Excellent.


His parents have branded the government cowards, just no.

They are cowards, playing for political advantage. This man should be brought back to this country and held to account for what he has done. If we need new legislation to prosecute people like him, so be it. British terrorists should not be the problem of other countries. I don’t feel any sympathy for this guy, but I certainly do feel we should take responsibility for him.

Simple question, how do you get him back in the U.K.?

My understanding is that’s he’s being held by YPG, who are stretched pretty thin right now, and would probably welcome being able to hand the guy off to someone else. He could be picked up British government personnel in Turkey near the border with Syria.

He is a terrorist, but he is British and it is unfair on Canada for Britain to just let Canada deal with it when he was born and raised in Britain. He should be brought to Britain and given a fair trial.

Just like shamima Begum good, this will be my first and last post to this thread as last time I got involved I ended up with warning, for 'responding' to a terrorist sympathiser who was later banned. I don't regret what I said and I will say it again if I come across more poisonous scum.

ISIS are scum they deserve nothing more or less than a slow and painful death. End of topic as far as the bridge is concerned

Not surprised, all terrorists who join foreign terror groups should be stripped off their citizenship, for treason and for the safety of all of us

Right decision. One less problem to have in this country. What I will say, is that I'm very surprised by his parents reaction? At the time when the story first broke about him leaving at the country, I actually believed they would admonish him for what he has done. To say the government are cowards in this instance is so far off the mark.

Joins an anti-UK terrorist group. Gets upset when the UK stops him from returning.
You couldn't make it up.

Another foolish act by Mr Javid. He is disowning British nationals and showing the world that the UK has contempt for its citizens.

He's a Canadian national, they can deal with him. This is (legally) a very different case to that of Begum.

That's not very nice. Sure he made some mistakes here and there, but haven't we all.

Yes, this is legally different but the same outcome. The terrorist was born in the UK, followed the British education system and lived among us as one of us. Now, we look for a loophole to throw him away. It is abhorrent.

It shows that anyone with dual nationality is not safe and are second class citizens where the government can discard them. Yet, we want these same people to show unquestionable loyalty to our country. It is foolish.

A mistake is getting caught with you girlfriend in the back seat of your dads car while you are wearing your mum’s underwear. Not joining a terror group.

I think any YPG member that approaches the Turkey border will find themselves shot very quickly.

People with dual nationality are safe as long as they don’t join a terror organisation.

That is not the point though. We have sent a strong signal to them that they are not really British. Yes, they could have the passport, sing the anthem, attend our schools and think they are, but then we throw them in the bin because they have connection to another random country.

This is why patriotism is dying in this country, we seem to talk a lot of rubbish about what it means to be British. We should not discard one of our own. They must have our sovereign protection and find justice:
