New ways of dealing with rape accusations and it doesn't seem to be getting thought through properly. About 45 years ago I was in a house with several other people having a coffee and it was about 1.30 a.m., suddenly the door burst open and there was a girl (it was another daughter of the house) with her clothing dishevelled, her eyes streaming with mascara as she had been crying, her hair was mussed and her stockings laddered, one shoe missing. Get the picture?
When she saw us she suddenly perked up and said "Effin 'ell it's only you lot." It turns out that when she saw the light on she thought it was her old man, supposedly a strict bloke, waiting up for her. She therefore worked herself up into a frenzy and disordered her own clothing and threw a shoe away etc and went into the house to face her dad, but she was going to claim rape as the reason for being adrift. She had been with a bloke and had just had a good seeing to. If it had been her dad waiting up then this bloke would have been tracked down and accused of rape. All the evidence was pointing that way, including the DNA (except there was no such thing then). Where would the new proposals have left that poor schmuck?
