Hopefully its to shut his cakehole and get on with fighting for independence.
I can’t see the snp taking him back. He’d easily put 10% on another Indy list party which would equate to around 15 seats. I can’t see him getting back involved though.

Wrong. It is indisputable though when Anas Sanwar said "Yet even the most ardent SNP supporter must recognise the women who complained were let down by the Government and that half a million pounds was wasted defending the indefensible in court."

I've not seen anywhere where anyone has said the women were not let down. To be honest while the torys waste billions and Labour let it go almost unnoticed I don't really give a shit about half a million.

To try and put that sort of money into something that's more easily understood.

500,000 seconds is nearly 6 days.

1 billion seconds is more the 31 and a half years! How many billions have the torys squandered or squirrelled away while Keir Starmer plays the nodding dog?

Daft response. Though by anyone's standards an admission that they made an arse of it at least. Calling out myself of all people about Sir Starmers response and acquiescence highlights that you don't really do irony Jack.

I was putting £500,000 in context.

In Holyrood its a whale in a bucket while billions at Westminster barely cause a ripple in the ocean.

Seems that was one of the points you and the opposition in Holyrood were making.

£500,000 of public money in an attempt to kill off any political comeback by your predecessor is a lot of money.

If this was Boris Johnson doing this In a court battle with Theresa May you would rightly be going tonto.

Yes, that Westminster lot have blown far more in their incompetence, corruption and deceit. However, I thought that the entire purpose of the SNP was to offer an alternative to the corrupt stench of the status quo?

Our crown office is working on the instructions of the Scottish Government. It isn't independent. It stinks. And it's not the folk I want to move us forward....

500 grand is nothing in the scheme of things. Anyone hitching their grievance to that horse can’t be taken seriously

As an ardent SNP supporter do you agree with what Sanwar, of whom I am no fan, said....
"Yet even the most ardent SNP supporter must recognise the women who complained were let down by the government and that half a million pounds was wasted defending the indefensible in court."

There should no airbrushing of this by any honest Nationalist worth their salt.

genuine question big fella.
How were the women let down by the goverment? The procurator fiscal decided their was enough evidence to charge AS , a jury were not convinced of his guilt , and acquitted him. I can't recall any evidence from the government which was favourable to his case.
From my confused position, NS seems accused of trying to cover up for him, and also carrying out a witch hunt against him. What am I missing? If can't be both.

But taking on a private citizen, running up costs like that in the hope you’ll break him or he’ll run out of money when you’re the government and you’ve got a bottomless pit, that’s shithousery.

the case they were defending was always unstateable. And the cost for government is probably the same again as the 500k was just Salmonds legal costs.

Nothing has been learned from this, it’s being celebrated as a Victory by Sturgeon. She would do it all again.

The women were let down by the initial government investigation, and by having their complaints referred to the police against their explicit wishes.

Spot on Bobby. Splendid and refreshing to have a couple of Nationalists on here, like yourself, my good friend mike t and few others who do not slavishly toe the SNP Party line without criticism.
