In the meantime this man is still dying. As I have said before with terminal cancer it is difficult to give an exact time. We had one woman who lived 5 years after she was given no more than 6 months. However despite someone saying he could live ten years he is now expected only to last a few weeks.
George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."
I fully understand the need to believe in our legal systems are perfect, but in the real world we KNOW they are not. And this is especially in cases like this, where the political pressure was insane to convict anyone for the bombing. I want our legal systems to be as perfect as possible, but we can not achieve this if we do not speak out and correct cases of possible miscarriage of justice and in this case there is plenty of evidence that screams of huge issues with the ruling and trial.
I also understand the American's hatred of Libya and their blind trust in their government who claims it was Libya. That the evidence linking the two is at best circumstantial and at worst planted, then we must ask our governments.. now wait a minute. I for one refuse to have another case of miscarriage of justice like the Russians did in the Katyn massacre. I aint saying the US was behind Lockerbie btw, but in the Katyn massacre the Russians blamed the Nazi's and everyone ate it up... 40+ years later we learn, it was the Russians themselves that killed 22000 polish soldiers and not the Nazies.
Being of Polish descent nothing that the Russians have done or will in future do, surprises me, in my opinion they are the most distrustful of people, even to the point I would trust a Camel's fart before I would trust a Russian.
