Boris went up in my expectations...
... when the letters came out from Police Chief Sir Ian Blair demanding Boris withdraw his "the police were trigger happy in the Menedez shooting" comment.
I reckon Blair was wrong to demand Boris shut up. Boris was right, and even if he wasn't he was entitled to voice his opinion.
That Boris didn't immediately roll over to the Rozzers showed promise that's rarely seen these days. If a senior politicians can't protect his own right to free speech from overzealous rozzers then how can the rest of us?
As for this case, again I agree with Boris. The extradition treaty is one sided, it was Tony Blairs feltching of Bush and should be made more balanced.
I hope the courts kick it out, since Parliament decides what is a crime here, not foreign powers, yet that treaty permitted extradition for offences that are not crimes in the UK but are crimes in the USA, it did not require it to be an offence in the UK. It had the effect of letting US define a crime to apply to the UK, that was not defined by Parliament.
Since Parliament is the ultimate authority that was not consistent with Parliamentary authority.
