Quite, Chris. Still the Telegraph is belly aching about "rough Justice i the land of the Free."!

If the enron3 had been black immigrants would the Daily Mail and the Tories have mounted a campaign in their defence? And would the Telegraph and right wing moronic press been full of indignation?

Err no

For very rich crooks, the PR company exploited this anomaly to elicir sympathy for the majority of the country. The issues are separate. Many innocent people were husr by the Enron con. This was a deliberate theft and I rejoice that they have been punished.
Agree we are bad at prosecuting white collar crime.

Regardless of whether some bankers get their just desserts, the extradition treaty is one sided, unfair and wrong. Once the US have used it to get Abu Hamza it needs to be either ratified by the US congress or better still repealed here.

Equally, why is the UK so bad at successfully prosecuting white collar crime, and then imposing appropriate sentences? Frankly this case shows the total incompetence of the SFO & CPS more than anything else.
