In 2010 the Coalition Agreement committed the ensuing government to restoring anonymity for people accused of sexual assaults. The government reneged on the commitment once in office, predictably, so due to a CPS now led by a hatchet-faced feminist, Alison Saunders, we’re seeing a series of allegations against prominent elderly men alleged to have committed sexual assaults up to 50 years ago. Elderly women, prominent or otherwise, are never targeted in this way.
Many of the accused men have been cleared on all counts, but their reputations lie in tatters, and some have come close to bankruptcy after paying crippling legal costs. The latest suspect is Sir Cliff Richard, who the police haven’t even questioned yet.
14 months ago a man made an allegation to the police (for the first time) that he’d been abused by Cliff Richard at a Christian rally in 1985 – 29 years ago – when he was under 16. For 29 years he’d remained silent. The police colluded with the BBC – it’s about time it was renamed the Feminist Broadcasting Corporation – to film from a helicopter the police raid on one of Cliff Richard’s homes. A report on the matter in the Daily Telegraph. An extract:
Sir Cliff, 73, believes the high-profile raid was no more than a “fishing expedition” designed to generate publicity and encourage people to “come out of the woodwork”. He has been warned that as a result of the new information which police will now have to follow up, it may be “weeks” or even longer before detectives are ready to speak to him, leaving him in limbo for a lengthy period of time.
