What do you expect to happen to him?
I expected it to pan out exactly how it has.

If he was treated the same way a Rangers fan would be then I would have expected days upon days of front page headlines in the Scottish press. A witch-hunt to remove his GCU credentials and to get him fired from Line of Duty. Ultimately his name dragged through the mud and career over

Dear GCU,

I have today become aware from various social media platforms of GCU's standard reply to complaints of the sectarian and anti British racist behaviour of Martin Compston. I have attached GCU's reply below.

This reply is utterly incredulous. Having viewed the video of Martin Compston, indulging in sectarian and anti British racist behaviour, your reply only serves to tarnish the reputation of the University. GCU Acting Head of Governance Debbie Donnet can find "no evidence" of sectarian and anti British racism by Martin Compston. Undoubtedly, the investigation carried out by Debbie Donnet had several plausible conclusions. "No evidence" isn't one of them. Can you confirm that Debbie Donnet contacted Martin Compston to explain his behaviour. Until this happens and Martin Compston's issues a denial to GCU that he engaged in sectarian and anti British racist behaviour and that his denial, should he choose to deny it, is made publically available there will be "grounds to review the University's relationship with Martin Compston".

Against this background GCU aligning themselves to the sectarianism and anti British racism of Martin Compston is very far from closed.

Will you please remind Debbie Donnet, Acting Head of Governance, that governance provides a framework for managing organisations. It identifies who has the authority to act on behalf of the organisation and who is accountable for how an organisation and its representatives behave. The sectarian and anti British racist behaviour of Martin Compston is not how a representative of GCU should behave as detailed in the policy of your University. He should be held accountable. If those responsible for the governance of GCU who choose not apply the University's policy they should also be held accountable.

I await your considered reply

Dear XXX
Thank you for your email. Further to my earlier reply, having reviewed available clips of the event to which you refer, we can find no evidence that Martin Compston participated in singing inappropriate lyrics. Our Communications team regularly views all content on social media which refers to GCU and, having viewed this video on multiple channels, we maintain our position that there are no grounds to review the University’s relationship with Martin Compston.
Against this background the University considers this correspondence closed.

Regards

Debbie

The part where GCU state "we can find no evidence that Martin Compston participated in singing inappropriate lyrics" in itself tells that their starting position on this entire scandal is a defence of Martin Compston. They have failed to acknowledge his behaviour in clearly attempting to lead what is going on.

It is like the lawyer of a bank job getaway drivers defence saying there is no evidence of the accused actually robbing the bank. These sort of things don't stand any longer and GCU need to address the bigger picture which so far I see they have failed to do.
I have contacted them & whilst others on here can clearly communicate on a clearer manner than myself, I believe we need to be asking GCU about the entire incident
1. His attendance
2. His clear promotion of others actions
3. His continued attendance at event
4. His failure to call out what happened
5. His acknowledgement that he is not the lyric add-on Police it itself is an admission of Compston knowing what went on
Etc etc

Cheers mate.There are hundreds of messages here.If you don't mind and have the link/address would you put it on again as reply to me.It would be appreciated and wouldn't do any harm.

I think a few bears are unhappy and will be following up on this and then complaining if it's not done fairly.
Typical damage control address only one point.

As we all know behaviour is directly linked to thoughts, emotions and the environment we are in.
She has not assessed that at all.

Why is he so elated as the crowd sing that song?

Why is he not, for example,swaying to the sound with his arms aloft to a happy song.(the original lyrics)

Instead he's pumping his chest in a militant fashion that more matches the crowds praise of an extremist terrorist organisation.

He appears elated whilst a crowd sing about the IRA.

And on and on there's lots to assess regarding his behaviour etc in relation to his position and the establishments own rules on descent behaviour,attitudes and conduct.
GCU complaints process

There is the other option of showing up GCU for their nonsense

These are GCU Twitter account for the Uni and Alumni account . I may be an idea to do a series of tweets explaining the complaint itself and then how appalling the University has been in their dealing of this and their shocking handling of this affair and making it clear, they are not following their own process & are being biased in their handling of this complaint. The Alumni twitter feed is one that should be targeted using the format below as many former students/now graduates are actually in positions of authority in business etc and that do business with GCU to take students for training, sponsorship etc..

Tweet 1

Show the video of Compston singing about the IRA and why we are complaining.

Tweet 2

Post the response from GCU and their bare faced lies and downright stupidity of their email response

Tweet 3
Just ask the simple question.. Why is GCU refusing to following its own rules on equality & diversity & do the right thing & strip Martin Compston of his honorary degree ? Are GCU also then saying they support the song he is singing & the IRA terror gangs?






I would also say if anyone does do this, please just stick to the basics and do not add in any comments that could be deemed to be possibly sectarian such as using terms such as F-enians.

She's appears to be acting as his defence by deliberate omission.
I think that its possible that she also thinks that she is dealing with knuckle draggers

He's starting to become quite active on Instagram again. Posting stories, where no one can reply of course. Will no doubt have been advised to avoid everything else.

Absolutely sickening how this can just blow over with no repercussions for him
Happily replied to one of stories asking where the apology is. The fact he's actively ignoring his own mess shows that he either genuinely believes he's done nothing wrong or he's managed to convince himself that his promoting of a murder gang is not a big deal. Either way those that can see the situation for what it is know that compston genuinely is a sick individual who rallies people around him in support of a terror hate group. Until he acknowledges and apologises then it's am unequivocal fact that compston is an anti British racist who revels in the actions of a terrorist group. We know it's a fact and he isn't ashamed of it, we've learned that from him directly.

He's plugging this on his insta stories. I'd suggest letting this person know that martin unashamedly promotes the IRA

He'll be proud of it.

Let's face it, he is one of them. This incident will only endeare him to them even more.

Shameless bump to the front,keep up the fight guys don't give in to them.
It isn't shameless at all, i commend you. This man has openly showed his love for a group dedicated to killing people who don't agree with them. Those that can fathom a thought for themselves know compston genuinely supports a hate group. His guilt is evident, the events of last week involving the PM would of had him frothing at the tweets. He's silent because he knows he's massively in the wrong, he actually knows that and we can see it through his lack of social media presence

If anyone has Instagram then tell this guy he's working with someone who actively promotes a murder, hate gang and isn't ashamed of it either.

Got an email earlier in the week from GCU saying they consider the matter closed. No action will be taken.
Have a look at # 2154 mate I think that its not over yet personally.

There is still a solid argument for asking for his award to be taken off of him.
She has only looked at the songs lyrical content and within the context its hard to prove and easy to whitewash legally.
Unfortunately there are original lyrics to the song and that's what he and she will always maintain , that he was singing them.

Its highly suspicious that she blatantly ignores both his behaviour and mood during this song.

She can't deny that he is cheerleading a crowd signing about a proscribed terrorist organisation.
We can hear the lyrics and so can he.
So can Deborah Donnet.
So why is he so elated , militantly thumping his chest and right at the forefront of the stage egging them on.
All whilst thay sing about the IRA.
There's no asking them to stop or even stepping back.
He's maintains that he's no lyric policeman.
He's the conductor of the choir.Its blatant and it's all about the IRA.

The matters far from closed.
I've just written back asking her to explain his behaviour and elated emotional state within the context of the praise of terrorists.
Is this acceptable behaviour from someone who has been honourably awarded and represents them etc

There's also scope to complain about her conduct by closing the case and her lack of properly examining the evidence in the first instance and also any subsequent whitewash.
I personally think that she is hoping that we will lie back and just accept her lack of a proper investigation padded out in a stock cut and paste reply.

She's hoping that we are just reactionary knuckledraggers.
Everyone ones different as far as the depth of content etc but I'm hoping that she will be challenged and if need be officially complained about in relation to this disgraceful whitewash of a reply.
Captaincaveman has put some good posts on here in relation to this.

Exactly.
That's why her assertion that the matter is closed is dismissed.
I would be interested in her replies to follow up emails and any attempts to explain away his behaviour and very evident emotional state within the context.
If she tries to ignore this then she can only dig a deeper hole for herself when it comes to a lack proper examination of the evidence.

All the complaints in the world won't barely make an ounce of difference when directed at an "actor or celebrity"...

If a Bear crosses the path of Compston or his bigoted pal, the easiest and most effective option is to snap the cvnts nose, jaw and arms. Simple!!

The wee rat has just walked into Sounders Bar at the Scores hotel St Andrews with Gordon Smart.

He’s steaming and I’m with the wife and couldn’t snap a wet fag or I’d burst him

Man of the people at the golf?

Surely not.

And it says a lot he gets steaming at a golf tournament. No decorum.

Wow, Martin is such a good guy, he would never do anything in support of terrorism!

I mean, he helped a guy once, what a hero he is!

We should all bow down on respect to the amazing Martin and his saintly acts.

I'm sure his friendship with Gordon Smart had nothing to do with this story...
