The latest group to come out in defence of the ostensibly openly paedophiliac “Feminist Declaration” which was signed up to last year by a number of Scottish organisations is the “Rainbow Greens”.

The furore over a declaration signed by a number of Scottish organisations which appears to clearly call for the age of sexual consent to be reduced to 10 continues today, with a couple of appallingly biased articles in the Scotsman and the Times which attempt to use the controversy to attack both the Alba Party (as a distraction from its powerful key manifesto release on women’s rights) and this website.

The clue is somewhat in the name.

If you still can’t see it, you’re probably never going to wake up.

But have a little think about those highlighted words this morning anyway.

It’s not a cult, though. The whole thing can be seen here.

It’s probably past time that we put this all in one post for easy reference.
