image for Gary McKinnon should not be extradited says the whole world
Gary McKinnon - being hammered by the law

Gary McKinnon is to be extradited to the US and the World has decided that it is not going to put up with this nonsense. "Basically" said a spokesperson for the whole wide world "This is utterly ridiculous. Gary McKinnon may have successfully hacked into the US defence and space systems, but for goodness sake he is obviously not a terrorist. He is a man with aspergers who wanted to make a point. Thank goodness it was him who did the hacking, giving the authorities the chance to see where weaknesses lay so they could do something about it. OK, not saying he's done a good thing, but why the hell is the UK extraditing someone to a regime that supports the death penalty, set up Guantanamo Bay and still has Bagram in the background? And why is the US pursuing this man rather than chasing the really dangerous types - who actually want to kill us all?"

The Whole World then said that if the US did not listen it was going to stamp its collective foot all at the same time and knock the earth out of orbit causing a galactic catastrophe. The US response was predictable - "Well that saves us a a job doesn't it."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
