Not everyone can be telling the truth

Some readers will have noticed, or possibly even followed, the disturbing case in Cyprus of a 19 year old British girl who was allegedly raped by up to twelve Israeli youths and yet (as things currently stand) has ended up with a conviction for making a false allegation. I need provide background [...]

Let us go forward into a brave new world

… And, yes, it’s welcome back to what some openly refer to as “Misogynists’ Corner” – viz. the sports pages of the Rust. Yesterday my papers and the media were full of the brilliant performance of one Farron Sherrock who made history of sorts by becoming the first woman to beat a man [...]
