“We Have A Lovely Bosom, But It Needs More Vipers…”

Britain has taken the step of repatriating a small number of orphaned children from north-east Syria who had been caught up in the conflict with Islamic State, the foreign secretary has announced.

Dominic Raab said the UK government had assisted their return from the war-torn country in a special repatriation that prompted calls for ministers to go further and allow all British children stranded in Syria to come back.

Remember ‘Conservative values’..? Whatever happened to them?

Raab said that the “innocent, orphaned children should never have been subjected to the horrors of war”, and added: “We have facilitated their return home, because it was the right thing to do.”

Well, if they grow up to blow up, it’s unlikely it’ll be your family in the firing line, eh? So cozying up to the bleeding hearts might win you a few votes, and what have you got to lose?

Few other details were made available and Raab – keen to strike a humanitarian tone on the issue – said the children must be allowed privacy and given support to return to normal life.

By whom..? The ‘communities’ that grew the problem in the first place?

Turkey’s invasion of the border areas in October further complicated the situation, prompting ministers to urgently evaluate whether some children could be rescued amid concerns about whether conditions in the camps would deteriorate.

However Priti Patel, the home secretary, and Ben Wallace, the defence secretary, successfully argued that a full rescue operation would pose too great a security risk – an argument that prevailed over Raab, who had wanted all British orphans to be returned.

There are some true Conservatives left then. Who put security and country before being feted by the people who prefer others to take the risk they know they themselves are protected from…

    As much as I despise Islam, I do not despise children in particular orphaned children whatever their origins, nothing could be more beautiful than helping a suffering child, I am not religious but ” Suffer little children to come unto me “.

      I am not religious and I loathe Islam. But these children are not guilty of anything.

    It might be useful to know what age criteria will be applied in defining a ‘child’.

      Previous experience shows the cut-off age to be around 38.

    Returning them to ‘their communities’ is out of the frying pan into the fire. What does the gummunt intend to do with the children? Abandon them in the British countryside? Hand them over to a feminist Zozchial Verker? Odds are against an MP taking them in themselves, even into a house the costs of which they claim on expenses..
