Quotes

An RAF spokesman said: "Reaper are committed to Afghanistan for the forseeable future."
"He gave me some contact details and said 'contact this lady and if I come over to Canada he will take me up'."
"We should also do more to prevent potential fighters from travelling to the region, and promote an effective, mandatory programme of de-radicalisation for anyone who is drawn into the fringes of extremism in Syria and Iraq."
"That process will continue and the British public should be in no doubt that we will take the strongest possible action to protect our national security."
