Shamima Begum loses.

Breaking news:

'Shamima Begum has lost her legal battle attempting to return to the UK to fight for her British citizenship.

The Supreme Court found that the former Isis member did not need to be in the country to have a “fair and effective appeal”, overturning a previous ruling by the Court of Appeal.
'

That's a "win" for commonsense IMHO.
Another "win" for common sense is the government's decision to call mother just that; mothers.
Rather than the "pregnant person" woke-warrior aspiration, mother is (again IMHO) far more sensible.

I think there would have been an outcry if she had won, really.

I'm glad she's not coming back but the bigger legal principle is not about her.

Indeed it is not, enough still getting into the country illegally without any checks.

I agree.
Maybe she would have been found and 'disposed of' even.
