Don't you think Alex Salmond should have been remanded in custody given the gravity of the charges against him?

Anyone else charged with that many offences would be awaiting trial in jail.

    One has to wonder why all these cases are being presented in one go, many years after they allegedly happened, just before a general election.

     Almost as if it is a deliberate slur - the timing is just impeccable.

    Even if he is cleared on all counts it will have put him out of the running, and I believe that is why is is happening now.

    Many of these cases seem to be legitimate adult relationships. All seemed able to leave voluntarily at any point, yet they did not.

     I would have hoped that the very first woman claiming rape should have gone to the police immediately she was able, and not waited for another 10 to line up behind her first.

     Something just doesn't add up - and it's the timing!

    No. If he really tried it on with Nicola Sturgeon he is a national phenomenon, and he should sell tickets to give public talks about it. Must have been very drunk at the time.

    Since he has no previous convictions for such offences, and he denies them, it would be unusual for him to be refused bail. There is no suggestion that any of the prosecution lawyers opposed bail. I would imagine his bail conditions involve strict conditions about where he lives and who he contacts.

    I don’t think other people with a clean record denying such charges would necessarily be refused bail.

      He’s not an MP. You have no understanding of the law and how bail is applied.

    You'd send everyone to prison if you had the chance.

    It's best to leave him in his own house, he can't do harm there if he is overtaken by the insatiable desire to spawn again.

    He is probably less danger than Prince Andrew and half the Tory MP's

    Yes I do, but he's part of the Establishment so it won't happen. Absolute disgrace that he's allowed to roam free smirking at reporters.

    He should face life imprisonment without possibility of parole for being part of an organisation that seeks to impose and accelerate many life-threatening, very destructive, degrading and atrocious qualities and conditions. He deserves to face a firing squad.

    If he is indeed guilty of sexual violence, it does nothing to reduce his morality level, because it cannot sink any lower.
