THE TRIAL OF ALEX SALMOND BBC2 9pm TONIGHT.
He was cleared of all charges, to the huge disappointment of the plotters and schemers and their allies in the media but their mission to smear him continues on BBC 2 tonight where not one but three of his accusers take part in a BBC documentary about his trial. Of course they will do so secretly, not revealing their identity. It will be BOTH cowardly and despicable.
Protected by the court they are free to continue to smear a man who was cleared of all charges by a jury that included more women than men. Where is the justice in that? The law is an ass…a dangerous ass. The court route failed because the charges were ludicrous and contrived. Now they are intent on pursuing their vendetta through the media where there are always plenty of takers for anything that can harm the cause of Independence. They know their plot has done so and even though it fell flat in their faces it carries no personal price because their identities are protected and the SNP have done nothing to discipline them. They do enormous harm to genuine cases by their actions. We must make sure none of them are candidates in May 2021. The thought that is even a possibility is a black stain against our entire movement. I suggest if you have not already done so you must read the wings article “clearing the smoke” which is published today. This is a NEC a million miles away from the ordinary membership.
The letter below has been sent to the Lord Advocate because the state aided prosecution continues and now others find themselves being charged and facing trial.
Prepare yourselves for much wailing and self pity from the plotters you would think it was them that were facing the charges and could have spent the rest of their lives in jail. Would that it was!
The fact that the BBC and Kirsty Wark continue the persecution of Alex and the justice system in Scotland offers an innocent man no protection, sums up just how corrupt and useless our Justice System has become. THIS IS THE BRITISH STATE AT WORK AIDED AND ABETTED BY PEOPLE IN HIGH POSITION IN THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT. WHY ARE THEY ASSISTING THE FORCES OF UNION? SELF INTEREST AND SALARIES, NO NEED FOR A QUESTION MARK.
“To the Lord Advocate
DEAR Mr Wolffe,
We are writing to you to express our growing concern over the actions of both the Crown Office and Police Scotland.
In recent weeks vocal independence supporters and backers of the former First Minister Alex Salmond, specifically the former UK diplomat, human rights campaigner and journalist Craig Murray along with fellow journalist Mark Hirst, have been arrested and charged in relation to comments they made publicly during and following the trial of Mr Salmond. Other supporters of Mr Salmond have also been contacted by police and warned over online comments they made in the wake of the trial.
We are particularly concerned to note that the investigating police officers are the same detectives who led the investigation against Mr Salmond over a period of two years and at considerable cost to the public purse.
As you know, the prosecution following from that investigation, pursued again at considerable cost to the public purse, resulted in the acquittal of Mr Salmond on all charges and now raises the most serious questions about why that investigation and that prosecution were pursued.
Whilst we appreciate that you cannot be involved in individual cases you will undoubtedly be aware that complaints of alleged Contempt of Court were made against six other individual journalists widely regarded as being hostile in their reporting of Mr Salmond. No action by the Crown Office or Police Scotland has been taken against any of those individuals. This leaves the distinct impression that Police Scotland, at the direction of the Crown Office, is acting in a manner that is both biased and disproportionate.
As you will be aware, for public confidence to be maintained in our independent legal system the law must be able to both demonstrate it is acting impartially and be seen to be doing so.
The actions taken so far risk establishing a public perception that both Police Scotland and the Crown Office are conducting themselves in a manner which is biased and is indeed political in nature.
Such perceptions risk seriously damaging confidence in the Scottish legal system.
We would welcome your fullest public response to the concerns raised in this letter and any meaningful public assurances you can offer that both Police Scotland and the Crown Office are complying with their obligations to act with complete impartiality and to apply the law fairly.
