re. A specific request for extradition would be assessed on it's merits

I'm afraid you overestimate the independence of the courts in "special circumstances". US want him badly, to make a point to others. And you might call UK a "faithful servant", or a "key strategic ally to the US", but the fact is, he would be put on the first plane heading west, if the US requested it. And the courts? Fuck the courts, don't we have "in the interest of national security" and "in the interest of the public"? Haven't we had those phrases used before when steamrolling over such minor details as "rule of the law"? :(
