KEVIN MAGUIRE'S VERDICT.
DAVID Cameron has asked the right questions but failed to come up with the answers.
Women Labour MPs who have long campaigned for legal changes to improve conviction rates wanted to know what he'd actually do.
The "review" he offered in place of firm proposals led some to wonder if he were playing politics with a sensitive issue.
After all, he opposed collecting routine DNA samples that catch sex attackers. One of his shadow cabinet has defended existing laws. And if school sex education is to be compulsory to teach No Means No, how could parents exempt their kids from what's supposed to be mandatory?
Rape is a heinous crime and Cameron's sincerity is not in doubt.
But the manner of his speech suggested politics were involved.
