BRITAIN: British jihadists should be stripped of citizenship says top police officer.

British jihadists fighting abroad should be stripped of their citizenship and banned from returning home, the country’s most senior police officer has said.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, also vowed tougher action against preachers of hate and other extremists who take to the streets to air their air their rants.

The senior officer became the latest senior figure to call for a change in the law to combat the threat of home grown Islamist fanatics.

He also backed Boris Johnson’s demands for those returning from Syria or Iraq to be presumed as terrorists unless they can prove their innocence.

Hmm. Related: Norway considers revoking citizenship of people who take part in terror activities or wars abroad – echoing the call of Boris Johnson.

Prediction: There’ll be more citizenship-stripping in the future, as European countries come to regret their openness to immigrants who have no interest in assimilating.
