A life sentence after a five minute hearing with no legal representation? That can’t be allowed to stand. What is our Foreign Secretary (What’s his name?) going to do about it?

If Mr Hedges is what he says, an innocent, if naive academic researching for a thesis, HMG must go in hard. Grounding all UAE airlines would be a good start. Freezing all Emirates bank accounts and assets might come next.

If on the other hand, Mr Hedges is what the UAE says, what will we do? Own up, or throw him under the bus?
