    He's not on remand for the fraud charges, he's on remand for "allegedly entering the United States illegally". As he is accused of entering a country illegally I'm pretty sure there would be concerns that he may be a flight risk, hence the remand. No conspiracy.

    @Brian: Don't be daft, since when does the UK put people in prison for 3 months, without a trial, without being found guilty of anything, for something they wrote on a mortgage application?

    The elites are scared of the EDL, otherwise they wouldn't be spending so much time trying to get rid of them. I wonder, are they more scared of the EDL or the muslims.....hmmmm.

    Who'd have thought that the bigoted thugs of the EDL were involved in a criminal conspiracy?
