I believe the reason women are given anonymity is that a woman who is raped somehow and wrongly in my mind has a label atached to her, women who are raped get blamed for wearing the wrong clothes a typical term i have heard "she was asking for it". Hearing men talk about women i sometimes as a man feel embarrassed at the general comments they make, maybe its time for a shift change in general ...
@burneside . so anonymity should be in place for alleged sexual assault cases only? I’m not really sure that calling people “nazis” is either appropriate or very grown up. @Calamari . was your comment aimed at me alone, or to @leatash as well? Either way, what’s your view on allowing anonymity for alleged murderers, paedophiles or terrorists?
@Diana Mond The point that I was making is that there have recently been a few high profile cases where the accused's name has been plastered across the media yet the accuser (who I might add fabricated the story) remains annonamous. Does that satisfy you? Probably not. I'm certain that you will find somethig else to have a dig at.
How do you know that three men agreed with me, or is that just your usual arrogance thinking you know it all? In the 70s & 80s both parties in sexual assault trials were granted anonymity, I can see no earthly reason why that law was scrapped. When it comes to judicial matters men are second class citizens, but then that suits the feminazis.
Thanks Leatash, that was exactly the point I was making to “Calamari”. I assume that Burneside (and the 3 blokes who agree with his comment) also believes that alleged murderers/paedophiles/terrorists should also remain anonymous until a judge or jury finds them guilty??
@leatash - completely agree. i can't imagine having to do that and know that i wouldn't be able to.
From that link above "In Dawlish, £4.2million will support the delivery of a new bridge and a new section of a link road. It will provide a high-quality link to community facilities at either end for residents."
Millions of pounds of road and footpath developments are being invested into Devon. In Exeter £3.7million will be spent for the delivery and on-going management of two Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space (SANGS) countryside parks - Dawlish SANGS and Exeter SANGS. This will unlock more than 17,000 new homes and complies with a requirement of National and European Law that could stifle all ...
One thing we do know, if a man had actually been charged then his identity would have been plastered across the media, even before any guilt had been established.
A lot of rape victims withdraw there statements as the thought of a pending court case and facing there attacker is to daunting.
