Once again the Prime Minister has done one of his disappearing acts. It’s curious that he can find his way to the camera to lecture the world on economics, or appear on YouTube, or comment on the latest celebrity news, but not to speak on an issue of national importance such as the release of the Lockerbie bomber. The British people have the right to know what their Prime Minister thinks about the release of Mr al-Megrahi. It may be seen by him as a matter for the Scottish Government but it affects the reputation of our whole country.
Mr Brown has proved once again that when the going gets tough, he gets going.
