Derek, let's rely on statistics.

No Alan, not really.

'The students piss you off for working with released offenders, were only doing it to get into Cambridge'

That is not what I said.

Jack was trying to get Khan a University place. I didn't say he was doing it to get a place himself.

I never said it was inevitable they would be murdered anyway.

What pisses me off is people believing convicted muslim terrorists should be accepted back into society and not locked up indefinitely.,thus putting ordinary people going about their normal business at increased risk.

Please read what I write and not what you want to think I wrote so you can 'have a go'.

At some point you have to forgive the bad guys otherwise the killing never stops.

2019 UK net migration - estimated at 212,000 (0.3% of population)

2010 to 2019 UK net migration:

average - 250,000

low (2012) -170,000

high (2015) - 345,000

Nov 2019 UK Immigration Stats

With the population growth slowing more than expected and a reduction in net migration, the old age population will have a miserable time with a shrinking tax base, higher retirement age and no pension growth: Population Growth Less Than Expected

I'm quite happy with the 300,000 immigrants (0.8% of population) arriving in Canada each year that keep the economy and communities vibrant.

Peteplug,

I read your original words a few times, and responded as I was shocked at the interpretation I came to. So I broke my rule of avoiding politics on a car forum, and dived in, to at least get it clarified.

Thank you for clarifying. 

 “do not need young people trying to facilitate their entry into Cambridge University”

”their” is ambiguous - I linked it to the young people. Were the young people really trying to get the terrorist into Cambridge? Not sure. 

“with the inevitable consequences for them”

You meant the inevitable consequences were something other then their murder? Merely that something bad would happen?. Ambiguous again.

“Please read what I write and not what you want to think I wrote so you can 'have a go'.”

I read it at least 3 times. I was shocked so asked for clarification. If I want to “have a go”, I will, but wasn’t on this occasion.

I don’t like victim blaming. But you were not blaming them quite as much as I feared.

Aerobod, as someone who lives in London and has enjoyed the benefits of immigration (as well as having a French wife) I still feel the need to highlight that Canada is very different from the uk. A quick wiki gave me this .....
Canada is about 41 times bigger than United Kingdom.
United Kingdom is approximately 243,610 sq km, while Canada is approximately 9,984,670 sq km. Meanwhile, the population of United Kingdom is ~64.4 million people (28.8 million fewer people live in Canada).

Back to topic, I agree you need to forgive the bad guys IF they are genuinely seeking forgiveness. With the current Islamic ideology I think a healthy dose of scepticism is required. If a convicted terrorist has to serve more of his sentence to keep my family safe I’m happy with that. No benefit of the doubt should be given. Quite the contrary. 

In addition, with Ireland there was a group to negotiate with who had reasonable control. With lone wolf/small cells I’m not sure the same result is possible. Defeatist maybe. Let’s see what happens and in the meantime public safety must be number 1,2 and 3.

There are two types of people in the world.

Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.
