“By contrast, Chris Gard and Connie Yates were denied any legal aid in their case against Great Ormond Street Hospital to take sick 11-month-old son Charlie to the US for experimental therapy.”
The British government seems determined to appease Muslims and enable jihad terror and Sharia supremacism at all costs. The lot of them, from Theresa May on down, should be removed from office and tried for treason. But that, of course, would be “Islamophobic.”
