Keir Starmer Must Go

with one comment

Failure

There can be no excuse for his gross dereliction of duty.  He has totally lost sight of the purpose of his job.  Whatever it takes to get rid of him, he must go.

UK Ministers Surrender Mckinnon To US Kidnap

with 5 comments

It’s said that when Gordon Brown offered Alan Johnson the Home Office he rejected it as a poisoned chalice.  He’s probably right.  It seems to be destroying his reputation just as it has so many others.

Abandoned

Nevertheless, the shameful and deeply treacherous conduct of this disgraced government towards Gary McKinnon cannot be excused.  There is no greater duty on any government than to protect its citizens, particularly those who are vulnerable.  There can be no basis in any system of justice for allowing a foreign power to abduct an accused person away from the scene of their alleged crime.  This is not extradition.  It is illegal rendition, as extraordinary as any.  It is kidnapping.

Alan Johnson, Gordon Brown and the rest are kowtowing to big bully USA.  British justice is in tatters as they offer up another sacrifice to America.  Believe me, they’d do the same to any of us: you, me, your grandmother, your starving babies and our injured soldiers if it suited them.  If they wanted to take Gary Mckinnon to Guantanamo Bay I don’t believe our government would have the courage to stop them.

Spineless Cowards

I call for the entire cabinet to be indicted on charges of dereliction of duty.  Will not even one of these excuses for men or women have the courage and decency to resign over this issue?

These people who call themselves our leaders are a disgrace to each and every one of us.  They are cowardly and spineless charlatans who are dragging our great country through the mire of ignominy and shame.  Gary Mckinnon is a victim of their cowardice.  Nothing can excuse what they have already put him through, let alone what is to come.
