Bah. We’re just as bad: although I’m broadly pro-EU, the European arrest warrant is exactly as dangerous and stupid as the new UK-US extradition treaty. Which is very. There’s a good chance that the European Court of Human Rights will ultimately find in favour of Gerhard Haderer, but it’s still absolutely insane that an Austrian satirist risks being jailed in a backwards third-world kleptocracy for drawing Jesus as a stoned surfer. Just as it’s insane that three British bankers might be tried in a Texan kangaroo court for allegedly defrauding their London-based employer in London.
Speaking of corrupt bankers, dsquared at the resurrected Crooked Timber has a heartwarming piece on why Paul Wolfowitz might not be such a bad choice after all for President of the World Bank.
