Dirt not required just a sense of 'public duty' meaning 'support the Establishment at all times and especially when absolutely necessary'. See the appalling legal abuse Assange has suffered and is suffering. Due legal process has been and is being suspended for him.

After ruling that he was subject to a European Arrest Warrant despite not being charged Parliament changed the law ensuring you and I could never be estradited under it for mere questioning.

Even apart from Brexit the reputation of Britain abroad is full of holes and looking very seedy indeed and we only have ourselves to blame. Well if you are in England. Scotland has done as is doing rather better. We have and are protecting Prof Carla Ponsatti from being extradited by the Spanish for being Catalan. Scottish judges saw throught he last one as politically motivated. The Spanish are trying again but it won't work. Spain cannae have her. She is safe in St Andrews.
