An examples of radical laws and discrimination exposed.

One topic that has started flowing around the so-called anti-jihad sites is the decision by the European Court of Justice to force Britain from the discriminatory law of restricting Social Security benefits to the wives and families of convicted terrorists.    It was imposed by former Treasury Minister Ed Balls.

One blog that I do comment on, known as “The Battle for Britain – Islam on the march” and get a fair hearing and often interesting debate, has such an item and I have made the below comment.  I am sure that any response will be interesting and I may expand this item by adding the responses and going somewhat in-depth into the views (and motives) that some may have.

I agree with the decision by the court and I hope it is followed.

Social Security is designed to support those without sufficient income, if the family of known terrorists are not gaining any other income, why should they be “discriminated” against? If they should still be in the country and their immigration status being terminated is another subject and I am all for that to be carefully reviewed, but if they are legally allowed to be in the country and obtain Social Security then there is no grounds to make them different.

To believe the contrary, then there should be equal consideration that the families and spouses of any criminal, of any race or religion, should also have their benefits cut – there is no difference.
