    There's lots of countries that still have fucked up age of consent laws. What's your point? That it cannot be pedophilia as long as the law says it isn't?
    Would you care to explain that?
    I mean, what are the options? Raise the age of consent to 18 and criminalize all horny teenagers?
    Oh right, we're about to get a big speech about how things are done in Germany

    Psychologists define paedophilia as an attraction to pre-pubescent children. Therefore, it's very unlikely to apply to a 17 year old.

    Prince Andrew is however apparently a bit of a ephebophile.

    graduated responses are a thing, we've got 15 as the baseline but exceptions carved out when it's "said person's adopted child, stepchild or foster child, or who is entrusted to said person for education or upbringing" upping the age to 18, with assorted additional edge cases covered therein, including obviously prostitution and so forth.

    the thing i find offensive is not the age difference involved as long as it's consenting adults (yes, that include 60 year old rich men with 18-22 year old trophy wives and the like) but the complete inability of "lady" Campbell to even acknowledge the moral wrong being committed here, and then there's the princes actual interview, suffice to say it's a whopper to say the least.

    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    A hard and fast rule of prosecuting 40 year olds for statutory rape is possible if you grant exemptions for under 18s who date each other. The romeo and juliet laws do not cover every situation, but its a good concept and better than shrugging at adults who have sex with minors

    The US is obviously not the best example since its prosecutors are usually cruel and capricious, but it would be possible to have these things with a normal justice system

    Thanks for actually bothering to reply. And yeah, that is a sensible approach.

    Corbyn needs to do more in this debate. Johnson's left the door open for him a couple of times and he hasn't gone for it. Plus he needs to straighten his glasses.

    Johnson is completely failing to answer the question or come back on any points raised and just trotting out attack lines. Not sure why he hasn't been shot down by the moderator yet for it.

    Corbyn got the loudest applause after the summing up bits. Neither of them performed particularly well though - Corbyn was evasive on Brexit, Johnson's arguments lacked substance and were mainly lies.

    Sinn Feinn IS the IRA. And wow one whole ex-IRA councillor.

    Why's that? Because if the public really understood what a bunch of decadent, depraved, blooddrenched psychopaths they are they'd be guillotined?

    So by your recokning Corbyn also supports Loyalist terror groups as well, since he met politicians with links to him.

    And presumably you'll also condem Donald Trump and Prince Charles for supporting the IRA...
