Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
You may not agree that she should be brought home, rather than that she should be forced to make her own way home unsupported. Actually, that makes you an inhumane idiot. Of course it would cost us, you brainless gits bray about. But you self-same brainless gits never protest at the hundred billion that armies of accountants relieve billionaires of in terms of tax liabilities every year. That's all hunkydory with you Tory bigots, yet you'd deny the three or four grand it would cost to get this young woman and her baby home. So I'd like to set you a challenge, or a question, see it as you will:

I assume you are volunteering to go out and extricate her from what is still a war zone or are you happy to risk British lives so long as your own is not one of them?
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Syria. British nationals in Syria should leave by any practical means. Consular support is not available in Syria. The UK has suspended all services of the British Embassy in Damascus and all diplomatic and consular staff have been withdrawn from Syria. British nationals requiring assistance should make their way to a neighbouring country where the UK has a consular presence.

The situation remains extremely volatile and dangerous. High levels of violence persist throughout Syria, including full scale military operations involving the use of small arms, tanks, artillery and aircraft. A number of chemical weapons attacks have taken place across Syria.
