What Price Salvation For Gordon Brown?

Each passing day makes it even clearer that Prime Minister Gordon Brown placed money over the interests of justice. The release of the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, was connected to defending the rights of British business interests rather than the rights of justice. Neither Prime Minister Gordon Brown nor foreign minister David Miliband wanted the Libyan bomber to die in a British prison since they regarded that event as having catastrophic effects on the relationship between Libya and the UK.

Of course, one must ask, what are the relationships between the UK, a major modern technology center and the rather economically backward nation of Libya. The answer is clear–Libya has oil and the UK wants oil. Brown sold out his nation for pounds, British, that is. Will the prime minister take a personal interest in the lives of those serving life sentences who do not come from nations lacking oil?
