    So Good Morning sends their guy out to report on the release of Anjem Choudary (spit) from prison and he sets up his live shot in front of this sign...

    Bad optics...

    Support a genocidal death cult... get released on half time for good behaviour.

    AC sees himself as a prisoner of war. A POW's duty is to create as much trouble for his captors as possible. Now that he's released he'll still be absorbing time, money and resources which are needed elsewhere, so it's a double win for him.

    Interesting to see that, according to the sign, ISIS has its own wing at Belmarsh. Not surprising, though.

    Isis is the old name for the River Thames (next to which the prison is situated) and is still used for the upper part of the river that flows through Oxford. The Oxford reserve squad in the boat race is called Isis after this stretch of the river on which they train.

    Criminal Justice Act 2003, Section 244:
    As soon as a fixed-term prisoner, other than a prisoner to whom section [F1243A[F2, 246A] or] 247 applies, has served the requisite custodial period [F3for the purposes of this section], it is the duty of the Secretary of State to release him on licence under this section.

    We need an emoji for "staring at something and wondering what the hell that has to do with anything"

    Anjem Choudury was released after serving half his sentence as per the law. The Home Secretary ordered his release as per the law. If we don't like it, we need to get the law changed.
