused a request by the Tunisian Government in 1997 to have him extradited. According to his lawyers, “the UK security services informed Mr Harrath that the UK did not regard him as a threat and that there was no basis for the Tunisian extradition request, which the Tunisian authorities had wholly failed to substantiate”.

His political views and wish to overthrow Tunisia’s Government have, however, raised alarm in British circles. One government minister said: “That is not acceptable. We have a problem with that because Tunisia is our ally. Tunisia today, UK tomorrow.”
If questions aren’t asked in the House about this, we’ll have incontrovertible proof that the lunatics really are in control of the asylum…

This is symptomatic of the dominant 'diversity agenda' within the British police service. The Met aren't the only force to be blinded in their thirst for compliance. It is pathetic but not at all surprising. I'd love to see what background checks are carried out on members the Met's central Independant Advisory Group, let alone each borough IAG!

When you read things like this and then today's Guardian article on police injuries at Kingsnorth Climate Camp in the Summer you despair at the state we will live in today.

Injured 'sitting in a car', eh...?

Did the CD eject too quickly or something?

I'm sure the Guardian would be as swift to expose lies from green protesters and other anarchists...um...

Heh. Not on your Nellie!

Still, that's what 'CiF' is for, if you can stealth past the mods...
