In another update to my previous post, Neil Findlay MSP isn't too happy with how the Justice Committee's meeting with Scotland's top cop Phil 'Gormless' went.
The member of the Scottish Parliament had already written to the chief constable and asked him to come clean about his involvement with the notorious Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) which we know he was in charge of (they were the infamous policemen who infiltrated protest groups and had sex with members just to gain intelligence)
The chief constable failed to respond and answer Neil Findlay's letter.
So next, the MSP asked Christine Grahame to put these questions to him at the Justice Committee meeting.
She refused to do so.
So if you want to ask Phil Gormley how he's enjoying his new Scottish life living in his castle in Tulliallan or if he enjoys going grouse shooting wearing a kilt that's fine. You can even ask him if he likes Scottish tablet flavoured ice-cream (which is yummy by the way).
But whatever you do don't ask him about any illegal activities that he and his officers have been involved with.
Not that it would have made any difference anyway. Because he would've just given the same old Police Scotland stock answer - which is "mistakes were made but lessons have been learned" <yawn>
