Further to the thread I posted on Tuesday ( after reporting restrictions were lifted on the ongoing trial), TUV councillor David Tweed has been suspended from the party. The party is keen to emphasise thatbthisnis standard policy for any member accused of a crown offence.

Mr Teeedy has been accused of abusing 2 young girls over an 8 year period,none of whom testified today that she had kept notes over the period of her abuse.

As of yet, I cannot find the reason why the judge granted/enforced a reporting ban up until this Tuesday but I'd be intrigued to know on what gtounds.

What relevance is there to the fact that he is a "TUV Councillor"?

As much as I dislike the sectarian bigot he should not have been named until he is found guilty.

Well, the man had no issue with spouting off unfounded nonsense, including blaming Michael Mc Ilveen's catholic upbringing for his death. Google it. The man is disgusting.

If he is found guilty. In cases where the procecution witnesses (i.e. the alleged victims) are not named, the dedendant should not be named. There should be level playing fields.

Not wishing to be flippant but that lad was murdered because he was a Catholic so Tweed has a point.

I said to Google it

"The family of murdered Ballymena teenager Michael McIlveen have expressed concern at comments made by a DUP councillor at a council meeting.

The DUP’s Davy Tweed had said he “questioned the upbringing” of 15-year-old Michael who died last month, a day after an attack in Ballymena which police have said was sectarian.

Mr Tweed also claimed “people associated with the family” had since intimidated Protestants in the town and that Protestant students were scared to go to school and in some cases had been told “they’ll be taken off the school bus and have their throats cut”.

That's why I used the words 'sectarian bigot'.

Is it true that he has a sister who married a Catholic? If so, does anyone know how he behaved towards that sister?

Teedy sounds a nasty piece of work politically. As far as I know he has not yet been found guilty of sexual abuse and that is important because the crime carries such a stigma that if he is innocent there may be some who will think there is no smoke without fire.

Could there be a connection between political headbangery and touching children or other sexual perversions? I think there might.

Interesting that Tweed also obtained a reporting ban on the same charge some years ago. a charge he was found innocent of.
