Now the licence fee causes such resentment among the public, you have to wonder why they don't just scrap it and fund the BBC from general taxation.

At least let's have a trial of the facts even if he's not fit to stand before a judge.

Well there is nothing like traditional family values...in Oz around 10% of women were reportedly abused as a minor - most by family members...families are fundamentally unhealthy

aye skully and agree re the sadness and despair that arises in all of this...a significant minority of humans (more blokes than women) are vile.

My sister is a 'trick cyclist' whose private practice is in the northern 'burbs. All her patients are women. Most have a history of sexual abuse when they were kids. She has been doing this work for over 30 years.

This is one reason why I get antsy every now and then about the grosser forms of objectification here by the likes of Nigel

I don't doubt any of that for a minute, h. It was more the part of your post that I quoted. Were you referring to families in general or just those of the victims? It wasn't necessarily clear to me in the form it was posted.

I think the nuclear family is a relatively recent invention that lacks the social capital and checks and balances that other forms of family have...eg grandmother and the single aunt living within the same household as well as extended community keeping watch over littlies.

Maybe these godawful things still happened in previous days at a similar scale to now...who knows as there was no avenue for complaint.

I blame i-Gen's ridiculously easy access to porn. Male dominance (sometimes bordering on violence) is the prevailing theme of 99% of porn.

Good result:

http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/paedophile-brother-francis-cable-jailed-over-sexual-abuse-of-marist-brothers-students-20150618-ghr5hu.html

One of the state's worst Catholic school paedophiles, who brutally raped and assaulted at least 17 vulnerable boys over the course of 15 years, is set to die in jail after being sentenced to a maximum of 16 years' jail.

The victims of Francis William Cable and their relatives let out a cheer of vindication as the 83-year-old was sentenced in the Downing Centre District Court on Thursday.

Good chance he'll get the crap beaten out of him and anally raped with a lamp while he's there.

So justice enough.
