How Insensitive

Kenny MacAskill, the man who decided to release Lockerbie bomber Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi, says that the cold-blooded murderer of 270 people is insensitive:

The man who took the decision to free the Lockerbie bomber from jail on compassionate grounds accused him yesterday of breaking an undertaking not to celebrate his release.

Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi, the Libyan convicted of the bombing, had shown “no sensitivity” to the families of those who died, Kenny MacAskill, Scotland’s Justice Secretary, told the Scottish Parliament. It was the first time that Scotland’s Nationalist administration has joined the condemnation of the triumphal scenes.

Ah, strains of Jobim run through my head. How insensitive... Murder, apparently is excusable. Eight years in a British hell-hole intolerable, but insensitivity is a step too far!
