Have your say

We see through the media a load of claptrap printed about the known terrorist the media call Jihadi John.

Only a fool would suggest that the secret service M15 caused him to become a terrorist.

Australia may not be perfect in some ways, however they do operate an immigration system designed to protect their population

The problem with the British national media is that they always seek to blame someone else for any atrocity or horror. It’s time journalists learned to stand up and “say it as it is”, fearlessly like our grandparents used to do.

Firstly we should remind all those in the media that the terrorist in question was not christened with the very British name of John. He was born in Kuwait and therefore is not British. He is in fact a terrorist by choice who takes pleasure in beheading helpless victims.

Australia may not be perfect in some ways, however they do operate an immigration system designed to protect their population and their country as a whole.

Comparing our own so-called border controls it seems that anyone can come and go as they please. The terrorist in question here came from the suspect country Kuwait, no money, no job, no earthly use to this country, and he knows that he could quite easily return here any time he chooses just as others like-minded have, and will do.

Before we had Euro we were known as Great Britain and the Isis mob would have stood no chance here. There was abundant industry, and apprenticeships were the norm.

We ought not then blame M15 for our serious and re-occurring problems. M15 does not run, manage, or mismanage the running of this country so try blaming all those who do. You have plenty of time before the election to decide who they might be.
