Compare and contrast. A few days ago, one of Britain's best-loved hate preachers, Anjem Choudary, a man so widely admired that we pay him £25,0000 a year in benefits so he can live in this country, was filmed saying murdered Woolwich soldier Lee Rigby will "burn in hellfire" as a non-Muslim.
Choudary then added, in typically disarming manner, that Adebolajo and Adebowale, the two men charged with Drummer Rigby's murder, were doing "what they believed to be Islamically correct", while noting that Michael Adobelajo was "a very nice man".
Quite properly, the police refused to step in. After all, we have the right to free speech in this country, and Choudary said nothing illegal.
