What? Jim Sillars, what a guy...

I urge you to check Radio 4 PM...Eddie Mair talking to Jim Sillars...about 40 minutes in...Jim is proposing to have Blair tried for murder (agressive war) in Scotland..

Update, only article I could find, thanks Scroblene

You're right Lilith!

I could'nt really believe what I was hearing - especially when he said 'Murder', just like Taggart used to!

BTW, going back a couple of topics, I tried to post this in reply to a string on demos, but pressed the wrong keys, and lost everything...three times!

In spring 1968, we were all having a few drinks in The Barley Mow, Duke Street, off Oxford St, and, as we emerged blinking into the sunshine, found our car in danger of being roped off by the police.

We just got away in time, but realised much later what the fuss was all about.

The link explains all!

Yes I love the scottish "murder" pronounciation! Like "curly wurly"....excellent.

Can't find anything about this on the web, inspite of Jim having a press conference on it yesterday...

Yes, I am glad I wasn't there in 1988..

Thank you Scroblene, I had just found that...after about 10 mins of searching....D notice? Journos not interested?

Interesting. In all honesy I'm surprised he hasn't been shot already. I suspect that all the extra Government security isn't with Islamo-facism in mind, but has more to do with a fear of what our own people might do.

Red hat - no knickers is actually my Auntie Monica, thank goodness hats ended except for sun ones.
But apart from that the link denies it's existence. What did he say?
Bring back the art of precis.

Sorry to be short on detail HG.

Mr Sillars says that he presented the lord advocate with a 16 page document asking him to use his discretion based on what is contained in said document to prosecute Bliar for murder.

This is because there is evidence that our Ambassador to Washington agreed that Britain was after regime change in 2002, proving that Bliar conspired to wage "agressive war". Due to some precedent or other, under scottish law, aggressive war = murder.

So our Jim thinks he can be done for conspiracy to wage aggressive war and waging aggressive war. He seemed quite confident :-)

Do you honestly think there is mileage in this ?

Slippery as a snake in a vat of KY is our PM.

No hat, no knickers - me.

hatfield girl said...

I meant to say auntie M too, sorry Mr R.

Hats sending messages, a lost language.

Lilith said...

E-K ...interesting metaphor...;-)

English journos don't seem to think so. I am astonished that the bbc dont have it ANYWHERE...

Big straw hat, almost no knickers...

I didn't realise Jim Sillars was still alive. I think he divorced Margo Macdonald didn't he?

The justice system is more than capable of saving Tony's arse I'm afraid.

I quite like the scouser pronunciation of murder.

Lilith said...

The newspaper says his wife Margo is supporting him...
