A strong feeling of the need to apologise for the obsession with Afghanistan on this blog is somewhat tempered by the realisation that, this week, we have had near-record hits, albeit that an increasing number are directed at Defence of the Realm. Fortunately for the government, the Lockerbie affair has dominated the front pages this week, with the repatriation of Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed Megrahi and the faux indignation directed at the Scottish Executive for releasing a "mass murderer" to die (or not) with his family.

When one comes to think about it we live in a paradoxical world.
As never before, we have an abundance of information in this 'Age of the Internet'' the quantity of which boggles even the minds of the super-intelligent....but I doubt that we have ever been so badly, not to say mendaciously, informed...the spirit of Josef Goebbels must be spinning with envy.
As any girl will tell you, it is the quality that counts.
The sheer quantity conceals the truths we seek...the amount of 'misleading evidence' is so vast that the common Joe quickly gives up his search for answers to questions he finds pertinent to his life. Truths are suffocated under a deluge of displacement dross & prevarication...
"We are but pawns in a bigger game."...how true
Examples there are legion, but try this 'small' one for size:

Has anyone appeared in Court in either the 'Cash for Peerages' affair or the 'MPs expenses' boondoggle? Never mind the MEPs superscams.

Perhaps it is the other way around - The Scottish Executive aiming to smother Megrahi's release with the Afghan election and failing.
