Update To The Last Post

After I had written and published the last blog post about Police Scotland hiring a top QC to represent them, there was something inside of me that thought I'd heard that name somewhere before.

Upon a wee bit of further investigation it clicked.

This isn't the first time Jeremy Johnson QC has worked for the police. He has worked for police before - on the Hillsborough and Birmingham pub bombing.

From what I gather, he's a very well respected, honest and wholly capable QC. It's no wonder Police Scotland were keen to hire him to represent them.

Oh, and he's also extremely experienced at representing lying, corrupt cops as we saw from his defence of West Midlands Police over Hillsborough.

But I'm sure that had nothing to do with Police Scotland choosing him...
