I guess everybody who was clamouring for the identity of the Tory MP who was accused of rape earlier this year is happy that they didn’t get what they wanted.
But here’s a thing:
Police say the allegations against a former minister did not meet the “evidential test”.
Haven’t we heard that line too many times, in connection with rape investigations that should have been taken all the way?
And also, considering the time of year, is it possible that this has been cleared off the decks because nobody in authority wants it dragging on into a new year?
There’s no evidence to support those suggestions here.
I simply have a doubt about whether there’s a reason for that.
