And it calls for extra-large bags of popcorn! Are you ready for travellers vs feminists?
A traveller cleared of raping a woman outside a nightclub has spoken of his nine-month ‘nightmare’.
Of course, unlike all those other men in my archives, this is discrimination, to be sure!
The family of the roofer, who lives on the Ewood Caravan Park, said the case should never have got to court at all.
They believe he was blamed because of his traveller heritage and said the allegations had ‘ruined’ his life.
And as they clutch their Victim Card to their chest, spare a thought for all those others who don’t even get that to wave, eh?
Mr Boswell’s dad Sean, 40, said he and his wife Rose, 38, had stood by their son throughout the whole process.
He said: “Tommy would have been cast out of our family and our community if he had been guilty. ”
The defendant’s father called for anonymity for people accused of sex attacks so that if they are found to be innocent, they can carry on with their lives.
He said: “The alleged victims can walk away without their name known, but the defendant’s reputation gets tarnished.”
Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans, who was cleared of rape and sex assault charges in April, said he supported a change in the law.
The CPS ain’t about to budge:
A CPS spokesman said: “The evidence in this case, as in all cases, was carefully reviewed according to the Code for Crown Prosecutors.
“We were satisfied that there was sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction and authorised that the defendant was charged with three counts of rape and two counts of sexual assault.
“The CPS takes allegations of sexual offences extremely seriously and it was therefore in the public interest that the evidence was tested by a jury at court.
“It is the role of the jury to decide if someone is guilty or not, and after hearing both the prosecution and defence cases in this trial the jury acquitted the defendant. We of course respect the decision of the jury.”
So…who do the progressives side with?
