Bomb Plotters Guilty
The news wires have just reported that the two men charged with sending parcel bombs through the post - to the Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two other high-profile fans - have been found guilty.
A good thing too I say - because what a farce the trial had become - as some witnesses tried to withdraw previous written statements given to the police.
While the two accused men - Trevor Muirhead and Neil McKenzie - did their best to give the impression that they couldn't spell the word 'bomb' - never mind build one.
Dumb and Dumber will be sentenced at a later date - but the jury took only a very short time to see through their tissue of lies.
Pity the same couldn't be said for the men's defence team - Gordon Jackson QC and Donald Findlay QC - two of the most expensive lawyers money can buy in Scotland.
Quite why the public purse has to shell out so much money to defend these two idiots - who probably have difficulty tying their shoelaces - is beyond me.
But while they are both idiots - and deserve some pity on score - they are both vile and dangerous idiots nonetheless - who deserve to be severely punished for their hate-filled, sectarian crimes.
