Scottish Labour's battles could spell the end for UK | Herald Scotland | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

The trouble is that Labour has a tendency to leave itself crippled after cathartic episodes such as these, that have marked the long slow decline of Labour in Scotland. It remains to be seen whether Johann Lamont can ensure that this time, it's different.

Italy's high court upholds convictions of 23 Americans for Rendition

Italy's high court upholds convictions of 23 Americans for Rendition | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it
ROME (AP) — Italy's highest criminal court on Wednesday upheld the convictions of 23 Americans in the kidnapping of an Egyptian terror suspect as part of the CIA's extraordinary rendition program.

The ruling marks the final appeal in the first trial anywhere in the world involving the CIA's practice of abducting terror suspects and transferring them to third countries where torture is permitted.

 

The 23 Americans all were convicted in absentia following a three-and-a-half-year trial, and have never been in Italian custody. They risk arrest if they travel to Europe and one of their court-appointed lawyers suggested that the final verdict would open the way for the Italian government to seek their extradition.

Spoof BBC web site is unashamedly biased, but can you tell it from the real thing? | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

“The trouble with the first couple of articles”, one author on the site told Newsnet Scotland, “is that we got the style so close to the real thing that many people didn’t spot it was a spoof. But with BBC Scotland covering stories about losing the pandas, annexing the Northern Isles and bombing our airports, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that.”
