Left Outside

It’s Don Pacifico time

A death sentence handed down in Bali to a British grandmother found guilty of drug trafficking has been condemned by the UK government.

Foreign Office minister Hugo Swire said the government objected and that appeal options were open to Lindsay Sandiford.

Sandiford, 56, was arrested at Bali’s airport in May 2012 after 4.8kg (10.6lb) of cocaine was found in her suitcase lining during a routine check.

She faces death by firing squad.

Any chance?

Left Outside is always worth a read for passionate, and frequently irreverent, analysis and comment.

Oi! Enough of the cheek!

Left Outside is, I think, entirely wrong

This might be the least well informed piece I’ve read on LC, which is quite an accolade.
