FEMALE STAFF AT WESTMINSTER ARE NAMING AND SHAMING SEX PEST MPS ON A SECRET WHATSAPP GROUP, IT HAS BEEN REVEALED.
Yeah, whoever it was in /iq/ that said this deserves to be a real thread is quite right. This is going to blow up badly for some people and I think we should

>A close ally of the defence secretary said: “Julia is a good friend of Michael’s. He overstepped the mark when he put his hand on her knee. She made it clear it was unwelcome and he rightly apologised 15 years ago.”

Is there something else he did? His name's on ze list but the

There absolutely something else, there's no fucking way Fallon went because he touched a journo's knee. "Standards of the armed forces"; what a load, those animals tolerate bullying, rape and forced consumption of human excrement.

Picture emerging from those in the know is that it wasn't an isolated incident but part of a long history of inappropriate touching, particularly while drunk, which apparently he tends to be rather more often than most. It appears that the headline was the least objectionable incident with the least bothered victim. Sounds like a bona fide limited hangout.

The former Defence Secretary is said to have told Mrs Leadsom, who had complained of cold hands: ‘I know where you can put them to warm them up.’ Sir Michael is alleged to have been ‘tactile’ and put his arm around Mrs Leadsom in what a source described as ‘unwanted attention’.

>>83661 I consider myself pretty open minded and supportive towards stopping sexual harassment/assault, but this story just really feels quite absurd.
It sounds like she got a hug, he may/may not have hugged her too low, or possibly did grab her bum. Either way she didn't care, danced with him, enjoyed his company, then when news about the sexual harassment in Westminster then decides she was upset by it? Or was it just that it fit the definition that has been published and she felt duty bound to report it regardless of context like some sort of good samaritan?
Please do stop me/tell me if I'm being some sort of horrible dinosaur here, but this does genuinely perplex me. I'm not looking to minimise sexual harassment or anything like that, nor do I want to come off as some sort of UKIP voter, but this is just getting weird isn't it?
|>>|| No. 83663
>he may/may not have hugged her too low
That's probably what happened.
You are, however, minimising sexual harassment by suggesting that it's somehow weird for women not to report it unless they feel encouraged to do so by, for instance, a major scandal.
As she says, "When this stuff happens it is us who have to do the work, it’s the women. Every single time. You have to put yourself out there. You have to explain why you didn’t say anything at the time."
|>>|| No. 83664
What a bizarre quote. It's not like the police will swoop in with their psychic bumfondling powers.
|>>|| No. 83665
She's not saying she expects the police to guess. She's saying it's not acceptable that women who report abuse are expected to explain why they didn't report it sooner. It should be pretty universally understood at this point that there's plenty of reasons to not want to report a sexual assault immediately, yet there's still so many who say things like "well why didn't she say anything at the time"
|>>|| No. 83666
In this specific case, it would seem to be a reasonable question. Actually, the ruder alternative question - which is usually what's implied when people ask "why didn't you say anything at the time?" - is the interesting question here. We know why she said nothing at the time, but why did she mention it now? (That's not, as it implies, to say she shouldn't have done - but is it because she personally felt violated, or just because she felt it was something worth mentioning even if she didn't care?)
Ordinarily there would seem to be reasons you just don't inquire about out of politeness. (i.e. if someone was very distressed at the time and then later raised it once there was some distance.) Where those who do inquire are usually just trying to imply "Why are you causing trouble by bringing this up now?" but the specific case seems a bit odd.
Regardless of everything I've just said I'm vaguely aware of the fact that while nobody can stop most people having these thoughts, it still might not be appropriate to say them. But this is an imageboard none of the participants will see or suffer from my thinking-aloud, so whatever.

Bitching about rape is to women what looking at tits and ass is to men. Womens magazines are full of it. It turns them on to think about it. The more people they can bitch to, the more they love it.

That's all well and good, it's perfectly understandable that some women may not feel comfortable to come out about these matters until they have support and backing.
However it's also perfectly reasonable to spot how a lot of this stuff starts pouring out at once when it looks like there's a quick buck or a spot in the limelight to be had.

It's worth stopping to think where this list might have come from. The was talk that it was maintained by staff as collective self-help, but given the list includes Liam Fox and that entry in its entirety reads simply "Adam Werrity" I'm tempted to think it's actually a summary of kompromat from the whips' office.

>However it's also perfectly reasonable to spot how a lot of this stuff starts pouring out at once when it looks like there's a quick buck or a spot in the limelight to be had.
It's been reported that Leadsom's real motive for her complaint about Fallon was that she feared being axed from the Cabinet over rumours she's plotting another leadership bid and because he had suggested getting rid of her in the next reshuffle as he views her as a weak link. Apparently Leadsom believes being a whistleblower will make her untouchable over being sacked from the Cabinet.

One 'high profile' rape case that I could think of off the top of my head, last year.
Don't pretend to be naive just because the details of the failed case against Joe Bloggs doesn't make the rags there aren't plenty of them. The selection bias dictates that cases you would have heard of is reserved for celebrities and the spectacularly cruel nobody and then probably only at conviction, never the case that go nowhere involving nobodies so you don't see those.
I'm sure if you think about people you know there is probably at least one of them who has been accused of such things by at least one mental ex, just that ex may never have indulged themselves quite enough to go to court over it.
I'm not willing to waste my time researching to find you examples of something you'd dismiss off hand because it doesn't match with your world view anyway.
If you don't believe me talk to a judge or a lawyer. They will confirm that the amount of buyer's remorse cases has gone up, and for one very simple reason, the CPS can't use its own judgement to not bring those cases to trial as a matter of policy, if the victim wants to go to trial they are required to, this is also the reason for the low conviction rate of sexual crimes compared to other crimes.

I don't know why they're being so rude/lazy, but there are plenty of statistics here https://rapecrisis.org.uk/statistics.php, including:
>Conviction rates for rape are far lower than other crimes, with only 5.7% of reported rape cases ending in a conviction for the perpetrator. (Kelly, Lovett and Regan, A gap or a chasm? Attrition in reported rape cases, 2005)
>1 in 5 women aged 16 - 59 has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16
>Rape Crisis Centres provided in excess of 450,000 sessions of specialist support, including advocacy, emotional support and counselling, an increase of 29% since 2015-16.
These figures are taken from
>End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW)
>Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit (CWASU), London Metropolitan University
>Ministry of Justice
>Crown Prosecution Service (CPS)
>Crime Survey for England and Wales (formerly the British Crime Survey)
>Office for National Statistics (ONS)
I don't know if I'd go so far as to say "epidemic" but if 20% of women claim to have experienced sexual violence then that's pretty close to an epidemic. Also, if ~95% of rape cases end up getting thrown out, I think it's fair to assume that a lot of them are what >>83667 refers to as "buyer's remorse". Ugly terminology but probably accurate.
|>>|| No. 83688
>I think it's fair to assume that a lot of them are [false]
On what basis?
>(Kelly, Lovett and Regan, A gap or a chasm? Attrition in reported rape cases, 2005)
You might want to look over that report (HORS 293). The executive summary outlines some of the reasons why the conviction rate is so low. It finds that the rate of false reports is lower than most officers thought it is, and even then more than half of those were wrongly classified as false.
|>>|| No. 83690
I read the relevant part of the report.
>even then more than half of those were wrongly classified as false.
I couldn’t find anything to suggest this claim in there. I did find this though
"We spend a lot of time dealing with allegations of rape that really aren’t rape, that take a lot of time up. I would say a good half that come through are not genuine ones."
I then looked through the stats
False allegation is 9.4% of all reported raped according to the study, but this crucially only covers where the police considered it false not where it might be false but it isn't demonstrated to be so, firstly there are Victim declined to complete initial process. Next comes situations where is insufficient evidence and no evidence incidents, this includes some where the victim’s account was either regarded with suspicion or not supported by other evidence, sometimes because they were lying sometimes because the police/CPS concluded the sex was consensual. Then there are cases that were dropped by the police for 'reasons unknown'.
There is 'victim withdrawal' at different stages that could be for that reason, and could equally be true for any cases discontinued by the CPS themselves.
And all of this is before anything has gone to trial where cases are withdrawn during trial could account for some. And one most presume that some of the acquittals are for this reason. So based on that study we now have a margin of anywhere between 9.4% and 72% of all rape claims that involve going to the police are false.

The stupid(er) Hitchens brother has some desperate, controversy baiting, nonsense on this.
>You (he means people complaining about sexual harassment) have lots in common with Militant Islamists on this subject. They, too, believe that all men must be assumed to be slavering predators.
Wrong and wrong. Islamists think women are all harlots who corrupt men, not vice versa, and even within Westminster the number of men accused are a very small minority, so not even a majority, never mind "all". Then he helpfully goes on to suggest this.
>The welfare system is about to melt down. And you think the most important thing in your lives is a hunt for long-ago cases of wandering hands, or tellers of coarse jokes? Yes, you do.
Meaning they should just wait for one of those quieter months in Parliament before mentioning anything the frequent and ongoing sexual misconduct.
It must be hard needing to disagree with everyone, all of the time, forever and ever. And I know it suits the far-right's rhetoric to equate and confuse Islamism (their own ideological bedfellows) with social liberalism, but to do so in an article where you also bemoan PDAs just takes the piss and mick flavoured biscuit.

The whole affair started as an attack on Labour by Guido Fawkes. He either got a tip or went digging and found the embarrassingly misogynist posts by Jared O'Mara. Someone on the red team fired back by tipping off the press about the Whatsapp group, which was followed by a leak of the Tory shit list.
I think that the Tories have plenty of dirt to fire back, but they're cleaning house first. The Tories have always been far better at decisive and unified action (c.f. the leadership election process), which they can press to an advantage here. If they sack enough people to convince the press that they've dealt with the issue, they then have carte blanche to attack Labour.
If the rumours are to be believed, some fairly senior people within the Labour party have been complicit in covering up multiple rapes. If the Tories have just sacked a load of people for touching knees and saying slightly inappropriate things, these allegations look infinitely worse. Going by their track record, Corbyn's team won't be able to orchestrate a decent damage-limitation strategy.
Of course, if there's more serious dirt on the Tories yet to be uncovered, it could be equally damaging to both sides.

I'm sorry I read your report and found it to be lies and statistics composed in bad faith towards an agenda. It would be nice if it was only 9.4% of rape accusations that were false but it isn't. It is just lies and statistics.
To quote the part on insufficient evidence and therefore cases reported as insufficient evidence in the paper
"For the remaining cases, police decision-making turned on evidential issues connected to the complainant, largely where the victim’s account was either regarded with suspicion or not supported by other evidence: in 17 cases the victim’s credibility was explicitly referred to; in 10 cases the issue of previous allegations was seen to cast doubt on the current complaint; in 27 inconsistencies or lies were referred to; and in 26 the police and/or CPS took the view that sex was consensual".
If victims lying and consensual sex is insufficient evidence rather than false allegations of rape I'm a banana.

It reminds me of a story I got from a libel lawyer of how he ended up in the profession despite its less-than-idealistic reputation.
He had once practiced family law as a new barrister and loved his job until one day he was representing the father in a messy divorce. The mother had made up a complete bullshit story that he had diddled their daughter and the father was barely hanging on. There was absolutely no evidence that he had done anything of course but still, at the end of that days session the judge ordered him put in the cells. The barrister did everything he could to stop this, even being threatened by the judge himself but there was no way to bring reason into the equation.
That night the father hung himself. If I was in a position where I was convinced I was going to be sent down for something like that I would do the same.

That's the thing really. Allegations of this sort are enough to ruin your career and reputation, regardless of whether or not they are true. The mere accusation is enough to discredit someone and colour their reputation for years to come.
I mean, what's the actual argument against anonymity for alleged perpetrators of crime? Why isn't that a thing, considering the level of ethical restraint our media can be relied on to display these days?
You can read into it however you want. He topped himself before the sordid truth came spilling out, or it was just the tragic straw that broke the camel's back. The fact he is now dead is a failure of civilised justice either way.

It creates a situation where the police are dragging people from their homes with nobody knowing what they did wrong. The dreaded midnight knock is one of the hallmarks of a totalitarian regime and of course, often justified to protect people.
The results are often disastrous when the public knows what someone is accused of sure, but the other side of the coin is a system of justice without accountability.
