What is is the meaning of sovereignty when a government cannot remove a racist, pompously unrepentant, terror-inciting, welfare-sucking Al-Qaeda maggot from its country.
Let no-one be in any doubt.
Either by mistake or supreme lunacy, Britain signed its sovereignty over to the EU.
Perhaps the government lawyers didn't read the EU treaty any more carefully than they read Abu Qatada's time limit for appeal.
Either way, you would think that - having lost sovereignty to the EU - the best hope would be for the EU to fold and have to cede back its powers.
Instead, stupid Britain is shoring-up the crumbling EU with billions in bailout funds.
Maybe Britain deserves people like Qatada.
