Hypocrisy of a weakling Foreign Secretary
Miliband's values are all wrong...if he is genuinely angry about the Chinese treatment of Akmal Shaikh, then why does he do nothing about the continued United States persecution of British computer hacker Gary McKinnon? McKinnon's mental problems are far better documented than Shaikh's, while his crime of computer hacking is far less serious than heroin smuggling. Yet the Foreign Secretary has not dared to utter a word of protest to the U.S. government, let alone haul in the U.S. ambassador for a richly deserved dressing down. Peter Oborne
