There's very good reasons why "evidence" isn't used in court, not that the "FREEDUMB" fighters will take the slightest bit of notice.

Salmond needs to be very careful what he puts out there, directly or indirectly as there's a good chance the other side has quite a bit of "evidence" that wasn't used too.

As for names would be named, that intrigues me.
Sounds like a book is in the making.

Revenge is a dish best served cold!

Just in case anyone’s not worshipped at our favourite clergyman’s altar today.

He is getting worse. I tried, very hard, to read the whole thing but my mind could not cope with it - I am so glad that I will never meet, nor have to listen to, the southern Reverend.

Whatever you think about Salmond, he is the consumate politician. His name has been dragged through the mud and some of it will stick. He seems to think he has got a couple of high value cards up his sleeve and will no doubt use them when he thinks the time is right.
The big loser when it all hits the fan will be the SNP, which suits me just fine.

Personally I have very little feelings about our favourite clergyman, however I would watch (and rewatch again multiple times) the author of Wee ginger dug being torn limb from limb by an angry Silverback gorilla.

Don’t return the ‘soap on a rope’ just yet Eck!!

Salmond is clearly feeling invincible at the minute and wanting to kick the hornets nest with St.Nic sounding on the news last night like she’s expecting it to get messy but don’t count your chickens just yet Alex....

Discipline is slipping and the true colours now show with the fun never stopping in the party that claimed to be different, whiter than white even.

The real challenge will be for whatever political party has to try and pick up the pieces which are a result of the mismanagement and money wasting the SNP have ‘delivered’ during their time in office.

Some enlightening posts over the last year or so
His book on sekunder Burnes is on the to read list
The man’s a deluded fantasist desperate for “revenge” against the “British Establishment” as “they” ruined his career. You only need to read the bit at the bottom of his blog to see that. This is a man who publicly stated he was attempting to get access to the court CCTV during Salmond’s trial and just a cursory glance at the replies is enough to know he attracts many similar people.

Thanks @CanteenCowboy I thought there was something wrong with him. He is the one who writes/reports for RT and basically said that the UK had made up the Salisbury incident. He will put the knife in the UK's back for any reason true or not.

It did seem a wee bit one sided on the posts I read ref civil servants

The Natz / YesPests on social media are rejoicing in the Salmond trial verdicts and calling for the ‘bitches’
(they mean ‘complainers’) to be named and shamed, prosecuted, sent to Eck’s tent and other cruel and unusual punishments. More than one zoomer referred to them as ‘the victims’. They, Cybernatz, really are despicable.

Regarding Craig Murray, I seem to recall he put himself forward as an SNP MSP candidate a while back and was very annoyed when he wasn’t selected to stand.

Ok, ok, it's the DM stirring the sh!t but this does have a ring if possibility about it


It is true that Sturgeon has failed both in running Scotland and in pushing for Independence. She is floundering and this case has not helped her cause.

If Salmond returns with Cherry* as his deputy is this lining up Cherry as the face of Scottish Independence? :)

* What is it with SNP politicians vying for leadership have names of foodstuffs?

Unfortunately until there is a decent opposition in place they will continue to fight among themselves but remain in power.

The cracks are there and getting bigger but until more of the less ‘independence above all else’ voters start actually looking at the figures and realising things are going to come crashing down or cost more money in the very near future with the way things are going they will continue to fuel the party machine.

I’m all for another referendum to be honest. I fail to see how, once the reality of the financial situation an independent Scotland would face is put to the people, the outcome would be any different than the last time.

The ‘White Paper’ which was absolute assumed tosh anyway is completely irrelevant and would need re-written, hopefully by someone with even a slight perspective on reality.

Oil prices have not been above $70 for about two years and now sitting at about $30 a barrel....... only about $100 less than the projections of the said paper. Whisky - US duty increased due to fall outs with the EU regarding trade.... etc, etc.

I can't see independance being on the table for a couple of years. There won't be the finances or the will for a long time after this madness has ended. Sturgeon is doing a pretty good impression of a first minister at the moment (although all the initiatives are coming from Westmonster) however if she starts banging the freedom drum too soon after the crisis, she may find that the vast majority just want to rebuild their lives and pay off their debts.
