    (This is being reported in some places as "Two Tory MPs allegedly raped male Labour MP", but only one Tory MP was involved)

    Whether or not you think we should be more stringent about "innocent until proven guilty", or that some allegations (such as fleetingly touching someone's knee) should not be classed as sexual assault, this flushing out of Parliament is good news.

    MPs dealing in sexual favours is just another form of corruption.

    MPs are already **** enough at their jobs, the least they can do is not be sex criminals on top of that.

    I don't know the details, but is it possible that the possible use of the date rape drug refers to 'chemsex' or something that was discussed by a Tory MP (same guy?) with the Psychoactive Substances Bill? Otherwise, it seems incredible we haven't heard about this before.

    Fortunately in this country then we respect due process and people are adjudged innocent until proven guilty.

    An allegation is simply that without evidence and needs to be properly investigated to assess whether any crime has been committed. It doesn't mention rape in that article. Where does it mention sexual favours?

    You seem to think if you say something where you have no evidence then it is true, but then thats you all over as per your previous threads. Dont let the truth get in the way .

    The police should investigate and assess whether there is actual evidence.
    I doubt Parliament is any worse than any other walk of life with this sort of thing and if you think so , then you are even more naive than I thought.
