In the spirit of full disclosure and following on from this morning’s post, I thought I’d flag up a poll from Ipsos/Mori commissioned by STV on Megrahi’s release:
On the question of whether Kenny MacAskill should have allowed Megrahi return home to die, the results were:
Disagreed – 54% (46% prior year)
Agreed – 35% (42% prior year)
So, support for the decision is thinning and I suppose that is to be expected given how unlikely it is for someone to go from being against the decision to being in favour of it just because the man has lived longer than expected.
I still don’t think this issue should, or will, dominate Scotland’s domestic political agenda for the months and years to come.
