The British city trader who fought ISIS… and won

A former public schoolboy who gave up his high-flying City career to fight against Islamic State has told of his part in the dramatic battle to liberate the jihadis’ Syrian stronghold of Raqqa.

Macer Gifford, 30 – believed to have been the only UK national to fight in the battle for the city – was a currency trader before he joined Syrian rebel groups.

    They are going to put this guy in jail before they put any ISIS terrorists in jail.

    “He now fears he will be arrested by British police because he feels the
    Government is tougher on those who fought IS than the actual terrorists”.

    That’s crazy talk, man.
