Clegg: Coalition to fight Qatada 'every step of the way'

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has told Daybreak the Coalition Government will do "everything we can to challenge" Abu Qatada's legal fight "every step of the way" to rid him from the country.

We're determined to deport him. We strongly disagree with the court ruling and we're going to challenge it, we're going to take it to appeal. We're absolutely determined to see this man get on a plane and go back to Jordan.

He doesn't belong here, he shouldn't be in this country. He's a dangerous person. He wanted to inflict harm on our country and this Coalition Government is going to do everything we can to challenge this every step of the way to make sure that he is deported to Jordan.
