Kenny MacAskill is either naive or stupid

It has been reported in this morning's papers that Kenny MacAskill, the man who took the decision to free the Lockerbie bomber from jail on compassionate grounds has accused him of breaking an undertaking not to celebrate his release.

The Scottish Justice Minister has shown himself either to be incredibly naive, stupid or both to release a convicted mass-murderer (that has shown no remorse), to a country run by a dictator, who was clearly going to exploit the opportunity of his release.

Kenny MacAskill must be praying that Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi will die very soon, but I wouldn't bet on it on it. Some of you may recall Ernest Saunders who was jailed for his part in the Guinness Affair. Saunders successfully won his release after convincing the judge that he was suffering from pre-senile dementia associated with Alzheimer's disease, which is incurable. He made a full recovery.
