In the USA there is no NHS and the anti-Obama camp and other tea-leaves are fighting tooth and nail to prevent one being created.  So how does one get health care when you have no money?  Well unemployed Richard James Verone decided that the only logical thing to do was to get himself put in jail.  He went into a bank, handed a note to the teller saying he had a gun and that the teller should hand over $1.  He then went and sat down and wait to be arrested.  They get free health care in jail.  Good job Ken Clarke's reforms never got passed - when Lansley sells off the NHS folks would have had to plead not-guilty to get health-care!


Is this the modern day equivalent of shipping someone off to a foreign land on the allegation of a trivial crime?  Whether Sheffield Hallam University student, Richard O'Dwyer, 23, is guilty or not of maintaining a website that tells people where they can download copyrighted material, should we really be extraditing him to the USA to be tried there?  Labour's Member of Parliament for Chesterfield, and shadow education minister, Toby Perkins also thinks this is an over-the-top action.  Who runs this country, the government or big-media?  We have sufficient legal process in the UK to deal with this, we don't need US involvement.
