Shamima Begum and the Jamaica 50 prove it - the Britishness of black and Asian people is conditional
Shamima Begum was born and bred in the UK. This is the country where she was groomed and radicalised before joining Isis in Syria. Many of the group which has come to be known as the “Jamaica 50” arrived in the UK as minors (as young as two, five, seven and 11 years old). This is the country where they committed offences - sometimes minor - and were imprisoned.Their cases are, of course, very different. Begum was a British citizen, whose citizenship was revoked while she was abroad. The Jamaica 50 were Jamaican nationals, who were detained in the UK and scheduled for deportation (thanks to legal action, only 17 were deported). In both cases, however, the British government’s response was the same - “we don’t want you here”.
