    It should be safer, they won't be using an American rig and crew this time.

    This particular Government did not sanction the release of that terrorist.
    That terrorist was released by the agreement of the NU-Labor Government of Gordon Brown.
    The present Government headed by a David Cameron who actually objected in the British House of Parliament to the then proposed freeing of that Terrorist.
    So Gordon Brown and his cohorts were the ones to blame.
    BP so far as I can tell did not directly seek this Terrorists release on Compassionate or any other reason.
    What they did do was ask for the decision as to whether all 27 Libyan Prisoners held in British Prisons might be sent back to Libya to serve out their sentences in their home country, should Libya have had any British nationals in Libyan Prisons, these might be returned to UK and serve out their sentences in British Prisons.
    Then you would tend to be wrong too. The Scottish Government released him, not the British. Gordon Brown and Co. were as displeased as the Tories, and just as impotent.

    How do you know the rig and the crew won't be American?

    Is not invoking capitalism as the cause of this a straw man argument?
    Wat? Too confusing for me at 3 in the morning sorry.

    I disagree with your signature.
    Reality disagrees with you.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Worthwhile trade.
    At least UK will get something from this even if it was the Scots who let him out.
