David Cameron expressed his joy at Abu Hamza's extradition.
The Prime Minister said the Government must consider ways of stopping similar cases reoccurring:
I'm absolutely delighted that Abu Hamza is now out of this country.Like the rest of the public I'm sick to the back teeth of people who come here, threaten our country, who stay at vast expense to the taxpayer and we can't get rid of them.
I'm delighted on this occasion we've managed to send this person off to a country where he will face justice.
Now we should learn every lesson.How do we stop these people coming in? How do we get rid of them more quickly? How do we make sure they don't spend so long at taxpayers' expense?
I'm as frustrated as the rest of the country when these things happen.
I'm delighted that this man at least is on an airplane and on his way to face justice.
