The Premier League club refusing to suspend a player arrested on suspicion of multiple rapes has been accused by a frontbench MP of putting female staff and supporters at risk. Jess Phillips, the Shadow Home Office Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding, denounced the team’s “horrible” decision not to axe the international pending the outcome of a police investigation. Phillips accused the club of hiding behind a “dangerous precedent” set by the High Court during the Sir Cliff Richard privacy case that all but blocked those arrested, even for serious crimes, from being named publicly. And, ahead of the imminent election of a new Prime Minister, she called for a change to the law to close the “loophole” that ruling created. Accusing the arrested player’s club of not having “acted in the best interests” of staff and supporters, she said: “You do have a responsibility as an employer – you just do. And to pretend otherwise is horrible.” 'It sends a dreadful message' … [Read more...] about Premier League club refusing to suspend footballer accused of rape ‘sending out dreadful message’

Dear Bel, My now husband and I had a three-month affair in early 2020 when he was engaged with a two-year-old daughter. I’d been through a divorce, an abusive relationship, then a brief relationship with an alcoholic and, when we met, Bob and I felt instant attraction. We talked for hours; he was so kind and caring. I’d never had an affair before, but had the selfish view that I’d met the man for me —which I’m ashamed to admit. Bob told me his relationship was toxic, with separate beds and interests and arguments. I said I wouldn’t be ‘the other woman’, so he must choose. Bob worried about not seeing his daughter if they split. But he insisted he just wanted to be together and when Covid hit we shared my home. It was hard for his parents, as he had been with his previous partner for eight years and they were used to having their grandchild to stay. I became pregnant in April 2020 —unplanned but we were happy, albeit terrified of what people would think. I’d already … [Read more...] about BEL MOONEY: Why can’t my in-laws forgive me for being the other woman?
