The more that comes out about this it appears that it has so much in common with the Jimmy Savile scandal. Basically everyone knew and did nothing. Surely this has to be the reason that all these celebs are rushing forward now to play the victim. Seems to me that the very same people were the enablers.

Harvey Weinstein's Personal Assistant was 'forced to clean semen and pick up used condoms'
It's almost as cloying as all those randomers rushing forward to tell everyone about their 20/20 hindsight.

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

It looks as if Weinstein-type allegations have now reached Switzerland.

Rape-accused Oxford professor Tariq Ramadan 'questioned by police in Paris'

"The prominent Swiss Islam academic was summoned for questioning with Paris judicial police and taken into custody "as part of a preliminary inquiry in Paris into rape and assault allegations", the source said, confirming a report by RTL radio. ... Prof Ramadan also faces accusations from four Swiss women who say he made sexual advances to them when they were studying under him as teenagers in Geneva."

Umm, isn't that what 'hook-ups' are all about?

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan's ex manager has committed suicide. Somehow I doubt that this will McGowan much pause. (I don't find her credible.)

Rose McGowan's ex-manager kills herself: Family of Jill Messick, who represented the actress when she was 'raped' by Weinstein, say she took her own life after being 'slandered' into the scandal

'This comes after the January 30 release of McGowan's book, Brave, which claims Messick did little to help her after she confided in her about the alleged attack by Weinstein. ...

The family went on to say that having her name wrapped up in allegations of sexual misconduct against McGowan, allegedly perpetrated at the hands of Weinstein and by implication with her aid, was too much for Messick, who 'was just starting to get her life back on track' after suffering a manic episode five years ago.

'What makes Rose’s inaccurate accusations and insinuations against Jill ironic was that she was the first person who stood up on Rose’s behalf, and alerted her bosses to the horrific experience which Rose suffered,' the family added. ...

Following the meeting, Rose told Jill what had happened — that she made the decision to remove her clothes and get in the hot tub with him — a mistake which Rose immediately regretted. Rose never once used the word rape in that conversation. '

Whilst on the topic of sexual harassment and charities, I wonder how long before the press realise that their darling Brendan Cox fits very nicely into this theme.

More allegations. It would seem numerous Oxfam (tax funded) employees enjoy the services of underage prostitutes in the third world.

But inequality, yeah?

Funny thing, when a group of Tory MPs were being discussed in this thread I distinctly remember certain posters banging on about them being only allegations and whining about “witch hunts”. More than a little hypocritical.

I read this morning that the Brendan Cox allegations have been hurriedly taken down from the Mail website as they have turned out to be untrue. M’Learned Friends are involved, no doubt we’ll see a retraction in due course. It’s standard Mail practice to put said retraction on something like page 74 under an ad for pile ointment.

Still up. And so is this one.

Save the Children executive resigns after complaints

Perhaps someone should have told him that if you use your wife's murder as a platform to spout virtue signalling leftie shite then at some point you have to expect some sort of scrutiny.

Oxfam faces losing funding as crisis grows over abuse claims

Good. It's about time Oxfam is exposed for what it is - social engineering with political motivations pretending to be a charity.

Quick, pass the smelling salts - I agree with Donald Trump!

So DT is basically twisting the subject back onto hisself as usual. A penchant for certain activities involving call girls doesn't seem to have affected his career, yet!

And why would a report from 2015 be gone, when one from 2018 was wrong? (And the "still up" one you did (could) not link?)

You're doing it again. Yeah, yeah, I got it, it's a forum, it's meant to be missleading and not informative, I sound like marton (not the worst way to sound, LOL).

But if you keep doing it - I can keep pointing it out
