He's no Kevin Pieterson

British cagey on Hicks passport;

The bid by the Guantanamo Bay inmate David Hicks for a British passport - which would secure his release from the US military prison - appears doomed after the British Home Office said "public policy considerations" could prevent it granting him citizenship.

A bit of a bummer. I'd like to see Hicks get the f*ck out of Gitmo. If it did occur via this avenue, the double whammy would be the Howard Government's embarrassment.

Wishful thinking.
