A brilliant idea from UKIP
the death penalty was for ‘terrorist crimes’
True – but death clearly isn’t a deterrent to people prepared to be martyred for their cause, so – to be kind – she hasn’t really thought this through has she?
It really is hard to avoid the thought that the further Right you go, the more stupid you get – there’s never any let-up, is there?Posted 8 months ago
It only matters that they believe it, and no doubt the ones that radicalise the terrorists will assure them that any death for The Cause is martyrdom.
As an aside – if the “virgin” aspect of that deal is the important bit, the appeal of Eternity In Paradise is going to fade a bit from the morning of day 73…

I think they have to go out in a blaze of glory to get the virgins. So like, if they were just sentenced to death & be incapable of taking any innocent children/souls with them, they wouldn’t get any decent sex in ‘paradise’.
An Asian prison officer I worked with once said, ‘those jihadist are effing deluded, virgins my arse’
Also, say if they get shot by a female firing squad….no virgins either. Not even paradise without the virgins!Posted 8 months agomikewsmithSubscriber
Catchy metro headline but as pointed out above its the death penalty for terrorist crimes in general
Yep but as also pointed out the death penalty for people who are willing to die for a cause is a bit daft to say the least. The chance is at least that UKIP will take the looney vote from the tories, I’m sure a few on here would be volunteering to go kill a few foreigners if they could get out from behind the keyboard.Posted 8 months ago

Yeah, it’s a bit like those movie scenes when a character puts a gun to his own head – and a cop pulls out his gun to stop the other guy him from offing himself with the threat of being shot…Posted 8 months ago
Would you agree that the idea is typically UKIP at its heart? That it has the spirit of UKIP about it?
Then it has been reported fairly enough – she might be independent by name, but she’s still UKIP by nature. She might have said it, but still reeks of coming from a UKIP place.
And = as we’ve pointed out several times – it’s brainless anyway: the death penalty will be little deterrence to people prepared to die for their beliefs.
rip the piss out of them for something they have actually done rather than making it up
What was made up? The headline is taking some liberties with the actual idea, but it makes a point.Posted 8 months ago
