Another reason I love the UK politics…

This is Abase Hussen, father of one of the ‘Jihadi brides’ marching alongside Michael Adebolajo, the bloke to drove over and hacked off Lee Rigby’s head in broad daylight? He also photographed shouting, screaming, burning flags and calling for an end to democracy and implementation of Sharia in the UK with Anjem Choudary…

Oh and he blames the UK for radicalizing his daughter and the police for letting her run off to Syria to join ISIS…?

Why is this guy allowed to hold a British passport???
