Slick Rick pardoned

Last year, you might recall that there was a risk of Slick Rick being forced to return to the UK, what with his attempted murder conviction, and five years in jail and so on. Good news for him today, though: New York governor David Paterson. Paterson has issued the pardon in recognition of his good works for charity and so on, and called for the immigration department to drop plans to deport him.
