Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has criticised Theresa May's efforts to deport Abu Qatada, saying her strategy has "completely failed".
She said: “A year ago Theresa May promised Abu Qatada would soon be on a plane. Now it is clear her legal strategy has completely failed...
“Theresa May failed to appeal against the European Court decision last year. It is no good the Home Secretary blaming the Court when she didn't appeal when she had the chance."
The Home Secretary pinned her hopes for ousting Abu Qatada from Britain on a fresh deal with the Jordanians.
A Tory MP and former government lawyer give their view on the UK potentially withdrawing from the ECHR to aid Abu Qatada's deportation.
The Government has been refused permission to take its fight to remove preacher Abu Qatada from the UK to the Supreme Court.
