Hamza The Estate Agent

“STUMP DUTY,” says the Mirror’s headline. It’s one-eyed, hook-handed purple people eater Abu Hamza. He’s back. And he’s in the property game.

The report says that Hamza has paid £220,000 in cash for a house in Greenford, West London.

Currently residing in a compact and bijou cell in Belmarsh, South London, Hamza knows a good deal when he sees it and has purchased the four-bed semi.

He might be a “maniac”, as the Star calls him, but Hamza realises that with house prices rising every day property is an investment opportunity he cannot afford to miss out on.

Coincidentally, Hamza bought the house in October 2004 while he was amassing a legal aid bill that, as the Times reports, will cost taxpayers more than £250,000.

Patrick Mercer, the Tory homeland security spokesman, says: “This is outrageous and makes an utter mockery of how the Chancellor has slipped up in dealing with terrorist financing.”

And rent-a quote Labour MP Stephen Pound tells the Mirror: “Paying £220,000 for a house rings every bell in the orchestra and someone needs to go through the deal with a fine toothcomb.”
