(** moderator edit - topic split from Shetland MSP thread **)

 

And let us not forget, as some appear to have done, those political leaders who have an actual proven record of sexual misconduct. I'm not saying Salmond is innocent, but I do believe in "until proven guilty".

^Very much agreed, innocent until proven, Roachmill. Having said that, it must be remembered what Cyril Smith, M.P for the Liberal Party, was claimed to be up to. Lord David Steel believed that he was guilty.

 

Lord Steel says he believed Cyril Smith abuse claims but did not act

Maybe Salmond is innocent George, is he still crowdfunding? Now the has the half million I would have thought he could give some back.

^I don't know if Alex Salmond is still crowdfunding, Claadehol. If I wanted to know, I'd go and find out.

I was just raising a question of interest George, perhaps he'll read this and get in touch. Failing that I'll try not to let it prey on my mind. I'm happy to see you are unconcerned.

^^No doubt you were. Cyral Smith, long time M.P for the Liberal Party, beleveded by many to be an active sex offender. When, or if, you vote rememeber to stand proud.

Now! Now! George!  We can't do much about Cyril now can we? We can only hope he is feeling the heat where he wound up!

I am more concerned with the present, and holding our leaders and officials to account when they're still in the land of the living.

How many politicians facing serious charges have successfully persuaded the public to pay for their "top of the tree" lawyers? 

I was only suggesting that having screwed the SNP for half a million, maybe he could repay some money to his gullible and misguided followers.

What's morally wrong with that George?

^No, with Cyril all we can do is remember and hope that nothing like that happens again Claadehol. As to Alex, he may not be perfect but he was found to be not guilty. Didn't strip us bare like Tharcher did when her son ended up in jail abroad. She took the money off the people, it's claimed that Cyril did a bit of the naughty stuff. Alex Salmond was found to be not gulilty. He didn't strip the country bare and he was found to be not guilty.

 
There's nothing morally wrong with Salmond and his ilk, as far as I can see anyway.
 
Perhaps you can prove me wrong?

Check your facts here George. Alex Salmond won a judicial review because of the incompetence of Leslie Evans, permanent secretary to the Scottish government, and the behind the scenes meetings held by our Nicola and Leslie with Alex Salmond. This botched investigation by ministers is what has cost the taxpayer a fortune, total could be £630,000 it seems, so far!

 

You say he has been found not guilty!

 

His trial will only take place early in 2020 and he is facing multiple charges.

I guess not if its morally okay to be a narcissist with despotic tendencies who cons a country in to keeping their personal gravy train running.

 

I wouldn't know, as I've been advised my morals are questionable even on a good day. I just can't stand the man, he's all gob and no trousers, and comes over as somebody you wouldn't consider doing business with if he was peddling pre-loved motors.

It has already been pointed out this is untrue, why do you persist in saying this?

Almost correct the judicial review was won due to Leslie Evans seeming bias. Nothing to do with meetings with Nicola Sturgeon.

Not sure if it was incompetence but seems strange that Evans ignored the investigation procedure that she wrote in tandem with head of HR who's name escapes me at the moment.
