The communities for whom FGM is considered essential must be warned that their applications for asylum/ immigration/ depends on adhering to our laws.
They should be warned that FGM carried out on any female who was not already mutilated before entering the UK and any female born here will result in the British Citizenship being revoked and the WHOLE family deported. No other threat will be taken seriously.

Instead of speaking out here, may I suggest this young lady with all iof her Somalian community stage protests aimed at the following?;

1. Tony Bliar's House (at least one of them)

2. Cameron's house

3. The Director of Public Persecutions House

4. The Somalian Embassy

5. The Head of The Muslim Council of Great Britain's House

6. The Chairperson of the GMC's House

7. Mr Forage's House ( next PM)

8. The police Commissioner of the Metropolis House


The reason I suggest this, is that like most domestic violence cases are not taken seriously, like these cases as tiger has been hardly any cases involving a prosecution in the UK which is an utter disgrace.
