Talkbackers seem to be having trouble achieving traction on this story. Might it have something to do with the fact that this is the smoking gun we've all been waiting for? Where is all the snappy repartee, the tortuous puns, the arrogant non-denials and the "ambiguity"? This time someone has screwed up big time and we are left, not alone with a face on a passport, but with a corresponding real live human. Before this individual returns to home soil he/she will be in a position to write the Michelin Guide to the European prison system. An awful lot of spooks of various nationalities will want to have a chat. You folks like to talk about chutzpah but to antagonise yet another EU country implies stupidity of heroic proportions. Is this the sixth EU member state to be involved? He/She might get to travel even further afield, Appendices for Australia and the US are also on the cards. The only way "ambiguity" can be maintained is if your boorish PM leaves the agent swinging in the wind.
