WOW! Just read a report about even more ‘radicalised’ individuals being returned to the UK after being stopped at some Mid East border or another.
Great. That’s a few more, now severely disgruntled extremists in our midst, no doubt prepared to strap on a suicide bomb or spray innocent shoppers with the contents of an Uzi or Kalashnikov at the drop of a burka.
As I stated a couple of weeks ago, why do we insist on and indeed appear to crow about bringing these demented people back into a place they obviously hate and simply don’t want to be?
For God’s, and indeed all our sakes, let them go.
The money these operations must cost is probably mind-boggling. Of course I feel sorry for the parents of these misled youngsters, but I’m afraid that’s the way it goes.
If your kids are old enough to make these decisions and act on them, so be it. Kids run away from home all the time, for various reasons. It’s a tragic fact of life and believe me, forcibly getting them to return is NEVER the answer.
If these misguided parents and guardians think that bringing them back to the family abode will result in everything in the garden being rosy, then they are more demented than their offspring.
Teenagers are notoriously difficult at the best of times; the idea of sitting on the sofa or at the breakfast table with one who would rather be fighting alongside, or become the third or fourth wife of someone who, among unimaginable atrocities, also beheads and burns his enemies alive, is to me positively horrific. I mean what on earth do you talk about? Have these misfits anything in common with any reasonably-thinking civilised person, family or otherwise? Of course they haven’t.
Kids of this type can only learn the hard way. So, parents, the next time your little loves appear to be endeavouring to flee the coup (and they will), give ’em your blessing, give ’em a few quid and drive ’em to the airport.
Hopefully, if they’re still alive and manage to finish up in a tent with a computer, they’ll Skype you and show you how well they’re doing – but don’t hold yer breath.
Well, by the time you read this, the ol’ boy will have once more disgraced himself on OAPs Behaving Badly. Swore I’d never do it again. Ah well, in for a pound as they say.
As a final word on the saucepans, I’ll leave you with a quote from Dean Martin who informed guests in an after- dinner speech that he had seven children and the three words he heard most around his house were: ‘Hello’. ‘Goodbye’ and ‘I’m pregnant!’
Keep the faith
