Christopher Tappin, a retired businessman and grandfather, attacked the extradition system as a “disgrace” and criticised David Cameron for not protecting him. Mr Tappin, 65, was handcuffed and put on a flight to Texas yesterday after losing a two-year legal battle. His wife Elaine was overcome with emotion as he spoke to the reporters at Heathrow Airport before being handed over to US marshals. The Americans have accused Mr Tappin, a former importer and exporter, of trying to sell missile parts to Iran but he claims he was the victim of entrapment. His case is one of a number, included that of alleged hacker Gary McKinnon, that has raised concerns over the balance of the UK and US extradition arrangements. Source: Today's Telegraph. I wholeheartedly agree with Mr Tappin when he stated, "I have no rights. Abu Qatada is walking the streets of London today and we cannot extradite him. He has more rights than I have. "If I was a terrorist, I would not be going to America. I think it's a shame, a disgrace. "The Conservative Government, while in opposition, promised to reform the law and they failed to do so and they've let me down, they've let you down, they've let the whole country down." Once again we see the obsequious crawly bum licking attitude of successive British governments towards the demands that come from the USA, it would appear that we had Poodles Blair and Broon now we have Poodle Cameron; nothing changes.
