Bill Roache AKA Ken Barlow Arrested on Suspicion of Rape

Corrie star Bill Roache, he of the 1,000 lovers, has been arrested on suspicion of rape involving a 15 year old girl in 1967. In March Roache was sticking up for celebs nicked by the Savile cops by saying sex abuse victims had brought it on themselves:

Roache: “If you accept that you are pure love, and if you know that you are pure love and therefore live that pure love, these things won’t happen to you.”

Interviewer: “To some people that sounds perhaps like you’re saying victims bring things on themselves – is that what you’re saying?”

Roache: “No, not quite, but and yet I am, because everything that happens to us has been a result of what we have been in previous lives or whatever.”

He also says society should “forgive” convicted sex offenders:

“There’s a fringe of people who, particularly pop singers, they have these groupies, these girls, who come, they’re sexually active, sexually mature, they don’t ask for their birth certificate, they don’t know what age they may be. If someone has done something wrong, the law will take its course. But even so, all of them, whether they are proven guilty or not, we should not be judgmental about anybody, ever. We shouldn’t go around condemning, unforgiving. We should all be totally forgiving about everything.”

Dominic Cummings tells Damian Collins:

“You talk of ‘contempt of Parliament’. You seem unaware that most of the country feels contempt for Parliament and this contempt is growing.”
