Please let it be over

Arrgh. thought the trial would be the end of the Veitch affair. But no all the headlines again today.

First of all very stupid that Veitch used character references in support of him getting his passport back, in sentencing mitigation to the Judge. The Herald quotes an angry Dame Susan Devoy:

“To take those letters of support and use them for a different purpose is, in my opinion, a disgrace,” said Dame Susan.

was happy to write to get his passport back, I thought the trial would be in 2010 or later. It’s totally totally different to writing a character reference for someone who’s pleaded guilty to beating up their girlfriend. We’ve been used and manipulated.

Veitch has only himself to blame for the negative headlines in this case.

The Herald also has a Q&A with Kristin Dunne-Powell. Hopefully this will be the end of it, now that they both have “told their stories” but somehow suspect the Sunday papers will be all over it.
