I'm irritated at the media storm which has been whipped up around the Megrahi issue of late - particularly where there's been misinformation, and fingers being pointed in entirely the wrong direction. The lack of respect for the Scottish Government and Parliament by UK politicians is disappointing, but not unsurprising.

I've been impressed however by the calm and reasoned reaction to the criticism by Alex Salmond, coming across as particularly statesman-like on Newsnicht. Today sees the publication of a fullsome response to Senator Kerry in his capacity as Chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which you can read here. It's worth a look.
