"Canada is disappointed that the United Kingdom has taken this unilateral action to off-load their responsibilities."
And that they didn't do it first. :nod:

Trudeau does seem to have the habit of making these grand liberal gestures - accepting unwanted refugees from the US, reversing Canada’s ability to strip terrorists of their citizenship and welcoming them home - only to get very cross when people actually take him up on his offer. It’s almost if virtue signalling is not a sound basis for policy formulation after all :p

The term virtue signalling seems tailor made for that bloke. Remember him offering to take in the refugees that Trump was turning away?.......on a temporary basis.

Why can't we just refuse access to these people? Why can't we tell 'Jihadi Jack' to **** off back to Syria if he wanted to be part of it all so much? If chunks of ISIS are now ****ed, dead or in jail then that's your choice cockwomble, deal with it.

Crikey, we agree on something. It's been a while.

That would be my way of dealing with him.

Nothing to really get indignant about here folks. I haven't seen anyone suggesting that we should take him back other than the poor Canadians who are now stuck with him.

Worrying in some respects, but I think this is a fairly black and white thought process for people like this. If you're stupid enough to think it, let alone actually go to Syria then you deserve everything you get.

Well, apart from the outrageous sense of entitlement displayed in comments from the guy himself and his stupid parents.

Indeed, now both with convictions for funding terrorism. The “we’re terribly nice and middle class so the rules don’t apply to us” defence evidently didn’t wash with the judge.

Still, nobody's suggesting taking him back other than his parents. So indignation would probably be better directed at something else.

Not really. The arrogance on display from Letts and his parents is pretty breathtaking as is the hypocrisy from the Canadian government. A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian only until empty rhetoric meets hard reality.

OK then, splutter on. It was just a suggestion to save energy. :)
