Sure, go ahead, have an affair, then blame everything on the woman.

I'm not sure who you want to blame - Kevin Walsh, who had an affair and got divorced from Katrina Walsh in 2008, or Ian Johnston, who had an affair with Sarah Williams, which is why she wanted to kill his partner, Sadie Hartley.

I don't see why you wouldn't blame the two women who committed the murder, to be honest.

I have zero sympathy for Ian Johnston and, yes, I do think his behaviour and actions contributed in a small way to the overall plot.

The blame for the actual murder lies solely with the murderers but Ian Johnston brought Williams into their lives and continued contact with Williams up until the eve of the murder which would have confirmed to her that he would be hers if only she remove Sadie.

Ian Johnston's woeful "There but for the Grace of God go most men, because they would have behaved like me." was utterly disgraceful and his soap opera type crying where there are no tears was pathetic, he's looking for the sympathy vote and, in my opinion, doesn't deserve a shred of it.

Wtf? Are you serious? Two women plot to stab an innocent woman on her doorstep and you think their ex husbands are to blame? I can't see any blame at all to be placed with either of the men mentioned in the article. If you do, could you explain further?

TheBathroomSink Thu 18-Aug-16 20:33:38

I don't have any sympathy for Johnston emotions but the article the OP linked to is about Kevin Walsh.

Whilst I find Johnston's attitude to be pathetic, I also believe that the people who should be blamed are the killers.

hmm

emotionsecho Thu 18-Aug-16 20:55:49

Oh bugger sorry TheBathroom I read the article then read one about /saw the interview Ian Johnston gave and confused the two because Ian Johnston annoyed me so much, apologies!

You are absolutely right, the blame lies squarely on the shoulders of the two women who committed the murder, I can't see the relevance of trying to involve Kevin Walsh.

Don't be so fucking ridiculous.

TheSultanofPingu Thu 18-Aug-16 21:13:51

What do you mean by blame everything on the woman?
Are you talking about the woman who paralysed Sadie Hartley with a stun gun and then stabbed and slashed her 40 times.
Are you suggesting that he's just as accountable for this poor woman's murder?

hownottofuckup Thu 18-Aug-16 21:14:56

Kevin Walsh had an affair leading to the break down of his marriage, so is in someway responsible for his ex wife being involved in a murder some years later? Jeesh.

Stun guns and knives don't kill people, affairs do.

Oh, no, hang on...confused

OP two women murdered a completely innocent woman who had done nothing to either of them.

The two convicted killers are wholly responsible. They are atrocious individuals. However, Ian Johnston's statement that he and Sadie have been robbed of a wonderful future together made me furious. He was a philanderer and he did not treat Sadie with any respect at all. Also, how dare he complain that he's not in Sadie's will? I've no doubt that he is suffering but I will reserve my sympathy for the Sadie and her immediate family.

I don't think that Walsh's ex husband is in any way culpable. On the contrary, they seem to have remained on cordial terms. Men (and women) sometimes have affairs, which is disagreeable behaviour, but it doesn't make them responsible for their partners' subsequent crimes.
