  • You filmed her losing her citizenship?

    Was it really necessary to film her reading that her citizenship had been revoked? Let me be clear. She joined a terrorist group which is inexcusable. I have no sympathy for her situation. But you exploited her for your own means. Take a leaf out of Josh Baker’s approach to treat everyone fairly. You exhibit gutter press morals.

  • Bring them all back

    For me the main question is this: Is it decent behaviour for countries like the UK to dump these people in the Syrian and Kurdish regions for them to deal with for the rest of their lives ? Each nation should take back their people and deal with them under the laws of that country. I don’t believe this girl is a threat to anyone and neither are the hundreds of children born to ISIS brides who deserve a chance of a decent life.

  • Genuine security risk

    She has no real attachment to her family in the UK, no affection for this country and often states she feels unloved and her most valued relationships are with her friends who also absconded to ISIS. I would be very afraid regarding her future behaviour and the likelihood of her committing terrorist acts should she ever return.
