Hoping as well that someone will step in and help the Dunn's with their legal costs. If they are using lawyers in the US, I imagine the fees are going to be fairly astronomic.

There's probably sufficient anger for crowdfunding to work.
No-brainer, especially as this looks like a Trumpian stitch-up.

Mister "Britannia Unchained", the hard man at the foreign office, is remaining uncharacteristically tight lipped about this.

He'll be sweating like an EDLer at a spelling bee.

Please no-one take this the wrong way or as me as making light of a teenager's tragic death as the main thing is, of course, that his family see justice but I think this is also, at a very opportune time, the prick in the Brexiter delusion that Trump is a true friend, who wants what's best for the UK too, and our "Special Relationship" lives on and will go strength to strength away from the EU yadda yadda.

It's shown even the most ardent Brexiteer that the American Government is out for itself and itself alone.

It's awful that it's taken a tragedy like this for them to see it.

If Mr Trump is to be taken at his word, alliances - whether it be with the Kurds or even within Nato - are for him simply transactional business arrangements to be judged according to a short-term cost-benefit analysis: what is the US giving and what is it getting in return?
Doesn't that summarise Trumpism so well?

I'm amazed they're even considering Trump would give something in return rather than just default on the arrangement and walk away, smugly satisfied at his "art of the deal".
