Natural inclination is to say stuff her, she's made her bed. But this is about more than that. Do the government of the day simply have powers to cancel your rights and force you to live elsewhere. She has Bangladeshi heritage so we just force the problem on to them? What if we were to get an anti-semitic party in power, do we see the law of precedent used and Jews being forced to leave for Israel because they also have dual nationality.

Fact is, she's British and she's our problem. Difficulty though is investigating and then proving her guilty of any crimes. Otherwise do we just let her back in as if nothing's happened? One thing though, I'd get her to sort out getting back here or getting to a UK embassy (probably Turkey). I wouldn't risk a single British troop or diplomat being sent there to bring her back.


Wider issue though is that this is just a Javid play for PM. He knows that legally he's in the wrong. He's playing to the gallery; he'll happily take it to the courts and be defeated. But it'll show that he's tough on immigration and terrorism and the usual crowd will lap that up. That's all that's really happening here.

Wasn't necessarily referencing Labour, just that I'd read elsewhere of this possibility and thought to share it.


Then I read this just now.

Just hours after Jeremy Corbyn said of ISIS bride Shamima Begum: “Taking somebody’s citizenship away is not the right thing to do. I think she should be brought back,” Guido can reveal the letter from John McDonnell to then Home Secretary Theresa May in July 2014 challenging her to strip any British citizens who served in the Israeli Defence Force of their British citizenship. McDonnell writes:

“Will you be warning any British citizens considering engagement with the IDF that, in line with established British Government practice (e.g. the deprivation of British citizenship from, to date, at least 40 UK passport holders who have been involved in the Syrian civil war), such engagement may put their British citizenship in jeopardy?”


apologies for it being from Guido (google sent me there. Must be only the second time I've been on the page.) But bloody hell.

Report PorcupineorPineapple February 22, 2019 11:45 AM GMT
I'm not a fan of populism to be honest. The public's view can be (fairly easily) manipulated and there's quite a big herd mentality and not much nuance. You see the frequent moans of criminals being let off or not dealt with harshly enough but don't get to hear the other side where judges can explain that the laws stipulate the sentence and his hands are fairly tied. We also don't hear the knock on effects.

As with my example above, you can't just cherry pick one person at random and decide to ignore the law just for her. It doesn't work like that. If a populist government decided to change the law so a person could be deprived of their nationality and right to live here because of something, unless that reason was incredibly specific (and history tells us it wouldn't be) then the chances are it could then be used again for more nefarious reasons. Look at what's happening elsewhere in the world.

The point is the law is supposed to be above whims and currently popular opinions. They have to work in tandem with international law and various treaties with other countries for one thing. But our parliament and judges are supposed to be experts in their field charged with considering these properly having weighed up all available evidence, not just knee jerking because it'll win some votes. Granted some MPs aren't that way inclined (see Javid, above) but that's how it's supposed to work, and by and large it does.

I'd want much more investigation and evidence into something to change the law rather than an emotive decision personally.

Agree with Pineapple completely.

Due process and the law should be followed however unpalatable that may be. Making up laws or changing them on the back of a single issue/case rarely ends well.

Where i disagree with pineapple is around Javid. I agree he is attempting to seem tough but think this will backfire on him he will ultimately have to back down on this one. Competence in leaders is a key quality and he isnt displaying it here.

The UK let the mother in and then let the father in.

She was born in the UK. It appears the father was not around much. Here mother died very suddenly from cancer in the months leading up to her getting radicalized and leaving. She would have been extremely vulnerable at that point. She was basically groomed. We cannot ignore grooming victims because of how they turn out.

We really need to find out what the process was for this to happen. Who did it and how? Were family members involved? Was the wider local community involved? Or was it all online?

This is the case in the press. The reality is there have been hundreds of actual fighters coming back. The stories were not as newsworthy so not in the press.

You know guys, I don't post on these forums anymore because I find some of the postings on various subjects juvenile, nasty, ignorant and downright ANTISEMITIC. I find that more and more postings are particularly offensive. I hereby state that I find Paddy Power/ Betfair GUILTY of condoning antisemitism by allowing certain posters to continue posting while banning anyone who remotely mentions the Religion of Peace. The reason I have broken my  silence, which will continue after this posting, is to mention the total ignorance of Porcupine evidenced by his statement "Jews being forced to leave for Israel because they also have dual nationality." I have in all my time on these forums never ever read such drivel. I welcome being informed as to exactly how many of the approx. 260,000 Jews in the UK have dual nationality with Israel. Just when I read total cr*p on here and think I can't read anything worse, something even more ridiculous crops up. They might choose to leave for Israel because of The Right of Return, but dual nationality for most, NEVER. By the way Porcupine, you are NOT one of the posters who I accuse of antisemitism. I have been on these forums for over 15 year. They used to be entertaining, sometimes informative, sometimes educational. Now they have become nasty, offensive and total SH1T. The so called moderators are banning mainly the wrong people.

That's my rant. Good luck to my friends and those who don't like me can just do one. I will not respond to any comment on this but will report any offensive response. I pride myself on NOT ever reporting anyone, but I am quite prepared to start now!

If she has committed offences against the UK well then she should face British justice.

Dual citizenship is a cop out and the innocent child is deserving of British justice also.

This begum episode is reminding me of the refugee crisis. I kept telling people here on the forum and in person as well, that German authorities were bringing in refugees as soon as they entered Austrian territory. Similarly, the Italian navy was busy 'rescuing' migrants and bringing them to Europe. At that time, all you'd hear from people was 'the Koran tells them to take over infidel land', the koran tells them to breed like crazy, its in their culture to kill etc etc etc. Obviously it became apparent later that this was a planned scheme, but when it was happening people were expertly kept busy, because the govts know it won't take much hardwork to convince people to hate islam.

The same thing is happening here. Begum was born in UK, to parents who were UK citizens.

If she claimed bangla nationality before claiming british, the british govt should have her bangla ID number.

If she claimed british nationality first and then bangla, she couldn't have done it without the authority of the british government. Which is why the british government should know exactly when she got her bangla nationality.

Yet all we hear from the home sec is that he can revoke her nationality because she has dual nationality, conveniently ignoring the details of her bangla nationality.

The public response is as stupid as it was during the refugee crisis. Blame the girl, curse IS, judge her whether she really is sorry or not etc etc. Yet the one thing that should solve the issue, namely government's record of her dual nationality, is not even mentioned!!!

@impossible123 I can understand your reluctance to not believe the bangla authorities. But a country cannot prove that someone isn't their citizen. Its just not possible. What do you expect the banglas to do? Provide you with a list of all bangla citizens to prove miss begums name isn't there?

This is purely a legal matter(Even if she launched nuclear missiles towards England, her right to return cannot be taken away from her, except in case of dual nationality. So her joining IS is completely irrelevant to her right to return). Anyone remotely familiar with int law or matters of immigration can easily see how Sajid is fooling his people.

Countries around the world go to great lengths to sign extradition treaties with other countries, so that they can try anyone who is a threat to them in their own courts. But in this case, its the opposite. The criminal wants to come back, but the govt doesn't want her. To some extent, it is understandable why. But when the drama has reached such a level, surely the easier route is to bring her back and try her? Or is that the government doesn't trust its courts?

That is of course not possible, so when begum comes back to the UK(which she obviously will), he can claim to have done his best to stop her. Quite impressive Shocked
