"Sixty Minutes from now, the Chinese government will kill a mentally ill British citizen.Really..?
Wars have been started over less."
We'd start a war with China over them topping a drug smuggler caught bang to rights?

The odious Clive Stafford Smith:
"Belmonte's pictures of an unshaven Akmal, sitting on a bench in a crumpled white suit and staring despondently across a homeless shelter, tell the story more eloquently than any lawyer could."When even this man is reduced to whining about how pitiful the victim is rather than how he was innocent, you know the case against him is pretty watertight.
And not forgetting Gordon Brown:
"...appalled and disappointed that our persistent requests for clemency have not been granted. I am particularly concerned that no mental health assessment was undertaken. "Of Shaikh?
Or of Gordon, thinking he had the slightest chance of influencing China to do anything?
