UKIP condemns extradition of Sheffield student

Nigel Farage, the leader of UKIP, says: "This is appalling news and once again shows that our Government seems more than happy to hand over its citizens to the US without a care in the world."We saw this with my friend Chris Tappin, and now with Richard O'Dwyer.

"This treaty is totally one-sided and needs serious reform."Chris and Richard should be allowed to prove their innocence under British law in a British court, not taken on a plane to the other side of the world and thrown into an American jail.

"The Prime Minister should stop cosying up to president Obama and put British people first for once."
