Nonce Watch: Clifford To Be Transferred Today

nonce-clifford

Guido’s man at HM Wandsworth Prison reports that Max Clifford is expected to be transferred to an easier regime as early as today. Max is being kept segregated and went into the exercise yard yesterday morning accompanied by only two prison guards. Fellow prisoners greeted him with cheery chorused shouts of “nonce” and “c**t”, while trying to spit at him. Oh dear…

Max Clifford Jailed for 8 Years

WATCH: Clifford Creeps Up on Sky News Reporter

Not live and not aired at the time, this is the bizarre moment Max Clifford crept up behind Sky’s Tom Parmenter during a pre-record outside Southwark Crown Court, released now for the first time:

After Guido read Clifford’s autobiography he was in little doubt he was a wrong ‘un.

Quote of the Day

The NSPCC:

“Max Clifford has rightly been unmasked as a ruthless and manipulative sex offender who preyed for decades on children and young women. 

Clifford was a rich and influential man who dined with the stars but the way he manipulated and groomed his victims is typical of many sex offenders. He exploited their vulnerabilities, using lies and coercion to get what he wanted.

Intimidated by his power and wealth, many of his victims did not initially speak out. But the courage they have shown in telling police what had happened to them and giving evidence means they have finally got justice.”

Max Clifford Guilty

Max Clifford Trial Inches Towards Conclusion

Big developments in court today, where Max Clifford’s barrister is trying to pull off an almighty shafting of the prosecution case, tossing testimony from the publicist’s doctor into the mix to give his defence a hand. Members of the jury were previously told Max has a “freakishly small” micropenis, but things came to a head when the Crown was brought to its knees by some hard evidence suggesting otherwise:

“His doctor has recently measured his penis. When flaccid, it is five and a quarter inches long – certainly not freakishly small, certainly not enormous.”

But will it stand up in court?

Max Moments: Clifford on Paedophiles

MAX-MOMENTS

In “Read All About It” Max Clifford recounts his work bringing the likes of Gary Glitter and Jonathan King to justice, making clear in no uncertain terms his disgust for paedophiles. On Glitter:

“Max punched the air in triumph when he was sent down.

‘It was meant he was known for the vile sick person he is and that wherever he went parents would watch out for him…despite the tightening up on the law relating to paedophiles, it remains very difficult to get victims to testify. Many paedophiles are rich and powerful, which sometimes wrongly helps them get away with it.'”

Yesterday afternoon Clifford was charged with 11 indecent assaults by the Savile cops…

Leveson Effect: Can You See What It Is Yet?

rolf-harris-jim-davidson-max-cliford-leveson-effect

Over the last few weeks the police Operation Yewtree has questioned a number of celebrities over allegations of sex crimes. Each time the papers have known the names of those arrested or questioned, each time the first the public knew about it was when this blog broke the story.

We scooped the press on the arrests of Max Clifford and Jim Davidson. Today we can report that Rolf Harris has also been questioned under caution by police from Operation Yewtree. This has been an open secret in media circles for weeks, journalists and newspaper editors alike have known about the story – yet none has published the news. Why?

No judge has ordered reporting restrictions in relation to Rolf Harris, no super-injunctions prevent the reporting of news concerning him, instead his lawyers Harbottle and Lewis are citing the Leveson Inquiry’s report in letters to editors of newspapers – cowing them into silence. The Leveson effect is real and curtailing the freedom of the press through fear.

In the case of Max Clifford a popular media commentator was our source, with Jim Davidson an ex-copper tipped us off and a local journalist gave us confirmation. This blog is nimble and prepared to take risks, so we are beating all the other news organisations who post-Leveson prefer to await for official police confirmation. This blog is in the news business, we want to beat the competition, we want to be first, we’re proud of breaking stories. We want our readers to be the first to know what is going on.

When the Leveson Inquiry began Guido upset the judge by publishing Alistair Campbell’s evidence before he gave it. Leveson responded by placing a restriction order on this blog. Neatly illustrating by example that the Leveson Inquiry could bring in an era of judicial censorship. It is more subtle than that currently, the chilling effect is that editors fear the prospect of a law rather than any actual new law.

This blog likes being the first to report the news, we would also like to win in a fair fight. The press has its hands tied. A free press ensures that the police do not go about their business in secret. A secret police is a dangerous thing, reporting the arrest of suspects is an important safeguard in a free society – for them and us. We are in danger of losing that safeguard.

Max Moments: I Banned Underage Girls From Sex Parties

MAX-MOMENTS

Max Clifford tells us in his book Read All About It” that he took extra care to make clear that underage girls were never allowed at his infamous sex parties. According to Clifford:

“The parties initially took place about once a month, then weekly. I became the ringmaster, a role I like to have in many aspects of life, and particularly when I’m in the middle of big stories. The parties became my circus and various people performed in different ways. I didn’t allow drugs to be taken or anyone underage to come… Although what I’ve done is certainly immoral, sexual procuring has never bothered me as long as the people involved have been old enough to know what they’re doing.”

A helpful disclaimer…

UPDATE: In his own words…

Zac Goldsmith: “The hon. Gentleman might like to know that today’s Guido Fawkes quote of the day is the one on drug laws that we have heard cited by a number of hon. Members.”

Mike Hancock: “I am delighted to hear that Guido Fawkes is talking about something other than me.”

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
