The British Home Office have come up with a solution to the problem of Shamima Begum, who joined the Islamic State group in Syria aged 15. She has been told she is to lose her UK citizenship as she is eligible for citizenship in Bangladesh.
And then realised they had a solution to the even bigger problem of Jacob Rees-Mogg when someone pointed out he’s been living in La-La Land since about 15 years of age.
The Begum family’s lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, said they were considering “all legal avenues” to contest the decision over Shamima Begum’s citizenship.
Similarly, Jacob Rees-Mogg has employed the services of their family lawyer, Horace Rumpole QC, who will use “all legal avenues” to challenge the decision. He’ll have a tough case to fight, as there’s plenty of evidence showing that Jacob Rees-Mogg has been seen spending more time in La-La Land than in the real world for a number of years now, although, according to Jacob Rees-Mogg, Rumpole has employed a team of people to fight this decision including Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and Batman.
The motive for the Home Office to take these unusual steps is thought by many to be because the person in question has been shown in the media to hold radical views and wear unusual clothes.
“I have no comment to make on that at this time,” said Horace Rumpole QC.
When asked, a spokesperson for the Home Office stuck to their La-La Land script by bursting into a song and dance routine.
Ms Begum, who left east London in 2015, had said she wanted to return home.
Where-as Jacob Rees-Mogg appears to want to leave having moved his investment fund in the UK to Ireland.
While figures from 2016 onwards aren’t available – from 2010 to 2015, 33 people were stripped of their British citizenship, all of them dual nationals, on terrorism grounds.
And in April 2018, the Beano took legal steps to comic-strip Jacob Rees-Mogg of his connection to the character Walter the Softy. So, if the Home Office’s attempt to remove Jacob Rees-Mogg’s UK Citizenship is successful and, as some believe, Jacob Rees-Mogg’s La-La Land shatters after Britain leaves the EU, no one is quite sure what state he’ll be left in.
