It’s official – the future is orange

The Herald, the Scotsman  and the Record confirm what has been suspected for some time.

Tommy Sheridan will be represented by Donald Findlay QC.

Gail will be represented by Paul McBride QC (described by the Record as a "former linesman", although fairer to say bloody good defence counsel).

Other reports come from the Telegraph  and the Times (both describing Tomster as a socialist "firebrand" (TM) ); the FT; the Sun; the Guardian; the Indy; the Mail; and the IHT.

 

Best incidental comment comes from the Times

"While in the Big Brother house he befriended Verne Troyer, the Hollywood actor who suffers from dwarfism, and Coolio, the US rapper known for his sexist lyrics. Mr Sheridan later said that he hoped to keep in touch with “his men”. "

STV has video coverage of the press conference and for a limited time the Tomster’s appearance yesterday on STV’s laughably inept magazine show (starts about 1 minute 45 seconds – in still it’s not Alan Titchmarsh so be thankful for small mercies).  Tommy described himself as a "trainee lawyer" which somewhat overstates his position.  

The saga continues and we’ll be there every step of the way.

    Because it sound more Working Class than “law student”?

    I fear that Donald’s membership of the Lemon Lodge may surface before the proceedings. If you haven’t heard of the Lemon Lodge it’s like the orange Lodge but more bitter.
