The Jeremy Vine Show today at 12

Andrew Taylor is appearing on the Jeremy Vine Show today at 12. It’s BBC Radio 2.

I am discussing the comments made by My Justice Hayden in the Court of Protection this week when he said that it was a fundamental right for a man to have sex with his wife, as well as the fundamental right of the State to monitor it, in the context of a woman who has been married for 20 years to her husband, and where her deteriorating health has meant that it is thought that she no longer has capacity to consent.

The judge has attracted criticism for his choice of words, with some accusing him of legitimising rape.
