    I don't think you are his type 😉

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    I have a few mates who know him well, and based on their tales of what he says and does (especially on nights out) it is little surprise that he never seems far from bother.

    Saying that though, he always seems to be deemed guilty until proven innocent which isn't a healthy state of affairs.

    Has he ever been found guilty?

    Seems like the edgy type who pushes the boundaries a bit with a drink in him. Sexual offence is becoming an increasingly broader term though.

    As usual, headlines and no real details into the matter.

    I'm assuming the lack of details are due to the fact proceedings are now active and there will be attendant reporting restrictions.

    As somebody else has pointed out, he definitely had something of a 'reputation' back in the day. But you're right, he's never actually been convicted of any sexual offence. IIRC the charges were dropped in the case which effectively destroyed his career some 15 years ago, while there have been further allegations since (the most recent of which I think was ultimately found 'not proven').

    On an unrelated note he certainly comes from a big Hibby family. I recall sitting near him, his brother and his dad at a few Hibs games down the years plus I remember when he used to be the goalkeeper for London Hibs in the supporters league down there (does that league still exist?). He also wore a Hands Off Hibs T shirt on an episode of Blue Peter at the time of the Mercer saga.

    A quote from the Thick Of It ..
    Who was it that did your media training, Myra Hindley? Its terrible! All these hands all over the place. You were like a sweaty octopus trying to unhook a bra. It was like watching John Leslie at work.

    I wonder if the 11 years gap between the alleged offence and accusation will have an effect on any possible trial?

    Id have thought after 11 years it would boil down to his word v the accuser. Although in saying that the Saville, Cosby & Weinstein charges show that it is possible to successfully prosecute after a long time after the fact.

    Think most of Savilles convictions were after he passed away
