Such Has Been The Patient Sufferance
The out of her depth Amber Rudd has authorised the extradition of Lauri Love because she knows that the Americans would otherwise have stopped asking for him.
If Barack Obama had pardoned Hillary Clinton, and it is difficult to see how he could not, then Donald Trump ought to pardon Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange, never mind call off any chasing of small fry from Obama's operations.
I am amazed that the Federal Reserve, the US Army, the Missile Defense Agency and NASA are prepared to admit in public that they were hacked by Lauri Love.
But even if there ought to be any extradition at all to the barbaric American penal system, and that is a highly questionable point, then there ought certainly to be no extradition of anyone from the United Kingdom to any jurisdiction with less than equal reciprocation.
One Nation, with an equal emphasis on the One and on the Nation.
