Tommy Sheridan found guilty of perjury
Forgive the Xmas spirits, is this the chap who wants to ban airguns in scotland?
An aside I know, but this was his payback for taking on maybe the more repugnant Rupert Murdoch and one of his rags.
No, this was his payback for lying in court - a criminal offence.
Any payback from the newspaper - a civil matter - is yet to come...............
UNLUCKY Tommy! Hope that sounded sincere.
The galling thing is how much we had to pay to find him guilty
3 years,What a Bummerhe cant own or use a airgun
Mrs Sheridan then gave her reaction to her husband's sentence.
"The real reason why he has been imprisoned today is because he has fought injustice and inequality with every beat of his heart."
Blimey, I didn't realise that was a criminal offence...
Mind you, reading the judge's comments, he sounds like the secretary of Sheridan's fan club
just read the article in the link, and I just thought he was a politician who lied and bullied and blustered and got caught out. At least he will also be barred from public office now, lets hope the rest of the SMP's ditch the draconian measures this guy was trying to force through.
So he's on a par with Mandella,Ghandi,William Penn, Martin Luther King jnr, The Dalai Lama? ......I don't think so ...though her loyalty is touching
One down, 129 to go ( in Scotland). Many more in England (was Britain).
At least there are many sturdy lamposts in Whitehall and Parliament Square. They can support even the lardiest of MPs.
