This will be a short speech, because it is completely unprepared. I strongly disagree with the last point, because it is not just about money that might be used for terrorism. It is about removing from people who have been convicted of terrorist acts the means to perpetrate further acts of terrorism, regardless of whether the money used for doing so was gained lawfully or not. Frankly, I have no sympathy whatever for terrorists, burglars or anyone else who is convicted of an offence. Once that conviction has been made, the gloves should come off.
