Lets clear the air to begin with. This is a classic battle between the Daily Mail and the Labour party. Bottom line is to disgrace Harriet Harman. Now that is out of the way, I look at this as another case of how views on what is acceptable and what is not has changed over the years. We see this to some extent with the DLT case. (Not J.S.) Harriot Harmon joined and held key rolls in the National Council for Civil Liberties (now called Liberty). Organisations that wanted more civil rights joined and campaigned. Gay rights etc. More controversially, the The Paedophile Information Exchange, and they wanted consideration to reduce the age of consent to 10. In 2014 where every picture of a child on TV is blurry, it would be unthinkable for a legal organisation called the Paedophile Information exchange to even exist let alone join Liberty. But that was not the case in 1978. It was considered and disapproved by the NCCL but they were still affiliated as a legit organisation. Shami Chakrabarti, has already issued an apology for the links with PIE.. We are judged on today's values so she should bite the bullet and apologise for a misjudgment. But is it right to judge on yesterday's judgements today?
