Retired Sheriff Kevin Drummond QC is the latest to lend his reputation to the strange bedfellows leaping to join the attack on the First Minister with more than a bit of melodrama in his words, above.
Let me say, I don’t know what happened but some folk seem convinced, from Stuart Campbell to George Galloway, a cluster of guys (only?) seem in little doubt.
Not really knowing, not really being legal-savvy, I find myself looking at the kind of guys piling in here. There are some I’ve admired, Craig Murray for one, and others, George Galloway for another, of whom I’d worry if they ever supported me.
The above sheriff is another creeping from the skirting boards. I knew I’d seen his name before. Have a look at these:
Sheriff Drummond opposes increased powers for animal welfare charity. A RETIRED judge who once reportedly told a former police officer concerned about soft sentences given to those convicted of wildlife crime to “get a life” – has launched a blistering attack on proposals currently being considered by the Scottish Government to give more wildlife crime detection powers to the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA).
A group which campaigns for victims of child abuse have attacked a Scottish sheriff’s decision to give a teacher guilty of indecent exposure an absolute discharge. Helen Holland of the In Care Abuse Survivors Scotland (INCAS) said it was “disgusting” that Gordon Cruden was not adequately punished for the offences at the elite Merchiston Castle school in Edinburgh.
