ON ONE hand we are being told to listen to the views of schoolchildren with regard to climate change because at their age, they know what they are talking about, what they are doing, and their views should be listened to. Fair enough.

On the other hand we’re being told to be understanding with regard to the girl in Syria who left when she was “only 15” to join Isis, but was too young to know what she was doing or what she was talking about.

Perhaps someone with a bit of common sense could decide at which age schoolchildren are old enough to know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about.

Personally, I think that once a child is old enough to know right from wrong, they can be judged old enough to know that deserting their country and decamping to join an army of murderous thugs is wrong.

This young lady should be left where she is. We would be giving completely the wrong message to anyone else tempted to act as a traitor to Britain, should she be brought back to Britain - which by the way, is no longer her home.

My heart goes out to her child, but she joined a movement of destructive and deadly assassins who have no thought or compassion for any of the babies or children they have killed.

This girl lost the right to be a British citizen and call Britain her home when she left and I feel no compassion for her at all.
