In 2009, the BBC's Nick Robinson reported that the British Government was supporting a legal action against Libya by victims of the Lockerbie Bombing:
- So why does the victims' lawyer insist it is not, in fact, a U-turn? In part, it's because Brown said then, and still says now, that he will not engage directly with Gaddafi to get compensation - that, he insists, would not be "appropriate".
- In part, perhaps, it's because Jason McCue does not want to slap in the face someone who's just given him some of what he wants. McCue and his wife, Mariella Frostrup are, incidentally, also friends of the Browns.
