I saw her testimony and she's either telling the truth or very good at acting. The issue is how is anybody supposed to know which? There's a significant chance she's telling the truth, but if what she says happened is all there is to go on, then it isn't enough. The alternative is that we allow serious allegations, life destroying allegations, to be accepted as factual on just the alleged victim's testimony and no further witnesses or evidence.

See the case of Liam Allan, a man who was well on his way to prison for alleged sexual assault charges, because the 'victims' testimony was so convincing. Luckily for him, new evidence that completely exonerated him was found in time, but it highlights the dangers of believing a woman, or any victim of alleged sexual assault, by default. It gives too much power to those who are capable of doing that type of manipulation.

It does mean that sometimes genuine victims, and Dr Ford may be one, will not get justice due to the lack of evidence for their case but that's the reality of how these things should be handled. We should never lower the bar.
