Isa Ibrahim was a troublemaker at my school, but drugs and Islamism made him a terrorist

The blank stare was unrecognisable when Isa Ibrahim appeared on last night’s News at Ten. But it was definitely him – Andy, one of the most difficult boys I came across during my time in education. Now a young man, he had become “Isa”, sentenced to ten years in jail after police discovered his plans to suicide bomb a Bristol shopping centre.
When I knew Ibrahim – before his conversion to Islam and his change of name – he was a troublemaker, but certainly no terrorist. He was a couple of years below me at Downside, a Catholic school near Bath which was all boys until 2005. Even as public schools go, it was notably tough – many more of my schoolmates ended up in the Army than went to Oxbridge.
Ibrahim didn’t last long. Yes
