Sickening smirk of the suspect who’ll never be tried for the shooting of PC Yvonne Fletcher as he enjoys family life in his £600,000 home in suburbia

Why should he get Asylum here? UKIP should use this as a clause celebre.

LF, exactly. That is the question a sane person would ask. What his house is "worth" has naff all to do with it.

You know, in the old days, you were innocent until proved guilty. Nowadays it seems more like innocent until proved Muslim.

B, the M describe him as being a "suspect" and say that he is "on bail". Either those statements are true or they are not. There's no point being PC about this, there is a fair chance he did it.

Well, 1) even a suspect on bail still hasn't been proved guilty, only suspected of carrying out the crime. That's why he's called a "suspect". LF is asking "why should he get asylum here", i.e. making an assumption of guilt (if he is innocent, then the reply to that would be "why the hell not?").
2) this is the DM, the paper that supported Hitler until Britain inconveniently declared war on his regime. I have read the article and there is a very strong presumption of guilt.
