    He’ll be needing a good PR man to spin this for him. Can I suggest McBride?

    If it is him and he is guilty, a plea bargain could be interesting……

    This should be interesting

    Since he claims to have concealed these offences on numerous occasionshe’ll be charged on an equivalent number of counts;unless he turns QE.

        I think torture is appropriate in this instance and I would definitely turn a blind eye.

      The Criminal law is clear on that:- those who ‘conceal’ such evidence are equally as guilty for the acts of others which they have concealed – as co-conspirators.

    According to the Guardian he’s suspected of ‘sexual offences’.

    So when he said a month ago he’s been inundated with celebrities’ calls, they must have been ringing to give HIM advice.

    Hehe

    bejesus maloney says:

    Logical. He started out as a cub-reporter and has used those contacts to start-up as a media-consultant. All his working life has revolved around knowing things, gossip, tittle-tattle, pubs, parties, nod-nod’s, perhaps even handshakes. People in media etc., can’t function otherwise, it’s the fuel that fires their income. I’ve always said this, the media and the cops have known most of this for years, but for whatever reason – perhaps no hard evidence that would stand in court – they’ve done nothing. People like this are in a position not only to ‘help’ stars, snouts, clients (fill-in the applicable) but (slanderous statement coming!) but to blackmail them, too. “I’ll pay you 100,000 to keep me out of the papers” can easily turn into “I’ll take 100,000 to keep you out of the papers”. Ahem… Well, try proving it, mmm? This means Clifford, if he was milking the system, is now caught between 2 fires, he’s been paid to ‘help’ his clients …but can’t. If I was him I’d be checking m’ kneecaps.

    I suppose the threat of litigation has kept it covered up over the years, that doesn’t wash though if plod has finally got its arse into gear.

      Loopy Lou says:

      If you are suggesting that the Police have been sitting on loads of crime files for years without doing anything about them I think it is extremely unfair of you to suggest they now arrest everyone .

      After all they have had a twenty percent year on year funding cut .

      How can they reasonably be expected to deal with all of this ?

        Piers and Max sitting up a tree..... says:

        They haven’t been sat on files, they never opened any to sit on.

        They just turned a blind eye because it was ‘complicated’.

    As Scumbucks agrees to pay at least £20m in tax we should acknowledge the input of Margaret Hodge

      but she did FUCK ALL with regard to the allegations of abuse in Islington’s children’s homes, shortly after which Hodge resigned. … and this thread is about Clifford & sexuakl abuse not Fuck-da-Bucks

    Tell me again officer who is this person making allegations against me ?

    I do not know anyone by that name I think .

    Do you have any photographs of this person to show me to help my fading memory .

    Was it 1964 or 1968 you are talking about Officer .

    Did this thing allegedly happen on a Sunday morning or a Tuesday night ?

    Was it raining at the time ?

    I cannot remember anything officer . If you can give me some more information officer I may be able to help you .

    If you can let me know what I was supposedly wearing at the time that would help too officer.

    It was such a long time ago you are asking about . Are you sure I was where you say I was because I am not .

    WhoMaxedMeOut .. says:

    I believe that the the guy arrested this morning, in respect of the ‘J.Savile and Others’ investigation, should immediately make contact with Max Clifford, who is very adept at spinning and providing excellent cover stories… He’s a true pro and THE Guru to the Gurus.

    The guy had better hurry though, as there is already a que, a mile long, outside of Max’s house, of celebs and other low-life, banging on Max’s door wanting to be let in.

    It brings tears to ones eyes, to think that such innocents is being badgered and bullied about their past lives and how Max would no doubt put it … ‘young men in the full flood of their youth, being pilloried for just playing at, ‘boys being boys’.

    Such a sham .. Ooops sorry shame …. : (

    roger says:

    This arrest raises a lot of questions:
    The old one about the pre-dawn raid, for an alleged offence in 1977?. The police use this Gestapo tactic to overpower a person mentally, the old response about destroying evidence is a bit thin after a 35 delay.
    Why did they take away ‘evidence’ in the form of computer equipment, I doubt if he had a computer in 1977, just trawling?
    A lot of people can’t even remember 1977, let alone who they had sex with, yet the law has elevated the victim evidence to a high level even without other evidence. Proving a negative, anyone?
    The use of police bail is a way to get round the 36 hour arrest rule, surely it is better to refuse bail and wait for a complete release without charge.
    Can anyone explain the new caution, how can one know in the present what one may need to say in the future in a court without even being charged.?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
