…despite forensic tests on all the players’ phones, only one photograph was found on Barker’s phone.
It showed the sleeping woman with shaving foam spelling out GB on her thigh. Barker was next to her doing a thumbs-up sign and smiling.
Another player, Leon Redwood, said he went into the room at night and sprayed the foam.
Barker and Rodgers said the woman had joined in the “boy’s banter”. She climbed into bed with them and started kissing them.
Dunk and Cook said they were sleeping on the floor and did not get involved with the woman.
The woman was said to have “told a pack of lies” following the incident.
She agreed she lied to police and her employers but said she had been humiliated by the sportsmen.
She complained to police about the players six months later after getting into a volatile relationship with another player, Kazenga LuaLua.
Footballers in the UK are falsely accused almost on a weekly basis. In the vast majority of the cases, they are ‘lucky’ and the lies do not end up completely destroying their lives and careers, although the false accusers are rarely if ever punished. In a minority of cases, they are not so lucky, and are caged, likely to be anally raped and beaten, on the basis of extremely dubious testimony.
The mayor of the Japanese city of Osaka has apologised for suggesting US soldiers should use legal brothels as a way to curb sexual crimes in Okinawa.
US personnel have been involved in a number of violent crimes in Okinawa over the years, including rapes.
One might think that racism was the politically incorrect offence the mayor was guilty of, but it appears that it was actually in condoning prostitution as a legitimate business :
“The phrase ‘sex businesses’ was inappropriate,” he said in a TV interview on Saturday.
Despite having the most liberal pornography laws in the world, including those relating to child pornography (which is still legal to possess and of which the minimum age to perform in was until recently 13), the rape of women and young schoolgirls is very rare in Japan, and when it does occur, it is most often committed by the tiny minority of American troops – the USA being the most puritan and paedohysteric nation in the Western world.
This is in line with numerous studies and observations that clearly reveal a link between sexually repressive controls on prostitution and pornography and high rates of rape and (real) child sexual abuse. This, of course, directly contradicts the feminist claim that porn and prostitution leads to the abuse of women and children, a claim which readers will be aware is simply an attempted rationalisation of the fact that it is necessary for women to seek restrictions on the sex trade as the the commercialisation of sex brings down the sexual market value of most ordinary women. Thus the feminist attack on porn and prostitution is an underhand means of trying to force men to have sexual relationships with women, through the restriction of alternatives and using the implicit threat of state violence and imprisonment as a deterrence to seeking alternatives – attempted rape under most sensible legal definitions.
The grieving family of a man found hanged in a cemetery claim he was driven to suicide following paedophile accusations on Facebook.
Steven Rudderham, 48, was traumatised when his name, address and photograph were published online, along with a message calling him a ‘dirty perv’ and claiming he was a paedophile.
Within 15 minutes, the message had been shared hundreds of times and the bricklayer from Hull, East Yorkshire, began receiving death threats on Facebook, an inquest heard.
The police are ‘considering’ investigating. When a
false accuserrape victim has her name revealed on Twitter, they conduct dawn raids the next day.
Islamic militants have gunned down and murdered four prostitutes in Pakistan – and some still wonder why feminism/a Sexual Trade Union is not needed in these muslim shitholes :
Excerpts from the introduction to ‘The Secret of Bryn Estyn’ (2005) by the deceased journalist Richard Webster. This was a monumental expose of the hysteria and fantasy behind the witch-hunt over allegations of a paedophile sex ring at a North Wales children’s home – allegations now being revivied in the wake of the Jimmy Savile hysteria. (see Steve Moxon on this)
There is a view of history which suggests that as we progress towards civilised rationality, we are less and less likely to fall prey to unreason, or to be gripped by those episodes of collective insanity which have scarred European history. The demonological anti-semitism of the Christian middle-ages or of the great European witch-hunt of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were, according to this perspective, terrible aberrations from the path of progress; they belong to the childhood of humankind rather than to the state of rational maturity we have now reached. Witch-hunts are things that happen in other countries or other eras than our own. We have passed beyond them.
This book is written in the belief that such a view is not only mistaken but dangerous. The history of twentieth-century Europe certainly offers no evidence to support it. Both modern European anti-semitism and Stalin’s purges were marked by collective fantasies in which people identifying themselves as the “pure” sought to persecute or even destroy entire groups of human beings imagined as ‘evil’ or ‘unclean’. These are not the only modern examples of our susceptibility to large scale delusions in which, through a terrible process of psychological projection, we attribute to minorities we have defined as evil or unclean, our own unacknowledged desires and darkest impulses.
The widespread belief, that belonging as we do to a scientific rational age, we are no longer vulnerable to such fantasies, is itself one of the most dangerous of all of our delusions. For it is precisely because of our rationalism, and the difficulty we have of acknowledging our own violence and the full depth and complexity of our sexual imagination, that we are probably more susceptible to dangerous projections than we ever have been.
If we briefly survey the role which has been played in medieval and modern history by collective fantasies, one fact which will almost immediately become apparent is that many of the most powerful historical fantasies involve children and the need to protect them. For although we assume that our own anxieties about the vulnerabilities of innocent children are distinctly modern, this is very far from the case. The notion that there exists an evil conspiracy given to preying on children and causing them harm is an ancient one. One of the many forms it has taken was the accusation of ritual murder traditionally levelled against Jews by Christians in the days leading up to Good Friday. First made in Norwich in 1144, the accusation usually consisted in a baseless claim that a group of Jews had kidnapped a Christian child and tortured or murdered it for ritual purposes. This ‘blood libel’ circled the globe and travelled down the centuries to the time of Hitler, establishing itself as one of the main motifs of Christian and Post-Christian anti-semitism. The sinister conspiracy of child murdering Jews which it conjured up existed only in the imagination, but this did not prevent countless innocent Jewish people from being hunted down and killed in the name of Christian virtue. The notion that Jews were actually in league with the devil, and that they had designs on Christian children, lay at the very heart of medieval demonological anti-semitism – which is one of the most important and least acknowledged elements in the cultural heritage of Christian Europe.
A comparable fantasy, which was to prove just as compelling to the Christian imagination, would eventually emerge. This maintained the existance of a society of witches who flew through the air astride rams, pigs or broomsticks, and gathered together to engage in the orgiastic worship of their master Satan. The members of this evil conspiracy supposedly took particular delight in besmirching that which was holy and destroying innocence. They were sometimes imagined killing and eating young children or babies in sacrificial rituals.
Such fantasies as these do not belong, as we like to believe, to some primitive, archaic mode of thought that we have long since transcended. The more we feel impelled, in our pursuit of civilised rationality, to eclude from our own self-image violent, destructive, or sexually perverse impulses, the more we tend to define such feelings irredeemably external or alien. Projecting feelings we experience as alien is one of the ways in which we attempt to get rid of them. The process of demonising cultural enemies is, in this sense, entirely normal.
It is also dangerous. Whenever we allow any group of human beings to be demonised, the anxieties associated with our dreams of purity throughout history will almost inevitably be brought into play ; we will begin to imagine the group in question in the same terms which are found in other demonological fantasies. They will be seen as members of an evil, highly organized conspiracy intent on infiltrating our national life and harming the very people towards whom our own feelings are most complex and most ambivalent – our children…..
…..How, it might be asked, given the finding of the Tribunal, can the facts of what happened in North Wales still be in dispute? How could an inquiry presided over by a judge ever be held responsible for helping to lay the foundations for a modern witch-hunt?
One way of answering these questions is to point out that, of all the misconceptions about historical witch-hunts, perhaps the most important is that they were driven forward by the common people – that they were based on the untutored instincts of the mob. This is the very opposite of the truth. In historical reality the witch-hunts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were the creation of the learned. They were set in motion not by ordinary people but by an educated elite consisting of bishops, ministers, magistrates and judges. These zealous agents of Christian purity pursued those they deemed witches not out of whims or fantasies but on the basis of what they believed to be solemnly attested facts. Historically, indeed, witch-hunts have always relied on judges and magistrates, and on official inquiries, in order to maintain their power and authority.
By turns horrified and fascinated by its vivid sexual content, many of those who were called upon, some three centuries ago to scrutanize evidence of witchcraft, suspended their critical judgement. They unsceptically accepted accounts of crimes that were unlikely or impossible and came to believe unreservedly that they had discovered solid evidence for an evil conspiracy which did not in fact exist. As a result, countless innocent men and women were convicted of offences they had not committed and many were burned alive.
Whenever we allow demonological fantasies to develop in our midst, as we have with in relation to the paedophile ring theory of children’s homes, there is always a danger that the same process of self-delusion may take place all over again. For when, small, zealous groups become seized by this kind of fantasy, they may well, as happened repeatedly throughout history, construct a narrative so powerful that they cannot escape from its grip. There is then a very great danger that they – or the agents of the church or state that they succeed in mobilizing – may begin unwittingly to ‘create’ the very evidence they need to intensify this fantasy.
Because fantasies of this kind are immensely powerful, and because we are all sucseptible to them, it is more than likely that we will fail to recognise what has happened. This danger is particularly acute when a delusion is based upon a palpable reality. For, when fantasy is mixed with fact in unequal proportions, the fantasy can sometimes even become more dangerous and even more destructive.
(theantifeminist : I wonder if a certain Men’s Human Rights Site would have the balls and the integrity to at least discuss Hewson’s thoughts? I mean, a leading barrister (female) claiming that the British state is persecuting old men and blatantly undermining the rule of law in doing so, might, to some, be considered relevant to men’s rights, even if myself and Steve Moxon are the only men’s rights bloggers to even mention it within the context of men’s rights.)
I do not support the persecution of old men. The manipulation of the rule of law by the Savile Inquisition – otherwise known as Operation Yewtree – and its attendant zealots poses a far graver threat to society than anything Jimmy Savile ever did.
Now even a deputy speaker of the House of Commons is accused of male rape. This is an unfortunate consequence of the present mania for policing all aspects of personal life under the mantra of ‘child protection’.
We have been here before. England has a long history of do-gooders seeking to stamp out their version of sexual misconduct by force of the criminal law. In the eighteenth century, the quaintly named Society for the Reformation of Manners funded prosecutions of brothels, playwrights and gay men.
In the 1880s, the Social Purity movement repeatedly tried to increase the age of consent for girls from 13 to 16, despite parliament’s resistance. At that time, puberty for girls was at age 15 (now it is 10). The movement’s supporters portrayed women as fragile creatures needing protection from men’s animal impulses. Their efforts were finally rewarded after the maverick editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, WT Stead, set up his own secret commission to expose the sins of those in high places.

A prominent barrister specialising in reproductive rights has called for the age of consent to be lowered to 13.
Barbara Hewson said in an interview that the move was necessary in the wake of the Savile scandal to end the “persecution of old men”.
She also said that complainants should no longer receive anonymity.
The NSPCC called her views “outdated and simply ill-informed” and said to hear them “from a highly experienced barrister simply beggars belief”.
Her remarks come after a number of high-profile arrests from Operation Yewtree, the police investigation into historic sexual abuse following the Savile scandal.
The arrests have included Max Clifford, Stuart Hall and Gary Glitter among others.
Isn’t it shameful that a female barrister can make such a plea, and yet when myself and my readers – all men’s rights supporters – argue that issues surrounding the age of consent should at least be discussed in the context of men’s rights, in order to stop the barbaric persecution of old men, we are effectively kicked out of the movement?
The Men’s Human Rights Movement, however, would rather get into bed with the devils in the NSPCC – a collection of pure and utter evil radical feminists, interested only in enriching themselves whilst soothing their own psycho-sexual jealousies through the persecution of old men for decades old ‘crimes’, and the promotion of medieval hysteria that leaves millions of men demonised and in fear of ruin.
