Oh dear. Terrible post.
Yes. There is an edit facility, and you get eight minutes which should be enough. True colours? Blue of course.
Apologies for the typos, I literally stopped on M4 to post by the road side. That’s how excited I was and still am. Long live Sajid Javid.
I must say I am slightly puzzled by this. Everything I have heard about Begum suggests that she is a British Citizen and cannot have her citizenship revoked because this would make her stateless which is not legal. Is this not the case? Will not Javid end up with egg on his face when he is forced to accept her back into the UK?
That was the question in my head too.
And if we've done it with her why haven't we done it with returning Jihadi fighters before now? Somehow a trained fighter trikes me as a greater danger than a deluded teenage girl.
Since it is illegal (under international law) for the government to make her stateless, I assume that she must be eligible for another passport. According to Channel 4 it may be possible that the is eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship through her mother who also still holds Bangladeshi citizenship.
I don't think the current government understands much about the law.
I see, this seems logical.
He is what he looks like.
I don't mean Ray Wilkins.
Apparently she has or had dual nationality - British and Bangladeshi - so she hasn't been made stateless, she's just had her British nationality revoked.
Is it because the other returning fighters returned to the UK without making as much fuss as possible? I don't defend them or their conduct but if no one notices you, it strikes me you have more chance of getting away with stuff.
A human being stood in front of a building?
Oh that explains it.
A disgraceful decision.
If removing Begum's British Citizenship means she can be prevented from returning to the UK then I will admit to believing to be the correct course of action.
In my opinion her presence would create a danger to the UK and its citizens, one which we could do without. She might not be capable of direct action but she could still influence and encourage others to do so.
It is a harsh step but one I feel justified however I hope I can express my approval in a more dignified way then the OP has.
It allows the Sajid to make himself look 'ard.
A big mistake that I am sure he will rue.
Not least because hundreds of fighters have already been let back in. It takes the media to whip up a storm like this and convince people she's a one woman war machine, while many other much more dangerous people are already back here
I think they do.
I think she is eligible for, rather than currently has, but you may well be correct.
The mother holds Bangladeshi citizenship. Bangladeshi citizenship is provided primarily jus sanguinis, or through bloodline, irrespectively of the place or legitimacy of the birth.Therefore, any person born to a Bangladeshi woman legitimately or illegitimately outside Bangladeshi soil would still be a Bangladeshi citizen.
Seems to me that covers it.
Have you just liked the OP? OMG ...
