    Logosity,

    thank you for your interesting post, which clearly articulates various concepts that have been roiling in my thoughts for years. Thank you also for the link to the Society for Philosophy in Practice, which I shall explore when pressure of time permits.

    Craig,

    thank you for your blog, which is excellent to visit, even when you’re not here yourself. I hope you’re doing well.

    Jim Hutchinson and Rita,

    you’ve both posted links to “sxolsout.org.uk”. Could you tell me a bit about yourselves? Is the site you’ve linked to yours?

    Regards,

    Rita,

    I doubt that even Jack Straw could manipulate someone into being in their last days dying of cancer. I think Megrahi’s release was inevitable due to his condition and his release was the correct thing to do under scottish law.

    Along with logosity, I’m a bit tired of people telling you to ‘snap out of it’, ‘we need you’, etc !

    He refers to “commonsense advisers” in a general sense but we’ve seen a few here …

    I too regard you as a valued net-friend, but I do not own you .

    So no exhortations, just———–

    Bonne Chance !

    The decision to release al Megrahi most certainly was not made in London, a fact which invalidates the rest of your post which otherwise has considerable merit.

    Of more immediate interest however is the asinine behaviour of the unionist opposition in the Scottish Parliament yesterday which has disgraced Scotland.

    A little weasel working in a bonded printing warehouse has told me again yesterday, after initially telling me month ago, that the Government is printing food rationing cards and other pamphlets of central public control.

    Has anybody else heard similar stories?

  • David McEwan Hill

    This is from today’s Scotland Live on BBC Radio Scotland. It is a comment with to which all decent people can relate. It is from the former British Ambassador to Libya, Sir Oliver Miles.

    Speaking of the debate yesterday and the position taken by Scotland’s combined opposition he said “If I can make a personal comment on this, I find this rather extraordinary and rather disgusting because it seems to me that it was never intended, by the court for example that Megrahi should die in jail”. He also said “To say that ‘he should have died in the prison’, seems to me the polite equivalent of the bar room language of ‘hanging is too good for him, throw away the key’. He continues “Now, I am frankly shocked, shocked, that all of our UK parties seem to by vying with each other to be more vindictive of the other” and he finished by saying “It’s enough to make me vote Scottish Nationalist, and I’m as English as they come.”

    His remarks merely underline that this in not and never has been a political issue, is not a nationalist versus unionist issue, is not an England versus Scotland issue. It is a civilized versus barbarism issue and the united Scottish opposition disgraced Scotland yesterday.

    When I left the Labour party , fifty years ago as a teenager, and joined the SNP I always entertained the fullest expectation that the Labour party in Scotland would eventually surely follow me. I contested elections against Labour in Lanarkshire on the best of terms with my Labour opponents many of whom I counted as friends. The Labour Party asked me to rejoin and stand for them – with a guarantee of success. I was a counting agent in St John’s Grammar School in Hamilton when Winnie Ewing won and despite the trauma that Labour experienced that night the was little nastiness and a shared understanding that both Labour and the SNP has decent causes which afforded a degree of mutual respect.

    But time has rolled on and my optimism about Labour has diminished with every passing year. Yesterday marked a depth of disgusting and cynical political expediency that I never believed that Labour could stoop to.

    Labour is finished in Scotland. The SNP is well along the road, not of beating it but of replacing it.

    Some of us here in New Zealand read your blog with gratitude.

    To receive the news that the media won’t print is essential to our well-being and

    helps motivate us to speak out.

    Thanks again

    I am a frenchman living in Paris. I just falled by random in your blog and I apreciate your messages about Near East very very well. In France, unfortunately, we are surrounded by the cowardise of the media concerning this conflict sionisto-palestinian. Everything you write, I agree with you. Please let translate your messages and send them to the french MP Chamber, “Chambre des Depute, Assemblee Nationale” Paris : it would be a very good exemple for them and the best way of boosting them out the general apathy and cwardise !

    What I Have Seen of The Video Today…

    Which Involved Several Miles Walking…

    Is Just So Good…

    Because It Is About Where We Live in Our Village….

    It Starts At The Village Fair

    And I See This Photograph Of All These Bees on The Table The Lady’s Were Running Outside Our Local Library in The Village Square….

    And I see All The Jars of Honey and The Incredibly Beautiful Beeswax Candles…

    And I ask her – Is This a Photograph Of Your Bees?

    And She Said – Yes I Took That Photograph This Morning – It is Such a Beautiful Sunny Day

    And I Looked Into Her Eyes and She Could Have Been Any Age From about 65 to 115 and I Knew She Was Telling The Truth…

    She explained – that is a picture of our bees – which I took this morning – and all this is their honey…

    But although they really are Beeswax Candles – we didn’t make them ourselves…

    My Wife Fell In Love and So Did I

    And My Wife Bought a Candle

    And I Videod The Exchange

    Hey – I Love Where I Live

    Such Lovely People

    I am missing your insight greatly. Hope all is well in the Craig household.

    There are so many current issues that need clarity and an understanding that only you seem to provide.

  • mary

    Sorry didn’t mean to sound so brusque @ nevergiveup. Perhaps we can just post up what we consider important for the time being and use this site for comment and discussion (if we are allowed).

  • ingo

    Sorry Clark, that would be too much me thinks, that person is a tortured soul at best and it would really be not much news.

    It is a logical step to make when food prices are rising as they are.

    I shall try and ask that person, don’t expect much, I might evoke a smile for suggesting it and a bottle of something might wriggle it, but don’t be surprised if it does not.

    Libya – everybody’s favourite whipping boy – should apparently now pay victims of the IRA compensation because they allegedly supplied explosives. Should the Irish government not also pay compensation, given they harboured the IRA terrorists for decades, providing them with aid and comfort in no small measure?

    Should Sinn Fein not be paying compensation, given they basically ARE the IRA?

    But most importantly, why isn’t America providing the bulk of the compensation, since not only did they give the IRA aid and comfort for decades, but also the bulk of the hard cash that funded the IRA?

    After all, successive British governments had been asking the Americans to please, pretty-please put a stop to the supply of cash and weapons. All the Americans did in return was shrug and turn a blind eye, when it wasn’t giving the red carpet treatment to terrorists like Adams.

    On the subject of swine flu, Jane Burgermeister’s http://www.theflucase.com carries all the latest stories re the disease and the vaccine. Ms Burgermeister recently filed criminal charges against WHO, Baxter and others and has pretty apocalyptic views about the true nature of the vaccine.

    Her own article “Revolution is the Answer” is well worth a read. She may be barking up the wrong tree – or just plain barking – but the article is IMO a fine piece of political polemic for these strange times.

  • Richard Robinson

    “Libya – everybody’s favourite whipping boy – should apparently now pay victims of the IRA compensation because they allegedly supplied explosives”.

    If governments are to be held responsible for the damage done by their weapons exports … it’s a fascinating principle. I’m really suprised the UK govt. would want to go there. Is there any history to the idea ?

    Recharge your batteries, get your head screwed on right and forge onwards. If you really have lost heart, then just leave it till you feel otherwise. No sense in making yourself ill, which you most likely will, and without the spirit inside I doubt you will make much progress. I came back to see what you had to say on the ‘terror plot’ verdict. I didn’t visit your blog for a good few weeks because I needed a break myself. Maybe ridding your site of shills might be a good idea? I reiterate, shills and not simply people with different opinions! These scrotes are easy to identify pretty much. The internet is actually crawling with agents of the powers that be and it is a lot worse than I first thought. They operate on many blogs, forums and chat rooms. Sad, sick and pathetic. Never doubt yourself and I sincerely hope to see you back soon!

  • Shug

    Craig,

    Interested to hear of your analysis of the ‘Airline explosive plot’; verdicts delivered today.

    The government had to secure some guilty verdicts, otherwise there would be no end to the criticsm that they would have received – putting the public through the airport liquid restrictions etc.

    Note that the trial just finished was on its 3rd set of jury members, so desperate were the authorities to secure a conviction. This was also a second trial, after no ‘airline’ connection was found by the jury in September 2008.

    & What has happened to Rashid Rauf or Mohammed Gulzar, originally both touted as the ‘ring-leaders’ of the plot.

    What a load of old cobblers…….

    Give us a blog post in the sorely missed, hard hitting style of Postman Patel.

    Best Wishes

    Shugster

    Craig, you want to think about how many people you have undoubtedly saved from death and torture. You can’t quantify this sort of thing, but it’s a cast iron fact if you think about it. Simply by bringing this to the public domain, even if not to the mass media yet, you will have made those in positions of power very uneasy. They will be going out of their way to distance themselves from this. The obvious result will be a decrease in this sort of activity.

    P.S. I hope that’s an ‘I’ll be back’ Arnie style by the way. :-0

    @Shug From OrwellianUK on medialens

    From the memory hole on this:

    http://www.septicisle.info/2008/09/crying-over-spilt-liquid.html#comments

    and from Craig Murray (where I also sourced the above link)

    http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2008/09/nonexistent_big.html

    in reply to Spike who said

    Much crowing from the BBC tonight on this, it’s just a shame it took two trials to get the exact result they were looking for, although I imagine trivial details like this will be easily forgotten now the official verdict is in. And on the face of it, it’s just a case of criminals get caught perpetrating criminal acts, but that’s not good enough. The real significance is expressed succinctly by Alan Johnson –

    “This case reaffirms that we face a real and serious threat from terrorism.”

    And Lord Carlisle (independent reviewer of terrorism laws)

    “It’s an important set of convictions demonstrating that there’s a great risk from terrorism”

  • Chris

    The new terror verdict seems to ignore that the so-called explosives were highly unlikely to cause significant damage.
