Words from Colin

Thanks from Colin
Hi Everyone
First of all, I'd like to start
by saying a massive thank
you to everyone who has
taken the time to look at
this website. I am
overwhelmed with all the
positive feedback and
support I have received. I
am extremely grateful and
it is much appreciated. It's
not easy being stuck in
here, knowing I've done
nothing wrong. It gets
very frustrating when no
one listens to, or believes
me so to see the support
I'm receiving through this
site is very touching and
refreshing to know that
not everyone believes
what rubbish the trashy
tabloids decide to print. If
I hadn't been a victim of it
myself, I'd never have
believed how much they
twist the facts for the
sake of a dramatic
headline. I'm glad recent
events which resulted in
the closure of the "News
of the World", has
highlighted that this does
actually happen.
Speaking of evidence,
hopefully, the new
evidence I have, will
encourage the Criminal
Cases Review Commission
(CCRC), to refer my case
back to the court of
appeal. Unfortunately,
there are no guarantees,
hence the reason for this
campaign. Everyone who
has ever had a successful
appeal with a complex
case, has had some kind
of campaign supporting
them. That's why I ask
that you pass this website
on to everyone you know,
and if possible, encourage
them to sign the e-
petition. I understand its a
big ask to get 100,000
signatures, but word of
mouth is a powerful tool,
and all it takes is for one
person to tell another, to
tell another and so
on ........... The positivity
not only helps my state of
mind on a daily basis, but
it CAN make a difference.
My friends and family
regularly update me on
what's happening with the
site and the petition.
You've no idea how this
helps me cope. Believe
me, all those people who
think prison is like a
holiday camp has
obviously never been in
this position.
Thanks again to everyone
who's reading this, it
means more than you all
Take Care Everyone.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
