Can you put the rope round my waist?

I saw a short report today of a case in which a foreign national had failed in his attempt to delay extradition. The High Court decided that the alleged need to receive treatment for a skin condition was not sufficient reason to delay the extradition process.

Nothing deep or political here - it just reminded me of the lovely joke I heard Duggie Brown tell years ago on The Comedians (whoops - age check alert) about the prisoner who was about to be hanged.  The last request to the executioner was “Can you put the rope round my waist – ‘cause I’ve got a boil on my neck”!
