UKIP deputy leader, Mike Hookem MEP, has blasted moves for the return a pregnant, 19-year-old jihadi bride to the UK, saying; “her simple lack of remorse for joining Daesh in the first place should act as a warning.”

Mr Hookem’s comments came after Shamima Begum - one of three British schoolgirls to join Islamic State in 2015 – told a national newspaper that she had contacted her family from Syria as she, “needed help in her choice to return to the UK,” despite having no regrets over joining the jihadist terror group in Syria.

Ms Begum, who has already lost two children in war-torn Syria, said she, “really wants to get back to Britain” to access healthcare for her unborn baby.

“At least I know it will be taken care of – at least, health-wise,” said the teenager.

Speaking of Ms Begum’s appeal, Mike Hookem said, “the only reason this woman wants to return to the UK is to access the NHS for her baby. She shows no remorse for joining Islamic State or for the sick actions of the group she naturally still supports.

“Her complete lack of remorse should act as a warning!”

Mr Hookem continued, “this is someone who openly supported the ethos of Islamic State, which include beheadings; torture; rape; genocide; and open acts of terrorism in Europe among their crimes. This is the society Ms Begum found normal!”

“In my opinion, there is nothing ‘normal’ about anything this twisted young lady has to say in her interview, and I believe she and he children would pose a grave threat to Britain’s national security. I would go as far as to also investigate Ms Begum’s family for being in contact with an enemy combatant in a warzone!”

“And at the end of the day, why should the British taxpayer be expected to pay out to support returning jihadis and their children? We would have to be mad! This woman made her bed, and she should accept the consequences.”

“And before all the bleeding hearts get on their soapboxes, this girl knew what she was doing when she left; knows what she is doing now and is trying to exploit the British people’s soft-spot for babies and children to her advantage!
