Settlement for Gadaffi’s victims here at last?

Lawyer Jason McCue tells the Sunday Times that the IRA victims of Libyan supplied semtex explosive will now receive a total of £450 million.  Justice is also promised for the relatives of WPC Yvonne Fletcher and other Britsh victims of Libyan sponsored terrorism.   Let’s hope the enterprising campaigners aren’t counting their Libyan chickens too early.  Since optimism is reigning, why not the full story of Lockerbie next?
