– Yvette Cooper, shadow Home Secretary
People will be horrified that Abu Qatada is now out on Britain's streets rather than on a plane as the Home Secretary promised earlier this year.
Theresa May's strategy to deport Abu Qatada has clearly failed, despite all her confident predictions earlier this year. We need new action and a proper plan from Theresa May following her misplaced confidence.
Clearly the Government must mount the strongest possible appeal against this worrying decision.
David Cameron has expressed his frustration at terror suspect Abu Qatada, saying: "I'm fed up he's still at large in the country." Qatada has been released on bail after winning the latest round in his legal fight against deportation to Jordan.
