SENT TO COVENTRY

THIS BITTER SWEET ARTICLE BY AN ARTICLE CALLED POOLE HAS CAUSED ME TO FIRE AN E-MAIL AT HIS EDITOR.










SNP got Lockerbie bomber release correct

Aug 25 2009 by Alan Poole
WORDS I never thought I’d say – the Scottish National Party were right.

A phrase I never dreamed would drift across my consciousness, let alone pass my lips – leave Alex Salmond alone!

The SNP, of course, are at best parochial parasites, at worst insidious racists, while their leader is a politician who miraculously contrives to make Tony Benn seem modest, Paddy Ashdown sincere and David Cameron patrician.

But it was little short of revolting to watch him subjected to a relentless round of radio and TV inquisitions because Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi has been allowed to return to Libya for the last few months of his life.

And the possibility that Salmond and his government could now be forced out of power by an unholy unelected alliance of the UK media and the US intelligence services is such an affront to the core principles of justice and democracy that it tempts the most ardent Unionist to head north for a gathering of the clans.

Despite what you might gather from the lobby correspondents at Westminster and Holyrood, nobody has a clue as to the extent of the political and commercial pressure piled on to Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill as he pondered his decision.

But the glaring flaw in all of those supposedly well-informed conspiracy theories is that they pre-suppose a secret pact between Salmond and Gordon Brown – the two British politicians least likely to do each other a favour if their lives depended on it.
