John Leslie

So after all the hype of the last 10 months, John Leslie is a free man. He’s also, once he sells his story to the press and TV, going to be a rich man – again. However he will forever be tainted with the allegations that were made.

In all other crimes, suspects are named so is there really a case for anonymity? Yes. British justice is based on ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Yet Leslie has been branded guilty since day one and in cases of rape or sexual assault the accuser has anonymity. Its time the accused has this protection also. And the role of the tabloid media should also be examined as Leslie was tried by them before the case was near any court.

Webs Favourite Colour

Webs favourite colour is a site trying to find the….well….webs favourite colour (thankfully spelling colour correctly although the fact that I’ve mentioned the spelling of a word will mean I’ll now spell something wrong). At the moment with just under a 1000 photo’s logged the favourite colour is a dirty green(well I think it is). Better than beige though.

Gordon Jackson

Gordon Jackson is the MSP for Govan and also a QC. It was revealed today that he earned £163k via legal aid last year – more can be read here. This is on top of his �50k he earns as an MSP. I really cannot understand how he can be committed to both jobs, or give enough time to his local constituents. It is no wonder the majority of the public have been turned off by the Scottish parliament when you have part time MSP’s earning million dollar salaries.

Its time to allow only full time MP’s and MSP’s. They should not be allowed to hold other roles, especially considering the salaries they pull in and they also should be banned from sitting on the boards of companies – surely that is compromising their position as an MP?

A List Apart

A List Apart is a really nice site for website builders. Article on blog writing is a good read and highlights all the flaws with this site!
