Because legislation brought in by your government in 2008 meant that dangerous terrorists had to automatically be released after half of their jail term. Conservatives changed the law in 2012 to end your automatic release policy but Khan was convicted before this. https://t.co/8fCm880MSK— Priti Patel (@patel4witham) November 30, 2019
Priti Patel also lashed out at Corbyn himself.
The Parole Board could not be involved in this decision @jeremycorbyn. Your party changed the law in 2008 so that Khan was automatically released irrespective of the danger he posed. Very concerning that you want to be PM but don’t understand this.https://t.co/uqUBggmEbg— Priti Patel (@patel4witham) November 30, 2019
The truth remains that with Corbyn in Number Ten the terrorist threat would go through the roof. He would undermine our intelligence services, cut back our armed deterrent, tie the hands of the police and weaken an already limp-wristed judicial system. Not to mention he would open up our borders allowing the fifth column to grow exponentially!
