The BBC film on Tommy Sheridan case
There are two days remaining on bbc iplayer to view the bbc programme about the rise and fall of Tommy Sheridan here is a link http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xp4ps
Many questions remain unanswered. For example the George McNeilage, tape that was to provide vital evidence against Tommy, was it a fake? It is likely it was and earned McNeilage two hundred grand from the News Of The World.
Also why did the SSP meeting in which Tommy was believed to admit to his mistakes, was recorded in writing? Everything should have been done off the record.
Instead factions like the United Left in the Scottish Socialist Party became known as "Tommy Haters."
I hope those who have spoken to the media, or colluded with the NOTW enjoy their pieces of silver, Aye Right! the former comrades who testified against Tommy deserve to be held to account. They are a disgrace to the campaign for a Socialist Republic.
The future of Scottish Socialism may be seen in doubt, but instead those of us Scottish Republicans who believe firstly we must secure Scottish Independence, represent the best hope for a Workers Republic in future times.
Egos and jealously that have surrounded the actions of former comrades in the SSP will be their ultimate undoing.
