Scottish scientist's defence V criminal tweets chargeI'm Peter Dow. I'm a Scottish scientist and a republican socialist and I'm in big legal trouble!
I'm on trial for my @ peterdow tweets
Trial date - Aberdeen Sheriff Court, 23rd February 2016
The tweets I posted on my @ peterdow Twitter account in July 2014, two months before the Scottish independence referendum, employed republican political rhetoric to try to express in the strongest possible terms my political support -
- for a republic to replace the kingdom and
- for an elected president to replace the monarch as head of state.
I link from my @ peterdow Twitter account to my Scottish National Standard Bearer website at SCOT.TK where I dutifully explain the reasons why the people of Scotland would do better, be safer and be more prosperous, if we exercise our political right to establish a Scottish republic.
None of my tweets were literal "threats" or literally "threatening" that I or anyone else could, would or should "threaten" the Queen.
MODERATOR: I have reduced this post considerably as readers can obtain information on Mr Dow's issues on his website referred to above.
