Surely "A Touch More Treason" wasn't published *before* "A Touch of Treason". 04:24, 14 Dec 2004 (UTC)

a republican QC ... seems a bit hypocritical

One of the guys who stole the Stone of Scone, huh? I'm amazed the security surrounding such national symbols such as the coronation objects was so lax as late as the 1950s. What were the British thinking? 19:34, 15 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]

The sentence "During this repatriation the stone was broken into two pieces but Hamilton, a young law student at the time, never faced prosecution after pointing out to the authorities that in order to pursue a successful prosecution they would first have to establish rightful ownership." Seems deliberately worded in a biased manner, so I have removed it unless anyone can give a citation for the issue of ownership being debated at the time. The ownership ofhistorical items has been dealt with in law generally, so it seems to be a claim made for biased purposes. (talk) 11:58, 19 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

The phrase "one of Scotlands most prominent lawyers" is uncited and appears biased. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:04, 19 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

I take issue with the notion Scotland was conquered. In 1707 they entered into an economic union that transitioned into a political union. Perhaps the author of this post might reconsider the wording. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:35, 17 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]



The box that refers to the profession of Ian Hamilton QC as a Barrister betrays a lack of knowledge of both the man himself (who is after all the subject of this article) and his professional career. Ian Hamilton is an Advocate, Queen's Counsel, and former temporary acting Sheriff in Scotland. Barristers are not (nor ever have been) a part of the legal profession in Scotland, Advocates, Solicitors (Agents or Writers), and since 1990 Solicitor-Advocates are the main areas of specialism within the Scots legal profession. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ScotsDaddyintheUSA (talkcontribs) 01:21, 11 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
