    A sad indictment of our society that these cases are often exploited to advance a particular political agenda.
    Indeed, but in today's climate ,it comes as no surprise.
    As for me, I am just interested to hear what those who were so vocal about the relatively tame President's Club scandal, thought about this latest 'outrage'.
    So far, not much response....hmmm?

      Publius, have a look at the news coverage online or in some of the papers.

      I will certainly do so.

      Wasn't there a scandal around save the children and funding of terrorists back in the 80's.

      This is actually appalling if they lied about what they were doing.

      I wish I'd been there

      I doubt that, the age of consent in Haiti is 18, and the more serious aspects of these allegations refer to some of the prostitutes involved as being “minors”.

      I may of course be wrong and maybe you do like to play your cricket on a grass less wicket.

      As there is about the antics of a widower of a recently murdered MP.

      The paper reporting the tawdry affair was not even included in the BBC’s press review.........go figure?

      Yes, I saw that.
      Must admit, I was rather surprised by these revelations.

      I read that they were using prostitutes. Is that illegal in Haiti? Can people not use the services if prostitutes or is there something more sinister in these revelations?
      Really? A world-leading charity that is very high profile in accusing the West of exploiting poor countries has executives that exploit sex workers from those poor countries. Is that not sinister enough?

      You shouldn’t be, before his wife was an MP he stood down from a senior role in a well known charity after a number of allegations about his conduct. This was reported at the time but he was not a well known commentator for progressive values and politics.

      In the aftermath of his wife’s tragic murder, it would have been a brave media outlet that would have highlighted his previous turgid back story.....and how that played out in his relationship.

      But time is a great healer.....if you want to get on the podium, its only fair that the public know if you are (for example) a pathological sex pest.

      Everyone knows if there was any chance to have a go at the Tories you'd be all over this exploiting every last drop of the victim's misery.
