Firstly, the labour opposition need to listen carefully to what he said, in context. And furthermore, his mentioned slashing of sentencing was only a proposal that looked at all crimes regarding sentencing. It didn't specifically target rape laws in any way. I'm friggin' tired of vested interests portraying/interpreting data how it suits agendas etc.
Clarkes thankless task was ironically inherited by the massive financial failings of the last government. I'm not a Tory sympathizer by any means, as I think they're all a bunch of corporate, freedom sucking twats whoever you vote for. But they ARE the lesser evil at this time, so I'll continue to play my chess game accordingly.
