Brit MP sparks row by saying jihadis should be allowed to go to Syria so they can die fighting for ISIS

Senior Labour MP Frank Field was branded irresponsible last night after claiming it was ‘fine’ for radicalised British adults to join Islamic State in Syria – because if they were killed, it would boost Britain’s security.

The former Minister declared he was worried ‘not one iota’ about British extremists going to fight in Syria.

Mr Field said: ‘I think we should have no worries about letting them go because the chances are some of them will get killed and that increases the security of this country.

By all means encourage them to leave, pay the airfare in fact, just don’t ever let them back.
