Those of us who are opposed to the Lib Dems and their treachery, dishonesty and sleaze have become used to stupid utterances and whacko policies coming from them and their supporters. However this from Nick Clegg really takes the biscuit.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Clegg has defended the right of the family of convicted Islamic terrorist Abu Hamza to live in a £1.2million taxpayer funded house and to be in receipt of welfare of £650 per week in child and housing benefits.
The Daily Mail said:
“Nick Clegg has sparked outrage by defending the taxpayer-funded £1.25million house lived in by hate preacher Abu Hamza’s family.
The Deputy Prime Minister rejected demands to cut benefits for the hook-handed cleric’s wife and children after he was convicted of 11 terror offences in the U.S.
The firebrand – who for years spouted evil on Britain’s streets – is expected to die behind bars after a jury in New York found him guilty of aiding the kidnapping of hostages in Yemen in which three Britons were killed and trying to set up an Al Qaeda training camp in Oregon.
It emerged yesterday that Hamza’s wife Najat Mostafa, 55, and some of their eight children continue to live rent-free in a five-bedroom home in upmarket Shepherd’s Bush, West London.
The family are understood to be raking in at least £650 a week in housing and child benefits – a total of £33,800 a year.
Four of Hamza’s sons and a stepson have served time in jail – two for terrorism offences.
But on his call-in radio show yesterday, Liberal Democrats leader Mr Clegg defended the family’s right to be housed at an extortionate cost to the British taxpayer.
He said he understood people’s ‘frustrations’, but added: ‘He’s been convicted, he’s going to serve time in prison. It’s not his family, they’ve not decided to take action against his family.
‘If they’ve committed any wrongdoing, if they’ve broken the law, then charges should be brought against them much like anybody else.’
Tory MPs said Mr Clegg was ‘out of touch’ with hard-pressed British families.”
Clegg is not just showing he is ‘out of touch’ by these statements, but also that he cares nothing for the safety, security or future of the United Kingdom. The presence of this criminal Jihad supporting family in the UK is bad enough, but to see a major mainstream politician supporting them is worse than disgusting.
If you are considering voting Lib Dem then remember the words of Nick Clegg about Abu Hamza and his scummy family and think very carefully before you put your cross next to the Lib Dem box.
The Lib Dems have proved that they would rather politically fellate Jihadists and Jihad supporters than look after the ordinary people of Britain.
Vote Lib Dem – Get welfare for Jihadists. It’s not a convincing message for the British people is it?
