Spaw and Sinsull, I normally agree with just about everything you post here; but get your facts straight folks; BP did indeed lobby over the prisoner transfer agreement. Megrahi's release was not part of that agreement, as it fell within the jurisdiction of a different Parliament, i.e. The Scottish Parliament, who everyone agrees were NOT lobbied by BP. Besides; as Americans, what the fuck does it have to do with you? Would you let us Brits decide what happens to the 911 perpetrators, if you ever get round to catching them? More Brits died on 911 than Americans died at Lockerbie, remember, and our soldiers are still dying fighting your pointless oil war for you. I'm getting really tired of my country being regarded as some kind of annexe of the USA, and I'm starting to understand why the Arab world is so pissed off with American policy.
