UK burdened by terroists' rights apparatus that prevents deportations

Sunday Telegraph:
More than 40 foreign terrorists have used human rights laws to remain in the UK, according to an unpublished report delayed by the Home Office.

The study highlights the near insurmountable problem for the Government in deporting dangerous jihadists and follows a series of Islamic State-inspired attacks in the UK.

In the court cases, lawyers - typically funded through legal aid - have successfully prevented foreign-born terror suspects from being sent back to their home countries.

At a time when Britain’s security services are fully stretched, the additional burden of monitoring so many foreign terrorist inevitably adds to the strain.
...
Prof Walker said: “My research suggests there are more than 40 foreign terrorists convicted in the UK who have avoided deportation using the human rights act. The figure is much larger than was previously thought.”

Among those understood to have used the Human Rights Act to resist deportation including jihadists with links to the failed 21/7 bomb plot in 2005 who were jailed in the UK and subsequently released after serving their sentences.

Another is an Algerian terrorist imprisoned for funding al-Qaeda training camps but since free after serving his sentence.
...
The European terrorists' rights fetish is suicidal and expensive.  One thing the government could to is to increase the punishment for terrorism attacks to potential life sentences to at least keep them off the streets and off the dole.  But the most logical response would be to change the human rights laws to block terrorists from using them to avoid deportation.

The current law and apparatus creates no incentive for these people to avoid mass murder attacks on British citizens.
