Beeb Cliff Spin Mystery

Earlier today, the BBC’s “head of newsgathering” sought to counter speculation about how the Beeb managed to get camera crews down to Cliff Richard’s apartment in time to film the police walking in:

This afternoon, South Yorkshire Police released this statement:

“When a media outlet contacted SYP with information about an investigation, we took the decision to work with them in order to protect the integrity of that investigation.

“Since the search took place a number of people have contacted the police to provide information and we must acknowledge that the media played a part in that, for which we are grateful.”

‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello, what’s all this then?

    Lasses seemed to like Harry Webb, the fellas weren’t too chuff with him that’s going back years, still in those days there weren’t many British pop singers, he aped Elvis Presley as did quite a few others, personally I didn’t think he could sing then and still don’t think he can sing now.

    What have we here then?

    “South Yorkshire Police would not say whether the callers included more alleged victims, or whether they were potential witnesses.

    The force also admitted it had “worked with” the BBC in advance of the raid on Sir Cliff’s flat in Berkshire, resulting in the BBC having a news crew at the property when police arrived and a helicopter hovering overhead.”

    Who gave the story to the ‘media outlet’? Not SYP, then it must have been the ‘victim’ of Cliff Richard, who doubtless is trying to sell his ‘story’ to ‘Fleet Street’. How can SYP take seriously the story of one man and an incident that allegedly took place in 1985?

    Lord Cliffmas of Webb needs to have a word with his legal team and scrutinise in depth the warrant that was taken out on his gaff. Who was the Magistrate/Judge that authorised it and on what actual grounds.

    What evidential value is a search of a property 30 years after an alleged offence…it seems this was not even the property where such alleged offence occurred. The classic ‘fishing trip with media in tow’ hoping to find anything that may embarrass the suspect and with maximum meedja exposure to drag further ‘victims’ out of the woodwork and create a climate of no smoke without fire.

    This is now verging on witch hunt territory and if they can do this to His Cliffness they can do it to anybody.

    Anonymous says:

    Both statements are correct. The original information that gave the BBC the story obviously did not come from the police. Undoubtedly the BBC went to the police with what they had been given and a deal was struck in that they would not run the story; but would be told when CR`s flat was to be raided. As a consequence of all the media coverage it would appear more potential victims may have come forward. If Yorkshire Police had only one complaint that would a been a non runner. Now with the potential to dig deeper they may have enough to proceed to court. time will tell. It will be interesting to see if Cliff comes back to the UK where he would obviously be arrested and given bail conditions preventing him for leaving the UK until all of this is over. I bet his legal team is working 24/7 on this one.

    Its a fishing expedition and really not right even if they have a complaint to deal with.
    The only reason the police do this is surely that they have little evidence presented but they hope that if they make the search public that ” others ” will come out of the woodwork ( often fantasists or those looking to make money out of something that till now they have disregarded ) to give them a case.
    Its abhorent and deeply offensive in what is supposed to be a country where you are innocent until proven guilty.
    Guilty or not Cliff Richard should not be at this stage a man marked out by the press and media .
    Its for the courts to metere out justice .

  111. 111

    Something rather formulaic about this.

    Raid a property for no clear purpose. Have the media present. If the subject is rich enough, remarkable things happen to other people’s memories. Once there are around ten such potential ‘victims’, a case can be brought on strength of numbers.

    Uncorroborated evidence from those who were infants at the alleged time will trump any other evidence, even if it is shown to be mistaken. Yet it is likely to be taken as constituting proof beyond reasonable doubt. Presumption of innocence is forgotten.

    A financial windfall awaits anyone who puts in a claim. There is no downside to this ‘so as not to discourage victims’.

    One does not have to take sides in this issue (none of us know anyway!) to see that the potential for mistake is huge.

    Yet the formula is working and being peddled by the police for all it is worth.

    When the entire male population of the UK is imprisoned, then no doubt they can start on the women.

    I would hazard a guess that there will be at least one person found guilty, in the current crop, where overwhelming exculpatory evidence will subsequently be found, as occurred with the Birmingham Six, to show their trial was a travesty of justice.

    This Cliff thing is a good example. Cliff was the only person in the Rock and Roll biz about whom NOBODY had a bad word to say.

    The best policy would be to introduce a substantial citizens benefit that has to be earned through work over say five years. That would mean that our citizens could compete with new immigrants from the EU in terms of wages as they would not be eligible for such benefits (it would be even better to leave the EU of course).

    To some extent the citizens benefit could be paid for through a reduction in tax allowances at the lower end.

    Likewise housing benefit should have to be worked for.

    Every human is fallible. You and myself included. Myself particularly, I hope! :-)

    You say “HARD evidence”. That can be only be defined as infallible evidence. Nothing will ever get that strong. Karl Popper tells us we can disprove things but can prove nothing. White Swan – Black Swan refers.

    Beyond reasonable doubt is what is required in a criminal court. Balance of probabilities in a civil court. We know they often get this wrong, whether or not a jury is involved.

    That should not stop the whole process. But neither should it be regarded as the last word.

    The CPS have admitted that they go trawling for ‘victims’ because, with enough ‘victims’ on the charge sheet a jury would be influenced to bring in a guilty verdict. At the same time, any previous convictions must be kept from juries because it may influence juries to bring in a guilty verdict.
    This stinks, as does the fact that police seem to be carrying out searches not for specific items but as a general search in the hopes they might find something – anything that they might perhaps use against the person concerned. The police are not supposed to do that.

    Understand your perfectly valid point but would suggest it worked both ways:

    * BBC owned the premises.
    * BBC collected invitations from the youngsters wanting to be on the show.
    * BBC allocated tickets.
    * BBC knew about what happened before and after these events.
    * BBC colluded with Savile as he (ostensibly) brought along ratings.

    Then your point applies:

    * He was an enabler for others

    Here, pooling our points, is a prima facie case against literally dozens of BBC staff at every level from DG downwards.

    Where are the interviews? Where are the police searches? Where are the arrests? Where are the trials? Where, for that matter, is the media?

    A complete blank. If ever there were grounds for suspicion of complacency, at best, or collusion, at worst, here it is.

    And the British police, “the world’s finest”, have done absolutely bugger all.

    Any decent villain today will just deal in enough drugs/crime/brutality to profitably stay under the ‘community cohesion’ radar and keep off claiming too many benefits and Bob’s your sisters bother!

    Employ skilllful manipulation of the laughable crime statistics..well those that anyone bothers to report and everything is hunky dory and ok… and that massive unchecked immigration of Europe’s (nay the World’s) finest villains has had no impact on British recorded crimes figures….yeah right!

    Woe betide the keen officer who disturbs the hornets nest and causes a schism in the community…..those vexatious litigants encouraged by their legal aid hungry briefs always win out…especially when the race card is played to the nth degree.

    DCI Gene Hunt says:

    In order to obtain a search warrant the Police have to convince a magistrate or Judge that they have reasonable cause to suspect that A) a crime has been committed and B) that there is a realistic chance that evidence relating to that crime may be found at the location they propose to search. With this in mind it is difficult to concieve that notwithstanding part A) evidence of a crime such as that alleged could be found 30 years later. Thus the Police must have either more information than what is reported or else they are simply on a fishing expedition which should never have been sanctioned by the courts and which sets a worrying trend. For example was there anything of evidential value found when searching Rolf Harris’s home? Was any of this presented as evidence in hs subsequent court case ?

    DCI Gene Hunt says:

    As a result of what came out of the Chilcot enquiry particularly during Alstair Campbells examination, there is now prima face evidence that Tony Blair lied and misled Parliament when he said that it was ‘beyond doubt’ that Saddam possessed WMD. He should be tried asap.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
