Mohammed Chowdhury, Shah Rahman, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah all pleaded guilty to “engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism”.

The four men from London and Cardiff were arrested in 2010 and are set to stand trial at Woolwich Crown Court.

  1. What is it with these religious nutters?

    Why do they think blowing things up and killing ordinary people is somehow going to make us bend the knee to their ridiculous perverted ideology.

    I have no doubt that if the government had a referendum on the death penalty, these guys would be toast.

    The western economy and democratic systems are far superior to those systems run by religious dictatorial and dogmatic belief systems.

    Freedom comes with responsibility not to engage in criminal and harmful activities.

    If they had succeeded, what difference would it have made to the real world, the Stock Exchange has off site facilities that would get it up and running again in no time.

    Take away all social benefits from them and their families, evict them from their homes, sell off or sieze and sell any assets they may have acquired and use it to reduce our deficit, keep them in jail forever and / or deport them immediately their sentences have been served to a dedicated offshore island with no support and let them fend for themselves.

    Some may say I am being inhuman, but where is their humanity, they would kill us all if we let them. Eye for an Eye I say.

    As we discovered in the last world war, violent dictators have to be put to the sword.
