  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Tommy Sheridan by Ken Dunn on 26 December 2010 5:23am
I think the sentence on Tommy Sheridan should be lenient because The News of the World sets up its own scams to create news. If they had the approval of the police before their actions then I might think different.

Tommy Sheridan has been given a 3-year jail term for perjuring himself in his action for defamation against News Of The World.
Is this reasonable? --I don't know.
I haven't really followed the case so I don't understand the severity of the Judge's sentence.

Perjury is a serious offence but this case is a curious one. Some of the witnesses in the perjury trial may now face charges of perjury !
It does seem that the full force of the establishment was brought down on this man and his sentence of 3 years will bebar him from future public office.
