Thanks to reader, Anonymous, for pointing this out.
On the main page, photographed and with SNP headlined:
and with SNP repeated:
Former SNP MP Natalie McGarry is to appeal her conviction for embezzlement.
The ex-Glasgow East representative is serving a two-year sentence after being found guilty of stealing £19,974 while treasurer of Women For Independence.
She was also convicted of taking £4,661 while treasurer and convener of the SNP’s Glasgow Regional Association.
A judge has now granted permission for the Court of Criminal Appeal to hear arguments that McGarry’s conviction should be quashed.
The appeal will coincide with a separate legal challenge against her two-year prison sentence.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-63975257
but for Conservative Council Leader Andrew Poulson, no photograph and no party identifier:
and with a delayed Tory accreditation:
A former Scottish council leader has been accused of a £186,500 romance fraud.
East Dunbartonshire councillor Andrew Polson, 50, is alleged to have “induced” a 60-year-old woman into transferring him money to buy two houses.
Prosecutors claim he committed fraud knowing both properties were bought solely in his name.
Mr Polson made no plea at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
He allegedly pretended he was buying a house in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, and another in Bearsden, East Dunbartonshire, with the woman as “joint owner”.
The councillor, who was suspended by the Scottish Conservative party in June, is said to have “induced” her into transferring him money at a bank in Rutherglen, Lanarkshire.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-63959015
It’s not a one of. See this from February 2021:
Conservative councillor Alan Donnelly (bottom, wee, once) was found guilty of sexual assault in 2019, fined and placed on the sex offenders register.
Alex Salmond (top, big, three times) is not guilty of any offences, of any kind.
Donnelly refused to resign, collected his salary and expenses for two years and has vowed to stand again for election.
There’s an easy headline but not one BBC Scotland would construct for a Tory. Now if they had an SNP politician who had not actually laid hands on anyone, had been accused of no crime, but had messaged a 16 year-old boy?
Salmond resigned and has made no such vow to return.
Donnelly was only suspended by his Party for one year until March 4th 2021.
