Ahem! The statue atop the Central Criminal Court in London does not wear a blindfold at all.

https://www.google.com/search?q=stat...QPgNRpRTIoG7M:
Did I mention the Old Bailey?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Justice

And you no doubt already know that the Old Bailey statue is not blindfold because "her “maidenly form” is supposed to guarantee her impartiality which renders the blindfold redundant." - so my point about blind impartiality still applies to the Old Bailey statue.
Ahem.

Should we ignore Human Rights as and when it suits us?
It’s been explained time and again to you she’s legally automatically entitled to Bangladesh citizenship and we beat them to it to revoke.

I will wait for the courts decision on the matter.

The same way I define ethnically Chinese.Looks like a person of English race.White, blue/ grey/ brown eyes, blond/ brown hair.

Technically she renounced her statehood and became a member of the Islamic state.That that state no longer exists is entirely her problem.She should have thought about that before.
So would you say that white Americans that historically come from England are therefore English?

Are you saying that non white people cannot be English?

Quite.

The whole citizenship stuff is made up to suit whatever is the current line Progressives are trying to peddle.

So she is British because she was born in Britain, and this had nothing to do with the nationality of her parents. But her child (now deceased) was British (even though born in Syria) through HER parentage.

To take the argument the Progressives used to make to get her back here to its logical conclusion, if her children were British through her, she is Bangladeshi through both her parents. Indeed her father actually lives there as I understand it.

Guys you can argue as much as you like about what citizenship she should have. THE FACT IS: she joined a terrorist group in Syria and this crime carries the death penalty in Syria.

They call themselves American but they have European blood.I don't see how it's controversial to say that there are distinct races of different people.Her parents moving to Britain doesn't make them British any more than Europeans colonizing America made them native American.Why the double standards? It's not at all racist to say that most Americans are not native American.Native Americans are a distinct race.The English are also a distinct race.She might hold british citizenship but that doesn't make her ethnically English.

Non white people can be considered English but it takes more than two generations for that.Like the Boers in South Africa.Originally they were from Holland and were foreign invaders.Now they are white South Africans.They are from Africa but they are still genetically and ethnically distinct from black south africans.It would be wrong to say there is no difference in race.A white South African can't just claim to be a black south African like it's the same thing.

It is a right to have legal representation. The argument here is not whether she is a Bangladeshi citizen or not, but whether she is entitled to challenge the government's decision.
Just because we don't like a person or what they are accused of does not remove that person's right to legal representation and an impartial hearing.

And if she cannot afford it, she may qualify for legal aid. Them's the rules, whether you like it or not.

Your point is valid in some respects. However, as ISIS is not a recognised nation, it has no obligation to pay the legal bills of citizens it does not have.
As (until the case has been finalised) she is a British citizen, some of the millions in the British government's bank accounts are apparently going to pay for it.

While I may be, like Hunt, "uncomfortable" with the idea of her being given legal aid, I do at least gain some degree of satisfaction at the apoplectic frothing of the far-right.

But she is a UK citizen. The government stated its intention to remove her citizenship but it turns out that may not be legal. That's kinda the whole point of this discussion!
