perhaps you should say if thats not child abuse I odnt know what is, because what you have decribed in your post is certainly not paedophiliaNo, suing is not proof of anything, but not suing can be a useful way of keeping the lid on such allegations, as all good lawyers know. If you sue, you end up in the court being interrogated under oath by clever barristers who take no prsioners. So don't sue. It helps. And that nothing came out does not mean there is no substance to the allegations. Here in Britain we know all about political cover-ups for. There was Lord Boothby's gay affairs in which he attended parties organised by the Kray twins. Both the Tories and Labour colluded in keeping the lid on that one, each party for its own rather mucky motives.
The RAP report seems pretty conclusive to me, and we have yet to hear of any of those apparently quoted that their quotes were fabrications. For me the killer detail is the Lib press office statement amounting to 'all he did was smack a few bottoms'. If that's not paedophilia, I don't know what is.
