US claims right to kidnap British citizens

Just when you thought it was safe to pop out to the shops...

From today's Sunday Times:

America has told Britain that it can “kidnap” British citizens if they are wanted for crimes in the United States.

A senior lawyer for the American government has told the Court of Appeal in London that kidnapping foreign citizens is permissible under American law because the US Supreme Court has sanctioned it.

Ok then, if they can do it then we should be able to aswell.
I vote we kidnap Ron Paul and have him stand for election over here.
