Whilst I understand that children need to be protected from being radicalised I really don't know how well this sits with me. That child is going to grow up without its natural family and surely that is storing up repercussions for the future when the child is older.
By the same token I don't know why we keep stopping these families and individuals from leaving. If they feel that their calling is in Syria with the so called caliphate then surely a better way is to just let them go but remove any right for them to return.

A Northamptonshire council is to introduce a £100 fine for anyone not carrying a poo bag when out with their dog?

If that family is so bad, why are they still allowed to be here? They don't want the child to be radicalised but the family seems already radical, and they are adults. I don't get it, are they not a danger to others also?
There was no "might" about it - the children were with their parents who tried to make their way to IS controlled Syria.
