But we would still be debating if this was fair to strip citizenship from someone born in the UK. She would have still been outside the UK regardless.

There was no information on her location nor whether she was even alive. The interview she gave to The Times was effectively her confession.

:lol: Like some wanted criminals who give interviews and the police can track their location and request assistance in having them arrested.

Worked for El Chapo. Egotism leads to people to do very stupid things.

Good.

That would tidy up the situation nicely.

I guess she is just looking for sympathy, and she hopes someone will take her to Europe.
There is also an article about her and being threatened in "Die Welt". A few odd comments by Germans to her being threatened suggest there should be a European solution since Britain stripped her of her citizenship.

Isn't she a citizen of the EU anyway so perhaps some other EU country could help her out if they wish.

Her presence with IS was acknowledged by parliament back in 2015.

When she left the UK, yes, but there had been no reports of her until last month.

The UK has dealt with it .

No-one wants them on their home soil and rightly so.

She made her choice. She is still making that same choice. She is clear that she wishes to be with her ISIS terrorist husband.
