    Summed it up? By lying? Do you also believe everything Donald Trump says?

    Hmmm well dodgy it seems.....

    However, to add some balance I'm sure I've told this story before. No-one ever thinks about the guy wrongly accused.... (Now this story is NOT me before you ask).

    A friend of a friend met some young girl one night. She was 17. Took her to hotel - did the deed. Next day the police are around - shes claiming rape. Looks like she got home, her parents went nuts, so this is what she told them.

    Went on for about a year. Fella lost his job, fell into depression, nearly topped himself. Of course, everyone now knew him as the rapist.

    Thing is they had no evidence. The hotel staff had seen her walking into the hotel with him no issues. In the end, the police just dropped it one day - she'd retracted her statement.

    What happened to the girl - nothing. This fella took years to get over his life being screwed up by this.

    My Daughter and her mates were in Aya Napa on a post A Level "Holiday" when this happened.

    They were only there for a week and basically after a couple of days they realised what a mistake they had made going there.

    Basically they felt unsafe pretty much all the time while in the town.

    She phoned me on the 3rd day asking me to sort flights to get them home, which I would have done if there were any flights available.

    They eventually spent the final 4 days of the Holiday in the hotel they were staying in.

    It was a good learning experience for her and her mates but there is something fundamentally wrong there. The locals are rinsing the youngsters that go there, protections are minimal, the assumptions being that anyone there is fair game.

    My feeling is that the girl involved is telling the truth, but she probably went along to some degree at the outset.

    Horrible horrible place, and our government should be getting the girl home.

    Wasn't always the case. Circa 1988, I was in the RAF and we went out to Cyprus for some air gunnery practice. I was 21 and the first time on Nissi beach was the closest I've ever come to heaven. Back then it was popular with the Scandinavians and no British apart from us. Every one was blonde and beautiful, and no it wasn't boring. It was good until the Ibiza crowd arrived in the mid nineties.

    So when the British were there, no Russians, it was fine then went downhill when the Russians arrived?

    Remind me again when CUK went downhill....

    No doubt, by minds immeasurably superior to ours, I would imagine.
