Justice Secretary = Gutless windbag.

Faugh! The Scottish Justice Secretary is flipping and flopping over the Lockerbie bomber like a filleted halibut because Bill Clinton's wife is nipping his bonce on behalf of the Land of the Free and Home of the Crazed. No harm to HC, doing her job and failing to accept that oddly British concept of compassionate release rather than die in the slammer as a legitimate response to mass murder. But our mannie is being so dithery from day to day it make you despair. Let your yea be yea and your nay be nay...oh, hang on, he works for Alex Salmond. Question answered.

Made it to and through the therapy session. Big relief feelings on the bus back. If it doesn't kill you... it might heal you.


  1. Fr. Dougal,
    I did some looking to find news stories on this item and it seems that it is of little to no interest here in the US press. I can see why it is of great interest in Scotland. HC is trying to making a strong impression on the world stage, but it may backfire. Some of us would like the Secretary of State to be diplomatic, but that is not happening so far. We shall see how this progresses, but I must confess that I am not impressed so far.


  2. Well, David, I can understand that, as from the US point of view the "Scottish Government" (which was a name change instituted by the present Nationalist administration from Scottish Executive) wields little more power than a State legislature in the US. If Mr McCaskill were to release the bloke early, it might well impact on the US media more powerfully.
