  1. So why all the fuss when Philip Green does the same thing? With private money?
  2. It seems to me that the CPS paid him off in lieu of not admitting any guilt. Sound familiar? Certainly the lack of any moral outrage of this NDA by the usual suspects is resounding.
  3. Looks like the CPS are fond of NDA's too. Protecting their reputation? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/media/paul-gambaccini-payout-crown-prosecution-service-unfounded-historical-sex-abuse-allegations-a8615516.html No wrongdoing of course - nothing to see - move along....
  4. If it were anyone else besides a policeman, this guy would have been nailed to the wall. Instead police use gaggimg order on the press and there is ‘insuffient evidence’ to prosecute. Pull the other one. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6342597/Police-detective-badgered-21-subordinates-sex-kicked-force.html
  5. Again a tribunal issue. Unlesss of course he got physical and racist - it could be classed as a hate crime. But of course these are merely allegations.
  6. Happened with Jack Straw’s son too ~ while he was Home Secretary. Labour are all hypocrites.
  7. Is it sexual harassment or sexual assault? If the latter, it is a police matter and no NDA or gagging order can prevent the complainant from making a further charge. I’m going to guess it was sexual harassment. Basically the guy acted like a chauvinistic ****, and his employee made a complaint wanting to take him to tribunal. Instead of everyone going through that process he offered them a mutually agreeable settlement as long as they signed a standard NDA. Both parties made that choice voluntarily.
  8. The principle of our justice system is innocent until proven guilty. Except in the court of the tabloid press of course.
  9. This is not correct. NDA’s are a two way street. You have a grievance against someone, you settle it. In this case with a financial settlement. NDA’s are signed with independent legal advice on both sides. Please read this: https://inews.co.uk/opinion/comment/what-lord-peter-hain-didnt-consider-when-he-rushed-to-name-name-philip-green/
  10. It depends on how you define ’rare’. It 1% rare enough? We actually don’t know. I would think that when it comes to rape cases the miscarriage of justice Stats will be much higher than other crimes as typically there is no physical evidence - but rather the decision comes down to how the jury perceives the accused and accuser.
  11. This attitude is why we need anonymity in such cases for both the accused and accuser. Because even if you are innocent, you are guilty.
  12. The NDA’s were not signed under duress and did not prevent them from speaking to police. NDA’s are a two way street protecting the privacy of both parties. This has been denied to both thanks to Hain. Read the link I posted above written by a barrister much more eloquently than I could.
  13. They are 100% guilty if a court of law said so - ergo the two thirds acquitted for rape are indeed 100% innocent. The cps themselves have conceded there have been grave miscarriages of justice https://www.theguardian.com/law/2018/jun/05/scores-of-uk-sexual-offence-cases-stopped-over-evidence-failings
  14. This may answer some questions: https://inews.co.uk/opinion/comment/what-lord-peter-hain-didnt-consider-when-he-rushed-to-name-name-philip-green/ And one does have to wonder if Hain didn't have a conflict of interest: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6321173/Peter-Hain-works-law-firm-advised-Telegraph-Philip-Green-injunction.html
