If we are still talking about Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, a poll in today's NorthBritishMan indicates 61% in favour of letting him out, and 39% against.

Edited to bother to put his full name in.

MacAskill said the decision was made because Scottish law required that "justice be served, but mercy be shown".


In a world where state sanctioned murder & torture are every day things.

This statement lifts my heart.
We who have been often shamed, can hold up our heads today.

A clever man/wumman wance said - or mibbe Ah dreamt it - forgive yer enemies, they fucken hate it.
If  al Megrahi wiz guilty - and as far as Ah'm concerned, there's a bit o' doubt aboot the vedict - then we were right tae let him go. Surely it's better to show the world - muslims especially - that we have compassion, if not for the murderer, for his innocent relatives. Make him a martyr and how many of his brothers, cousins etc will follow the path of violence?
The man is dying so we were right tae let him go.
If he wiz a patsy then we were right tae let him go.

We were right tae let him go.

First off, keepin a terminally ill person in prison smacks of revenge; it has nothing to do with public safety or justice.

Secondly, merca an broon baith wantit him oot the way so that they could get oan wi the trade deals.

The SNP hud nae choice BUT tae let the bastirt oot.

Politics are a filthy slimy area and international politics are as low as human beings can sink. Ah spit oan aw involved in this disgustin charade.

Confused

Not appreciating at all here that "Quick Life Insurance Get 70% Off" ad at the bottom of this page this evening....












Laughing Wink


We did the right thing. There is a lot that it would seem was not dealt with at the trial and I for one don't think the verdict was right or the conviction safe - and I hope to heck that Megrahi throws a wee something into the mix before he kicks the bucket.

(Was going to say 'a wee explosive something' but, er... naw)

The families deserve the whole truth.

Not to mention the rest of the world... that has to use airplanes and who can't get it out of their heads that they fly now upon the whims of evil men in power & nutters with bombs.


Lockerbie. The word still makes me shudder. I wasn't close to it, I don't know anyone directly affected, but I was young, and devoured all the damnable & vicarious reporting in the newspapers at the time. Couldn't help myself; couldn't tear myself away from it. I've always had a vivid imagination, and I should have known better than to read the stuff, but didn't. Much of what I read was beyond horrifying and became hardwired into my head.

I still have nightmares & bad dreams, about that terrible night. A thousand curses upon the execrable tabloids.

Ah jist poasted oan another threid an then saw this wan.

Thair a good bit of evidence, or lack thereof, tae indicate that the man might well be innocent. However, if he actually did dae it.........thairs nae wey in the wurld would ah let the bastirt oot oan compassionate grounds.

Plus ah wid use drugs and torture (folk songs annat) tae get him tae spill the beans oan eys ackcomplissies. I'd shoot water pistols at him annaw.

Nae need - he's more than up for wantin the beans spilt, by the looks of things...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/8228219.stm

"...In his first interview since being released, Megrahi told The Herald: "I support the issue of a public inquiry if it can be agreed. In my view, it is unfair to the victim's families that this has not been heard. It would help them to know the truth. The truth never dies. If the UK guaranteed it, I would be very supportive." But Megrahi said he believed the UK government would avoid a public inquiry as it would cost a lot of money and also "show how much the Americans have been involved"."

"...Ms Adams said: "I think perhaps for those who are convinced of his guilt it seems interesting that he would back that [an inquiry] and he would hand over the papers he has and the documents he has.

"That seems quite an interesting position from his point of view, because that would indicate he has nothing to hide." "

It's extraordinary how often the truth behind events come to light. It might take decades but the truth will often out. Ah'm still waitin' fur JFK's killers tae be outed.  Cool
