Aisleyne slams ‘spending millions’ bringing ISIS schoolgirl Shamima Begum back

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has hit out at the idea to bring back "dangerous" ISIS schoolgirl Shamima Begum to the UK, claiming that it could cost "millions".

The former Big Brother star, 40, said on This Morning today that the ISIS schoolgirl could have "blood on her hands" and that the money should be spent on the NHS.

She also warned that it could put Britain at risk.

The east London schoolgirl left Britain at 15 to join ISIS and says she doesn’t regret her decision.

Begum, who is now 19, wants to come home so her baby can be ‘ looked after’ – but Home Secretary Sajid Javid has said he will do everything in his power to block her return.

Appearing alongside Kimberley Miners, who was groomed by ISIS but never went over to join them, Aisleyne said that Begum should be blocked from returning.

"We don’t know how radicalised she has become," she said. "She has absolutely no remorse… why would we let her come back into our country when she is such a risk?"

Aisleyne also pointed out that Shamima was "brainwashed and groomed", adding: "We don’t know if she’s got blood on her hands."

"This girl has lived there for four years and we don’t know what she’s been up to," Aisleyne said, "We’re push overs and if this girl does come back we will have to spend millions keeping an eye on her.

"It’s too much money – we could put it back into the NHS."

Earlier today Macer Gifford, who flew to Syria to fight against the Islamic State, said on GMB she was an "incredibly dangerous young woman".

However, a former Met Superintendent, an Islam convert captured by the Taliban and an ex-Guantanamo Bay defended the schoolgirl.

Yvonne Ridley, who was captured by the Taliban in 2001 and converted to Islam, argued we were talking about a child who was "groomed".

She said: "She was a member of essentially a death cult. Goodness knows how many eyes are on her. She’s been brutalised by war. We don’t know what she’s gone through. We don’t know if she feels fearful.

"Apart from this catastrophic failure we’ve heard about from education and police we also have to recognise she could really help the intelligence services as well and what were the triggers that made her go."
