I don't think Sturgeon acted inappropriately either way, but that merely narrow's things down to who was involved, but it doesn't explain why Salmond was targeted, so soon after his public announcement wrt getting involved with Indyref2.Sturgeon wasn't part of the conversation chains and there's nothing to suggest she was part of any conspiracy against him. You seem to be saying she should have treated Salmond differently to any other person with complaints against them, which is pretty dumb.
Complaints were made. Sturgeon ordered an investigation by the appropriate person. That person then completely botched the investigation, resulting in a huge payout to Salmond and contributing to the failed court cases, and contributing to the upcoming legal case by Salmond's.
Sturgeon's failure is not getting shot of Evans after the collapsed review.
What motivated, for example, Woman H to place herself at the dinner table?There was unimpeached evidence to support a position that the alleged victim wasn't at a 4 person dinner where she said the assault occured.
If they couldn't frame the man for rape, the SNP should punish him for misogyny? Alternatively, it would be interesting to see how far a lot of the people Murray referred to get on 'merit', if Salmond chooses not to see the bigger picture, and establishes a new party. Again, alternatively, it would be interesting to see how far a lot of the people Murray referred to get on 'merit', if Salmond chooses to see the bigger picture, and establishes a new organization.Salmond did admit to enough stuff to make it clear he was using his position of power to treat the place as a knocking shop. SNP shouldn't go near letting him back in. Needs to grow up. Head down to a singles bar and see how the human version of Mr Toad does on his own merits without his title to support him. But that doesn't amount to criminal behaviour.
A woman who Alex Salmond is accused of attempting to rape did not attend a dinner at his official residence on the night the incident is alleged to have happened, a witness has claimed.
Woman H has previously told the trial that Mr Salmond "pounced" on her after the dinner and took her clothes off.
Asked by defence lawyer Shelagh McCall QC whether she had seen Woman H at any point that night, Ms Barber replied: "No, I didn't." - BBC
Very good report by Stuart Campbell.
Today a mostly-female jury drawn in its entirety from the most Unionist city in Scotland delivered the only verdict it was credibly possible to reach on the (total absence of) evidence before them:…wingsoverscotland.com
He states that the tactics of the prosecution was to use the odious " Moorov Doctrine ", linked in the text. I am glad it is not part of our law you wouldn't need a Phd. to see how that could be abused...
'But, but, but!' There just has to be a bit more, anything, something, beyond the details necessary to establish his innocence or guilt. You know the Man is lying to you, but you refuse to look beyond the 'black mark against Sturgeon', because the alternative reality is so bizarre in the extreme. As such, a self-evidential and blatant lie appears to have become a comforting truth. The idea that Cold War Military Intelligence tactics are being used by Bureaucrats from London, to influence the make-up of the future leadership of the largest Nationalist Party in Scotland, is both preposterous and frightening. Happens all the time..Evans should have been fired. It's INSANE she was extended. That's the biggest black mark against Sturgeon in all this by far.
Alex Salmond is Not Guilty – His Political Comeback is Assured"I often wondered why Leslie Evans wasn’t sacked, but it didn’t necessarily mean that Nicola Sturgeon approved of her actions. The media always says that she, personally, chose Evans for the role. What they rarely mention is that, I believe, she was chosen by the FM from a short-list provided by the UK Civil Service."
Perhap's that was alway's the ulterior motive? It's difficult to tell from a distance how deep it is, but the rot appears to be in the upper echelon's, so I think Salmond should try and form a Scottish Independence Congress and let the SNP sort itself out. As we know from Irish history and the failure to connect Labour to Republicanism between 1916-1918, failure to develop or form alliances at key junctures, can have long-term repercussions. Ultimately, a SIC should have the nuts and bolts of the Civil Service and its decision-making process under Scottish governorship worked out, as it should also be making a coherent argument in favor of Independence from framed policy documents. The fact that Woman H can't be placed at the dinner table, changes the nature of the accusations from the personal to the political. Effectively, that would mean Bureaucrats are trying to influence and manipulate the logistics of who governs through a smear campaign, which takes the issue beyond gender, civil justice and the pros and cons of Unionist and Nationalist ideology, to a point where the State is attacking the concept of self-government, civil administration and also interfering with the ability of its own citizens to self-regulate or make decisions for themselves. Unionists, I fear, don't fully appreciate what that also means for them, insofar as their support for the Union is incidental, depending of course on the source of the smear. The short-list mentioned above has a London stamp.Sturgeon could be getting cooked if / when Covid-19 passes!
In this case, it would've helped to support the claim with any argument, or a witness, rather than eye-contact, an accidental stroke of the hair, gossip and the “Moorov doctrine.”“It’s important to support your claims with good arguments.”
Two men jailed for raping student in Co DonegalAnd this was even though the decision was reached in another jurisdiction over which nobody in Dublin has any influence anyway.
Did MI5 have any input into all this Political Assassination of Alex Salmond ? ?
Perhaps he knew that some of the other SNP people / leaders are just going through the motions and are not really that interested in Scottish Independence. Perhaps some of them are on the payroll of MI5 ( would that not just be part of MI5’s job ). The idea that MI5 would not be working against Scottish Independence would be very naive.No, and to suggest so is absurd.
He had already lost his seat and left the party by the time this blew up - what would be the point?
No.( would that not just be part of MI5’s job ).
No, it would be very stupid.The idea that MI5 would not be working against Scottish Independence would be very naive.

Whatever else is true or false, he clearly hadn't retired from politics and Woman H can't be placed at the all-important dinner table.
What you're suggesting would require someone to be pulling the strings behind the scenes on behalf of Woman H, unbeknownst to the others, or to Woman H for that matter, whose agenda and motive appears to be personal. However, the failure to place Woman H at the dinner table shifts the motive from the personal to the political. How many people were aware they were being manipulated and blacklisted by the Intelligence Services via Youth Against Racism in Europe? In that case, the treasurer was pulling the strings, but that doesn't mean MI5 were pulling Woman H's strings. It means they are capable of manipulating victims of race hate crimes, criminalizing innocent workers and promoting people they perceive to be favorable to their way of doing things.In a text to another complainer two days after the Record story, H wrote: “I’m mulling too. But I have a plan. And means we can be anonymous but see strong repercussions.”
No. No it really isn't.Surely keeping the British Union as one Entity would be very high up on MI5’s Priorities.
Political parties horrendously damage themselves with alarming regularity all the time.The SNP are doing such a good job on damaging themselves with this that it is naive to believe that some MI5 nudging may not be involved ! !
That was plainly the zionist lobby.No. No it really isn't. Political parties horrendously damage themselves with alarming regularity all the time.
Are five behind the Labour party anti Semitism, self harming fiasco that contributed to their disastrous election? Were five behind the Tory party cash for questions fiasco that contributed to Blairs first landslide?
These things happen to political parties - quite why you need a conspiracy theory to understand them is baffling.
You're turning into a conspiraloon if you think Five would be involved in smearing a currently retired from politics, former leader of the SNP five years after a referendum.So a High Priority of an Inteligence Agency in Britain is not being concerned about keeping what they consider to be their Country Together; Pull the other one. I put bells on it just for you.
One or Two could be in the employ of MI5. Its very naive to believe that MI5 do not have some highly placed people in Scotland in their employ. They would be neglecting their job by not doing so.You're turning into a conspiraloon if you think Five would be involved in smearing a currently retired from politics, former leader of the SNP five years after a referendum.
And the idea of using civilians to do so is possibly the most ridiculous part of your theory - unless of course you are suggesting the women who came forward were all Five staff.
No - If anyone was going to be 'smeared' it would be the current leader or a significant backer or the like. Not the retired one from five years ago that left politics.One or Two could be in the employ of MI5. Its very naive to believe that MI5 do not have some highly placed people in Scotland in their employ. They would be neglecting their job by not doing so.
