The UK has just droned an ISIS jihadist who was plotting to kill the Queen. The English’s monarch, not the band. And not a transgendered dude in a fancy gown. Stop getting distracted, this is important.
A British jihadist has been killed by UK forces in Syria after he directed a plot to kill the Queen, it emerged on Monday night.
In a move David Cameron said was “a new departure” for Britain, Reyaad Khan was last month assassinated in an RAF drone strike after security services uncovered his bid to stage a terror attack in the UK.
Jolly ole England has recognized that jihadists are up to no good, and what better reason to drone strike someone than threatening to off the longest reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II? The jihadist who was obliterated was actually a British-born jihadist, who went back to Syria to join ISIS/ISIL. Maybe because he was fed up with bangers and mash and he wanted to chop off heads. Hey, there’s only so much British food a man can take. Have you tried bread and butter pudding? Don’t.
Here’s the funny thing about the UK, though. On one hand, yes, they just snuffed a bad guy. Cheerio! On the other hand, they’re taking in 20k refugees, a few of whom may or may not be (but are, don’t doubt us) ISIS jihadists. Bloody hell. It makes sense if you’ve lived on fish and chips your whole life, don’t judge.
The Prime Minister authorised the strike without the approval of Parliament but said that it did not require a vote because it was an act of “self-defence” for which there was a “clear legal basis”.
The announcement shifted the debate on the migrant crisis. Mr Cameron yesterday announced that 20,000 Syrian refugees would be relocated in Britain by 2020.
This would be funny if it wasn’t so serious. In another act of comedy, Cameron said:
“If there is a direct threat to the British people and we are able to stop it by taking immediate action then as Prime Minister I will always be prepared to take that action and that’s the case whether the threat is emanating from Libya, Syria or from anywhere else.”
And so they will, over the next four years, take in 20k refugees. Who might be from ISIS. Who might want to, like, cut off British heads. Hey, it could be a Henry VIII historical reenactment. Who wants to play Anne Boleyn? Catherine Howard? Any takers?
We’re not sure if Cameron is drunk from all those Guinnesses he needed to wash down the mince meat pies, or if he really is that stupid. Or a Henry VIII history buff.
