More interestingly, he states that Gordon Brown asked for 'sensitivity' to be shown to the mass murderer, and also that the release is a 'great victory' for Libya.
Well, at least he's honest about it.
Here is Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi arriving back in Libya and receiving the hero's welcome Gaddafi promised would never happen:
As thousands cheered, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was escorted down the steps of his plane by Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, son of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
thank his "courageous friend" Gordon Brown:
Yes, Mr Miliband - you're all so innocent and trustworthy, aren't you?
'And I say to my friend Brown, the Prime Minister of Britain, his Government, the Queen of Britain, Elizabeth, and Prince Andrew, who all contributed to encouraging the Scottish government to take this historic and courageous decision, despite the obstacles.'
Foreign Secretary David Miliband rejected suggestions that the Government wanted 57-year-old Megrahi released so commercial relations with oil-rich Libya could be improved.
'I really reject that entirely,' he said. 'That is a slur both on myself and the Government.'
The trade claim will intensify demands for Mr Brown to come clean about exactly what contacts Britain had with the former pariah state before Megrahi was freed on compassionate grounds - he has terminal prostate cancer.
Speaking on Libyan television, Colonel Gaddafi's son said Mr Blair raised the Megrahi case repeatedly to smooth the way for British firms to tap into Libya's energy reserves.
He told the Al Mutawassit channel: 'In all commercial contracts, for oil and gas with Britain, (Megrahi) was always on the negotiating table.'
How much more shame are these imbeciles going to pile on this country before they are finally kicked out of office?
