He really does seem to be a moron. A dangerous moron, but still a moron.
If he makes his way to our embassy in Turkey, then we’re obliged to allow him home. The PM has hinted he’ll face charges if he does get home.
I have a good idea which may encourage him to stay away. Rather than just hint at what may happen if he returns home, be explicit about it.
The Solicitor-General should announce that charges under S13(1) of the Terrorism Suppression Act have been laid against Mark Taylor for participating in a group that is a designated terrorist entity.
This carries a maximum sentence of 14 years jail.
The thought of up to 14 years in jail could be a strong deterrent to Taylor to not try and come home.
