Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai the young girl who was shot in the head in Pakistan and later flown to Birmingham for treatment and was later joined by her family has today started school at the £3000 plus a term Edgbaston High School for girls because her family live nearby.

Am I missing something are this girls parents wealthy that they can pay for this preferential treatment and the air ambulance flight. buy or rent a house in Edgbaston and now pay £10,000 plus a year for schooling?

They might be very rich, if they are not then I'm sure they will end up that way.
I think in this instance there is little doubt that this girl can't go home and live in safety. So if we will continue to harbour foreign criminals at our own expense then this girl and her, no doubt extensive, entourage might as well join the party.

According to wikipedia her father runs a chain of schools, so presumably he is reasonably well off. It was reported that the costs of her transport to Britain and the hospital care were paid by the Pakistani government.

I was Genuinely sorry to hear of this heroic girl's injuries, I was Genuinely pleased that our country could help her, now that she is recovered it's her governmts job to protect her.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.

I agree, though am dubious that such a corrupt government as Pakistan's will do so in the long run

Myself

I wish this young girl nothing but the best, after all it is not her fault that she was shot. What I don't want to see is the British taxpayer footing the bill for something that is down to our responsibility. Perhaps all expenses borne by our government can be deducted from the aid we give them yearly.
