An interesting dilemma

Mr Bretherton, who works for law firm Slaughter and May (actually, S&M themselves insist he left in 2001), has denied the accusations he raped the woman at his flat on their fourth date, claiming any intercourse that night was consensual.

The alleged victim said she went to Mr Bretherton’s flat in Kensington, west London, after a date in May 2008.
Earlier, the court heard that the alleged victim brought the claim in 2018 after reading about Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, 10 years after her alleged ordeal.

Mr Bretherton, who married Ms Keothavong in February 2015, denies two counts of rape.

The trial continues.

The dilemma is, well, is this a glorious justification of the Me Too movement? Past injustice is being flushed out of the hidden darkness by those who were brave enough to stand up and encourage?

Or is this an invention triggered by the Me Too movement?

Comments off for obvious reasons – that last three word sentence of the quote.
