Compassion for Lockerbie bomber but not for Hollie Greig
Where is our justice?……Don’t we have enough oil?
We can all recall the compassion that floated around Scotland for Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, suffering from terminal prostate cancer. He was freed from prison in Scotland by Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill on compassionate grounds who stated that Megrahi was “going home to die.”
This case was certainly full of emotion when this man was released with the full approval of Alex Salmond and the Scottish Judicial System. The Prime Minister Gordon Brown said this was a matter for Scotland but of course we know that massive trade benefits existed both between the UK Government and Libya and between Alex Salmond and the Government of Qatar all of whom had conditions attached.
It would appear that Westminster only chooses to isolate itself from Scotland when it is convenient to do so, however many times we do see our Central Government intervening on certain issue in Scotland, especially in protecting the North Sea gas/oil reserves. This is truly double standards at its best. So I guess the question will always be was Megrahi the right suspect in the first place or was this a sacrificial lamb to calm the nerves of the British Government. Either way he was released but what has this to do with poor Hollie Greig?
The emphasis here is that word used in Scotland called “Compassion”…..where was Alex Salmond’s compassion when he heard of the Hollie’s ordeal? How come so much attention for Megrahi who only had a couple of month’s to live (allegedly) and yet we are now in February 2010 almost 6 months on and our man is still alive and kicking down in Libya. I repeat that maybe this man was innocent but none the less he was convicted and the Scottish Government gave this man freedom on the grounds of compassion due to his terminal illness. Hollie Greig went to hell and back whilst under the sadistic control of her Father and the extended ring of pedophiles that prayed on her on almost a daily basis.
It would appear that the Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill is linked to Lord Advocate’s choice of lawyers. Amazingly, it can now be revealed the Scottish Government’s current Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill has long standing ties to Levy & McRae, the same law firm used by the Lord Advocate to threaten media publication of the Hollie Greig Case.
Mr MacAskill is now known to have served his apprenticeship at Levy & McRae and also worked at the firm for a considerable time during his years as a solicitor. So Mr. MacAskill where is your same compassion for Hollie Greig? I would also ask again the same question to the not so honorable Alex Salmond….where is your compassion sir?
We know that the Prime Minister and David Miliband were involved in the release of Megrahi as well as Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond and Kenny MacAskill. Here was some of the headlines that were around at the time: “Brown finally admitted that he agreed with the Scottish executive’s decision to release the Lockerbie bomber on compassionate grounds” Brown later said on a visit to Birmingham that “There was no conspiracy, no cover-up, no double-dealing, no deal on oil, no attempt to instruct Scottish ministers, no private assurances by me to Colonel Gaddafi.”
Up in Scotland some of their headlines also confirmed a common relationship when Salmond said his justice secretary, Kenny MacAskill, had made a “difficult, challenging and brave decision”, which he claimed had effectively been endorsed by Gordon Brown and foreign secretary David Miliband. By contrast, he said, the Scottish Labour leader, Iain Gray, was guilty of “monumental double-standards” for voting against the release even after it became clear that the prime minister did not want Megrahi to die in jail. It also emerged that a senior Tory peer, Lord Trefgarne, had pressurised MacAskill to release Megrahi to further the business interests of Scottish companies in Libya. Trefgarne, chairman of the Libyan British Business Council, said Megrahi’s fate was of “grave concern” to his members because of Libyan warnings that his death in custody would severely damaging business relations.
This proves that despite Brown saying that this was a Scottish matter and a Scottish decision there was clearly a controlling mechanism stretching all the way from London to Edinburgh.
I would again ask these questions of our Prime Minister…”Why are you not becoming involved in the Hollie Greig case”? You are the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to which Scotland forms part and in this context you have the authority to intervene in this shocking case involving people in high places. What I had noticed was one simple sentence on the No 10 Webpage which reads as follows:
Government will work to protect children – PM: Gordon Brown has said the Government will take “every available step” to protect children from early sexualisation. So why have you not taken every available step to protect Hollie Greig? Why have you not intervened? Why hasn’t Scotland Yard become involved in this grotesque file of Pedophilia that is running rife in Scotland? Why wasn’t a case of multiple rapes, of a poor child suffering from Down Syndrome, every looked into? Why was a so called suicide by Hollie’s Uncle Roy never investigated when it clearly was showing signs of being a possible murder case?
I have sent the following email off to No10 Downing Street via the Prime Ministers Web page and received acknowledgement of receipt which reads as follows:

Subject: Your message to Number 10. Date: Saturday, 27 February, 2010, 13:30 Thank you for your message:
Dear Prime Minister
I would like you to read the two articles as per the links below. This is a terrible story that only you yourself can fix as it has now gone too far. I know that you are Scottish and this hits at the heart of Scotland and all Mums and Dads.
This is an opportunity for you to hit back at Salmon and others whilst at the same time establishing law and order in the United Kingdom
I sincerely hope you can bring justice for dear Hollie and her mum Anne. We must all hang our head in shame over this story and how it has been allowed to pass by without attention or investigation.
You have declared that you will protect the children of the UK….this is your opportunity
It is so uplifting to see that my two articles are now bouncing around the world but to date still nothing in the UK Media which very clearly shows how controlled our media has become…….so much for democracy that we are so proud of and for what we go to war for (or so they say!) I sincerely hope that the Prime Minister will now look into this story as a fellow Scot and more importantly as a father.
We now understand that legal people in other countries are now studying this case with a very strong interest from an Attorney General in one of the US States….could this be the start of seeing out dear Hollie have her day in court.
It takes just one carefully planted seed to grow into a tree and bear fruit….I certainly hope that Hollie’s case is fruitful.
Bless you Hollie and your dear Mum
