Jack Straw has reignited the row over the release of the Lockerbie bomber by admitting for the first time that trade and oil were an essential part of the Government’s decision to include him in a prisoner transfer deal with Libya. Earlier this week, the outcry forced him to say: “There was no conspiracy, no cover-up, no double dealing, no deal on oil, no attempt to instruct Scottish ministers, no private assurances.”

More lies from the unelected PM


You could see when he was lying in his speech the other day, was when he was doing his pyramid hand signs, tried to find the video but can't, if anyone sees it embed please

While the story is new, this is hardly new and I discussed this in my last podcast A deal to release the Lockerbie bomber?

And if anyone believed that this release was not for the trade advantages, then they deserve this Government that continues to lie to the people.

i need to clarify a couple of things.

The prisoner transfer agreement(PTA) which was negotiated by the UK government in 2007 was rejected by the scottish government and megrahi stayed in prison in scotland.

the scottish justice secretary took the decision a few weeks ago to release megrahi on compassionate grounds (terminally ill). This is not a prisoner transfer its a full blown release.

So when brown says there was no double dealing involved in megrahis compassionate release by the scottish government we have no evidence to the contrary it just looks a bit convenient.

It does look like a labour UK government was willing to transfer megrahi for trade deals. Or as they described it "overwhelmingly in the national interest".
