Britain last night faced the growing threat of a United States boycott over the release of the Lockerbie bomber.

Campaigners are calling on Americans to cancel trips to the UK and avoid British goods after Abdelbasset Ali Al Megrahi was allowed back to Libya on compassionate grounds.

Internet protesters are even calling on customers to target British banks and oil firm BP.

To be honest, the American government are the biggest ********* in human history.
Megrahi was jailed for a crime he almost definetly didn't commit and the US know this but still want to mess things up
We should be boycotting US products rather than the opposite, especially seeing as all the sucking up the UK government has done to US like involvement in the Iraq/Afghanistan wars etc

A crime that was almost certainly in retaliation for the US 'accidentally' shooting down an Iranian passenger plane ( link below for those not familiar with the incident).

How the US has the bare-faced brass I do not know.

so a few less american tourists then? can only be a good thing-95 percent of em dont even own a passport anyway so big deal.

remember the same american intelligence service(and in many cases the same people) who named megrahi as the bomber also produced the infamous weapons of mass destruction dossier to justify invading iraq.

"american intelligence"-only one of those words is true.

I think he was a scapegoat but you shouldn't condem a people on whats reported about them in our tabloid press............

I doubt the boycott will get anywhere as American tv news and press tend to concentrate on state and provincial stories give relavtively little coverage to report wider international issues which is why quite a few Americans don't even know that Brits are fighting in Afghanistan or were in the Iraq conflicts......

100% right, or perhaps it could have been the US who shot down the Panam Lockerbie plane as well to try and play both sides? a bit similar to the Stealth Boat in Tommorow Never Dies.
but did any americans get jailed for life for blowing up a plane full of people? no way, so yes they have no right being against the UK for releasing one guy

Well at least we know the Scottish tax money isn't going on education in England!!

Why do you think Scotland want to have independence when it comes to paying taxes and public spending? Because Scotland gives a lot more to England monetary wise then they get back

On topic, I think the justice sec should be drug tested cos nobody in their right mind would let a terrorist off like that!!

Maybe we should do what the yanks did and train and arm the taliban because that was such a good idea.

I know Gordon Brown is a bit of a div, but any country that has Goerge Bush voted in a president not once but twice does not have a clue!!
banned#19
lets hope this boycott really takes hold and then we can retaliate by withdrawing our troops from afghanistan. Will save more than the yanks spend!

Americans - Nice but dim

No I'm not even scottish or british so haven't got a chip on my shoulder. Just seems a few english users post 6 + 7 (wasn't trying to single casper out his was just last post on it but at least he was joking) do have a chip on their shoulders so I was just putting them right!
Scotland seems to go from being british to just scottish very quick when something goes wrong.

the british forces are better than americans because we have superior training and are adaptable as we dont fund the equipment like usa do they have better weapons but dont know how to use them which is why most of the firing they did in iraq and afghanistan hit our boys instead of the enemies
