    I don't see anyone moaning about where the money is coming from to send the 'Cracker-style' police over to sunny Portugal, to help find the abducted British 3-year-old.

    Is it 'cause she is white?

    Child abuse is child abuse. If you don't like your cash being spent on the wellbeing of British children, then you need more help than an accountant can give you.

    You're too miserable to get it and I'd just be wasting my time. She may be British, she may even not be, who cares - she's no longer in a bad situation and that brings a wee smile to my face, and seems to make you an angry man.

    I know who I'd rather be given the choice.
    So tell me, what is the point?

    Your argument is based on assumptions, not on facts.

    I wish I could afford to save every person in that predicament. The truth is, I can't. The real truth is that the whole country can't. You've bought the emotional drivel are you prepared to back it up with higher taxes?

    You're making some pretty big assumptions there in forming your opinion.

    There is nothing in the original article on the BBC website that says she is a British Citizen.

    I don't read the Daily Mail - I have zero interest in how Diana died.

    Let's face it, I just don't jump to the same assumptions that you do.

    You support Celtic, I think football is a stupid game.

    You think you're correct in your assumptions, I think you're an ill educated ******.

    See, we're different.

    She lived here 6 years, I got no idea if her parents were settled or not, but IMO living here for the first six years of her life makes her a British citizen, and I suspect given the fact she lived here for 6 years and the fact that she was actually brought back to the UK would suggest she is legally British too. You're pretty quick to acuse others of being a bit slow so do I have to spell this one out for you, again?

    I'll pass on the sheep coment, cause it's not worth it, satisfied that with every post you just look like more and more of a miserable old git, with zero compassion and most probably a lifetime subscription to the daily mail. Oh sorry, you form your own opinions.

    The BBC website does not say she is a British citizen. Have you got a link?

    If you read this carefully, it doesn't mean she is a British citizen, unless of course either of her parents were British citizens. Were they?

    Why were we involved? Because its the primary duty of any Government to protect it's citizens.

    To extradite someone, you have to persuade a court in the country that the person is resident in that they have committed an offence under the law of both countries involved (the UK/ USA Enron thing is not covered by normal extradition law, but by a separate "anti-terrorism" treaty). The "husband" has committed a number of offences under UK law, but probably not under his own country's laws.

    As far as I know, and based on the fact the girl was brought back I think you're British if you're born here.

    Actually just found this:
    Under the law in effect from 1 January 1983, a child born in the UK to a parent who is a British citizen or 'settled' in the UK is automatically a British citizen by birth
    If you read this carefully, it doesn't mean she is a British citizen, unless of course either of her parents were British citizens. Were they?

    See - you do have a good heart really (contrary to what this thread would have us believe)

    You're a sheep snaw, it's about time you admitted it.

    None. However the good news is that "we" own the factory.
