THE KIDNAP OF AN INNOCENT MAN
On occasion I diverge from the main theme of this blog, and this is one of them. An urgent situation has arisen whereby a man who committed legal acts in the UK is under threat of imminent extradition to the US for them - Ian Norris who is 67 years old, in poor health, and will be leaving behind a wife who is also in poor health. The UK politicians have abandoned him, and so has the UK press. But it is not impossible that the decent people of the land will not let this atrocity proceed - they will step in. If you are one of these, call your MP and the Home Office Secretary at 020 7219 3000 and demand they stop this. You ought to also call the press - especially the Independent, which, at the request of some US operative, did not print the interview they did with him in 2006. Their # is 020 7005 2000; Susan Arnott is the journalist on this case, not that she is doing much.
