The Law Lords ruling yesterday: "The House of Lords ruled unanimously that four men who say they suffered serious physical and mental abuse in Saudi jails cannot sue those responsible because foreign officials are protected by the State Immunity Act". Is this a case of double standards by our Government again. Allegedly Tommy Atkins kicks a Basra chav in the nuts for rioting or a spot of ali babba. Allegedly Tommy Atkins rapes the entire female population of Kenya, Allegedly Tommy Atkins kicks, butt strokes, urinates on, stamps then cable ties and chucks a suspected terrorist in the back of a snatch vehicle, then the judical system swings into action, assault, torture, rape, crimes against humanity and human rights violations. So what do we do, fly the accusers into the UK, pay them, give them leagal aid, feed them, take their side and condem our troops before the full facts are known. The question is then are we not state officals and therefore covered under the said act.
