And the same Scroats who can't do 'time' due to their age.
The six foot six fourteen stone schoolboy cannot be named for legal reasons.

Yet if some bloke gets accused of a sexual incident even innocent his name get splashed all over the papers. Then when proven innocent the tar still sticks!!

I'm with backpacker on this one.

Why can a woman scream rape but not be named while her accuser is named.

It gets to court and it is then reported she has done this a number of times before but the court wont allow her to be named. However, the fella has had his name dragged through the gutter, probably lost his job and any family he may have had.

Yes, I do feel sorry for those women that are raped and they shouldnt feel that they have to "hide it" because of those that want to "get at" someone.

The removal of failure as a concept and its replacement by deferred success. As an invigilator of exams during RNR qualifying courses I have been ordered by officers to "give the candidates every opportunity to pass". When candidates subsequently didn't pass, it wasn't their performance under scrutiny, but mine. I'd obviously not given tham all the necessary opportunities (aka answers); the stigma of their failure would mentally scar them for the rest of their days, and it would be all my fault!

The removal of competitive sports for kids - it creates "winners and loser". They should have played for some of the football teams I turned out for, but we were always there the following week.
