As ithers see us …



So, Basshunter has been cleared of charges of sexual assault at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court.  Which is fine, but what interested me was the way in which it was reported in some online news media.

In particular, I was amused by the account given by “Eleven” – Basshunter cleared over sex charges, as the author struggled with the niceties of the Scots legal system.  Stacey King tells us that the Sheriff is “the Scottish version of a judge” and yet still manages to insist that the trial took place at “Kirkcaldy Magistrates Court”.

Good work.
