Do you think they're actually going to twat him off to Jordan any time soon? All a bit of a pantomime either way huh?
Amnesty's UK director, Kate Allen said: "This is a disappointing decision and a missed opportunity. The grand chamber would have been the right body to examine this appeal because it raises fundamental issues about whether 'deportation deals' with countries which routinely use torture should ever be relied on."
Tory MP Dominic Raab said: "This decision puts Qatada's deportation back under UK control.
"Once the British courts approve the revived deportation application, which ought to happen in the next few weeks, Qatada will presumably try a third appeal to Strasbourg.
"At that point, the government cannot legally be prevented from deporting him, so he should be put straight on a plane to Jordan.
"It would pervert the rule of law to allow him to sit out a third Strasbourg appeal, which could take months, on British soil and at taxpayers' expense."
I remember that Dominic Raab did something penissy a while back but can't remember what.
Juthink Amnesty are putting support on the line with their angle? Not a popular thing to say. fair play.
Right. ok that's all.
