    What I would like to know, is why is all this stuff suddenly all coming to light, a lot is supposed to have happened over 30 years ago, it must have been known about 20/30 years ago and they all have been well known, someone else besides Lord McAlpineis going to be badly hurt, so this has to be done very carefully as anyone with a grudge, real or imagined might come along and totally ruin some innocent person’s life.

    Have a listen to The World at One on the i-player (or listen again, or whatever it’s called). Long interview with McAlpine, and with his solicitor. They are going after everybody. The BBC will settle today, it is hoped. ITV (This Morning, Schofield) are also in their sights.

    Monbiot has apologised, but the solicitor seemed to suggest that ‘a settlement’ would be negotiated anyway. No doubt the apology will reduce the size of said settlement.

    La Bercow was also mentioned. She has not yet apologised, apparently. Settlement will also be required from her, it would seem.

    After that, they have a long list of Twitter and Internet accusers, and they will be going after all of them.

    As I turned on the radio (BBC) this afternoon old muther Karney, on the World at One, was just finishing a piece about Mc Alpive and she said, and I quote:

    “We asked the BBC for a comment, but no one was available to speak to us”


    Thay are so twited up with their own utter BS that it makes me wonder what kind of logic does socialism operate under now?

    I hope his solicitor pursues everyone – indeed he has no choice.

    Thanks for the support, Sandra. All thoughtful and moral people must now come together to end this nightmare of accusatory abuse. The allegations have nothing to do with me at all or indeed with any member of my familee.

    However, I feel it is best that we should reach a settlement with the BBC without going to a libel court and having to listen to any long-winded QC questioning. We do want to heal wounds and mend the broken fabric of OUR society after all.

    One of the women, who was aged 17 at the time alleged that Mr Travis had invited her into his studio in 1977 and put his hand up her skirt. ”

I’m not saying this sort of conduct is right and proper, but the police/whoever is behind this accusation need to get real and put this into perspective. What Saville is accused of is in a totally different league. On a catastrophic scale that muslim cleric and DLT are poles apart yet the cleric gets protected! The sooner this nonsense is dropped and DLT gets back on the air the better .

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
