Gordon Brown’s silence on Megrahi absurd and damaging says Clegg
Speaking ahead of today’s statement in Holyrood on the release of Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrahi, Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg said: "It is absurd and damaging that the British Prime Minister simply remains silent in the hope that someone else will take the flak.”
“Although the decision to release Megrahi was a Scottish one for which Gordon Brown was not personally responsible, the fallout puts the UK at the centre of an international storm.
“In these circumstances, it is absurd and damaging that the British Prime Minister simply remains silent in the hope that someone else will take the flak.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
