I haven’t really talked that much about the Alex Salmond case but saw this tweet today from Craig Murray after the Scottish Government case collapsed.
I think there has been a total witch hunt against Alex Salmond in the media and I do think the SNP have form in hanging people out to dry. Michelle Thomson, Alex Salmond, and Grouse Beater in my opinion were wrongly found guilty before any investigation or case was held.
Know I don’t understand why the allegations regarding Alex Salmond are taking so long to investigate and like the Michelle Thomson case it does start to feel like a witch hunt. It also does look like Lesley Evans the Permanent Secretary to the Scottish Government should resign as her job has become untenable.
If Craig is correct, and there are emails that show a political witch hunt, then they should be released. When I think back to the Thomson case the investigation took forever, she was smeared all over the media, hammered by yoons in the Parliament and then found innocent. At that point her political career was over, the SNP looked weak and unsupportive of their own members and this smacks of the same.
The longer the Police take to reach a decision, it starts to feel weird and Alex Salmond will be ruined if it turns out he is innocent. If there is a case to answer then anyone has to face the consequences of the law but, and I don’t think of myself as a conspiracy theorist, this case just smells.
