MacAskill and Scotlands shame.

EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM - AUGUST 20: Justice...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeThe pictures across the media of Megrahi sitting at a Libyan government rally in support of Gaddafi brings home the shame Scotland has to bear every time this convicted murderer mocks the decision of MacAskill to release him on compassionate grounds.
Every day over the three months he was forecast to have left to live, thanks to his supposed cancer is a day too long, and now that it is almost two years since his release, and given the situation in Libya I wonder how much guilt MacAskill is feeling.
The answer is NONE I suppose as he has never been man enough to admit his error nor is he ever expected to do so.
We in Scotland who never approved of Megrahi's release can only apologize to all the people who suffered and are still suffering through the evil deed he was found guilty of.
It will always be Scotland's shame although it was not the wishes of the majority of the nation's people, but we elected the idiot MacAskill who would rather see murderers walk free rather than pay the price for their crimes.
It saddens me to see him appear on TV without any remorse, and with his head held high by the brass neck on his shoulders.
His arrogance is a stern reminder to all proud Scots not to give fools like him the chance to make stupid decisions like this again.
