Anjem Choudary is dreaming wistfully of a better place to live than dreary old London, aka The Great Wen.
(Trivia question: who called London that? Was it
- William Blake
- Samuel Johnson
- William Wordsworth
- Anne Brontë
Deadline midnight Seattle time.)
Anjem Choudary is considering a new life in Isis-controlled Iraq or Syria – despite the region descending into a bloodbath of executions and beheadings.
The former al-Muhajiroun leader admits he would “love to live” under the control of the terror group rather than his native Britain.
Well of course he would. He loves violence and death directed at other people, and if he went to Iraq or Syria he would get to watch lashings of it. That treat is much harder to come by in London.
Asked if he would like to live there, the 47-year-old said: “Yeah, definitely.“At the current time it is a volatile situation – there is a war taking place.
“If anyone wants to go there now they would have to be involved in that struggle.
“But if it settles down and they maintain the security for the people, provide them with their basic needs, protect their life, their health and their wealth, then of course it is somewhere I would love to live with my family and children.”Asked if Britain was about to lose him, the cleric joked: “Maybe I will come back and conquer Britain one day. I would live anywhere where they implement only the sharia.”
