Conservative leader and UK PM David Cameron has again attacked the decision to release Abdelbasset Al Megrahi on compassionate grounds claiming that such a release was “wrong” and that it musn't happen again.
Speaking at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham Mr Cameron repeated attacks he originally made when visiting the US and added that the release had “undermined our [UK] standing in the world”.
The release of Al Megrahi, who is suffering from terminal cancer, just over a year ago was greeted with anger by many US relatives of the Lockerbie victims and senior US politicians. It also saw Scottish Labour, Tory and Lib Dem politicians attack the Scottish government although many respected international figures, including Nelson Mandela and the son of Mahatma Ghandi, backed the Scottish government and welcomed the showing of compassion to Mr Megrahi.
However Mr Cameron went further by appearing to issue a veiled threat against the independence of Scots Law when he said that “nothing like that must ever happen again”. - Newsnet Scotland
Mr Cameron, whose family line was that of a whore of William IV, should be told by the Scottish members of his Cabinet, Fox, Gove, Alexander, Moore, Duncan Smith, Lord Strathclyde and indeed by his own Scottish father, well if hadn't have died recently, that Scottish law is different to English law and has been since before the Union of the Parliaments, which indeed enshrined Scottish law and of course before Devolution. It is not for him a British Prime Minister to interfere in the law of Scotland and to that end the Lord Advocate should bring him before the Scottish High Court to rebuke him. At the very least there should be a letter of protest sent from the Scottish Parliament, signed by all parties, (and I'm laughing as I write that), protesting in his interference in Scottish Law. If you haven't read Newsnet Scotland please do so as there is an interesting article on the validity of Megrahi's guilt. The wine section however, is written by some pretentious prick, who lives in France.
