Mother of student under extradition threat: 'PM is wet'

Julia O'Dwyer, the mother of Richard who is facing being extradited to the US has slammed the government's handling of the case.

"I don't blame America. They do it because they can because our law leaves the gates wide open. This is fully the responsibility of our Government - the last government for doing this law and this Government for not acting to do the promised amendments to it."

Asked what the Prime Minister should do during his three-day visit to the US, Mrs O'Dwyer added:

The man's wet isn't he? He's not going to be saying anything much to President Obama. And he won't get much of an answer either. It'll be, 'The president doesn't interfere.'
