    This one is trying to deny it.

    So the court heard he had a keen interest in Islam. That sounds like most Daily Mail readers - any time anything bad happens, they are searching to find links to Islam.
    Oh, and he's from Devon.

    Do we know of anyone from Devon who has a keen interest in Islam, guns and terrorism, with strong views about people who disagree with him?

    Yes, but he's three times the age and weight.

    The prosecution alleges Smith had a keen interest in guns and other weapons. “This particular interest may have been a function of his autism spectrum disorder,” Rees said. Police found a blank-firing self-loading pistol and a BB gun shaped like a revolver in his London home – both of which he legally owned – as well as a Mustang knife and a knuckleduster.

    Smith had posted videos of himself online with his replica pistol and knife, and had “liked” other videos of explosives on social media.

    He had searched for a copy of the Isis magazine Dabiq and had saved photos of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Belgian-born jihadi who is believed to have masterminded the November 2015 Paris attacks, Rees told the jury.

    No, you don't.

    But in true WTFH stylee, you will doubtless start with the answer you are hoping to get, then laboriously stumble back through what few facts may be available, and attempt to piece them together to somehow support your ridiculous conclusion.

    And as is the norm, you will be spectacularly wide of the mark. Not that this will prevent you from following the same well-worn path to embarrassment in future.
