Lockerbie bomber: Jack Straw 'allowed Megrahi free because of oil negotiations'

Mr Straw's apparent change of stance came at a crucial time in negotiations about a multi-million pound oil exploration contract for BP in Libya that appeared to have stalled.

The Justice Secretary said he originally wanted Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi omitted from the agreement, but relented and agreed the bomber should be eligible. [/i]

So who takes the fall for this? Jack or Jack and the rest of Government?

Just Jack Straw. There is no chance of a general election before June.

Answer: Nobody.

Half the UK population are now so cynically aware that they're inert. The other half are so nonchalant that they're inert.

We're basically a zombie nation.

Two things

The victims families can attempt to prove a deal has been made, against the best interests of the victims

and

Straw man resigns. Either way, it's yet more embarrasment for our country.

Treason has now been commmited by all members of the cabinet, no only a gen election. It's the death of the Labour Party

Exactly. All of them should be in the Tower awaiting execution.

Entering Kunstler mode, it's also worth pointing out that this case shows how utterly craven our need for oil is.

Indeed, even to the point of inciting the wrath of the US. :ph34r:

i heard what in my mind on the news sounded like an admission that it was a deal, i was quite surprised to hear that, but not surprised to find it now on the hpc forum where we're not yet the zombie nation singlemalt rightly alludes to.

and to think, subley, vanerius and the rest of the bulls are basing their hopes, dreams and joys on this bunch of characters is, frankly, pitiful.

i dont say the Opp are up to much, but they have to be better than this lot of sub-prime ministers.

Mandleslime has a quiet word in Gordon's ear, Straw takes the fall, Mandy puts in a placeman who will ensure he can resign his Lordships and re-enter the commons as PM. Mandy calls his friend, baby Ghaddafi and asks him to convey his thanks to daddy. Rothschild is happy.

Job done.

These theories would have a lot more credibility if they even tried to explain why the SNP went along with it.

By fronting the decision to release they are spinning it as Scots 'compassion' and showing their ability to act independently on a major international issue. Unfortunately, as many have pointed out, the SNP don't have much experience of operating at this level of politics. They thought they were taking the glory (that's doubtless how it was spun to them), but found out the hard way that they were in fact taking the rap. The SNP were had by NuLab, pure and simple.

C4 ran the story tonight of a reporter visiting this man in hospital ' propped up on pillows, tubes everywhere' too ill to answer questions, On leaving they spotted an orderley about to enter the room with a huge meal!

If this is a cover up and illusion, it is not just an insult to the victims it is an insult to every terminally ill person in the country and those who have already died premature deaths.

I think it is more local than that it seems the independence referendum has been pushed back on the agenda and i suspect support for the referendum from Labour was the price for the realese on compassionate grounds

More worring it looks like Gordon Brown will support it
