This is disgraceful. Paedophilia is a dark and sordid part of society. It is gradually being forced into the open and in a desperate attempt to prevent those in power and those responsible for looking after our children from being exposed, the suggestion is to lower the age of consent to 13 years of age. Ms Hewson should be removed from the Barr. It should come as no surprise that some in the British government have been campaigning for this for a long time citing reasons such as ‘it would be far more distressing for a child to have to go through a court hearing than to make it legal’. Operation Yewtree has so far only arrested ‘minor’ celebrities yet it is widely known that very senior members of the government are involved but have not been arrested. Why is that?
Young children of ages 13 to 16 are easily manipulated and the lure of an older person, male or female, offering money, gifts etc to entice them into having sex with them should not be made legal to protect them. It beggars belief the levels that society is falling to if this is allowed.
