Lockerbie: Govenment Will Not Publish All Correspondence

by | 31st, August 2009

7554952LOCKERBIE: The UK Government late this evening said it is to publish “all relevant” correspondence with the Scottish Executive over releasing the Lockerbie bomber.

Downing Street confirmed exchanges between Ministers and their counterparts north of the border would be made public on Tuesday, says the Press Association.

The two administrations are getting close to open insult warfare over the handling of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi’s case.

Note the term “Scottish Executive“. In Scotland the controlling Nationalists insist the term is Scottish Government. Whitehall’s mandarins refuse to acknowledge the term and still use the “executive” description as firm reminder to the kilted ones Westminster remains in charge, despite the transparent myth of devolution.

It’s use at all in a UK Government press statement is designed to turn up the emotional heat in Edinburgh.

Don’t be surprised if you find the “all relevant” documents line is later shown to have a big hole in the terminological inexactitudes department.

All sides are as guilty as sin in this and Anorak told you so three years ago – AGW
