I'd like to take this opportunity to put forward my opinion that we should also concentrate on getting the US Military out of our borders. The recent extradition treaty means that US forces can accuse any one in the UK of terrorism, and extradite and try them in the US, which means we are already no more than a satellite state of the most violent and aggressive state on Earth.
Its about time we put an end to the occupation of our country by these grunts, since we have our own grunts which we pay tax to keep well armed. I don't care what agreements were signed during WW2 when we had our backs to the wall, after Bush's banker of a grandfather had funded the Nazi party into power. I think they've (the US mil) been here long enough, 61 years in fact. It can't do our sovereignty any good, how can even an elected government make foreign policy decisions when the US could carry out an airstrike anywhere in the UK at a moment's notice?
Perhaps Californians could enjoy low flying strike aircraft and transport planes swooping low over their countryside. Moreover, Britain is no more than a huge human shield for Bush's USA - if the US weren't stationed here, there'd be one clear target for terrorists....
