The UK and extraordinary rendition

It’s Friday night and it’s St Patrick’s day, which means one of the most drunken of the year. When better to release an official admission that UK airports were used in “extraordinary rendition” flights SEVENTY-THREE TIMES since 2001, despite umpteen previous ministerial denials?

Update: Oh yes, and Labour has also admitted receiving �14 million in undeclared loans in the run-up to last year’s General Election, in case you missed it amidst the frivolities. That one’s less likely to be ignored by the press, though – in some ways, that could be seen as part of the attempt to bury the renditions story…

  1. I HAD missed that story because of the endless retelling of the facts of the loans.
    I suppose it's all the same story really selfish, corrupt, morally deficent ministers lieing and tell 'untruths'
