Cliff Hanger comes to an End.

Cliff Richard’s punishment for being a wealthy celebrity who chose not to marry has come to an end. Two years of the Internet and the media being given free rein to speculate and fabricate the most heinous slander is over. Until the time comes for him to die…whereupon a fresh group of allegations will surface [...]

‘Saint’ Nick and the Fantasist Club.

Someone had a sense of humour at Operation Midland, when they psuedo-named their prime ‘witness’ as Nick. I am indebted to Bob Woffinden, in his excellent book ‘The Nicholas Cases‘*, for alerting me to the fact that ‘Nicholas’, before he became the patron saint of small children hoping to accept sweeties from a stranger who comes [...]

Operation Kaddie fiddlers on the hoof…

Cliff Richard has waited 636 days to hear any substantive news regarding the allegations made against him. Almost two years. He now has to wait many months to hear whether the crown prosecution service think it is ‘in the public interest’ to air those allegations in court – should they decide to do so, it [...]

Playing Soft Ball.

We awoke this morning to the news that the BBC had discovered fresh dangers lurking in the undergrowth to damage your children for life. Not all children, naturally.  Those who play football are apparently safe, despite the preponderance of injuries reported amongst professional players, especially those just signed for millions of pounds from foreign shores. Football [...]

Surrey Police and Lynne Owens.

If Surrey Police appear at times to have a symbiotic relationship with the Metropolitan Police, it could date back to the days when districts like Epsom, Elmbridge and Reigate were the province of the Metropolitan Police, and were only handed over to Surrey for policing a mere 15 years ago. This action effectively increased the [...]

Starr Wars.

Monday, I managed to slip loose from the protective cordon that has been thrown around me – “for my own good” – and take the train down to London. It has been frustrating sitting here, behaving myself, whilst the Starr v Ward libel case played out in the Royal Courts of Justice. It was the [...]

Even Grimmer Fairy Tales.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin. Long, long ago, in a leafy Sussex village, not far from where Piltdown Man was discovered to be a hoax, there came a man who had fallen on hard times. It might be truer to say that he had been pushed onto hard times by due process as [...]

Mark Williams-Thomas – ‘It weren’t me, Guv’ – No: 276.

A prize pair. Fellow Paedo-hunters. Stinson-Hunter and Williams-Thomas. Mark Williams-Thomas has blundered into the bizarre Northern world of Owen Oyston. Across pages 8 and 9 of the Sunday People for March 15, in a combination of muckraking and wild inaccuracy, William-Thomas’ name appeared not only as reporter of “Model’s Horror as Photoshoot turns into a stay at Tycoon’s Mansion”, but then [...]

Grim Fairy Tales…The Savile Allegations.

I was struck by the number of people – allegators – in the past series of Savile reports, who had contacted Yewtree merely out of a wish to validate other reports of abuse. In plain English – although they had no evidence of abuse themselves, or were fabricating it, it was out of a sense [...]

The Buried Truth? – More Savile allegations.

Another day and another half dozen ‘truly awful, dreadful’ examples of the savage abuse Savile allegedly inflicted on vulnerable children in Children’s Homes. Henshaw’s School for the Blind – the media version. “Henshaws School for the Blind at centre of new Jimmy Savile claims”. As you might imagine – being at the centre of the further allegations, [...]
