A cricket conversation with his US lawyer might lead to a way out for Ad-Elaide Al-Qaeda boy David Hicks:
“He told me he’d never felt very partisan about the Ashes and wouldn’t mind much if England took the series because his mum had never claimed Aussie nationality and still carried a UK passport,” Major Mori told Britain’s The Observer.
“My jaw hit the floor. I asked him, ‘Do you realise that may mean you’re legally a Brit?’ We both knew that the implications of that could be stunning.”
Presumably his legal team will now seek to have Hicks delivered to Britain, which has so far secured the return of nine Guantanamo Bay residents. This would represent a reversal of earlier policies which saw Britain sending its criminals to Australia.
UPDATE. Norm Geras, from Dave’s future home, reports on a wild GWB slur. Worse than Stalin, Hitler, and Saddam!
