Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Surely the legal position is to allow her to return to her country of origin, and there to face the full might of the law regarding terrorism.

She knows this and obviously prefers a few years in a UK jail to the prison she has found herself in. Whether she has learned her lesson, is yet to be established, but propaganda got her to where she is, and propaganda could return her to society. But would we spend the time and money sorting out a mess created by youth and stupidity?

Should we punish her family for allowing her to be radicalised? Resposibility starts in the home, after all. Then again - if they are sanguine they have their punishment and would be contrite, but words are cheap.

For sure it ain't a binary option, life never is.
