The folly of Welfare State

From the Daimnation:
Around the time of the 7/7 bombings in London, a Sunday Times reporter went undercover as a member of the "Savior Sect", successor to the supposedly defunct Islamofascist group Al-Muhajiroun.

You can read the entire story or an exceprt by Damian Penny but my favorite part is this:
At 8pm a bulky figure with a long beard and flowing white robe picked his way across the open field in the twilight with the aid of a walking stick. Two hours late, Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed had finally arrived.

A Syrian with seven children who has lived on benefits for 18 years, this extremist cleric has been investigated by police for using inflammatory language but he has never been prosecuted.
