The Release Of Megrahi

Yesterday, I wrote a long and exceptionally pungent piece concerning the release of Megrahi. I didn't publish it. I might yet.
The news that he is abandoning his appeal should hopefully give those who proclaim their belief in his innocence some pause for thought, and give them leave to consider another possibility - that he's a mass-murderer. This is a very comfortable position for me to take, because it's what I've believed all along.
Innocent men don't chuck their appeals - unless, of course, they know they're guilty to begin with.

Unless the system is so stacked against justice in the first place. Not in his situation but in general, that might be considered as a factor.

It's not in this case, nor ever has been in Scotland.
