PITY THE BRIT WHO WANDERS INTO THE BAZAAR:

Gaddafi: ‘Lockerbie is history. Now it’s time to talk business' (Exclusive by LUCY ADAMS, August 28 2009, The Herald)

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's son today reveals the inside story of how - and why - the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing was released.

Speaking exclusively to The Herald at his home near Tripoli, Saif al Islam al Gaddafi disclosed the original prisoner transfer deal with the UK government was directly linked to talks on trade and oil. [...]

In what he said was his most important message, Mr al Gaddafi said: "Lockerbie is history. The next step is fruitful and productive business with Edinburgh and London. Libya is a promising, rich market and so let's talk about the future. There is no reason for people to be angry. Why be so angry? This is an innocent man who is dying."
