Disgusting right wing populist decision.

What a vile government the UK has.
what should they do with her ?
Follow their own strategy and have a criminal investigation when / if she returns to the UK. If she has committed a crime then she should receive the appropriate punishment.

How could you seriously convict her of anything? I don't know how you would even go about trying to compile the evidence at the cost of the UK Taxpayer and any top defence lawyer would take the case for free as target practice on the highest stage.

I assume at this stage she'll be back in the UK sooner or later with the Bangladesh news.

Section 11 of the terrorism act 2000 makes it a criminal offence to belong to it orofess to belong to a terrorist organisation in the UK or overseas.
Section 12(1) of the act makes it a criminal offence to invite support for a proscribed organisation and thatís not restricted to money or property

I imagine she could be done under these

It'll be interesting to see what happens. While I have no love for her and think she should spend a significant amount of time in prison, I believe that should be a UK prison.

Wonder what nationality the child is in this scenario? Syrian? British?
Neither.
The baby was born in a caliphate that is not going to exist for much longer. Why does it matter anyway?
The old saying that 'you can't have your cake and eat it' sits well with this young girl, that went on an adventure that included heads cut off and people stoned to death. All the shite that happened, why is this girl so important??

If the child was born before she was stripped of her citizenship then the child is British

Great to see another Dublin player get a car for the year

Professionalism in all but name
Yes he's a hurler. But if he's getting that, what are the footballers getting?

Sure I've seen a few of the ladies team receive sponsored cars recently as well.

In fairness Aidan O'Shea was a brand ambassador for Audi Ballina and got a car for a couple of years and Joe Canning is a brand ambassador  for Audi Galway and has a free car for this year so it's  not just the Dubs.

David Clifford also got a car last week - had it up on his twitter page.

Canít have. Sure only the dubs get free stuff

At the end of the day, you ask the likes of Mike Sheehy how many All-Irelands he won and he can show you 8, same for a lot of the rest of that great Kerry team. They also won the majority (exception 1980) of those All-Irelands in style, whereas Dublin scraped past the post. 5 in a row won't make Dublin a greater team.

Jesus, the ignorance - ask the likes of Cluxton, O'Sullivan and McCarthy how many do they have and they will say six and gunning for seven. Huge difference, eh?
The vital difference, my erudite friend, is that Kerry played on a level pitch with every other county.
They didn't have the benefits of state of the art physical training or sports psychology either. Come to think of it, they didn't have the combined total of 16 other counties to choose from either and more importantly perhaps, the national resources of 50% of it s resources either. (BTW, Simon Coveney said that first, not me.)
I am not being anti-Dublin for the sake of it when I say this.
But I defer to the judgement of Mick O'Dwyer on the subject. (Well, he would say this, wouldn't he?)
According to Micko, the greatest team of all time should compete on equal terms with at least one other side. Kerry beat the socks off all comers during their reign and Dublin...?
What about Mayo? With roughly one tenth of Dublin's population and with tremendous travelling issues, they did remarkably well , didn't they?
So, Dublin may well pull clear of all others in this years championships and all along the route to it and that would mean at least two years clear of the rest. I would be willing to consider them to be the best then but I will wait until and, more importantly, if, that should happen. until then, I'll not commit myself to anything.

I would argue they werent really on a level playing field with every other county. Certainly not in terms of games to win the all Ireland. 4 games could have seen them win an all Ireland. 4 games to win Ulster if you were in the prelim round

Did she actually join ISIS?

What does joining ISIS look like? An application form? Yearly subscription? Changing your twitter bio to ISIS Member? Do you think they get a membership card?

Well theyíre a proscribed organisation. Being a member is punishable with a jail term and/or a fine. But to answer your questions I have no idea. Someone would need to make a finding on it tho

Has she not basically said she went off and joined ISIS?

If she has then it would be a fairly open and closed case I imagine

And what would that closed case look like? She's a UK citizen. I can't imagine the Syrian government will be shouting to keep her around.
Whatís the Syrian government got to do with it?
She has, apparently, admitted she joined isis. They are a proscribed organisation. Membership of a proscribed organisation can get you a jail term and/or a fine. Therefore if she returns that is what she should get. No?

Question - for anyone wanting to take her back.

Would you be happy if she moved into your street for your child to grow up playing/hanging out etc with your child or indeed for her to start hanging out with your children?

No, but that's not the point, is it?

The problem here is that everything is slightly complicated by teeny weeny things like laws and rights.

Im not questioning the laws or rights - simply asking how people would feel about it and if you would be happy?
Grand so.

We've established her legal rights should be upheld, and the law should be upheld.

And that's basically the end of the thread.

So would you be happy if she was moved in to your street? Simple question Sid
No, of course not - but that has absolutely no bearing as to whether she should be allowed to move to my street - if I lived in the UK, of course, which I don't.

There are many people I'd rather didn't live beside me - some of them are even on this forum.

I'd absolutely hate it if Stephen Yaxley-Lennon moved into the house next to me, for instance. That doesn't mean he shouldn't have the right to move into the house next to me, or that I think he should be locked up without due process.

Not liking somebody is not a basis for locking them up or denying them their legal rights.

And it is sort of a shame to have to explain that.

I know this is a serious thread but the line about some of them are even on this forum made me chuckle

GAA Discussion / Re: NFL Division 1 2019 Dubs again?
« on: February 12, 2019, 09:01:39 PM »
I can't understand this craic of thinking Dublin are out of the running to win the league , do ye not think they are capable of winning all their remaining games ? Personally I think they will win it out and in style too.

The top two teams in Division 1 contest the National Football League final. The bottom two teams are relegated to Division 2.

If 2 teams end on one loss each and the Dubs win the next 4 games and have 2 losses they won't qualify

Mayo, Kerry, Galway and Ros all have superior losses to the Dubs . I don't think the Dubs are interested in the League this year

Superior losses?
