McKinnon Extradition "frozen"

In another outburst of common sense of the type that seems to be gripping the government as we get closer to the General Election, Alan Johnson has announced he has "frozen" the extradition of Gary McKinnon.

This travesty of justice needs to be sorted once and for all. I doubt President Obama would like UK headlines blasting the U.S. for vindictively persuing the extradition and prosecution of a vulnerable adult with a mental impairment.

He should be tried here in the UK with the sympathy that someone with aspergers deserves, not dragged to some foreign land and justice system.
