    What are your thoughts on this?

    Personally I think Theresa May is right, stripping off his british rights. Extremism is completely wrong. Although this is alleged extremism why would he turn to Somalia? A country in which there is an extremist group present. hmmmm

    I remember reading about this a couple of months ago, I think this explains it in a little more detail ~

    "A letter adds: ‘The Security Service assess that you have been involved in Islamicist extremism and present a risk to the national security of the United Kingdom due to your extremist activities.’ "

    Good, this is something we should be doing more. British Citizenship for non-indigenous peoples is not a right, it's a privilege.

    He was only British in writing and documentation. Not culturally nor was he aligned with us. And nothing of value was lost.

    So he was doing something in Somalia the USA say was naughty, and he claims the USA will mistreat him. And somehow it's all Theresa May of the UK's fault?

    Well it is a little bit more than that. It seems clear that the US wanted him. The guy was a British Citizen so the US would have to go through the formal channels of extraditing him. He then ends up in Somalia and Ms May decides to revoke his citizenship, meaning he was at the mercy of whatever state wanted him.

    Then he suddenly turns up at a court in Brooklyn.

    His family and friends say he is clean. Some say that he and his friends were approached by the security services and asked to become an informant. The upshot - it is unclear what is really going on.

    Also, some of the Daily Mail comments are quite funny. Morons.
