    I cannot dumb it down any further.

    In fact, if the court finds in the Scottish government's favour, it will strengthen their hand and weaken Alex Salmond's case.


    Total nonsense because Suzanne does not even know the gender of those that lodged a complaint.
    She is championing the rights and protection of women. Totally acceptable and admirable, just not on this ticket.
    She is proven to be out of kilter on this issue.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-45295578
    So Suzanne is guessing with her conclusions and exploiting the issue to raise her public profile.

    No, what you mean is, you cant provide anything worthwhile to support your argument, so you resort to being condescending.

    I note you still havent responded to the key points she makes the article, which sums up the situation very well and proves that Suzanne has interpreted the situation well.

    I will repeat for you

    1. Alex Salmond is using crowdfunding to signal his power. That’s wrong

    2. The message being sent out is that what happens to women is always less important than the reputation of ‘great’ men

    This is you clutching at straws:
    This is you clutching at more straws:
    Neither of which detract or weaken the key points she made, that you still havent responded to

    Total nonsense. She is exploiting this issue for her own agenda. Which I have said repeatedly, is an acceptable and admirable agenda, just not on this ticket.
    She is unaware of the allegations made against Alex Salmond, including the gender of the complainants, so how can she possibly, reasonably and credibly use these allegations to support her agenda of protecting female complainants?

    Additionally, the crowdfunding is to finance a challenge against the Scottish government's processes and procedures.
    It cannot and will not clear him, or find him guilty of any wrongdoing.

    It is not total nonsense, your lack of an argument highlights that.

    You keep saying she is exploiting this issue for her own agenda, but the article and your assertions dont show that.

    And you still are avoiding answering this:
    1. Alex Salmond is using crowdfunding to signal his power. That’s wrong

    2. The message being sent out is that what happens to women is always less important than the reputation of ‘great’ men


    Yes Suzanne says that in the article.

    The article does not say it will. It says why should a rich man need crowdfunding to clear his name. Not the same thing.

    Her obvious lack of understanding and unsupported assumptions illustrate exactly that, she is exploiting this issue for her own agenda. This issue is completely unrepresentative of her agenda. But she pretends it is another typical case. It is not, and she has no knowledge of it to claim it is.

    Is he?

    Is it?


    Then your second sentence is totally unrelated to your first.
    Allow me to explain that to you:
    "The article does not say it will clear him of any wrongdoing". OK, I will accept that without bothering to check its veracity.
    "It says why should a rich man need crowdfunding to clear his name. " A completely unrelated comment to the statement above.
    If it will not clear his name, then he is not crowdfunding, in order to clear his name.
    Then the question about why should crowdfunding be used to clear one's reputation is purely hypothetical and unrelated to this issue.

    You keep saying that, but have nothing to back it up.

    Clearly she does understand it.

    So you claim to support your argument. The article doesnt confirm or prove that.



    I see, so you are unable to venture any opinion.

    Certainly this isnt the only media article that sees it that way.

    I wonder what opinion you would have if it was a conservative MP.

    Do you not think the crowdfunding could make it more difficult for women in the future?
