    Think before you write. How would a politician not have permanent public consequences at least as bad as a criminal record if you report something to the party and get him suspended and sacked?
    I literally said that's not what I would do, but it would be understandable if a victim did that so you try thinking before you write. Put yourself in the shoes of a person who has experienced something traumatic and then sees the Westminster scandal breaking and realises that MPs are inflicting the same trauma on others left, right and centre (no pun intended). Obviously you'd want the party to know that the problem exists there too.

    the process the party followed.
    Well, here's the thing: it doesn't appear to have followed a process. Sargeant's lawyers wrote:

    On Friday the First Minister of Wales advised our client he could not provide details of the complaint or complainants other than that his special advisor Matt Greenough had spoken to the complainant or complainants to verify the complaint.

    This means that Carwyn Jones told Sargeant he had no knowledge of the complaints or complainants. Yet he fired Sargeant, on the basis of the complaints, three days before.

    Does that sound like justice, or a proper process?

    It is beginning to look more and more as if Mr Sargeant was the victim of a nasty plot by the Welsh Labour party leadership and its anonymous accusers to oust him on trumped up charges:
