How quickly sadness can turn to embarrassment and anger

9 March 2019

I was originally saddened that the Home Secretary wouldn’t let a British teenager whose two previous babies had died return to her home so the third could survive;  I was then embarrassed to live in the country whose Home Secretary cancelled her British passport.  Then Shamima Begum’s baby was born, and died, in a refugee camp and I’m now angry that the Home Secretary probably won’t be charged with manslaughter.

  1. I couldn’t’ve put it better myself. When I read the news that her baby had died I was furious that I live in a country which doesn’t trust it’s own system of justice. She should never have had her citizenship revoked, she should have returned to this country to have her baby in safety and, if appropriate, faced the consequences of her actions in a fair and balanced way. Her baby need never have died and it’s hideous.
