Gordon Is Back In Town- Lest We Forget
Posted by michaelgreenwell on May 14, 2013
I see a certain Mr Brown has reared his head again to add his particular nuances to the Independence debate. This reignites his old pal’s act with Mr Darling.
I wonder what other old friends he would bring along if he could.
If you don’t remember how this story went, then it was with allegations of duplicity.
Gordon Brown and David Miliband were last night drawn directly into the furore over the release of the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing when it emerged that Britain told Tripoli that the prime minister and foreign secretary did not want to see him die in prison.
In a major setback for Downing Street, which has insisted the release was entirely a matter for Edinburgh, it emerged that a Foreign Office minister intervened last February to make clear to Libya that Brown and Miliband hoped Abdelbaset al-Megrahi would not “pass away” in prison.
