BELEAGUERED MSP Bill Walker says he will not be "hounded" out of his job and claims he is a victim of "trial by media".
Mr Walker, who has been expelled by the SNP and is at the centre of a flurry of allegations of domestic abuse and now rape, told the Press he was "absolutely determined" to carry on.
He said, "I feel Dunfermline has been under attack these past few days. I want people to know I strongly deny these allegations of domestic violence and serious assault."
Mr Walker, who was back in parliament this week, said he was acting in self-defence when he slapped an ex-wife who attacked him with a dagger.
