UPDATED: Another ‘British’ person we could well do without
Is there anybody who is going to be even remotely surprised that the guy who walked into a police station and threatened the life of Prince Harry, was a Bearded Savage? I’m certainly not surprised.
The Toronto Globe and Mail reports that Ashraf Islam pleaded guilty at Uxbridge Magistrates Court to making a threat to kill contrary to section 16 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.
The paper said:
“Police said Islam was arrested after walking into a police station and making threats, a day after a British soldier was killed in London street on May 22.”
Judging by what Section 16 of the 1861 Act and its amendments say this Bearded Savage could be expecting a sentence of up to ten years. However, because this case is being dealt with at a Magistrates Court it is likely that some derisory and laughable sentence will be handed out to the Bearded Savage.
Can you put your hand on your heart and really say that people like Ashraf Islam bring anything to our society or culture at all? Personally I think that this guy is yet another ‘British’ person we as a nation could very well do without.
Update: Surpise, surprise (or not) this threatening fraggle was a convert to Islam. The Israeli news site Artuz Sheva said:
“A white British convert to Islam has admitted to threatening to murder Prince Harry, British media outlets report.
Mark Townley, 30, who now goes by the name Ashraf Islam, walked into a police station and confessed to wanting to murder the prince.
Police searched Islam’s laptop and found that he had visited terrorist websites.
Islam has served time in jail in the past, and reportedly converted to Islam in prison. He reportedly described himself as a “part time” Muslim.
Prince Harry, 28, is third in line for the throne. British officials have expressed concern that Harry could be a target for terrorists due to his tours of Afghanistan. He served in Afghanistan twice, with the Household Cavalry and the Army Air Corps.
