I find the media a fickle bunch, who change their views depending on the wind direction. Tom Watson MP was seen as a hero for pursuing allegations about child abuse, but now that some of the alleged victims have had their allegations questionned, Tom is being criticised. The Police have not finished their inquiries yet and it is a bit too early for friends of alleged abusers to start demanding apologies. Because the newspapers keep going on about such stories for days on end, digging at the information, it must put the Police in a very difficult position. And it is not just newspapers, but some TV programmes as well. Let the Police complete their investigations without unhelpful media involvement and see what happens. If any cases get to court, media coverage of victims and alleged abusers, may hinder any chance of a fair trial. If politicians want to be helpful, perhaps they should pass laws that require abusers and victims to be anonymous until after the alleged abuser has been formally charged, with a court date set for a hearing. The Judge can then decide on whether identities should be revealed, to help serve fair justice. We want an independent robust free press in the UK, but they must remember that they should look to serve the public interest and not act in a way that disrupts the Police or courts.
