He will say later: “16 years ago, I warned against the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
“I said it would set off a spiral of conflict, hate, misery, desperation that will fuel the wars, the conflict, the terrorism, and the misery of future generations. It did, and we are still living with the consequences today.”
Those changes meant that although four senior judges considered that Khan was dangerous, he was to be automatically released half-way through because of Labour’s 2008 law. That is why we are determined to change this & ensure dangerous terrorists serve their full sentence (16/16)
Jeremy Corbyn believes that terrorists should ‘not necessarily serve full prison sentences. We believe they should serve every single day of their sentence. Who do you trust to keep you safe? https://t.co/Ie67aReqyA
What happened to Usman Khan and why was he allowed out last December?
Mr Khan was jailed in 2012 for terror offences under an Imprisonment for Public Protection sentence (IPP) which allowed him to be held indefinitely until the Parole Board decided he was no longer a threat to the public.
Under the Coalition Government, those such systems were replaced with extended sentences – which carry a minimum term and ensure those cases are reviewed.
Mr Khan then successfully appealed his IPP sentence and was given a different sentence called an Extended Sentence for Public Protection (EPPs) in 2013.
That was for 16 years – of which he served eight and was released in December 2018.
But the Parole Board said they did not review Mr Khan’s case at the end of his prison sentence, and were not involved.
The PM claims that Labour changed the law in 2008 which removed the requirement of Parole Board approval in EPPs, and instead it would be automatic after half the sentence.
“Had Labour not changed the law in 2008 Khan would not have been automatically released in December 2018,” the PM tweeted earlier.
“Although four senior judges considered that Khan was dangerous, he was to be automatically released half-way through because of Labour’s 2008 law. That is why we are determined to change this & ensure dangerous terrorists serve their full sentence.”
Boris promised last night to make sure that anyone convicted of terrorism serves all of their sentence – or at least 14 years.
Today it was revealed that the London Bridge terrorist was banned from entering London as part of his licence, but was given a one-day exemption to attend the ex-convict event where he began the rampage.

Boris also insisted there would be no tariffs or checks on goods going from Northern Ireland to Britain – contrary to what the Brexit Secretary has said in the past.
Mr Johnson said: “There will be no tariffs and there will be no checks, and what we will ensure is that the whole of the UK – Northern Ireland and the rest of us – can come out.”
He was also blasted over his lack of plans for social care.
Boris admitted: “I accept that the full plan needs to be developed.”
