Ask Not For Whom the Bell Tolls it Tolls for Tollman

No man is an Island, no man is safe on an Island.

Turns out that Bush claims the authority to kidnap a friend of Baroness Thatcher

Legal experts confirmed this weekend that America viewed extradition as just one way of getting foreign suspects back to face trial. Rendition, or kidnapping, dates back to 19th-century bounty hunting and Washington believes it is still legitimate.

The US government’s view emerged during a hearing involving Stanley Tollman, a former director of Chelsea football club and a friend of Baroness Thatcher, and his wife Beatrice.


This is what happens when you abandon the rule of law and it couldn't have happened to a nicer baroness.

There's More about this man for all seasons

Glad to hear that Tollman and his wife are friends. Marital tension can add so much stress to an official kidnapping. The Times's copy editors got to understand that we yanks have trouble with the letter of the law but especially with those wiggly things that look like tadpoles that they put in the middle of sentences.
