A British punk rocker who became an ISIS poster girl has told friends she wants to leave the terror group and return to the UK.
Friends of the Raqqa-based jihadi bride and terrorist recruitment officer is desperate to come home after her husband Junaid Hussain was killed in a drone strike.The convert has previously hinted that she might fancy becoming a suicide bomber herself, writing earlier: 'I know what I'm doing.Paradise has a price and I hope this will be the price for Paradise'.steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.However, steampunk and Neo-Victorian are different in that the Neo-Victorian movement does not extrapolate on technology and embraces the positive aspects of the Victorian era's culture and philosophy.Sally Jones, 45, who once played in a female punk band, ran away from her home in Chatham, Kent, to wage jihad with her toyboy husband in Raqqa, Syria, the terror group's de facto capital.
