Cameron rejects new Lockerbie inquiry

Along with the news that  David Cameron has dismissed a new inquiry into Megrahi’s conviction while  Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond, believes that “the Lockerbie case remains a live investigation“, we can read that the president of Victims of Pan Am Flight 103 is of the opinion that Megrahi was “an unrepentant murderer” who he now hopes “will finally see justice.” Certainly, it would, therefore, be useful to get an insight into how Mr Duggan has come to his conclusions and for that a discussion which he had with George Galloway has been embedded into this post. On listening to it the reader of this post might come to his or her own conclusions. Nevertheless, in order to substantiate those conclusions it might be useful to watch the Al Jazeer video mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Of course, there are many people who might want to become more cognitively engaged with this issue and for them there might be another starting point beside the obvious ones of why did the Americans pay a key witness and why has Cameron dismissed a new inquiry. What about a little skimming and scanning of the “Victims of Pan Am Flight 103” website? When we do this the one obvious question we might ask is why does it not mention of the report from the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC), which was published in Scotland’s Sunday Herald, and why does an organisation that is supposedly concerned with the victims of Pan Am Flight 103 find it necessary to support NATO operations in Libya?

Of course, it really is quite simple, the video from Al Jazeera, the interview with George Galloway and, most importantly the SCCRC report, are really all that is needed to get closer to truth. Moreover, while that might allow us to come to some very different conclusions of why NATO bombed Libya, it is quite simply necessary if only for the fact that what is at stake here is the rule of law in Scotland and with that in mind we can safely conclude that the wishy-washy opinions, based on no evidence whatsoever, of David Cameron and Frank Duggan are completely irrelevant.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
