An expert on terrorism today warned that UK prisons are now a hotbed for Islamic extremism. Professor Michael Clarke, director of the Royal United Services Institute, stated: “Since 2001 we have seen only the first round of the struggle. Prisons around the world are universities of terror and there is no reason to believe that the UK’s will not be the same.
“The 90-odd convictions will have their own longer-term consequences for which the Government must be prepared.”
In other words, this renewed threat is partly a result of successful anti-terrorism operations, filling prisons with terrorists and turning them into “universities of terror”.
Now there’s a cheery thought for you…
