Jeremy Hunt 'asked FGM survivor if she could still have orgasm'
Jeremy Hunt has been accused of asking a Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) campaigner whether “girls like you” can still have an orgasm.
Nimco Ali claimed the Health Secretary found her via a Google search and that he had no idea about FGM at the time.
The former civil servant, who is the director of the Daughters of Eve non-profit organisation, told the News Roast podcast that the pair met at his Whitehall office four years ago.
“This man is the Secretary of State for Health but he has no idea about FGM and I don’t think he even reads his briefings,” said Ms Ali, recalling her thoughts at the time.
She added that he probably got in touch after reading a newspaper article about the subject, "so then he ‘googled’ and found me."
She said: "So I got an email to say ‘will you come in and speak to the Secretary of State and I said ‘yes’ because we need data and the NHS is, like, right at the forefront.
After waiting in his office, Ms Nimco said he walked in "rolling up his sleeve, and said he just did a night shift for the hospital."
Then she said he asked: "What I really want to know Nimco, is, can girls like you have an orgasm?"
She said: It was his first direct question. My reply was: ‘Well, it depends how good you are Jeremy. Because 80 per cent of the clitoris is actually internal, but let’s move’.”
News Roast presenters Heydon Prowse and Jolyon Rubinstein called his question “disrespectful” and “crude”.
But Ms Ali replied: “I think he is privileged enough to ask those questions.”
Asked if the two then started dating, she said: “I have boundaries.”
Ms Ali went on to praise the former under secretary for public health, Jane Ellison, for her campaigning on FGM.
An FGM survivors’ ability to have an orgasm depends on the type of FGM and cutting they have suffered.
Mr Hunt’s health department has since started publishing annual statistics for FGM and the latest data revealed nearly 5,500 new cases in 2016.
Met Police inspector Allen Davis last month said the force still did not know where in the UK FGM was taking place.
The Department of Health refused to comment on Ms Ali's allegation.
PEDOPHILE SOUTH KOREAN DIPLOMAT CAUSES INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT WITH CHILE
A South Korean diplomat in Chile accused of sexually assaulting teenage girls was summoned home, Tuesday, to face questioning by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to diplomatic sources. “The diplomat returned home early this morning in accordance with the ministry’s summons,” the source said on condition of anonymity.
The diplomat, named Park Jeong-hak, was in charge of promoting K-pop at the Korean Embassy to Chile. He was accused of making improper physical contact with a 14-year-old Chilean girl in September while teaching Korean.
Park’s inappropriate actions were made public after a Chilean broadcaster aired, Sunday (local time), film of him sexually abusing an actress disguised as a teenage girl captured by a hidden camera. The broadcaster planned the program, in which it had the actress deliberately lure him, after receiving a tip-off from the parents of a victim.
After the airing of the program called “En Su Propia Trampa” (In Your Own Trap), which sparked public fury in the Latin American country, Yoon Seo-ho, a Korean immigrant who has lived in Chile for 12 years, told a CBS radio program, Tuesday, that the diplomat had been notorious for his sexual offenses even before the program was aired.
The diplomat was also accused of raping a 12-year-old girl as well as sexually harassing the Chilean wife of a Korean immigrant, Yoon said. [Korea Times]

EUROPE'S HOLY WAR: Continent to be 'DESTROYED by merciless RELIGIOUS conflict'
The coming year and beyond will most likely see bloodshed across the continent as a battle between cultures turns violent.
The prediction of an impending religious war has been made by numerous experts, from the Dalai Lama to the western world's most influential think tanks.
Warnings of religious warfare across the secular continent have come as early as 2006 – years before the migration crisis even began.
American think-tank, the Washington Institute, published a shocking report stating a religious war is looming.
It said: "The Crusades began with a rumour of defilement. In 1095, Pope Urban II denounced the Muslims as 'a race utterly alienated from God'.
"This is exactly how Islam's leaders are demonising the West in the 21st."
It came after millions of Muslims took part in angry protests when a Danish publisher printed cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammed.
It argued that the at some point "the crusade" will begin, but this time it "would be a Muslim one" as "its advance scouts are already at work in Europe".
Other think tanks, including European and US-based ones, have also discussed growing Muslim populations in Europe in relation to religious intolerance.
But some of the most explosive warnings have come from prominent religious leaders.
Just days ago, a high-profile Italian archbishop warned that his country and the rest of Europe will "soon be Muslim".
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, the Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, apocalyptically predicted the mass displacement of Christian heritage Europeans due to declining birth rates and less public engagement with the church.
Speaking to Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, he said: "Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.
"In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity."
In May, the Dalai Lama – himself a refugee and known for his charitable and humanitarian views – told a German news outlet that there are "too many" refugees in Europe.
The spiritual leader said the continent and Germany "cannot become an Arab country", adding refugees should only be "admitted temporarily".
And a year ago, Moscow's chief Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt wrote in the Telegraph that "we must realise that we have now entered a religious war".
Their comments came as Europe was hit by the effects of a migration crisis that is on a scale never seen before.
In 2015 alone, well over a million economic migrants and refugees flooded into the continent from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Somalia.
Critics of the open-door policy have repeatedly lashed out at European governments, arguing the scale of the crisis have stoked religious and racial tensions.
Across Europe, right-wing parties – particularly those with unfavourable views of Islam – have seen their popularity grow.
In France, the far-right Front National has seen its support triple in five years.
And in Germany, which bore the brunt of refugee arrivals, polls suggest those intending to vote for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) are at their highest levels ever.
In May 2015, the political party declared in its very own manifesto that "Islam is not part of Germany".
