Tommy Sheridan charged with perjury

#3
He always claimed to be a Socialist, surely that's proof enough?

Edited to add: I've just seen on the news that he was held at Gayfield Police Station.

Fnarr.

Four years in Barlinnie's 'Geoffrey Archer Suite' beckons if he's convicted. Plenty of time to write a Mein Kampf type memoir.

I dare say the News of the World will be asking for their 200 grand back too if he gets convicted, plus legal expenses of course.

Does anybody know what the rules are about convicted criminals and/or undischarged bankrupts sitting in the Scottish Parliament? Is it the same as Westminster where, iirc, you can't get elected if you've been inside for a year and a day or if you are bankrupt.

Edited to add:-

Kiss goodbye to the perma-tan Tommy. There's no sunbeds in the Bar-L :lol:


Edited again to add:-

There's already a lengthy (dare I say prewritten) diatribe on the web site of Tommy's Solidarity Scotland party. Apparently, Tommy's only been charged because the Scottish police, judiciary and prosecutors are controlled by Rupert Murdoch.

Anybody wanting to support Tommy should send contributions to:-

I happen to know that there has been a wee girl from that fine paper has been sitting outside his house since last night - sent there, no doubt, by someone with a smile on his face. The cops sitting in the car weren't too impressed to see her ...

Deserves everything coming to him in my view. :twisted:

Argh. Conflicted! :D

Generally quite dislike him but do appreciate that he, for the most part, stands by his beliefs and principles. Still a Trotskyite gobshite though.

However since I positively despise the NOTW I hope he wins his case.

I feel unclean.

He already won his case against the News of the World and was awarded 200 grand in libel damages.

This is a criminal case, basically accusing him of telling lies in court in order to win his NotW claim.

It's exactly the same sort of trial as Geoffrey Archer faced. He was found to have lied about hiring a prostitute when he sued a newspaper. Result - 4 years in jail.

Is'nt AA being investigated for alleged Contempt of Court?
He sure is LINK

This raises the prospect of Tommy having to find new legal representation in the middle of his trial if AA gets disbarred.

That's exactly what happened when he sued NotW. He parted company with his lawyers and had to represent himself for the rest of the case. This is extremely unusual and only happens in exceptional cases, such as your lawyers finding out that you're going to perjure yourself ...... errm.

Edited to add:-

The truth's coming out. Apparently Rupert Murdoch is a mere pawn. It's all down to Maggie getting her revenge because her ejection from No 10 was all down to Tommy.

We have consistently stated that Tommy Sheridan has been the victim of a collossal vendetta by the Rupert Murdoch media empire. A vendetta that is rooted in Tommy Sheridan's role as a leader of the anti-poll tax movement that destroyed the career of Margaret Thatcher.

Now that above is what being 'Bolshi' really means.
The term is often erronously applied to those who openly declare our bosses to be full of s'hit. Often that is nothing more than an honest and accurate statement. And the only crime such a fellow as that might have commited by opening his gob, is by stating the bleedin' obvious.

But being 'Bolshi' in its real sense is spouting how you are a heroic 'man of the people' when all the while you are in fact, just trying to cover your sorry arrse.
Dereck Draper, Arthur Scargill, Ken fcuking Livingston and Tony fcuking Benn have all, when its suited, indulged in the black art of being 'Bolshi.'

Who'd have thought it eh? A corrupt, lying weasle of a politician. I'm suprised he hasn't decide to join the Labour Party. He'd fit in well in Broons Cabinet.

No he wouldn't my dear chap - apparently Sheridan believes he is still a Socialist :oops:

Not too many of them is that group of sh1ts we call a Cabinet. However you correct in all other qualities - he would fit in very well!

How I enjoyed breakfast news this morning, as St Tommy swore honest injun it was all a fit up and the evil empire of Murdoch had arranged his betrayal and persecution. How do you tell Tommy Sheridan is lying? his lips are moving!
