Miranda: As I understand it, the decision was discretionary. Apparently there were guidelines for compassionate release, but the way the British Press talks about it these seem to have been created for cover rather than for regulation. I am pretty sure that MacAskill was just channeling for Gordon Brown. The real deal was almost certainly brokered by Whitehall.
