Scots police urge change in teenage sex law

Very similar to the un-traced email that the Home Office supposedly sent to English police forces around 2008, telling them to treat underage victims as if they were consenting adults. Note that 13+ is a "category", just as in the 2003 Sexual Offences Act. Do think this kind of idea would have seemed thinkable in a society which knew that from at least 1975 immigrant gangs had been grooming, raping and prostituting schoolgirls?


The Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS), which represents the leaders of eight Scots forces, believes it is wrong to criminalise all 13 to 15-year-olds who have sex willingly.

The group wants ministers to allow police new powers to choose not to investigate cases where there is no evidence of force or exploitation.

The views of chief constables, contained in an Acpos submission to a Scottish government review, coincides with the publication of a report this week that shows British 15-year-olds are among the most sexually active in Europe.

A study, based on figures from the World Health Organisation (WHO) has revealed that more 15-year-old girls in England (40 per cent) have admitted to having sex – more than in any other of the 24 countries surveyed.

The second highest was Wales (38.5 per cent), followed by Scotland at 34 per cent.

The lowest level was in Macedonia, where only 2.7 per cent of girls admitted to having had sex by the age of 15.  Among 15-year-old boys, the highest number was in Ukraine (47 per cent), followed by England (35 per cent), with Scotland sixth at 32 per cent.

Under current guidelines in Scotland, health and social workers, teachers and children’s’ charities are obliged to tell police if they become aware that underage sex has taken place.

Police are then obliged to investigate and to send a report to the procurator fiscal, who will then decide if charges will be pressed.

In nearly every case, no further action is taken.

Now, police want inquiries to be triggered only where there was evidence of exploitation, including bribery, threats, grooming, or where alcohol or drugs were used to compromise a child’s judgment.

The Association of Chief Police Officers says: “Acpos acknowledges that this is an extremely sensitive issue and that a balance requires to be made between ensuring that children and young people have trust in professionals involved with them; not criminalising young people who engage in consensual sexual activity; protecting vulnerable children and young people who are abused; and upholding the law.” Tom Halpin, assistant chief constable of Lothian and Borders Police and Acpos spokesman on sexual offences, said: “We recognise that young people do make life choices which include full sexual relations with a partner at an age most people believe is too early.

“We don’t seek to criminalise whole sections of society but we do seek to ensure they are protected from dangerous individuals.”

Maggie Mellon of child welfare charity Children 1st said: “We are in a bit of a mess about the age of consent.

“On the one hand we are encouraging young people to practice safe sex, but on the other hand we criminalise young people for having consensual sex and accuse boys of grooming if they are found carrying a condom.

“The police don’t want to be investigating 14 and 15-year-olds for having sex because that can result in an unnecessary and damaging conviction.

“There have been horrific stories of 15-year-old girls getting pregnant by their 16-year-old boy-friends and being investigated by police. We need to be much sharper about how we handle this issue.”

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

The book has now been re-printed and customers all over the world can now buy Mohammed's Koran (the No.1 best-seller banned by Amazon).


If you wonder if the book Mohammed's Koran is for you, read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.

Amazon banned the sale of the only book on Islam that proves Islam has been a terrorist ideology since Year 1 of the Islamic calendar.  The book denounces violence and hatred, yet has been described as offensive by Amazon.  Meanwhile Amazon still sell copies of "Mein Kampf" (which advocates gassing Jews) and Amazon still sell books like "The Anarchist Cookbook" which (a bomb-making manual, the possession of which has led to terrorism charges in the UK).  Ebay has even banned the sale of used copies of Mohammed's Koran.  And from day one Google banned adverts for the book (instead the UK government spent a small fortune buying the top advertising slot to push their video begging people not to read the book).  Amazon staff are on record as saying that the order to ban the book came "from above Amazon". The propaganda from the state and the censorship from their tax-avoiding chums confirms the argument of Mohammed's Koran - the elite have knowingly invited this terrorist ideology into the West and they have sided with the terrorist ideology against the victims of terrorism.

With all this censorship you may not have heard of my new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson). It was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there until the initial print-run of 5000 books sold out a few days later. For most of the following 18 months it was the No.1 best-selling Koran.  Muslims hated this fact.

The British media never reported on the book going straight to No.1.  They only reported on the book once sales of it had been banned.
