Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
There's a lot of speculative thinking going on here. She's a citizen of this country and should come home if she wants to. Then she needs to be interrogated. Big time. If she's allegedly committed any offence, she should be tried according to the conventions of our justice system. We do have ways of dealing sensitively with mothers with babies. There is every possibility that she's been groomed, and every possibility that she is currently in a place where she can't say what she really thinks, and what she's saying right now should not be regarded as in any way incriminating, indigestible though it is. Beware of tabloidism, yeah? Finally, she could contribute hugely in persuading other young people to resist radicalisation. Who knows? At the end of the day, we can all have opinions, but we can only have informed opinions if we are informed. Which, currently, we are not, not sufficiently.
