The Telegraph: Jihadi Jack, the Briton accused of fighting for Isil: 'I miss my mum, pasties and Doctor Who - I want to go home'23 February 2019 | 03:55 | FOCUS News Agency
Jack Letts, 23, who fled his middle class home in Oxford in 2014, and was later accused of joining Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), said he now considers the UK his home and he believes he should be allowed to return.
Speaking from the Kurdish prison camp in Northern Syria, where he has been held for the past two years, Letts denounced Isil, but admitted he thought the terrorist attacks on the Bataclan in Paris in 2015 were a "good thing".
Asked if he wanted to return to the UK he replied: "Yes, if the UK accepted me I'd go back to the UK. It's my home. But...I don't think that's going to happen."
His interview comes just days after fellow Briton, Shamima Begum, was stripped of her UK citizenship by Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary, after travelling to Syria.
The 19-year-old mother, who is believed to have joint Bangladeshi nationality, has asked to return home to bring up her baby son in the safety and security of Britain.
But rejecting her appeals, Mr Javid said he would do whatever it took to keep the people of Britain safe.
