Here’s another taste of the future.
A Conservative MP has been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of rape.
The Sunday Times reported that the allegations against the former minister were made by an ex-parliamentary employee.
The Met Police said the allegations relate to four separate incidents alleged to have taken place between July 2019 and January 2020.
The Conservative Party said it takes such allegations “extremely seriously”.
The Sunday Times, which first reported the story, said the complainant alleges that the MP assaulted her, forced her to have sex and left her so traumatised that she had to go to hospital.
The Metropolitan Police said it had launched an investigation into the allegations.
“On Friday, 31 July, the Metropolitan Police Service received allegations relating to four separate incidents involving allegations of sexual offences and assault,” the force said in a statement.
“These offences are alleged to have occurred at addresses in Westminster, Lambeth and Hackney between July 2019 and January 2020.
All of this #metoo stuff – especially after the Harvey Weinstein rape hoax – has been set up as a way to punish political figures the system doesn’t like. They’ve already made it a law that you have to believe all women, so if there is anyone in the public they don’t like, they just accuse them of rape and – BOOM – they’re outta here.
As I said at the time when they convicted Harvey Weinstein of having sex with his whore girlfriends, this is going to become a major weapon. It’s one they can use on mainstream figures that they aren’t able to hit with “hate speech” or whichever other thing.
