Terror set free
YET again innocent Brits have been murdered by a knife-wielding terrorist.
We know that lone wolf attacks can be difficult to prevent.
Saadallah was on MI5’s radar for wanting to fight in Syria[/caption]
Sometimes, people leading otherwise ordinary lives become radicalised online and then go on a killing rampage which couldn’t have been predicted.
But that wasn’t the case with Reading suspect Khairi Saadallah.
In fact, he was a ticking time bomb. A Libyan, granted asylum by Britain, he was on MI5’s radar for wanting to fight in Syria.
He had a history of violent crime and was believed to have been diagnosed with mental health issues requiring regular medication before he was released from jail 16 days ago.
All of which leaves the Home Office with some tricky questions to answer. Why was a violent criminal granted leave to remain in the UK in the first place?
Was he taking his medication? If not, why was no one monitoring him? And, given he was evidently still a danger, why was he allowed out into the community?
With grim regularity, politicians grace our TV screens to tell us they are “horrified” by the murderous actions of recently freed prisoners.
Which begs the simple question. If prisoners are clearly a danger to the public, why release them?
VAT’s a plan
CHANCELLOR Rishi Sunak’s plan to breathe life into the economy bears all the hallmarks of good sense.
Unemployment is at its highest level in decades, so of course National Insurance contributions for employers should be cut.
And slashing VAT is a great idea too. Cautious Brits worrying about the upcoming recession need incentives to splash their hard-earned cash.
Faced with an enormous Covid bill, some politicians would panic and raise taxes in an attempt to pay off the debt.
But when people are taxed to high heaven, they can’t afford to pump money into pubs, shops and restaurants.
Coronavirus has taken a huge financial toll on Britain. And our recovery period will be long and painful.
But if Mr Sunak holds his nerve and turns this sensible plan into concrete policy on budget day, we have no doubt that Great Britain WILL bounce back.
Hope for hols

If the Government bites the bullet and ditches its mad quarantine plan, it looks like we could have a summer after all.
