Dear Jack Straw,
This week, a deeply embarrassed Lady Scotland was obliged to stonewall her Israeli hosts and admit that nothing had yet been done to close the loophole in British law allowing arrest warrants to be issued at the instigation of private individuals.
The question, Mr Straw, is why nothing has yet been done.
You yourself, when Foreign Secretary in 2005, actually apologised to your Israeli counterpart when General Doron Almog stayed on his plane at Heathrow rather than get off and risk prosecution.
