Tommy Sheridan found guilty
Tommy Sheridan the former Scottish Socialist Party MSP has been found guilty at his trial in Edinburgh.
The News of the World made a series of sex allegations against him.
Tommy sued successfully but has now been found guilty of perjury.
The Sheridan affair smashed the Scottish Socialist Party, the first successful non Labour socialist Party in the UK, since Commonwealth in the 1940s.
I have long thought the whole thing smelt of MI5 but I must admit I was sceptical of Tommmy in this.
The Scottish Socialist Party would never have been succesful without Tommy but reliance on one charasmatic leader is always dangerous.
Rupert Murdoch's grip on everything is stronger......a very sad affair.
Hope Greens, Scottish Socialists and Solidarity can work together but doubt this will happen.
