A UK Judge has ordered another judicial review into whether Gary McKinnon should be extradited to the USA to stand trial for hacking into the Pentagon in what turned out to be a successful search for evidence of UFOs. The High Court will rule whether Alan Johnson , the former Marxist and current UK Home Secretary , was correct not to intervene in the US request to try McKinnon under the flag of the USA , knowing that the accused suffers from Asperger's Syndrome.
With an Election on the horizon and Johnson likely to lose his job and disappear into the back benches ( or into the House of Lords) , it will be interesting to see if the new Government feel able to block further attempts by the US Government or whether , as their current position intimates , they simply change the law so that such high profile and embarrassing cases no longer reach the public eye.
