"Right Honourable"



When the "Right Honourable Member" resigns due to touching a journalist's knee, despite being involved in the expenses scandal and a drunk driver on earlier occasions, it seems that the only reasonable response is "One down, several to go..."

I do wonder what is going on. Your Julia Hartley Brewer woman was quite astounded. And after all, it was her knee that became the centre of "Knee Gate". The trouble with Britain, is dangerous dog syndrome. And what that does is deflect attention away from the main issue.

And its not all about "sex". Its about "gender". The debate has now moved in favour of those who dismiss the idea of harassment as so much political correctness. Its not about knees. Its about something far more fundamental but we need to sharpen the focus on what its really about.

There is a law in the UK that bans teachers from having relationships with their pupils. Even if the pupil is 18 and the teacher only a couple of years older. The point of is, that it recognises that teachers are in a unique position to influence those in their charge. Perhaps, with careful thinking and debate, we could extend that rule to Parliament and the work place.
