The scenes at Tripoli airport tonight, complete with Saltire flying as the Daily Telegraph points out in its headline.
Someone has just called me and asked: "Is this what they meant by the Year of Homecoming?"
The Scottish Parliament has been recalled to debate the Megrahi release, and the government's handling of the issue, on Monday so someone can put the question to Kenny MacAskill, the Justice Secretary, then.
Although I blogged earlier that he was getting pelters from the London media I see Mr MacAskill has had support from an unlikely quarter - Alan Cochrane of the Daily Telegraph .
