OMG, these ditsy women.  They are undermining the seriousness of rape and those people who have really been traumatised.

All this feminism business has got out of hand - gosh when we were young the fellas were always pinching your bum and wolf whistling - they meant nothing by it and we just laughed and went on our way.  It was considered flattering if a fella whistled at you - it never went further.  Just males being males and females being females.  No one made a big deal out of it.  It`s part of the rituals of the sexes.

More claims about George Bush Senior.

He's of an age to remember when behaviour like this would have been considered acceptable; I certainly don't think that it is now though.

I will probably get lambasted but really, this is just going to go on and on and on - it just cannot end, now Fallon has resigned, and Dustin Hoffman on the front of the papers...

I`m glad Fallon has gone but not for the reasons given.

I agree all this historic groping stuff has got beyond a joke - so what, Dustin Hoffman sexually harrassed a girl - yeah, so ?? ........ ooooh errr missus shock horror. I bet it was no more than a chat up line knowing how ridiculous this has got. Something along the lines of telling her how sexy she looked or what a good figure or a nice pair of legs she had.

Recent allegations against various MPs and famous people

Post  candyfloss on Fri 03 Nov 2017, 9:30 pm

Thought perhaps we could do with a thread of its own on this as it looks as if it will go on and on.  I hope Freedom  (pretty please) could transfer some of the other posts on this here....


So now we have 2 MPs being looked into today......

Just breaking news........Tory MP Charlie Elphicke suspended by party after "serious allegations"


Labour suspends Luton North MP Kelvin Hopkins

Tim Fallon has resigned.

He was our constituency MP a long time ago; the last Tory one actually.

He said the UK would back the USA in bombing Assad without doing his homework. IMO he is either stupid or ignorant if he believes the US rhetoric about Assad.

Also he is willing to sell arms to the Saudis and the Israelis. But then most of the Tory government support the USA, the Saudis and the Israelis - as we have seen by Theresa May recently giving Netanyahu a welcome to celebrate the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, which IMO is not something to celebrate.

However his replacement has a lot to be desired it seems, i.e. no experience, especially of the military.

This seems a bit unlikely. Was there never anyone else around to witness these incidents - he supposedly walked around in the nude!!!

No mention of child porn (which is probably what many people would assume it was) or if it was actually illegal porn.

It certainly shouldn't have been on his parliamentary computer though - IF it ever was.

Damien Green, note it says 'extreme' pornography Shocked

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/deputy-prime-minister-damian-green-denies-police-claims-extreme-pornography-found-ministerial-1645945



snipped:

However, in what appears to be a cover-up, Bob Quick, a former assistant commissioner at the Metropolitan Police, said he was forced to step down in 2009 before he had a chance to report the pornography to parliamentary authorities.

Responding to the reports in a statement Mr Green said he was the victim of "an unscrupulous character assassination."
"This story is completely untrue and comes from a tainted and untrustworthy source.
"I've been aware for some years that the discredited former assistant commissioner Bob Quick has tried to cause me political damage by leaking false information about the raid on my parliamentary office.
"No newspaper has reported this story due to the complete lack of any evidence. The police have never suggested to me that inappropriate material was found on my Parliamentary computer.
"Nor did I have a 'private' computer, as has been claimed. The allegations about the material and the computer, now nine years old, are false. They amount to little more than an unscrupulous character assassination."








Bob Quick was forced to stand down before he had a chance to report it....... WTF!!!!!

I have just this minute been reading of this man's death, and it is truly awful and sad. 

This naming and shaming is getting out of control now.  Trial by media etc.  It should be done behind closed doors to the party and then police and only when it comes to a trial should the person be named.

People should take note everywhere, on twitter, on the forums etc.  it is not good to name and shame, it can lead to disastrous consequences, and of course did with the very sad death of Brenda Leyland.

I thought that this was a spoof as I saw it first in The Daily Beast but it's in The Mail too!

This was posted originally on the Feminist topic but it's relevant here too.
