More than a few jaws dropped when Britain's Supreme Court ruled a few days ago that the "Isis bride" Shamima Begum should not be allowed to return to Britain to fight the government's decision to strip her of her British citizenship. Could it really be that the Supreme Court justices had actually done the obviously sensible thing and decided that the security of the country was an overriding priority in a human rights case? It could be; and was.
