The Muslim convert dubbed Jihadi Jack who travelled to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group has reportedly been stripped of his British citizenship. Jack Letts was 18 when he left his Oxfordshire home and joined the terrorists in 2014, marrying in Iraq and moving to Raqqa in Syria. Captured by the Kurdish YPG forces as he attempted to flee to Turkey in May 2017, the 24-year-old has since been held in jail in northern Syria. According to the Mail on Sunday, Mr Letts - who is a dual UK-Canadian national - has had his British citizenship revoked, a move which was one of the last actions of Theresa May's government. A Home Office spokesman said: "Decisions on depriving a dual national of citizenship are based on substantial advice from officials, lawyers and the intelligence agencies and all available information.

THE Tories have been bickering among themselves over whether or not the UK should opt for a a soft Brexit since the referendum. Negotiations between the Government and the EU began on June 19 - but what is the difference between a soft and hard Brexit? What is a soft Brexit? A soft Brexit is generally the term to describe the UK maintaining close relationship with the European Union. This could involve being part of a customs union, in which we would have common external tariffs with the EU and negotiate trade deals as one with them. Some Tories, such as Nick Boles, have argued to a Norway-style soft Brexit in which the UK would have access to the Single Market.

THREE years of Brexit hell has taken its toll on Theresa May and left her completely exhausted. She came into No10 fresh, full of beans and ready to run the nation, but failing to deliver Brexit has left her ready for a well-deserved break. Photographs from 2016 - when she came into office - tell a very different story from snaps taken throughout her leadership. Despite delivering some changes during her time in No10, she failed three times to get her deal passed by the Commons and was forced to resign and make way for Boris Johnson. And all those late night summits in Brussels dealing with the bloc's leaders would tire anyone out. The ex-PM also had to fight off a challenge to her leadership last December when some of her own MPs tried to oust her. And she's faced rebellions from the Remainers in her party trying to wreck Brexit, and the hardcore Leavers trying to get a better exit deal too.
