Here’s a picture of our typical English golf club captain on a summers day. Nice blazer and a very nice badge. I bet he’s a real stickler for the rules of golf.

Only trouble is, he’s been entrapped by those cagey under-cover US Custom officers in a sting aimed at smashing arms trading to Iran.

The Extradition Act of 2003 between UK & USA only requires the USA to show ‘reasonable suspicion’ before a subject can be removed from Britain.

Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights organisation Liberty, said “Until the extradition act is amended to put fairness back into the system, no one who indulges in foreign holidays, business dealings or mere use of the internet is safe from being shipped off like freight on the basis of allegations from the USA.”
