A Plea For Compassion: Scotland

24-08-2009 15:34

WHY SCOTLAND’S Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill, was right to release Locherbie
bomber and allow him to return to Libya, and why Mr Mueller, President Obama, Hillary
Clinton, the Lib Dems in Scotland and Gordan Brown in England are perfectly wrong.
Frankly, I am not concerned as to how Libya or Gadaffi receive the reprieved victim of
Scottish commiseration. I believe such matters to be anterior the concern to hand and , to
my mind should not concern anyone else unduly either. If there have been financial or
commercial inducements involved, then such features would not doubt be unsavory, but in
the public domain, I hardly think they can be denied. And in any event future cases -- not
unlike the shenanigans and delays of Jack Straw -- may be avoided.
