Got to feel sorry for those women who were assaulted. There are folk actively celebrating this creep getting away with a crime he admitted to simply because of what political party he represented. 

A sad, sad day.

He might have fooled the judge and jury but he's still a snaggy B'stard.

Its quite frightening that he managed to get away with the #lad alibi. Once the Corona AIDS has been sorted I can see some big questions having to be answered by all involved, the 'Not working alone with the FM' guideline is quite damning. Really not wanting to turn this into a political thing, its just another example of a bloke who wants to use his position of power for his own sexual gratification.

The jury from No voting Edinburgh included 9 women. They heard evidence that you and I did not hear fully in the press. I smelt stitch up as soon as the prosecution was announced, with the security services working in the background and with their people on the ground. Mi5 and Mi6 have to earn their wages somehow dont they?

Jesus wept.

He was found not guilty in court with a majority woman jury and a female judge (IIRC) - they heard various evidence over the course of the trial, including from witnesses that claimed events did not happen and people claimed to be present were not there. The accusers were also found to be colluding with one another on whatsapp - something that undoubtedly did not do their case any good.

But folk on here still say he's guilty. 🙄

I'm very surprised the man got a fair trial given the amount of shyte and speculation both in the press and people personal social media accounts.

The man is finished politically, and serious questions will now need to be asked of Leslie Evans, and the procurator fiscal.

Hurrah, he's just a sleazy fecker and not a rapey fecker. Well that's nice.

He is guilty, he admited it.

So you believe there's a 'stitch up' to the majority views of a rendomly-selected jury, largely female, to produce several 'not guilty' verdicts & one 'not proven', after they sat for 2 weeks hearing all the evidence & witness statements, and not the media versions of it? I wonder who would be behind that & how they'd have carried it out?

He didn't admit guilt to any one of the charges. He wouldn't have been on trial if he had.

 

I fully appreciate the level of dislike/hatered for the guy, and not just from unionists, and clearly his behaviour, towards female staff in particular, over those years has been well short of what's required in the position he held....but his personality wasn't on trial, his compliance with the law was. I thought, given how closely his case followed on from Weinstein's, that he'd be crucified by the media....perhaps the rapid growth of Covid19 spared him some of that, but again, the 12 jurors made their decisions based on the evidence, not on heresay.

I'm sure the various subsequent investigations will be interesting & equally as controversial.

For the CPS to bring 13 charges and for all to fail is a massive slap in the face for the judiciary system, heads will roll. The do Gooders are already calling for an investigation of the witch hunt against him despite it being stated that his behaviour towards women was poor. No thought by these individuals as to the well being of the women let down by our so called justice system.

Well said Huggs.

My original post was more in relation to the rights and wrongs of Scots Law and the pantomime (not forgetting the cost!!) of bringing this case to court in the first place, if that amount of charges was not going to bring a conviction. 

It is, to me, somewhat bewildering that so many charges, so many witnesses, and so many women who worked within Bute House and elsewhere with AS 'appear' to have been perjuring themselves if not a single charge 'stuck' and the man walked free.

I wonder what the 'me too' movement make of all of this?
