“What an irony it would be if another good old British parliamentary sex scandal brought down this government – and not the Brexit abomination or the extreme suffering caused by austerity or any of the myriad acts of atrocious governance they have been guilty of since 2010.”

Today’s Guardian app.




i would never have guessed that a left wing paper would disapprove of right wing policies...

ok.

Self indulgence though.....anyone who looks at my web history without a solid understanding of the likes of Hermetics and the like, may make some inaccurate judgements....assuming self indulgence when actually I am working pretty hard at knowing myself better. Wink

Anyhow back to the topic in hand, love Matt in tonight’s Telegraph.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/

I've been too busy having fun at other people's expense of late to read the Sunday Times until this afternoon....and have just seen that Brussels has had to take emergency action to tackle similar behaviour....

I can forgive Jorgan's capitalisation of Triathlon as he has spent too much time in the Fatherland.

But forums? Fora dear boy, fora. Very Happy

Went to a Corporate team-building event in Germany last week.

Blokes dressed up in drag.

Ladies being asked to be 'babes' (and some declined but some of the older ones didnt)

Drunkenness and the occasional wandering hand.

If it had been held in the UK, the PC brigade would have had a collective fit.

Meanwhile Germany carries on as normal and laughs at the Uk and its hangups from 20 years ago. I wonder how long it will be before Bennie Hill is dug up to be tried as a criminal?

there is certainly a fight to become holier than thou in the UK at present...we are not quite at Canada's standards but closing in fast...

there has to be a balance between consensual groups as per GO's example and abuse of authority...

What will happen is one too many snowflake complaining about something that happened 20 years ago, will lose a court case, be sued for slander, get taken to the cleaners and then 90% of the claims will suddenly get forgotten about on 'legal advice'.

The situation will return to 'normality' (whatever that may be), except a few real cases will not be brought to justice because too many people tried jumping on the bandwagon.

the risk is, of course, that the UK's legal system has joined the popularist band waggon and some of the 20 year "i accepted the meal, but was offended when he kissed me goodnight" could result in not only a charge, but a conviction too...

You're right of course, but given the age of the people in the courtroom who are less likely to have any kind of truck with some of the nonsense being spouted at the moment, on balance I would expect there to be an acquittal as in most cases there are no witnesses.

don't be too sure, they are still sulking that they will soon lose out on the rich takings that come from being a member of the european courts...

I can verify that as a teenager in the '60 and a young woman in the 70's sexual harassment was almost an everyday occurrence and one learned to detect and avoid and to protect oneself from anything from unwanted attention to unpleasant contact. It was verbal too and a form of bullying. BUT, we learned to live with it. At the same time we were all "dolly birds" with short minis so it was a confusing time as well.We all understand that there were different kinds of men and to constantly be on one's guard. We pitied sexual pests although some must have married them.

I hope that we have come a long way since then nannysooz. That this kind of behaviour still takes place is disturbing especially in environments where people should know better although it seems that it is in those very environments where idiots still think it is acceptable...
