Campbell: extradite Lloyd's killers.

Ming Campbell at PMQ's asked Blair whether in the light of the coroner's verdict that Terry Lloyd was "unlawfully killed" we could expect the extradition of the those responsible for his death. As we all know the extradition arrangements beteen the USA and the UK are extraordinary: the US does not have to provide any prima facie evidence before extradition can proceed, but the UK must do so. It is a treaty of the kind concluded between an arrogant imperial power and a client state lacking any pride. Blair mumbled some nonsense in reply to Campbell; but we all know the answer to his question. Servants don't make such demands of their masters.
