The compilation of articles accessible below provide the answer to why Tony Blair and Royal Dutch Shell executive director Malcolm Brinded (above left), sucked up to the Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi, the monster ultimately responsible for the Pan-Am 103 bombing and other terrorist atrocities. They include the murder of a British police constable Yvonne Fletcher shot outside the Libyan Embassy in London while policing an anti-Gaddafi demonstration.

Last night a remarkable 90 minute documentary was aired on BBC FOUR TV under the title: Mad Dog: Gaddafi’s Secret World

Part of the documentary covered the bombing of Pan Am 103 and the subsequent release of the convicted bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi in a deal involving oil.

Shell is the only oil company named in the documentary. It claims to operate under strict business principles, but in fact has no scruples at all.

The following are extracts from a related Daily Mail article published under the headline: Shell wrote letter Tony Blair used in £325m Libyan oil deal

Tony Blair used a letter written by Shell to lobby Colonel Gaddafi on its behalf to clinch an oil deal, documents reveal.

A letter he wrote to the Libyan leader bears a remarkable similarity to a briefing note Royal Dutch Shell sent him weeks earlier promoting a £325million deal.

The correspondence, obtained under a Freedom of Information request, reveals just how much Mr Blair was influenced by the oil company when he was Prime Minister.

It also puts into question the Government’s motives for releasing Lockerbie bomber Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi.

Lockerbie victims have accused the Government of releasing the terrorist in order to allow British companies better access to oil and gas deals in Libya. The letters reveal that

Shell asked Mr Blair to discuss progress on weapons of mass destruction and about information on the investigation into the murder of WPC Yvonne Fletcher outside the Libyan Embassy in London in 1984.

The objective was ‘to cause the Leader to instruct the Cabinet to approve/finalise quickly’ the company’s deal, according to the Shell draft.

Shell advised the Prime Minister to congratulate Colonel Muammar Gaddafi on Revolution Day and to comment on Libya’s ‘remarkable year of progress’.
