LOONY Leftie Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has called the treatment of two Jihadi terrorists as “shameful and abhorrent” and has called for the evil pair to be saved from the death penalty.
The U.K. Government is being forced to allow the pair known as ‘The Beatles’ to stand trial in the United States which has tougher terror laws than the U.K. which is tied to the EU.
Abbott said: “In an increasingly dangerous and unstable world one of our strengths as a country is our willingness to stand up unflinchingly for human rights.
“It is a key aspect of our soft power so the minister will understand the widespread concern that the Government seems willing to abandon its longstanding principled opposition to the death penalty in this case.
“Either we offer consistent opposition or we don’t.
“This decision to abandon our principled opposition to the death penalty is both abhorrent and shameful, and I call on ministers even at this late stage to reverse this decision.
“Successive governments have always sought assurances that those who face justice in other countries will not face the death penalty.”
