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.

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.
