Everything is always so damn difficult.

Comment by Stephen on August 6, 2018 at 7:27pm

Like most of these things, a bit of both. The Government will face pressure not to support extradition unless the death penalty is withdrawn. None of us cares a hoot about these murdering scum but we don't want to set a precedent of open-handed extradition 

Comment by Mrs.B on August 6, 2018 at 6:32pm

Is that fact, or rumour?

Comment by Stephen on August 6, 2018 at 5:54pm

It's difficult because they have been stripped of their citizenships. And everyone knows our courts are too lenient. But i agree unless America can assure the UK Government they won't aim for the death penalty we should not cooperate.

Comment by Mrs.B on August 6, 2018 at 5:33pm

Shouldn't they be deported to the UK, & the UK decide what to do?

So-called 'IS Beatles' El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey dispute extradition

Two Londoners accused of being members of the Islamic State group have called into question the British government's attempt to have them tried in the United States.
Speaking to the BBC from a jail in Syria, El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey also denied they had been stripped of their British citizenship.
The pair were captured in January.
US officials believe the "execution cell" beheaded at least 27 Western hostages.
They are currently being held in solitary confinement in northern Syria after being caught by US-backed Kurdish forces.
They are said to have been part of a cell dubbed "The Beatles" by their hostages, because of their UK accents.
Last month, UK government said it would demand no "assurances" that the pair will not receive the death penalty if they are tried in the US.
"What makes the British government want a British citizen to be tried in America? Like what's behind it?" said Mr Elsheikh.

Seven secularist steps that would strengthen democracy in the UK

In recognition of National Democracy Week 2018, Megan Manson reflects on what still needs to be changed to make the UK a truly democratic, secular state.
This year's National Democracy Week is special because it also commemorates the 90th anniversary of the 1928 Equal Franchise Act which gave women the same voting rights as men. Secularist individuals and groups, including the National Secular Society, were among some of the most active and outspoken campaigners for votes for women. They were on the right side of history then, and they're on the right side now.
Secularism means that citizens determine how a country is run, rather than ancient religious texts. Secularism depends on the idea that every human being, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religion, is an equal member of society. That's why democracy is at the very heart of secularism.
But the fact is our democracy still suffers from inequality in participation. Once of the primary reasons for this is the enormous privilege afforded to religion.
So here are seven things the UK could do that would greatly strengthen our democracy, and broaden the rights and means to participate in the democratic process for every citizen.

Ten years on from the abolition of blasphemy, free speech still needs defending

Marking ten years since the criminal offence of blasphemy was abolished in England and Wales, Stephen Evans argues that the freedom to speak critically about beliefs others hold sacred is far from assured.
This week marks the 10-year anniversary of the abolition of the criminal offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel in England and Wales.
Their abolition in 2008 was the culmination of 140 years of NSS campaigning, in which time one of our own past presidents, George William Foote, served time in prison for publishing 'blasphemous' material in the Freethinker.
It was therefore fitting that the NSS played a prominent role in getting rid of the blasphemy laws – assisting our honorary associates in Parliament, Evan Harris and Lord Avebury, to draft the amendment to the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill which eventually led to MPs voting to abolish blasphemy offences by 378 votes to 57.
