Colour me cross

The news today was full of David Cameron in Washington wittering on about the release of al-Megrahi and how he wouldn't have done it if he'd been (a) in power (b) Scottish (c) asked for his f***ing opinion. Less coverage was given to this fine chap's early release.

Unlike Megrahi, Hayb wasn't ill, not was there any doubt of his guilt (indeed, he later admitted he'd perjured himself and that in fact Hurndall's killing was murder and not manslaughter). So why release him? Perhaps to punish the UK for raising protests over the Maya Marmara peace activists who damaged valuable Israeli bullets with the backs of their heads? Or for our disinclination to look the other way when an Israeli death squad tried to pass itself off as British?
