Nigel Evans Cleared of Rape and Sexual Assault
No Immediate Restoration of Tory Whip 

Evans was led from the dock in tears as local supporters and friends in the gallery erupted into cheers.

Not guilty on eight counts. 

UPDATE: The Guardian are withering in their destruction of the CPS case against Evans:

“The prosecution case against Nigel Evans, the former Commons deputy speaker, began to fall apart as soon as his accusers entered the witness box. One by one, the young men trooped into Preston crown court and said they did not consider themselves victims of any criminal offence, nor had they wanted to complain to police.”

UPDATE II:

        IMO some of his behaviour was indeed criminal, but the case as a whole wasn’t credible and led to his acquittal.

        Yeah right..like the four women who came forward to say categorically that Jimmy Tarbuck had sexually abused them on Top of the Pops in 1963. Even though totp didn’t begin until 1964 and Tarbuck never appeared on it. But of course..in the hysterical compensation led farce of a society we live in it would be unlikely those women lied too. Right?

        Question is – if they did not want to press charges, how did the police become involved with their case ? Did some of their mates report the allegations for them ?

    History in question!

    There may be history behind this Nigel Evans case.
    The police spokesman on TV had been involved with
    this East Lancashire MP years ago – Speeding tickets
    Blackburn HQ. Result – many changes thereafter.
    One would have thought – This is the last copper,
    that one would have expected to be involved,
    with the, now Deputy Speaker. Certainly not even
    emptying the waste paper baskets.

    Or perhaps pay back time. Don’t expect the CPS
    would have added one and one together, there
    are often changes in staff as better pay elsewhere.
    But let’s assume everything was kosher – Still risky.

    Nigel Evans cleared of all charges. Irrespective of
    anyone else’s ideas on relationships, the charges
    were brought, tested and cleared by a jury. But at
    what of the expense to Mr Eaves, the public purse.

    This is the second mega trial in Preston, ‘Ken Roach’
    previously! That has ended in a not guilty verdict.
    What is most amazing is ALL NOT GUILTY on a long
    list of charges. That makes it even more alarming,
    one would have expected with so much time &
    money thrown at these two defendants –
    At least one charge would have been proven.

    Not sure who, police or prosecuting personnel were
    common to both cases, but the Chief Constable along
    with PPS chiefs – Need, one suspects to thoroughly
    examine these defeats.

    Meantime no doubt Preston pubs & hotels can be
    pleased at the Winter upsurge in business from media
    both national & international coverage. However one
    suspects the trials may be over , but the public summing
    up is vital plus urgent.
    As in my Council chamber, I was expected to declare an
    ‘interest’ then depart the discussion if my colleagues
    felt a conflict of issues. Not declaring was very serious.

    Where did we, anyone go wrong?
    Was everything KOSHER?

    Just like football, the management team is required to
    win – dropping down the league table – Is a No! No!

    Another bloody waste of public money. If these witnesses ‘trooped’ into court to state they did not consider themselves victims, one has to ask the question, whether the police and the CPS took that on board in the initial investigations and what was the nature of the advice given in the first instance to encourage seemingly reluctant witnesses to come forward and the intention and purpose of that advice?

    No doubt the NOTW would have been proud of them.
    Alison Saunders is unfit for purpose, in her current role.
    All pretty sleazy, ugly, sordid and unhealthy.
    Not to mention the cost of yet more taxpayers money being wasted, once again.
