    It's too late, the damage is done. The Muslim population is already sizeable in the UK and growing faster than any other community. How will leaving the UK affect the British Muslim population? It won't, not one bit.

    Look at the $hit they are doing to our country already (mentioned above), this is whilst they are still a relatively small minority, as they grow (and have no doubt about it they are actively trying to grow by every method possible) the problems are only going to multiply.

    The UK is past the point of no return, it is downhill from here, if the so-called liberals have their way it will be sooner rather than later.

    The stupidest surely have but what about the support network that remains? The problem does not lie solely with those "fighters" but the community that has raised,sheltered and actively aided them. The "fighters" are symbolmatic of a much much deeper and more sinister truth within the so-called "moderate" Islamic community.

    I could go on endlessly about this topic, but in short we are screwed. Leaving the EU may have bought us a few years but the greatest risk actually exists within our borders.

    More seriously, leaving EU, ok, but i think staying in integrated intelligence EU networks won't be a big deal to negociate.I undeerstand and admire Uk strong commitment to total freedom of speech, but how doese it apply to call for murders? (genuine question). Islam has a quality and huge fault, it is completely decentralized. There is absolutely no control on who becomes the imam of a mosque, including salafists. This is a huge problem as there is no organization to "certify" imams...

    It doesn't. Calling for murder would fall under inciting terrorism and promoting racial/religious hate, which is not protected under free speech law.

    Austria is to sue Airbus and the Eurofighter consortium over a 2 billion-euro (£1.7bn) deal to buy Typhoon warplanes.

    Its defence ministry said that following an investigation it believed Austria had been misled over the purchase price.

    It could sue the two companies for 1.1bn euros, it said.

    Airbus said the allegations had taken it by surprise and that it was "a political manoeuvre".

    Airbus and Eurofighter charged nearly 10% of the purchase price for offset deals, which involve work for local contractors, said the defence ministry's report. This should have been charged separately, it said, and means it is suing for at least 183.4 million euros.

    It says the 1.1bn euro figure is its calculation for the difference in price between the Eurofighter and a cheaper option.
    'Very expensive'

    Defence minister Hans Peter Doskozil said the investigation suggested "Austria would not have decided to purchase the Eurofighter in 2003 without the fraudulent deception".

    Austria ordered 24 Eurofighter jets in 2002 but reduced its order to 15. It then ordered a review of the purchase in 2012 in light of bribery allegations.

    Mr Doskozil said the first order of Eurofighters used by the German army are "very expensive during operation" and that the Eurofighter programme would cost Austria 80 million euros in 2017. He will commission a new report to find a cheaper alternative, he said.

    The Eurofighter programme is a joint venture between Airbus, BAE Systems and Italy's Leonardo to provide a modern fighter jet for the UK, Germany, Spain and Italy, as well as other buyers. The UK bought 160 of the aircraft.

    "Airbus is surprised by media reports of a criminal complaint and alleged repayment claims on the part of the Austrian Ministry of Defence against Airbus Defence and Space and Eurofighter," Airbus said in a statement.

    "We have received neither notification of a criminal complaint nor any other information regarding this matter or the ministry's accusations. These new accusations have never been raised before; we thus cannot see any foundation in particular for the allegations of bad faith and fraud. Rather, they appear to be contrived, and we deny them vigorously.

    "We see today's announcement as a political manoeuvre. We are, of course, continuing our policy of actively supporting the Austrian authorities in investigating concrete suspicions."​

    If it reduced its order, it changed the deal, therefore deal changes and it has no grounds to sue over price, the end.
