If you're celebrating that #ShamimaBegum has had her citizenship revoked, do keep in mind that you are probably being played. No minister wants to say we're bring her back so they've shunted the decision to an appeal court where they know UKgov knows it will probably lose.
What we're likely to get is a protracted court case costing the better part of a million quid and then she will have to come home and face the music. It's our problem and she is definitely a product of our society. Only a Brit could have that sense of self-entitlement.
And I think that she does need to come back. This is a deeply disturbed young lady - still a child in a very real sense. She needs psychiatric evaluation and she needs to be punished. And for our side of it, we must follow the rule of law- because that's how we do.
What she has done is repellent, as is her attitude. There does not appear to be a hint of remorse and she has yet to appreciate the gravity of how wrong she is. We must teach her that she is wrong and that she has made a very grave mistake. She must account for herself.
I don't think we have any business washing our hands of her. This is something we have to understand our way out of and not give in to the mob. I understand the impulse but this creature is ultimately a product of British culture. We need to ask what the hell is going wrong.
But I also want this put down as a marker. She's 19 but still very much an immature teenager an behaving like one. If then we are going to act accordingly taking this into account, that's the end of any talk about reducing the voting age to 16. Teenagers these days are still kids
