Originally published in October 2021, this article is a useful reminder of the tactics being employed by a small number of people at the top of the SNP. The fact that they have continued on since this article was first published indicates the dangers have not passed and still exist. Any future Scottish Government requires to take action to limit the political cooperation between Government, Police and Courts when it is being used against political opponents. It is absolutely crucial that we retain juries for these type of trials. Only this week the police and prosecution services have been engaged in trying to uncover who leaked the Blackford meeting where he promised to support and welcome Patrick Grady following his suspension for sexual misbehaviour. Success seems unlikely when the police have totally failed to uncover who in the First Minister’s close circle leaked the ”charges” falsely alleged against Alex Salmond to the Daily Record. I know a lot of people who have a clear idea of who the likely culprit for that one is. Yet no police result thus far!
I am interested that Twitter and Facebook is full of people alleging Rhiannon Spear is the second complainant in the failed attempted prosecution/ persecution of Marion Millar. If true and I have no reason to question it, it is the latest involvement of senior SNP personnel in a series of prosecutions that have resulted in the reputation of the Scottish Justice system being trampled into the mire.
It all started with a series of bogus, trivial charges made against former First Minister Alex Salmond. It was widely reported in the mainstream media ( a protected species courtesy of Lady Dorrian) that senior SNP people were amongst the accusers. Identities were protected by an order from Lady Dorrian that ensured total secrecy, even after each and every accusation failed to deliver a guilty verdict and Mr Salmond was cleared of all charges.
Throughout both the judicial review and the subsequent criminal trial there was copious evidence of Government bias and interference as the Scottish Government sought to restrict the information available to the point where their own legal counsel threatened to withdraw from the case unless they desisted immediately. In the tiny window of opportunity between the Government losing their case before the judicial review and Mr Salmond being formally charged, someone from within a very tight circle within the Scottish Government decided to leak all the charges facing Mr Salmond to the Daily Record meaning he was tried and found guilty by the media long before any trial took place. This was no accident or unfortunate occurrence. This was malicious and entirely in line with Lesley Evans quote “ we may have lost the battle but we will win the war”. The Scottish Government were “at war” with Alex Salmond and they fully intended, from top to bottom to fight dirty. Extremely dirty!
The subsequent Parliamentary Enquiry was an even bigger farce as evidence was withheld and retracted, witnesses were forced to recant their previous sworn evidence as an outbreak of forgetfulness and “honest mistakes”swept the entire Scottish Government, no more so than when Nicola Sturgeon took the stand and recited a litany of “I cannot recall” I am unable to confirm” “ I would have to check etc”. Days after her testimony a considerable amount of evidence that was withheld because it “endangered identification of those making the allegations” was suddenly revealed not to do so but instead contained facts that would have conflicted with the First Minister’s story.
We know that some of the alphabet women were also behind the trial of Craig Murray. No chances were taken this time, as an example of bad and unfair justice this trial was exemplary, no Jury, no right of appeal, judged solely by the same judge that had excluded him from the Salmond trial, using archaic legislation describing jigsaw identification where even the judge could not explain what it was, requiring mystical “interpretation” by the judge to determine conviction. This the same judge who has advocated removing juries from cases involving sexual matters. That move must never happen.
We then move to the case of Mark Hirst, who following complaints from some of the alphabet women, was arrested. He lost work worth thousands of pounds, run up a substantial legal bill preparing his defence. All his computer equipment necessary for his work was seized by the police. When the case came to court many months later it was dismissed out of hand by the judge as having no case to answer. Mark’s career and finances were decimated by this whole perverse action while those who made the ludicrous allegations were not out a penny because the daft law paid for all their legal costs while the innocent party is required to fund his own, with no recourse to recover the money when the allegations are shown to have no worth or value.
Then came the case of Marion Millar, whose case resulted in collapse this week. It had no worth or value and was further evidence that the legal system is being used by a politically motivated grouping close to the First Minister and who share her gender reforming objectives. I am reading the dropping of this case is “subject to review” and it is not over until that review is complete. This looks to a layman like myself to be yet another legal tactic to prolong the pressure on Marion. I am told, by sources I trust that another senior member of the SNP was the co complainant in this case. We should not make the mistake of thinking that the Marion Millar case is the last of its kind. Another is in the pipeline with Dave Llewelyn facing ludicrous allegations at an early December court date. ( Editor note this case is still ongoing) The allegations come from, wait for it, from two very senior SNP MEMBERS, including one MSP. Senior SNP members seen as very close to the First Minister.
So Dr Watson do you see the common thread running through all the cases? They can’t all be coincidences, how likely is it that all these senior SNP PEOPLE COULD BECOME EMBROILED IN ALL THESE DIFFERENT CASES OVER SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME?
YOUR RIGHT SHERLOCK, THESE ARE NOT COINCIDENCE, THIS IS A DETERMINED STRATEGY BY SOMEBODY RIGHT AT THE TOP.
WILL THEY GET AWAY WITH IT?
Not in the long term. you cannot stay in power forever and when a new broom comes in who knows what will be uncovered? It just takes one politician or civil servant to crack and the whole plot will unravel.. One will, given time.
The Nu SNP leadership guide book
To become a senior SNP figure it is necessary to raise spurious and frivolous charges against political rivals and opponents. Money is no object because they use state finance to weaken their opponents while “the accused” can be damaged both in terms of reputation and financially crippled in the process. The eventual judgement is academic, they have always won before any trial takes place.
This is valuable research as they test just how best to use the Hate Crime Bill to intimidate and eliminate political opponents. Too date these tactics have been deployed solely against men. They are however looking at alternative charges that could be levied against females. Please note the terms male and female are now outdated and will be outlawed once self ID and GRA LEGISLATION is secured shortly.
By sheer coincidence a bit of information came my way the other day about senior SNP Office bearer Rhiannon Spear, the Woman’s Convener. You may remember she was defeated at the last SNP Conference but when her woke colleagues made it impossible for her successor to stay on the SNP NEC, and her successor left the Party, the Woke dominated NEC determined that she and her colleague Fiona Robertson could be returned to their previous posts MINUS the need for any internal election thus boosting even further the number of WOKE appointed, rather than elected NEC members.
Now the annual elections are underway in preparation for the SNP November Conference. I don’t know what her chances were of her being properly elected to her post but it doesn’t matter.Here is why.
At the last NEC she led a move to completely ignore a Conference instruction not to apply the same fixing procedures that were used to organise the Holyrood elections but to once again interfere in every Local Government area, no matter the already existing balances in place.
Much to her surprise, in what can only be explained as a collective nervousness not to stir up another storm amongst the membership during the period elections where being held, and this time not ignoring legal advice about not to interfere, the NEC voted and her move was defeated,much to her anger. The outcome was that she promptly threw a hissy fit, threw the toys out the pram and resigned as the Woman’s Convener. So one down about another twenty to go. On the other hand how convenient, given the collapse of the Marion Millar case there might have been calls for her resignation. Can’t happen now as she is already gone over another matter. Lucky, or did she know? ( Editors Note I have subsequently been informed that she was facing deselection from being the SNP candidate in her council seat). That she knew this, therefore a convenient “fallout” that allowed her to withdraw from her SNP positions was a more attractive option than being publicly dumped.
Given other reported events it’s not been a good month for Ms Spear. Which probably means its been a good month for everybody else.
I am, as always
YOURS FOR SCOTLAND.

Patrick Grady must be sweating at the thought of over 20 police officers being tasked with trawling through the past few decades of his life. Right? Or is it one law for real sex pests and another for manufactured ones in today’s New SNP? It’s interesting as well that them and their cultists are more enraged by the contents of their private meeting being leaked than they are at what actually happened during it. Says it all about what a rancid cesspit of a party they’ve become and I expect a constant drip-drip-drip of stories between now and when Nikla finally concedes defeat in her referendum “plans”.
Incidentally, is it just me, or is Alex Salmond suddenly getting a lot more media time? He was almost invisible during the recent election campaigns but now seems to be on TV regularly. It’s almost like someone is trying to rattle a particular pronoun obsessive.

There is a malice at the heart of all this which in my opinion, simply outstrips the capacity of any single person. That includes the capacity of one person to influence others and lead a group into conspiracy. I don’t buy this cult malarkey.
Never say never of course, but how does an amateurish Sunday league stitch-up manage to implicate the Scottish Legal System and Lord Advocate himself? Not one of the characters involved has impressed me with their guile or genius. In fact, when you look at it, how much of the “conspiracy” and suspicion is actually Scotland’s Legal Establishment looking after “dummies” who cannot even prosecute an amateurish conspiracy by themselves?
There is too much orchestration and forward planning to be the work of such a loose and casual alliance. All the exits are covered, and I mean all of them, with the review of one corruption after another, invariably falling into the next “safe” pair of hands. It’s scarcely a metaphor to say the custodian in charge of the evidence room was the very person implicated by the evidence. It is Kafkaesque, but literally the truth.
You need only look in detail at the gravity (or lack of it), of the “crimes” allegedly committed to realise there is something here which defies gravity. Marion Millar posting a picture of a suffragette’s ribbon? Really?? Mark Hirst using a common idiom which was entirely warranted by the circumstances? Not just malicious prosecution, but malicious and gratuitous surely…
Yet these utterly trivial “misdemeanours against humanity” are stalked by the grimly omnipotent Death Star of Scottish Justice. They tried to jail Salmond, Marion Millar faced 2 years in prison, I forget or maybe never knew the sentences others faced, but of course we have Craig Murray actually jailed. And don’t forget what Unionist shills were able to say and get away with without fear of prosecution…
(As a small aside… I have a wee voice in my head suggesting the delightful Ms Spears had a hand in Manny Singh’s prosecution too… but don’t take my word for it, that might be a solid memory of a doubtful rumour).
Something really stinks here, and I mean “really” stinks. This is Conspiracy Plus. It is government within government, but the substance of this has the potential to recalibrate Watergate scale of political scandal…. IF it ever sees the light of day.
I’m not altogether convinced about a new broom sweeping this clean either. We already have a new broom in the Lord Advocate’s office, but see no signs of much sweeping going on, (nor indeed any sleekit, cowrin, tim’rous beasties with apparent panic in their breasties)….
Until we have evidence, this is all circumstantial, but there has to be a greater interference at work here. “Somebody” wants regime change in Scotland before we’ve even got a regime…. But a regime change which apparently wants Sturgeon to stay exactly where she is.

Well said Breeks. This does really stink. Our justice system is politicised and it is corrupt. Excellent cases have been put together to demonstrate the abuse of justice and downright lies in the pursuit of Alex Salmond – I believe his solicitor filed for perjury with COPFS but of course asking a corrupt office to investigate perjury has its own set of problems.
I don’t know how we fix this but I know we can’t give up or give in. This will be difficult, “legally” dangerous and it will take a while but it has to be done. The Court of Session is perhaps our last resort – does anyone have a view on whether the corruption has reached this level? Will we end up in the English Supreme Court to convict our own justice system?

Wonderfully perceptive insight Breeks. Aye, the “dummies” are receiving the protection of the Scottish Legal Establishment. But why?
The “conspiracy” is a loose confederation of agencies with differing goals and priorities. It may be helpful to think of a spectrum.
MI5 are fundamentally opposed to independence, but in extreme circumstances may grudgingly accept a superficially independent Scotland whose leadership remains compliant to the demands of the British deep state.
The US State Department would prefer not to see an independent Scotland but wouldn’t be too upset if their global, strategic interests were protected (NATO, Rosyth & Coulport, the Scottish / Icelandic gap).
The Scottish Legal Establishment may be agnostic to the theory of independence but the thought of the “hordes of undisciplined, uneducated schemies from 2014” actually exercising political power, fills them with horror.
The upper echelons on NuSNP are theoretically committed to independence but DevoMax would be much less disruptive to their comfortable sinecures.
In terms of vulnerability to the vagaries of power, the spectrum is the same.
MI5 and the State Department are invulnerable, they wield the carrot and the stick with impunity.
The Scottish Legal Establishment are largely invulnerable. They can largely take care of their own even if kompromat exists.
NuSNP are firmly lodged at the bottom of the pile. They rely on “short money”. The State Department has its hooks in deep. MI5 has kompromat enough to fill a dozen filing cabinets.

Using the law to jail and or destroy political opponents is standard security service practice.
Blackmail and bribery is another of the security service’s standard practices.
Britain has done it all over the world, in colony after colony, and what better ways to either destroy an opponent or turn another to your bidding.
By way of example Lord Boothby of the rent boys and glass tables was well known to the security services. What services, what bidding did he do to have his reputation protected.
Or Sir Jimmy Saville OBE. Being close to royalty and prime ministers like Thatcher the security services were fully aware of his serial sexual predilections. But he was allowed to thrive whilst Willie McRae who threatened to bring down the Thatcher government was found shot in tjr most mysterious of circumstances.
Quite how much control the knowledge of participants of a Westminster paedophile ring gives the ringmaster one doesn’t need to think too hard. It’s a sword of potential exposure that would engender one huge amount of influence
No wonder therefore that there is more than speculation that McCrae was shot because he had the evidence of a paedophile ring and was going to use it to bring down the Thatcher government.
So yes, the SNP and SG have I believe been compromised. That is how the UK works, that is how it fights to retain colonies
2014 ran them close. Closer than we maybe know and they are determined to try and stop it.

I know what I think and that is that the police and the prosecution service are utterly corrupt.
There can be no doubt of that and malicious unfounded prosecutions are now the order of the day. And, as this article informs, the use of the police and prosecution to pursue political opponents shows absolutely no signs of abating.
There is now a policing vacuum developing with a breakdown of the rule of law. This is absolutely fatal to the good order of a society for without a rule of law, an honest police force, and an honest prosecution service, there can only be anarchy. We saw that in that horrible British statelet created as Northern Ireland with its rotten and partisan RUC, and where ultimately there was a huge kick back.
An utterly horrible situation and something that could and should never have been allowed. But a police force, prosecution and gerrymandered Government ultimately sowed the seeds of chaos. How long will people in Scotland accept a corrupt political police force. It is a reasonable question to ask. It is a question every democrat should be asking. For once the genie of retaliation is out of the bottle it is very difficult to get it back into that bottle.
Northern Ireland proved, or should have proved to anyone with any sense that injustice and state violence ultimately creates the circumstances where no one is safe. The British system of subjugating political opponents through institutional bias and partisan state force does not ultimately deliver anything other than misery.
So the challenge going forward for Scotland is to ensure what happened in Northern Ireland, not even one percent of it happens here. Yes Sturgeon, her clique and her establishment backers can abuse and intimidate, but for how long.
Not a road we ever ever want to go down.

This whole seedy fiasco should be a wakeup call for anybody who still thinks the SNP under Sturgeon is interested in accountability, justice and the rights of victims in sexual assault cases – all things they love to trumpet as some kind of evidence of their virtue. Their first instinct is, surprise surprise, to seek to punish the leaker, not to demonstrate their ‘zero tolerance’ of sexual harassment – a cause Sturgeon has made one of her most high profile issues.
No sympathy for the victim, but lashings of it, and a token ‘punishment’ for the perpetrator. Where are those ‘principles’ now? Instead of immediate suspension and expulsion of the perp, the instinct has been to shut down the leak and exposure of their miserable hypocrisy. Finally Sturgeon has been forced to mumble some vague, indeterminate phrases about ‘examining the procedures’ in an effort to quash it and pretend ‘something’ will be done.
Nobody remembers her being so indifferent when it comes to those who have political concerns about her and who she is happy to smear, prosecute, misrepresent and ban. Tim Rideout, an inconvenient enemy, has been banished for at most, an off colour joke about the appalling hypocrite Patel (which he apologised for), where nobody was harmed, and there was no victim, while Grady gets a two day holiday.
Sturgeons’ SNP are rank rotten hypocrites who practice highly selective and manipulative party politics and who appear to view their own dissident members as enemies of the state, while sleazy reprobates who are on board are granted immunity from the thought police.

We might consider what Albert Memmi said, that “every colonial nation carries the seeds of fascist temptation in its bosom.”
I’m afraid that postcolonial theory predicts all this, and worse to come if liberation is delayed unnecessarily. Colonialism, as we know, involves ethnic oppression, racism, prejudice and its root is fascism. And in this environment a dominant National Party elite does behave much like a gang, as we see, and together with representatives of the authorities, even those recruited from among the colonized, they busy themselves “to protect the interests of the colonizer whenever colonization is imperilled”. So what we see is a reaction of the authorities to protect colonization, to delay and even prevent independence by any means, which is now the objective of the dominant National Party elite as well as the (colonial) authorities.
