    IS schoolgirl wants to return

    That's a total red herring. People who are repeatedly exposed to scenes of horror and violence become desensitised to scenes of horror and violence. If you're trying to cite that as a reason why she shouldn't be allowed back, you're barking up the wrong tree.

    That just doesn't make sense. It's like saying that anyone who holds the RAF in high esteem should never be allowed to live in Hamburg.
  3. Isn't this essentially a repeat of the other vague, loosely structured, over-wordy post you put up the other day?

    Opposing hatred doesn't cause hatred - that's a ridiculous logical fallacy.
  5. I agree. Poor writing really.

    IS schoolgirl wants to return

    George Osborne (former Tory Chancellor) said ''I understand the anger of those who say Shamima Begum should not be allowed to return to the UK. But I don’t agree, for a simple reason: she was born in Britain and has British citizenship. Which other is supposed to look after her on our behalf? Syria? Another European country? Can you imagine the fury here if we took a French or Italian citizen who joined Isis? Begum is homegrown and is our problem. It has to happen here. As for her newborn boy, he will be one of the most vulnerable British citizens in the world. Unless we have now given up on compassion and justice – and believe that the sins of the mother should be visited on an innocent baby.'' It's not often you'll find me agreeing with a Tory, but I agree with Osborne here.

    Mr Trump - All discussion here

    You're cool with it, just like I thought you would be. I think it's unfortunate, but ultimately does very little to counter the reality that race hate is on the rise and that this is due in large part to the President being a racist. Yes, and the Liar-in-Chief's constant attacks on the freedom of the press and use of provocative rhetoric have been a large part of that. He even praised a Montana congressman who assaulted a journalist. You're probably cool with that too.

    Please don't start mouthing off about killing women again, it's obscene.

    You're certainly not the sexiest, but you're almost certainly sexist.

    Mr Trump - All discussion here

    What's your view on the 11 year old arrested for refusing to stand for the oath of allegiance?

    Completely facile and spurious reasoning.

    If that's true, how do you account for other forms of non - Islamic extremism?

    IS schoolgirl wants to return

    I don't know about that, but they've killed many, many more than ISIS ever did.

    I think you probably need to direct your ire at a more worthy target. Try the president of the USA, who is a far greater threat than Shamina Begum will ever be.

    IS schoolgirl wants to return

    And let's not forget, as far as we know she hasn't killed anybody.
