The Police Spying scandal just drags on and on.
But they won't.
I can assure you right here and now that:
1. Detective Superintendent David Donaldson will never see the inside of a court room.
2. Detective Inspector Joanne Grant will never see the inside of a court room.
3. Detective Superintendent Brenda Smith will never see the inside of a court room.
4. Chief Superintendent Clark Cuzen will never see the inside of a court room.
Before it's all over the above names may change.
Other names may get added to the list as other officers get smoked out when the heat intensifies.
Some will spill the beans on each other.
Some will squeal like pigs and entirely blame others in an attempt to save their own skin.
None of this will matter though.
Because when this game of musical chairs ends and the music stops, not one of them will be sitting in a chair in the dock facing criminal charges. Not one.
Not only do officers of untrustworthy Police Scotland think they are above the law, they think they are the law.
And that's why when the face-saving blame game is over and we've spent hundreds of thousands of pounds of public money investigating in to all of this, none of them will ever be held accountable.
