Jimbo, KT14 Shouldtherebe an inquiry over freed bomber? Some people only get married for the wedding. They forget it is about spending the rest of your lives together. Well done Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux, pictured, for realising that and having a low-key wedding in Italy. Tessa, London Im GLaD they had a simple do on the amalfi coast. Ive been there and it is truly spectacular. I couldnt afford to stay in the same hotel though! Kath, London IF I wanted to have a secret wedding, Id be disappointed to get quite this much coverage in the national press. and you wouldnt say theyve been exactly camera-shy since theyve been together. Lisa, Harrow aNNIVeRsaRIes mean little usually, but today is exactly 70 years since the outbreak of hostilities between Britain and germany in the second World War. We should all pause to think about those who were lost in the conflict.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite R EGARDLESS of Gordon Browns repeated denials, theres a long shadow of suspicion looming over the whole affair. The Americans say a commitment was given that Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi would remain in prison for the rest of his life for killing 270 people in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, yet now he has been freed, albeit on compassionate grounds because of his terminal cancer. Others speculate about a link with British busi- ness interests in Libya. If only to allay suspicions, there must be an inquiry. Ralph, Fulham NONE of this makes any sense. If you commit mass murder, you should die in jail. If youre found to be innocent, your case is re-examined legally. The Scottish Executive and, I believe, the British Government, have both behaved improp- erly and disgracefully. Kevin T, Beckenham If wE are to have an inquiry it should address the real issue and not continue this Brown-bashing. The decision to free Me g rahi was not made by the Government in westminster but by Scotland, and was based on a principle to allow the possibility of compassionate leave for dying prisoners to return home when on the point of death. The issue is whether Scotlands policy is right and whether or not it should have applied in this case. It sets a scary precedent. Martin Clerkenwell, London IN INTERNATIONAL relations you cant isolate yourself and that means you deal with people you might not want to and make compromises in order to advance your national interests. Take Americas dealings with Saddam Hussein in the Eighties as an unfortunately necessary bedfellow against Iran, and with the Afghan Mujahideen during the Soviet occupation. Saint, London If THERE was a deal Im not angry on that point. But we shouldnt be lied to. why cant we have some honest politics these days? Look mate, we had to hand him over to get the oil. what can you do, eh? People might even say fair enough. ML, London DOES anyone really believe that Megrahi was responsible for putting a b o m b o n the Pan Am plane that crashed over Lockerbie? Allowing a terminally ill man to go free on condition that he dropped his appeal appears very convenient. we need an inquiry to establish the truth. Austen, London IT IS one thing to try to double- deal the United States but it is another thing to do it quite so incompetently. Chris, Hornsey IT IS very simple. Brown would n o t h av e approved of Megrahi being freed, but he did not want him to die in prison and thus become a martyr. The two are entirely different. when Megrahi was in the final stages of his life, then, and only then, could he be transported to Tripoli to die there.
