IT IS crucial that the Welsh public gets to know exactly what the allegations of sexual misconduct against Welsh Assembly Government minister Carl Sargeant really were for us to believe in a just and fair democracy.

Ideally, we would also know who made the allegations (as things stand, we don’t even know if they consisted of any males or were all females) but this is unlikely because anonymity will be guaranteed for life to the complainants.

Josef K in Kafka’s The Trial knew his fate from the moment he was “apprehended”.

On the eve of K.’s thirty-first birthday, two men arrive at his apartment. He has been waiting for them, and he offers little resistance – indeed the two men take direction from K. as they walk through town. K. leads them to a quarry where the two men place K’s head on a discarded block. One of the men produces a double-edged butcher knife, and as the two men pass it back and forth between them, the narrator tells us that “K. knew then precisely, that it would have been his duty to take the knife… and thrust it into himself.” He does not take the knife. One of the men holds his shoulder and pulls him up and the other man stabs him in the heart and twists the knife twice. K.’s last words are: “Like a dog!”.

If this sinister and deeply disturbing Labour Party farce of Stalinist subterfuge and despicable double-speak doesn’t end soon then we can all look forward to dying like dogs guilty because someone anonymously said we were.
