 George Galloway pushes the toothpaste back into the tube: rape news updateONE day on from his good sex guide to Julian Assange, George Galloway is pushing the toothpaste back into the tube. Having defined what is and what is not rape for the slack-jawed masses and put the allegations against Assange in the box marked “bad manners – must says please and thank you”, Galloway now adds:

“No never means yes and non-consensual sex is rape. There’s no doubt about it and that has always been my position. But, if my remarks on the podcast need clarification, I am happy to do that. Julian Assange, let’s be clear, has always denied the allegations. And this has all the hallmarks of a set-up. I don’t believe, from what we know, that the Director of Public Prosecutions would sanction a prosecution in Britain. What occurred is not rape as most people understand it. And it’s important to note that the two women involved did not initially claim it.”

So. Unless you quickly say publicly it was rape, it’s not rape? More facts to follow…
