UK Government demands that Libya doesn’t laugh at our rank stupidity

“At least restrict your pointing and sniggering to the Scots,” says the Foreign Office.


Abedelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi was freed on August 20 last year by the Scottish Executive on the grounds he had only three months to live. However, Libyan officials said yesterday that he was now expected to live another two years.

Col Muammar Gaddafi has decreed that Megrahi must receive the same level of medical care afforded to state leaders.

The Foreign Office warned that any celebration of his freedom would be ”tasteless, offensive and deeply insensitive”.

It’s utterly fucking slapstick, isn’t it?

A spokeswoman said: ”The Government is clear that Megrahi’s release was a mistake. Both the current Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary made this clear at the time.

”Particularly on this anniversary we understand the continuing anguish that Megrahi’s release has caused his victims, both in the UK and the US.

”Any celebration of Megrahi’s release will be tasteless, offensive and deeply insensitive to the victims’ families.

”We have made our concerns clear to the Libyan government.”

And the Libyan government put the phone down politely, then collapsed onto the floor on howling paroxysms of laughter.

Once again, politicians make us an international laughing stock.

  1. I want to see Al Magrahi celebrating his birthday on TV, preferably with a large sign behind him that says “Thank you Scotland”

    I just think it’s amazing how his health has improved now he’s back in the Sandpit.

    Then I want every major news channel to interview Kenny “fuckwit” McKaskill, live – in Lockerbie!

  2. Oh dear the British politicians think the British public will be offended by the fact that al-Megrahi is still living. I think we have a right to be offended if we keep on offending other countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. The fact that he’s doing a lot better under Lybian treatment than with Scot NHS treatment doesn’t make the NHS look good either. Anyway, the reason he’s still living has probably a lot to do with the fact that he’s with friends and family in a comfortable place than in a prison.
