Better own up to my letter in The Herald. The last (third) paragraph is why I think it’s worth sticking my head above the parapet. Exceptional case or no, it would not have been the right precedent to set.

Just back from visiting the parents. Yes, well done with the letter, Gavin. I too think it would be better if such decisions were handled by judges, it's only a matter of time or bad luck, before we get a justice secretary who wants to subordinate justice to political advantage. It's a pity this case couldn't be used as a springboard to do that, but with Tavish Scott and Iain Gray out to score points, it's unlikely that something sensible will happen.
