Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
George [Osborne, former Chancellor] and the `ISIS Bride', Editor's Reply
... I understand the anger of those who say Shamima Begum should not be allowed to return to the UK. After all, she supported a terrorist cult that killed Britons and, in her interviews, she shows little remorse.

But I don't agree, for a simple reason: she was born in Britain and has British citizenship. Which other country is supposed to look after her on our behalf? Syria? It can't look after its own citizens. Neighbours such as Jordan and Turkey? Since when did they have to take the British citizens we don't want? ...

Agreed again - it's our problem but this whole reply implies the British Government had no involvement in Syria. Don't talk about compassion and justice. It was the British Government which created the conditions for terrorism and war to take hold in Syria, Libya and Iraq. The underlying reasons why she joined ISIS can be debated but it doesn't reflect well on the British Government whichever way you look at it.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
