Charon spoke to me again this afternoon, this time about Abu Qatada – the Lords ruling on Wednesday and today’s ruling from Strasbourg awarding him compensation. We talk a bit about the man himself and the whole sage of his life in Britain, what evidence the courts have seen of his role in international jihad, and the rights and wrongs of the way each court has dealt with him. Light, I hope, was generated, rather than simply heat; and an interesting conversation, anyway, even if I did go on a bit.
