Mulumebet Girma, 33, rose through the ranks and was even put on the cover of a council magazine after failing to disclose her criminal past when applying for the position.

The Ethiopian former model was jailed in 2008 for 10 years for helping brother-in-law Hussain Osman flee after his plot to kill Tube passengers, two weeks after the July 7 attacks killed 52 people.

Two neo-Nazi groups added to banned list

“By extending the proscription of National Action, we are halting the spread of a poisonous ideology and stopping its membership from growing – protecting those who could be at risk of radicalisation,” Ms Rudd said.

The move was welcomed by the head of UK counter-terrorism policing, Mark Rowley, who said it would help “disrupt and tackle the growing threat from the extreme right-wing”.

Every terror law purportedly to protect society from Islamists is instead used against the Right, while tens of thousands of known jihadists walk free in Britain alone.

UK: Police Will Not Be Taking Shoes Off When Raiding Mosques

After the film circulated last week, of officers trying to keep order in a brawl being obstructed by worshippers more concerned about uniform shoes than the fighting within and without, some of us predicted that the result would be diversity training for the junior officers and grovelling apologies from the senior officers.

No, it wasn’t those pesky Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists again, or Far Right extremists, or the provisional wing of Ukip, trying to stir up hatred against immigrants after the Brexit vote.

So who was it? Go on, have a guess.

Police have thwarted seven attacks since March – London mayor

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said police had thwarted seven attacks by militants since March this year, describing the increase in the number as a shift rather than a spike.

Speaking at the annual conference of his opposition Labour Party, Khan also said the police needed more spending to help them counter such attacks and that Internet companies must do more to crackdown on extremist content.
