GUEST,Patsy BS: Cliff Richard - police investigation (181* d) RE: BS: Cliff Richard - police investigation 25 Aug 14


Well, I was very glad when punk rock emerged. After all those years of British Glam Rock it was a breath of fresh air. As in all decades some bands were better than others but music did need the edgier sound of the punk influence for the kids at that time IMO in Britain anyway. Thank goodness audiences now appreciate all genres of music and the musicianship of bands from all decades etc. You only have to watch Glastonbury to see the variety of performers that top the bill there.

.... Back to Cliff Richard he had built up such an enigma about himself through the decades that someone somewhere would have been out there trying to find any mud to dig up. Maybe he brought it upon himself I don't know but I hope he is innocent of whatever it is supposed to be about because once tarnished with rumours like this it sticks whether innocent or not that is the problem. What about the people no longer with us or in the public eye, how is really known about them especially if they had been cunning enough to cover the tracks? It is good that victims are able to blow the whistle on abusers but it would be a travesty if someone else has got away with worse things. I don't know what all the details of what he is accused of only that the alleged victim was under 16. It seems to be more about homophobia to me. If there were more accusations against him then that would be different but one solitary accusation?
