False claims do great damage to real victims
SEXUAL harassment is a very serious charge, and every effort must be made to support real victims of it, and to deal severely with those guilty of having done it.
But these drama queens who are popping up claiming that this man brushed passed me eight years ago, and left me traumatised, or he invited me out for a cup of coffee seven years ago, against my will, need to go and get a life and be told to clear off, for trying to ruin a man’s life over nothing.
Nick Clegg and his oh so PC wife made a false start when they came out recently to attack Labour and the Tories over this. The Lib/Dems have nothing to be smug about, and you would think they would have learned their lesson by now, having pulled this stunt time and time again, only to come a cropper. Still when they trip over the truth, they always pick themselves up, and carry on as if nothing had been said.
There are no political points to be scored here, and it is a disgrace when the likes of Clegg and co. try to do so.
A silly or false claim does great damage to the real victims, and demeans the issue, as well as ruining a man’s career, and it must be stopped. Westminster needs to get a grip on this and not be guilty of pendulum swing going from ignoring matters, to an over reaction, and a bit of savvy, would not go amiss.
45 Years ago I made a pass at a girl, and we have been married for over 43 years, and she is still the love of my life, and thankfully the PC brigade were not around to try to stop destiny. Steve Vickers
