This is utterly evil

This is far worse than "Sarah's Law". That would be bad enough, given the manifest inability of the British public to behave sensibly in almost every conceivable scenario - I am fairly convinced that all that publishing the names and addresses of people on the sex offenders register would do is drive them underground. And, of course, it is not as everybody on that particular register is a middle aged man into raping toddlers - no, of course not.

Young men with a slightly unwise choice of their Friday night shag; people who have accepted cautions (Ed notes: yes, I know it is an old link - but what about the 6,200 people who were cautioned for offences not involving children or rape? What exactly did they do? And what the fuck is happening with people 'cautioned' for rape? Cautions for murder and high treason, next, will we? This is taking the "Sanctioned Detection Rate" culture beyond the fucking piss into lah-lah land); and shortly people in possession of "extreme pornography", victims of yet-another knee-jerk reaction from politicians faced with a distraught mother. (Ed notes, again: You probably wouldn't be surprised at the Google Ads "sponsored links" results for the search for the link for the legislation - please sing along with me, "The Internet is for Porn, the Internet is for porn ...")

No, you can argue whether or not Sarah's Law would be a bad thing - I think it is. But everybody who would be targeted as a result of that suggestion would have been convicted (or, it has to be said, accepted a caution) and would therefore, as far as we can trust our legal system, have admitted or been found guilty of a sex-related offence. This is much worse. This is apparently allowing access to the sort of material released on an Enhanced (i.e. child or vulnerable adult protection) disclosure. Which, even when given to sensible people with no particular axe to grind (and no suggestions of kiddy-fiddling) has caused stupid and hideous problems.

Teachers, particularly, seem to be vulnerable to false allegations of sexual impropriety but it can strike anywhere. So their details will now become public - most teachers I know are ex-directory, try not to live within their school catchment area, etc, just so they can avoid the sort of petty harassment the semi-feral youth would inflict on somebody who has dared to give them homework, or a detention, or failed an exam, or "dissed 'em". I am not saying, in any way, that allegations should not be properly investigated but, if that happens, and there is insufficient evidence for a charge or, even more emphatically, if someone is charged and found not guilty in court, why should that be used by the state to ruin the rest of their lives?

The Chief Constable of West Mercia police, who should know better, is reported as saying:

They talk through this and the subject is party to this, to get a third-party assurance to the clean bill of health which he claims to have.


Wow. What an introduction to state control of our relationships. Not only can we not have a drink without official permission but they are now licencing every snog or grope. What a bunch of statist interfering cunts. And all, ALL, they could possibly be "assuring", is that he - and it is 'he', isn't it - hasn't been caught. These fuckers should be taken out and shot.

I leave the final comment on the stupidity of it all to the police's own leaflet:

Even if a subject doesn't have a record for child sex offences it doesn't mean that he or she is not potentially a risk.

Duh!

Ask yourself to what purpose would a government have with the Sex Offenders list? Homosexuals don't go on it. George Michael hanging around toilets for sex is not on it. If he were straight he would.
You can only become a gender- addict if you were sexually violated as a child. Sex has to have developed some new meaning to prove your self-worth.
The sending people out from prison un-cured simply drives the sheeple masses into roars of indignation distracted away from those who habitually use rentboys in Pink hotels.
Now, we are informed, if you have any doubt about the one heterosexual man on the council estate who bothers to take some single mother's children to the park, you may apply to see if he is on the register. Job done. No men on the estate and lots of growing up boys who do not know if they're Gay, Bi or straight. "Come to me my son..." Anthony Morley eat you heart out.

Frankly, that is complete and utter bollocks. Not that I have much time for Tatchell (another ferkacking Aussie import) but the fact they need to outrage (sorry) about what you are claiming doesn't exist?

WTF is a 'gender-addict'? Some sort of mad political correctness guru running around Manchester ripping the signs off of tpoilet doors? As my, admittedly barking mad, Latin teacher used to say, "Nouns have gender, people have sex!"

if you were sexually violated as a child.

Clearly, that sort of experience is more likely to damage you than to be 'character building'. But, not always - see Sameem Ali's story.

No - your logic is missing several steps - the justifiable conclusion is 'no men taking other people's kids to the park'.

and lots of growing up boys who do not know if they're Gay, Bi or straight. "Come to me my son..." Anthony Morley eat you heart out.

Despite the return of Mandleson from the sewers of Brussels, I think you are exaggerating (for comic effect?) the 'Pink Grip of Death' on the levers of power.
