What do you think of tougher sentences for terrorists following the atrocities of Usman Khan. Are they sufficient to deal with these savages?

BBC News - Terrorism laws to get tougher within weeks, government vows

    They should be given life sentences with no parole, solitary confinement and hard labour instead of pandering to their whims.

    I’ve no objection to tough sentences for those convicted, but very few of these people embark on terrorist activities believing they will get caught, or believing if they do they can die in an act of what they believe is martyrdom. Tougher sentences will not act as a deterrent.

    More work needs to be put into preventing the radicalisation of young people by Islamic and far-right extremists, and that means spending money on policing to apprehend offenders, and young people’s and probation services to deal with minor offenders before they become serious offenders. But that’s not a vote winner, is it? So we’ll just get Priti Patel hoodwinking the gullible public with false promises of stiffer sentences, where the law already allows for very long prison terms.

      That’s rubbish. Most of the cannon fodder these scum use are stupid, impressionable youngsters, and can be changed. Some can’t. It’s interesting that you suddenly care about the feelings of “ordinary prisoners” - rapists, sex pests, violent thugs, thieves.

    There are not enough police and probation officers to keep track of potential terrorists.

    If Khan's original indeterminate sentence imposed in 2012 had been left to stand he would still have been in prison and due for release this year only if that was considered safe. Even on release the police would have kept tabs on him. The judge at the time said the indeterminate sentence was required to protect the public as Khan had a “serious long-term plan” and "a commitment to terrorism" and he would probably have been detained for a lot longer than eight year minuimum.

    At the time of Khan's appeal, indeterminate sentences had been brought into disrepute by judges misapplying them to criminals who did not present an enduring threat and his appeal was successful. It was the Tories who abandoned indeterminate sentences completely. Personally, I would like to see indeterminate sentences reintroduced, alongside the other measures proposed, for terrorists and other criminals like psychopaths who present an enduring threat.

      I agree to a point so have a TU. But, as you mentioned, the system was abused by judges so needed to be abandoned. An automatic starting point of fourteen years without parole for terrorists seems logical to me and will stop stupid judges giving indeterminate sentences for less serious offences.

    Excellent article from the BBC, especially the quote from Robert Buckland, Justice Secretary.

    "The far-right are a factor as well. We deal with many facets of extremism in our prisons."

    About time these hate merchants were clamped down on, really hard.

      I'm not excluding far-right terrorism, but it's telling that you divert the spotlight from Islamic lunatics such as Usman Khan and Lee Rigby's killers.. Far-right terrorists are only a small percentage of the prison population compared to Muslim terrorists and you know it.

    It doesn't go far enough.  Even though as a general rule I don't believe in the death penalty commonsense exceptions have to be made.  In Khan's case he was caught planning an act of mass murder therefore he was too dangerous to be allowed to live. I know the death penalty has the effect of brutalising society but importing people from savage third cultures brutalises society too.

      Good answer that deserves a BA, but your use of the word "savage" will get the left wing trolls claiming you're my sockpuppet account!

    Khan had already served a long sentence and passed the de-radicalisation programme.  So not sure more of what has already not worked will do any good.
