Being the lord advocate means ‘always being ten minutes away from disaster’

This is the headline over a lengthy profile of the outgoing Lord Advocate, Frank Mulholland QC, in today’s edition of The Times. Scanning the article for references to Mr Mulholland’s absolutely outrageous conduct in connexion with Justice for Megrahi’s allegations of criminal misconduct in the Lockerbie investigation, prosecution and trial, my eyes lit upon the following:

“The departing lord advocate has kept some very bad company over the years. He had the satisfaction of dealing with Robert Black …”

Great was my disappointment to discover that the reference is to the serial killer, not to me.

The profile contains no reference whatsoever to Lockerbie or the Megrahi case. This is perhaps just as well, since any such reference would of necessity have conflicted with the saccharine tone of the rest of the piece.
