Shamima Begum shouldn't be allowed back in the UK

9 comments  Add a comment

Reading in the news recently about Shamima Begum, one of three teenage girls to leave the UK for a new life with the Islamic State group.  I'm shocked and appalled that this is even up for discussion.

She says on Sky News "People should have sympathy towards me for everything I've been through." Well excuse me, we're quite open minded about this sort of thing here in Britain.  Of course you can go off and fight with a bunch of terrorists and when you've had your fun or it's not working out the way you planned, just come home and we'll welcome you with open arms!

Seriously?  Get lost!  Don't even use the kid as an excuse.  But there again, some sections of our society are quite used to playing the system aren't they?  I absolutely think that this person, or anyone else who leaves the country to fight for the enemy should not be allowed back ever, and if by some miracle she does end up back here then she should definitely be tried for treason.

I don't regret it...

Even more worrying, she said "I don't regret it because it's changed me as a person.  It's made me stronger, tougher.  I married my husband.  I wouldn't have found someone like him back in the UK"

Well I wonder what sort of person she'll bring back if allowed back in the UK?  No thanks, and as our parents might say to us, "You've made your bed, now it's time to lie in it!"

Well 'Next', I would say that the Security Services would still like a word or two. I fail to see the advantage to the UK of her sitting in the Middle East teaching her children how evil the UK is, as opposed to being able to keep a close eye on her.
Withdrawing her citizenship had more to do with pandering to Daily Mail readers than any benefit for the UK, it does not make the country 'safer'.

The lawyer representing Shamima Begum's family has written to the home secretary accusing UK authorities of failing to protect the east London girl from being "groomed"

Really? It's our fault you raised a terrorist collaborator (at best).

Apparently her and her family has applied, and could quite possibly get it, legal aid so she can make her way back over here. This is ridiculous if it was up to me I’d turf the rest of her family out to where She is currently residing. Personally I feel, we don’t need people like that in this country, and the sooner we get shut the better. I don’t live far from Manchester 139 wounded and 23 lost their lives.

Shamima Begum, who left the UK to join the Islamic State group in Syria aged 15, has a "right to return to Britain", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said.

There he goes, Corbyn demonstrating he'll roll over and sell our country down the river again. What an asshole! Who's going to vote Labour now?

It was the correct decision and it's about time that someone had the backbone to do what is good and right for this country. IMHO.

Yet again a do-gooder from this country is trying to defend a terrorist that said the Manchester bombing "was justified". Shamima Begum gave up her right to British citizenship when she became a traitor.

Whatever you think, this deluded young lady is a British citizen, so if she arrives at Heathrow she has the same rights as you and I, though I'm guessing that Special Branch / MI5 might like a word with her.

No she should stay in the shat hole she ran to. Remenber, she wanted to help kill none muslims and become a Isis breeder.
