Home Secretary wishes to arbitrarily revoke rights of someone the public doesn't like. Worrying thing is that this may work. If it does work, it will encourage further moves of this kind. And it will be easier for them to do so after Brexit, assuming we leave ECHR.
“Someone else’s problem” is hardly a moral - or, probably, effective - response to the radicalisation of a teenager who was born and grew up in Britain.
However horrific her defence of ISIS, if the Home Secretary can start with stripping this woman and her week old child of their citizenship for his leadership bid....where does it end? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes isn't just about batman.....
It means you can abhor everything Isis stand for and also stand up to a Home Secretary who is acting unilaterally to rewrite citizenship rights because without scrutiny history teaches us such behaviour never ends well…it’s not an either or…
I’m afraid that for various reasons I think today’s decision to strip Miss #Begum of her UK citizenship is a mistake & a dangerous precedent. She was born here, educated here & is our responsibility. We should defend our system & she should be brought back to face the UK courts.
Home Secretary can only lawfully strip citizenship from dual nationals
But Begum case seems premised on her right to claim to be Bangladeshi
Sorry but aren't we just steps away from treating (part) Jews similarly because they *could* become Israeli under Israel's Law of Return?
