U-Turns, handbrake turns and general changes in direction

LIBYA – former pariah state, backer of terrorism and all round nasty guys. Well that was the view until a wee while ago.

Then global oil prices went up…

Compensation for Lockerbie victims – done

Oil deals with British companies – done

Convicted bomber released – done

Compensation for victims of terror….errrr no, definitely not done.

That compensation debate has gone from no chance, to we’ll set up a special unit, to the Libyans saying that the matter is closed and go to courts if you think you have a chance…

Gordon Brown’s flip-flopping backwards and forwards now means he is eligible to go on Top Gear and test drive cars ability to change direction quickly.
