|Two- No Three- Things I Want To Say About Lockerbie
||[Sep. 2nd, 2009|09:28 am]
I broke my fast and looked at The Times on line yesterday. I didn't read much- honestly- because- equally honestly- it was making me feel ill. What especially made me feel ill was an article by someone I'd never heard of saying the Megrahi case had finally killed off the so-called "special relationship" between Britain and the USA- and berating the British government for letting this happen. I haven't bored you with my views on that issue yet- and I'm not going to do it now except to say two things, very briefly. The first is that Lockerbie has been soused in ugly, disgusting politics since the beginning- and I think it very likely that Megrahi is innocent. The second is that I think it's rather splendid that tiny, little Scotland was prepared to stand up and defy the might of the USA- for whatever reason. Oh, and there's a third- and it's this: that for a nation that's always banging on about how Christian it is, the USA doesn't half have a legalistic, Old Testament attitude to justice! |

Re: the bp debacle in russia
But if Gaddafi wasn't behind Lockerbie the outlawing of Libya is a charade- one we've been keeping up- against our own interests- simply to save face.
I understand BP just made a major find in the Gulf of Mexico. I wonder how that fits into the puzzle.
