Tory MP Michael Ellis said Labour was engaging in "naked opportunism" by challenging the Home Secretary on the issue of the Abu Qatada's appeal deadline. He said:
– Michael Ellis MP
"Monday the 16th was within three months. Tuesday the 17th would have been three months - not within three months.
Therefore the Home Secretary is right. Those on the benches opposite have been supporting and siding with Abu Qatada's lawyers and their argument in suggesting otherwise.
