Galloway, christ how embarrassing. Has he actually gone completely mad then?

Ughhh, Craig Murray just named one of Assange's accusers on tv.

He named. A woman accusing another of rape. On tv.

FFS.

Shagging someone when they're asleep is, in every way, rape.


They wouldn't be asleep for very long and then have plenty of time afterwards to resist.

Pretty sure that wasn't the question.

Hold on, unless you mean that if someone initiates sex in their sleep with someone who is awake, the awake person is committing rape by not stopping them? That's not what allegedly happened with Assange of course.

Fine, the answer is no, because the offense of rape involves penetration. If you're not penetrating, you're not the rapist.

Also, Craig Murray just broke the law live on tv.

So in the episode of House where a woman has unidentified injuries (carpet burns etc), and it turns out that she'd been sleep-walking to her ex-husband's every night, the ex-husband was raping her by going along with what she was doing?

It was make-believe though, because House isn't actually a real doctor.

Allah is rubbish. I just broke sharia law live on QOL. The alleged crime was in Sweden and he named the accuser in the UK.

Ethically and morally poor though.

He's always been a little bit mad, to be fair. As a rule of thumb, if you find yourself disagreeing with Christopher Hitchens, you're wrong. That also works if you replace the word 'Christopher' with 'Peter', and 'wrong' with 'right'.

The extent to which that matters is questionable.
