    Indeed they have decided, though I see no evidence that this decision has been reached because the Labour party is involved. Practically no news outlet has reported on it, and those that have gave it a sentence or two at most. There just isn't any substance to go on here.

    Allegedly assaulted. Again, there's only been an accusation, with no proof given. Or are you saying we should accept this accusation without any proof? Guilty until proven innocent?
    This is not about legal “proof”, there can’t be a court case, the complainant is dead. It makes a change from the other historic sex abuse cases, I suppose, where the abuser is dead, but is still indicative of justice not being served. Jimmy Saville, (guilty until proven innocent too?) this, in both cases no closure, no justice. Offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice.

    This needs to be aired, given publicity. And the decision not to do so is an editorial decision.

    You say politics has nothing to do with this

    I say that the journalistic left is selective in its moral outrage, as are you. You may never have voted Labour but are of the left. Don’t try and deny it.
What's the best type of cheese?
