Max Clifford Accuses Former Tory Minister Says Alan Clark Interfered With Underage Girls

This explosive video from a few years ago has re-surfaced on the internet. He who knows where all the bodies are buried, the tabloid publicist Max Clifford, names Alan Clark as one of the alleged Tory paedophiles. Boasting  about how he made the Harkesses a lot of money – Valerie the then 57-year-old wife of James Harkess, her daughters Josephine, 34 sister Alison, 36 – for their tale of the seduction of all three by Clark:

“The only slightly serious side about it was he’d actually interfered with those girls from the age of fourteen.”

Clifford goes on to boast that: “I’ve got all the evidence. I’m the one who’s hidden it from the world. I know where everything is and the proof is”Words he may come to regret…

Will this appear in the tabloids? Don’t count on it, Max is close to editors. He trades stories with them, suppressing stories about a clients who wants to keep secrets for a stories about clients who wants the limelight. Max has plenty he wants to keep hidden…
