I always felt there was something off about that Two Little Boys song...something about the false sentimentalising about war...now it turns out - well -
No, for serious. I never liked that song and heard it a lot growing up as a kid. There was always something not quite right about it.
Yes- a weird song. So very much out of its time.
Was it a child or a young female (i.e. teenager)? My understanding is that it was just one person. Not that it makes it right.
I'm told- but I don't know on what authority- that the charges relate to a single adult female.
And this becomes a crime 30-40 years after the fact exactly how?
The whole thing is a bid odd. For instance why is it only cheesy, has-been celebs who have been hauled in? Do A-listers- rock stars, big name actors- never commit sex crimes?
If this is a crime, then how many men could be charged with similar offences? I know it's not right, but if the incident was a one off and the person assaulted was an adult, then what purpose is served, exactly, by dragging it up now?
Sells papers and as you can see from all of the trash TV on now, people adore scandal, especially if someone is publicly brought down and more especially if sex is involved.
I don't suppose there are many men who don't have something of this kind on their conscience.
I'm not sure either of those gentlemen are linked to Rock Lane. I was thinking of a politician. Or maybe two....
Old Holborn rings a bell. I'll look him up.
There's a list of habitues going the rounds. It has some interesting names on it. A lot of dead worthies- Anthony Blunt, Cyril Smith, the NF fuehrer Colin Jordan- plus a number who are happily still with us...
Give people power and they abuse it...
You mean Elm Guest House?
Whatever is happening here it is going to backfire on the real perps. I mean, here on your blog, as everywhere, there are going to be people asking, why are police hounding a guy for groping one adult woman when we know about organised, long-term abuse of small boys by a number of celebrities and others? Why is one getting arrested while the others run free? This dichotomy can't go on.
This scandal is bubbling away just beneath the surface. The information is there for anyone who cares to go look for it. I think it might have broken by now if it hadn't been for Lord McAlpine's temper tantrum. Odd how slow he's been to follow through on his threats.
Sorry. This is very Brit-specific. There's a huge back story to do with care home abuse and political scandal and press regulation and so on...
