Al-Megrahi has two more years to live.

1 year ago Abdelbasset Ali al-Megrahi was released from a Scottish prison on compassionate grounds as he was terminally ill with cancer and had been given only three more months to live. Today, he is still alive, living in Libya and is miraculously expected to live a further 2 years with the help of cancer fighting drugs from the US.

Is this a miracle? I doubt it. Is the government to blame? Is BP to blame? I'm not sure, they are being blamed for everything at the moment. One thing I am sure of though is that this stinks. I started thinking back to our previous dealings with Libya.

Less than a year ago our previous prime minister Tony Blair was in Libya being treated like a king by Colonel Gadaffi and a few overseas contracts have been thrown this countries way, probably to companies with affiliations to ex MPs and PMs, maybe MPs who are yet to be employed by the companies who won contracts, do I need to say any more than that?
