Ridicule as police say kissing under the mistletoe without consent is 'rape'

Police have warned Christmas party goers to obtain consent before kissing under the mistletoe otherwise they may be guilty of rape.

The advice came in a tweet, since deleted, by the Police Service of Northern Ireland which has been criticised for “trivialising” sexual violence.

I notice that the PSNI is blamed but surely a tweet is sent by an individual? Who was the moron who did it? Anyway, it comes to something when that police force is obviously riddled with PC. Time to sack the Chief Constable, I'd say.
