In Aug 2009, Pual F asked us the question "Has the release of Megrahi damaged the international reputation of Scotland?"

A month later, skog suggested "Looks like this isn't going away as quietly as some might have hoped."

Al Jazeera have just broadcast their documentary 'Lockerbie: Case Closed'. This focuses principally on the evidence that went to the Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission resulting in an appeal that never progressed to court. The programme is repeated Tues 28th, Wed 29th, Thur 1st.

Link to news story about programme.

Because the Commission cannot release their material the circumstances of the withdrawn appeal, the programme bypasses them and goes directly to the investigators who obtained the evidence that the Commission examined.

Some of you may not want to watch it because it might conflict with your perception of reality. That's fine. Have another fluoxetine-hydrochloride and a nice cup of tea and a repeat of the The Truman Show is sure to be coming up on a satellite channel somewhere soon.

While the rest of you are waiting for the Al Jazeera repeat to come along, try this next link. If it ever made the news in the UK then it must have been on a bulletin at three in the morning.

And keep an eye on the job pages in the Scotsman. It can't be long before there are plenty of high level public sector vacancies.

The tenacles stretch out in all directions. Is our new Chief Constable at Northern the same George Graham who went to Malta and traced the manufacture of the baby suit that eventually led to the discredited witness Tony Gauci (who was a friend of a friend of one of his colleagues as well as ending up being great friends ($2M) of the FBI).

You couldn't make it up.

Some may pick up on the IPO link having the appearance of self-appointed commentators with a rather confusing array of references and find this a little suspicious. The answer seems to be simply that they are legal nerds rather than website designers.

I have checked the UN website and their records show that the correct accreditation was sent from the Secretary-General to the Security Council.
