Faulty assumptions underpin Sexual Violence Bill

Filed under: Sex Abuse / CYF — JohnPotter @ 2:04 pm Mon 21st June 2021

My wife (Professor Felicity Goodyear-Smith) had an article published today on The Daily Blog.

The post begins:

The Sexual Violence Bill, currently before Parliament, looks to increase convictions by effectively revoking the defendant’s right to silence, and prohibiting types of evidence tending to indicate innocence. As an academic, qualified forensic physician, and expert witness in sexual cases (for both sides), I am concerned by the rationale for this bill.

Read the rest here:


  1. Near all of the nations barristers, the law society, telling the government this is an unsafe and unworkable law yet still they proceed.

    Having a man or a woman get off a charge is unpleasant to deal with. But locking up someone who is not guilty re horrifically repugnant.

    Who wrote this law?

    The final vote should not have to follow party lines.

  2. Next valid question is : Why Western governments , the big capital and their lackeys support and finance this devastating moral and ethical chaos ?
