I’m a bit late to the party with this, but…

In Scotland this year, the following incident happened during a football match before a crowd of thousands, as well as a potential audience of millions on live satellite TV:

During the subsequent trial for sectarian assault, 26-year-old Hearts fan John Wilson – the individual you see running at Neil Lennon and making contact with him – admitted to having hit the Celtic manager on the head.

A jury of fifteen – eight men, seven women – found the assault charge against this man “not proven” last week.

Quite extraordinary.

Sometimes, as a creature trying hard to be rational, I get tired of the conspiracy theories and dualist rhetoric that obsesses some Scots.

And then things like this happen.
