With that the Advocate Depute, Alex Prentice QC, ended his evidence in chief and Mr Sheridan rose to begin his cross-examination.
Mr Sheridan began by putting to the witness that he had said originally he had seen the tape in 2006, to which the witness agreed. He then asked Mr Moore "you don't like me" to which the witness replied "correct Tam." Mr Sheridan then produced a police statement in which Mr Moore refers to Mr Sheridan as "that little shit" and put it to the witness that that "level of hatred" would be enough for him to lie. Mr Moore responded that "everyone knows what you are" and then told the court about an incident at Cessnock underground station (In Glasgow) where he claimed Mr Sheridan had ignored him.
Mr Sheridan returned then to the question of dates and put it to Mr Moore that he was "confused." Mr Moore replied that he might be "confused about dates but I'm not confused about you sonny" and called Mr Sheridan's claim that he had been telling the truth about seeing the tape in 2006 as "pure delusional" Mr Sheridan then ended his cross examination and returned to his seat in the dock.
The Advocate depute rose to re-examine and produced a police statement by Mr Moore where he gives the date of his viewing of the video as 2004. Mr Moore called any suggestion that he had lied to help the News of the World as a "load of shite" and with that the Advocate Depute returned to his seat and Mr Moore was allowed to step down from the witness box.
