Henry McLeish

Henry McLeish was Scotland's First Minister after the death of Donald Dewar. He defeated Jack McConnell to become Labour leader in the Scottish Executive. It is interesting to see that Jack McConnell MSP is one of the more outspoken critics of Kenny MacAskill's decision to release Al Megrahi on compassionate grounds. Henry McLeish on the other hand fully supports MacAskill's decision. I wonder whether this will take the wind out of Scottish Labour's sails for this afternoon's Holyrood debate on MacAskill's decision?
