Ian Bell’s Saturday Essay

Bell on the al Megrahi fall-out.

My favourite line –The idea that we are better than terrorists and should act accordingly has, it appears, caused the most offence.”

Brian Cox’s bitch slapping of Gloria Hunniford “hard questioning” on BBC1 last night was good, as well.

As for American allies? Check out this. Their website is here. Some of their points, about dirty politics and trading with terrorist states are perfectly valid, but they seem unable (or unwilling) to accept that’s exactly what the US will do, as well. At least other European papers are showing their support.
