Repeal the one-sided extradition treaty with the USA

The extradition treaty (2004) with the USA is one-sided and grossly unfair.

It allows the US to extradite UK citizens for offences against US law even though the offence was committed in the UK, by a person living and working in the here ( e.g. the Natwest Three,Gary McKinnon), while there is no reciprocal right to extradite US citizens.
There is also a problem with the level of prima facie evidence (proof) being less to extradite UK citizens to the US than vice-versa.

The current legislation is indefensible and should be repealed immediately.

Why does this idea matter?

The present legislation demonstrates utter disregard by government of its citizens' welfare while bowing to the demands of the USA.
