For the press, the media, political commentators, Yoons and everyone else, it was always going to be about one-upmanship. How could it not be? He was the former FM and still a powerful figure in the Nationalist movement. 

I thought he was guilty as sin tbh but he's obviously not. 

 

He’s a bad one. Whether in the eyes of the law or not, he’s a bad one. It’s been going on for over 30 years. “Inappropriate” is a terrible outcome for a lot who were made to put up with a level of unwelcomeness, shall we say..

His interest seems to have evaporated away, almost like he had some sort of political agenda or something.

None of your business, tbh.


Ahhhh, good old hearsay. 
 

Ive met him, I found him OK till I asked him to do a 5-1 pic. He was pretty rude and abrupt.

I’d be absolutely amazed if they didn’t. I often think that about myself. Worse than me out there though.

Not at all. Never thought there was sufficient in this for a criminal conviction. But have always thought Salmond was a creep and that he’d be one whatever his political affiliations.

My thoughts exactly.

His behaviour has clearly been very far from ideal. Drink has clearly been a significant issue for him. Perhaps even a problem 

 

Sturgeon is going to have to be probed on what had been brought to her attention and when 

 

She also has some questions to answer on what she knew about Derek Mackay and when 

There is no way that the media is subservient to the two people who run the SNP, every major paper and media outlet are owned by supporters of the Union. The reaction of all the media at the court today is testimony to that, all trying to insinuate there was a plot against Salmond by Sturgeon, something fishy going on clearly 🙈.

It’s akin to Rangers fans saying the SFA are against them.

Not really hearsay. And the issues are way more important than a “5-1”.

The issue is that everything has been scrutinised and put through a court of law, he’s been proved not guilty. 
 

If you had evidence, why were you not called by the prosecution?

Utter abomination of a thread. No real surprise to those with an ounce of common sense that he would be found not guilty.

 

The only positive is that Troller John will disappear under his rock for a few months.

Well, it's not really. You are asserting AS is a "bad one" based on something someone told you. That's hearsay.

So you also think those 9 women were lying? Ok. Please don't feel like you should follow up with a reply here, I literally couldn't care less about your thoughts on any matter John.

The jury heard all the evidence and concluded that they didn't believe the 9 women.

You are right. But no amount of legal obfuscation will alter my view -or the views of many others.

To be clear first of all, I have never voted SNP and voted against independence and am no fan of Salmond. However, he has been found not guilty and that is that.

 

On a different note, I have sympathy for the jury. I was on a jury for a rape and abduction case. Even with the benefit of CCTV, the final verdict was 8 v 7. I couldn't believe that we were so close but there you go, we sat and listened to the same statements for 7 days and yet the split was as close as one person. The level of proof that individuals require isn't set in stone, it is just a best effort to decide as honestly as they can.

 

Without any physical evidence, it comes down to he said/she said, and the strict guidance that the judge provides in closing summing up.

 

Every charge needed to be proven individually, you can't just say because so many people complained, then they must be telling the truth. Each one of them had to prove their own case and whilst 9 failed, 1 must have had a more compelling case but again, not enough.

You may call me a coward John, the simple fact is I have nothing to say to you and don't have the time/desire to listen to/respect anything you have to say about anything. You, quite simply put, are not worth a damn. Good evening.

You are losing it. Maybe switch off your computer and take some time off from here. More things in the world to worry about

Pretty distasteful thread, all in all. From the outset. Petty and premature glee at the hoped-for downfall of a politician, with scant regard to the issues involved.

 

It’s the legal equivalent of the Hibs’ fans relegation party at Tynecastle a few years back. Gleeful distribution of party hats during the corteo from Roseburn followed by toys out the pram, tears and snotters, tantrums and recriminations in the aftermath.

It’s actually disgusting that they want someone found guilty because of his politics.

Weird behaviour.

No sir, never a misogynistic word crosses these internet fingers, only the utmost care, concern and respect for women. Never a word about Krankie or Nippy or telling women to pipe doon.

Indeed, when Scottish women protested the inauguration of Donald Trump, he was 100% in support of them, because his only concern . . . is their happiness.

The Americans voted him in if these women arent American its none of their business end of.

 

Rest assured, manalive's concern is for women here, and what should be their equal status to men. That's absolutely why he cares.
