Don't agree FF - it is certainly being touted as free scoff for all primary school children.
ETA - I think that is what you were saying though, in that the middle classes would not be getting the support payments as these are likely to be based upon those already claiming benefits and not a separate payment open for solo applications.
Agreed. He had his day in court and wasn't found guilty, doesn't mean he didn't do it.Depends if the 9 women involved all say it wasn't consensual
And once she's gone, the whole sorry Party will fall apart because the rest are just about 2nd rate councillors at their best.Agreed. He had his day in court and wasn't found guilty, doesn't mean he didn't do it.
There's a mighty strong wiff that Nicola (PBUH) knew, there just needs to be some concrete proof of that and she at least should be a goner.
Which they did.
But the court decided it was not proven beyond reasonable doubt (was it a State prosecution or civil?) or at least not on the balance of probabilities.
Yet another win for the Chief Mammy, who said that Scotland would be a shining light in bringing rapists to account.
State Prosecution, that old pesky corroboration that's required under Scots Law meant it was her word against his, 2nd hers word against his, 3rd hers word against his etc
However there is also the higher level of proof required of beyond reasonable doubt rather than the lower balance of probabilities,
The burden of proof in a criminal case requires the evidence to demonstrate that guilt has been proven 'beyond reasonable doubt'. Scots Law is unique in having three possible verdicts; guilty, 'not guilty' and 'not proven'. The not proven verdict indicates that the evidence did not prove the case beyond reasonable doubt.
The outcome of a civil law case is decided on the balance of probabilities that the act, or omission, alleged occurred
Some of them think "Red Andy" Marr, the former Maoist, is a Tory. What kind of extreme left single party totalitarian dictatorship do they want?They already have their one party state and are using it to push through bad legislation. There's no fixing this. The SNP have been allowed to run riot and control the narrative to the point that their truth is the only truth. Have a look at some of those Faceache comments above and tell me those folk aren't brainwashed idiots? If you have some time to spare and want to peer into the abyss of absolute insanity, check out some of the independence groups. It's genuinely horrifying.
