Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Yes Steve - to be honest that's the very thing that makes me wonder.

Of course, you can't generalise. But I taught for many years in the inner ring of Brum. Mostly down the Soho Road where all the riots were.
And I would say that by and large, kids with Asian and West Indian backgrounds were much more closely supervised by their parents than most of the white kids.

Of course, times change. In those days everybody knew everyone else - there was something of a village atmosphere. No one could fart without everyone in the area knowing about it. And that would true about everyone North of the city. You'd pass on some news to someone in Perry Bar or Erdington - and nine times out of ten, another member of the family would have already passed it on.

I don't think you could set up a terrorist group without your Mum finding out.
