Change the law: Give anonymity to those accused of rape until they are charged.

A few days ago Sir Cliff Richard and others launched a campaign to give better protection to those falsely accused.

At the moment anyone accused of rape can have their name published in the press even if they are innocent and never charged. The allegations that they are an "alleged rapist" chase them around for the rest of their lives, with people questioning their innocence. In the age of the internet this is even worse, with the allegations being one click away. Innocent people's lives are being ruined. This has to stop. Let's change the law.
