The Tipton Three

There was the Birmingham Six, the Guildford Four and now we have the Tipton Three. There will, no doubt, be a book and a major feature film in time to come. I just hope, after reading Revealed: the full story of the Guantanamo Britons in today’s Observer that — in the process — these three young men will be compensated in some small measure for the inhumane treatment they received at the hands of their US captors. The prospect of financial compensation from the US Government or their British co-conspirators would appear to be too politically unpalatable for words.
