A FORMER Director of Public Prosecutions has warned that Britain could ‘live to regret’ a rush to criminalise boys after an explosion of school sex abuse claims. Former law chief Lord Macdonald issues warning over surge in school sex abuse claims | Daily Mail Online
Lord Macdonald spoke after the national police spokesman on child protection, Simon Bailey, predicted that ‘rape culture’ claims would engulf the entire education sector.
So far, more than 100 schools have been named in more than 8,000 anonymous testimonies on the Everyone’s Invited website.
Is Lord Macdonald right to suggest that there is a danger of a bandwagon effect and to warn against social media campaigns ‘that may draw in all sorts of behaviour that is obnoxious and unpleasant but not criminal’?
