I have not been able to post on Robert Greens blog for about 6 months, and because I am not a computer expert I have no idea why. I know its not Robert stopping me, because I am communicating with him but someone is doing something.
I have just read his latest blog post, day 2 of his ridiculous trial, for "being disorderly in a public place." Robert was actually handing out leaflets in a very orderly and gentlemanly manner.
This is his blog post. I am so furious, the legal team has let him down.
NAME AND SHAME THEM ROBERT!

Day Two In Court
I arrived early at court today for a meeting with my legal team and received some unexpected news. They advised me that, having looked at all the evidence, I should plead guilty. I then told them that I had no intention of changing my not guilty plea, which left them no alternative but to stand down. We left on good terms and I thank them for their efforts.
In the courtroom, where the Crown was represented by Anne Currie, the Sheriff adjourned the trial until Monday 21st November to allow me the opportunity to assemble a new legal team.

Hmmm, did your legal team not review 'all the evidence' prior to the trial commencing? Regards,

Of course they did Rusty! I cannot imagine what is going through Robert's head.
@Ian Evans, that is a beautiful quote.

Imagine...The Formula One racecars jockey for position on qualifying day to see who will qualify on 'pole position' for the start of the race the next day.
The race cars are kept locked away by the race stewards in 'Parc Ferme' overnight in preparation for the race proper the next day.
Imaging now that the Formula one car that qualified on 'pole position' at the front of the field, when the driver went to collect it from 'Parc Ferme' from the race stewards, he found that the car had no wheels, no steering wheel, and he had no racing helmet.
Confused and stunned by this apparent blatent unfairness, he walks to the pits to tell his team-mates, only to find that they have been told to go home...
Those in the know say that the Formula One Governing Rules are akin to hitting a moving target and that as they change so often tend to be interpreted to a widely different effect to suit the circumstance of the party's will.

I refer you back to the comments I made on June 6th when Donald Findlay was replaced with Frances McMenamin QC.
Is it possible for you to post exactly why your 'excellent legal team' have dropped the case?
November 15, 2011 7:50 PM
Well, well, so the 'long and winding road' of the defence of 'freedom of the press' has led Robert Green up, and dropped him off, at a dead end...
Well at least we have been spared the sight of these lawyer b******s spending the next few years riding some sort of legal gravy train round the Highlands, whilst Robert Green and Hollie Greig are hung out to dry in some sort of 'limbo of justice.'
Look, it's painfully simple Robert: even though you are dealing with the Scottish justice system here -- it is NOT a crime in Scotland, or any other bloody place, to make a statement about a person, or persons in public...as long as that statement is true.
If you want to win this case, you MUST prove in court that any statements you have made about certain persons are true.
And to do this, you MUST call Hollie Greig AND any other witnesses to testify in court. It IS most certainly the time, and it IS most certainly the place.
For the love of God, get stuck in there Man! And good luck!

No chance of certain powers that be whispering in McMenamins ear ?
No, that would never happen would it.
Whatever happens from here on, Robert and his team are holding the high moral ground.
Rock on !
