Yeah, there's never been any cases in history where people have been falsely accused have there!
Lirish: You didn't KNOW he was a child molestor then did you? Your assertion was based on rumour. If you did know for definite then I'd suggest you should have gone to the authorities about it.
Although, at the moment, nothing has yet been proved, I'd say we can be sure beyond any reasonable doubt, due to the avalanche of allegations that are all of a sudden surfacing.
Jimmy Saville a pervert; who saw THAT coming eh?
I think the 14 year old girls did, unless he had them blindfolded and tied up in the boiler room with the other trouble makers.
Must admit that prior to this thread last year I had no idea Sir Jimmy was a predatory paedo - I watched his shows as a kid in blissful ignorance - can't say they were ever must see TV for me but neither did he give me the creeps as so many others seem to claim now. It was only googling it all that I found out he was the subject of so many rumours - at least some of which turn out to be true - those David Icke forums really are a wonder !
I'm amazed at how many cases have come out this week and annoyed it's only now they are coming to light. Although I hope other people that have suffered at the hands of other "famous" & still alive sickos will have the courage to speak up now.
SR's rght to an extent - the 60's and 70's were in a different era and sexual harrassment or deviation wasn't treated the same as it is today. there were many "celebs" from those days who were known to be pretty lecherous or predatory - Benny Hill (got some of the girls off his TV shows to give him blow jobs), Frankie Howard (predatory homosexual) to name 2 - but details of their habits only came to light after their deaths, although there were many rumours while they were alive. no different in many ways to Saville
I just heard a really sad story on R5 Live about a sixty year old woman abused by her Godfather to the point of attempted rape as a teenager. She was having a conversation with her 85 year old mum who was saying "this Savile business. It must've gone on in our day but I never heard of it. Did anything like that ever happen to YOU?" and the poor lady STILL couldn't tell her mum - even 50 years on. She tried but the words didn't come out.
Jimmy Saville, Frankie Howerd, Benny Hill, Freddie Starr - is there any 70s light entertainment that is safe to watch - Terry and June maybe ?
Ok, you guys get the torches, I'll find the mob....
pops - it would appear that even Terry Scott wasn't a paragon of virtue - from Wiki:
"in 1987, Scott suffered a nervous breakdown. The attack was in part brought on by his public confession that he had had a series of affairs since his marriage to dancer Margaret Pollen in 1957"
Millsy - will this do?? (sorry about the Daily Hate link *shudder*)
or perhaps, let's go the whole hog and have Brett Sutton, a world class triathlon coach and currently coaching a number of big names competing in the Ironman World Champs in Kona tomorrow - a convicted sex offender - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brett_Sutton#Sex_offences
In the 60s it is probable that many of the top popstars sh******d girls that were border line underage...groupies threw themselves at the latest charttoppers. Listen to the song Young Girl or Go away little girl; the lyrics tell the story.
I witnessed a chart topping Liverpudlian tell a young girl in his dressing room that he would only sign his autograph on her tits...if I had to I would testify to this in court.
What Savile is supposed to have done was wrong indeed but there were many more at it. Perhaps not in hospitals etc but certainly in dressing rooms at pop concerts and dance halls.
i think its lightly different at pop concerts.if the girls go to pop concerts and get themselves backstage....then they are pretty savvy...and whilst i still think it is totally wrong.......the drug addled rockstars could at least state they thought they were 16 for their gropes.....
having children go on a childrens tv progrmamme or in a childrens hospital ward with a guy that is in a respectable position.the parents would have had no idea that anything like this might happen and so warn their children about it......
