Must not praise marriage

The judge chairing the public inquiry into undercover police who had sex with their activist targets has caused an outcry by saying that officers were less likely to enter illicit relationships if they were happily married.

Sir John Mitting’s “old-fashioned” views angered those who were duped into relationships, marriage and even having children with police officers who infiltrated the environmental and animal rights protest movements. His comments, and wider unease over his handling of the inquiry, are likely to lead to a boycott of proceedings by victims.

The inquiry has already cost more than £9 million but is not expected to hear any evidence until next year. It was ordered in 2014 by Theresa May as home secretary, but has been beset by delays.

Do I understand this correctly? The officers having sex with those they're investigating is generally considered to be wrong. (Makes sense.) But suggesting a method that has historically proven effective at reducing such behavior is also considered to be wrong?!?

Is that really what's going on here?

I'm so glad I don't make a living by writing satire. There is no way I could keep up with the Left.

Surely the only real question is whether the statement is verifiably true, or not.
If true - you can't complain about facts.
If false - you can complain that the investigation is not fact-based.
