SIR - In an interview with a journalist, Shamima Begum has begged to be allowed back in the UK using the word "pretty please". This is after she joined ISIS in Syria aged 15 in 2015.

There is one thing at that Begum has done right. When deciding she hated the UK, she left.

There are many UK residents today that hate the country they live in. And I'm not talking about any ethnic group or religion, they are a cross section of society, a very cross section!

If all these people that think the UK is to blame for all the world's ills and think our Queen is a white supremacist left our country, there would be much more room and resources for us that don't. And social distancing would be much easier.
