    Taking Haskell out of the equation at the moment because its way off - a nonce could be the rapist of a 3yr old child, or an 80 yr old pensioner. Or indeed anything in between. Age of the victim or perpetrator is irrelevent. And ANY offence of a sexual nature would also qualify the nonce tag. I absolutely did NOT call Haskell or anyone a paedophile. You choose to use his age at the time as a defence. It just so happens that they were schoolkids. It was yourself that brought his rather delightful history into it. Not me!

    I get this - I get the lighter side of it. But you gotta look at the way things are these days - with historical 'events' being investigated and prosecuted. And I have to say, yep we all did rubbish things in our early years, but now there are cases of minors being prosecuted and convicted for abuse / rape. And lets not get into the whole Jimmy Saville, Gary Glitter and Rolf Harris thing...... Historical cases ever day of the week. If any schoolkid did what Haskell did today, there would me more to it than this conversation 10 years later. Just saying.

    I'm massively sleep deprived from law school entrance exams right now, this thread is a manifestation of my delirium, isn't it? It has to be!

    At last, the voice of reason! It kills me when people think they're untouchable! NEWSFLASH - they're not!

    Yeah it has spontaneously combusted somewhat! And got off the subject. Just a question, is there like a prize for ''thread of the year'? I mean, is that an actual thing?
