Ferrari Fumes At Lenient Choudary Sentence

Nick Ferrari is furious that Anjem Choudary will be out of jail in less than two and a half years - and he's going to do everything he can to stop it happening.

Choudary was jailed yesterday for five and a half years after being convicted of inviting support for Isis.

But that means he'll be out in less than two and a half years and Nick says he will request a sentencing review.

Speaking on his LBC show, Nick said: "It is reported that there is pressure now on the Attorney General to review this sentence. Damn right, there's pressure.

"I'm going to do everything possible within my power - and I will be making representations later today on behalf of you, the listeners, unless you want to tell me that I'm wrong, that this sentence must be reviewed.

"It is relatively rare. It's not as if the judge I understand has much to go by here, but it would appear that he had at his discretion 10 years. He's just inched over half of that. Why?

"This man helped radicalise the people that butchered Lee Rigby. This man is behind plots that we know and possibly many many plots that we don't.

"What did the judge not get? What is it? How is it that a country like this - now, I love the fact we're so tolerant - but he's laughing at his way to jail."

Nick has had previous success with compaints over judges. Judge Peter Bowers was disciplined following a complaint by Nick after he said that a burglar was "courageous".
