The Daily Mail is a right of centre, politically powerful, daily newspaper, and it is wholeheartedly supporting Gary McKinnon in his legal fight against extradition to the USA, with today's front page article, and subsidiary articles, including their own online petition.

An affront to British Justice
Dear Home Secretary,
I believe the extradition of Gary McKinnon to the U.S. is unjust and inhumane because as an Asperger's sufferer a long prison sentence would be catastrophic for his mental health.
I urge you to use your discretion to allow him to be tried by an English court.
