Scotland was just the fall guy

Well, well, well. It seems I may have been a tad rash in my scathing tirade against Scotland. It seems that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was using his homeland as cover for his own pernicious and craven acts (hat tip to Vox Popoli).

The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests.

Gordon Brown, you are a snake! For a Scot to let his homeland take the heat for an act of sniveling cowardice performed on behalf of an oil industry that you and your fellow Leftists scapegoat at every turn is beyond belief.

Great Britain should be ashamed to be represented by such a vile and cowardly man as Gordon Brown.
