"Police said the move was suggested by the Crown Prosecution Service but the CPS denied this."

I'm inclined to agree with the CPS. It's not as if the police don't have form in this sort of thing after all, is it?
The award-winning journalist set up hidden cameras that captured Dr Colin Ferrie snorting cocaine and an illegal party drug.
But despite the reporter handing the footage over to detectives and offering to help with their case, West Yorkshire Police last week called him in for questioning as a suspect.
He was interviewed under caution at a police station on suspicion of voyeurism and supplying drugs, and even asked if he had made the secret film for his own sexual gratification.
I can see why the police ran scared of someone with the potential for waving the race card, but I can't see why a Scottish pediatrician should get this level of protective harassment of a journalist.

Can anyone else?

No longer content to look at shameful plod actions in isolation, I take a broader view and lobby where I can, for the dissolution of a public 'service' which is clearly unfit for purpose. We need to start planning for a post-police Britain and sterilising all central and local government machinery which has been infiltrated and contaminated over decades, by greed and systematic corruption.

Freemasonry, Common Purpose or whatever else you want to call being "connected".

They asked him if he filmed this for his own sexual gratification? Yet Stinson 'Peadophile' Hunter spends hours on the internet pretending to be a thirteen year old girl and some people think he's a hero.

There's a disturbing trend in Scotland which is slowly coming to light. That is, there are too many murky rumours going around about procurement of minors for the use of grandees. Not just football clubs but the scout movement are rumoured to be involved. Much murk surfaced after the Dunblane shooting. Maybe it is just spiteful mud-slinging, maybe there is more to it than that, but I can't help looking at news from Scotland in a skewed way.

Prosecute the messenger. An improvement on shooting one I suppose.

Is Freemasonry such a big thing, these days?

"Yet Stinson 'Peadophile' Hunter spends hours on the internet pretending to be a thirteen year old girl and some people think he's a hero."

Good point! I wonder if he's ever even been questioned?

"Much murk surfaced after the Dunblane shooting."

Maybe in a hundred years time, we'll know what...
