Thank goodness for Sir Cliff

As figures from the world of 'light entertainment' as it used to be called tumble like ninepins as sexual delinquents one can only be grateful that one figure at least remains aloof from the whispers and rumour. Sir Cliff has often been derided for his chaste and disciplined life, one underpinned by his Christian faith. Now as his contemporaries are facing public disgrace and prison he can feel vindicated. 

Of course the focus must now move to the eighties and the excesses of the new generation of variety performers and light entertainers; the generation of Ben Elton, Rik Mayall, Rowan Atkinson, Ade Edmondson, Alexei Sayle, Pamela Stephenson and their media contemporaries. There are dark tales of illegal drugs, alcohol in excess and sexual perversions. 

Then of course the nineties and the new media stars such as Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond must come under the witchfinder-general's spotlight. Surely the trio cannot be that cheerful without having committed some gross breaches of good behaviour?

And when of course the deviants themselves and all record of the miscreants, all their shows and recordings, have been removed from broadcast and consigned to a secret locked archive and only Sir Cliff remains as fit to transmit we will all be happy. Won't we?

Cliff Richard?

No, not to my taste something rings hollow about that bloke.

However, very decent and down to earth - a lad like Joe Brown and his clear acoustic guitar sound - his music always brings a smile.

Funny isn't it - like people under hypnosis experiencing previous lives always turn out to have been someone famous, these investigations of ancient sex crimes always seem to turn up someone who used to be a big name.
Anyway, Cliff's safe - that "Living Doll" was of the inflatable kind, surely.

Is this a 'tip off'?

Most unusual piece. In praise of Cliff.

Somebody should check out his predilections with that lass wot used to play tennis a few years back. Good mates they were reported to be.

One wonders what George Formby might have done with his ukelele in private.

From Saville thro' to Stuart Hall and all the rest --it is a feminist crock.
Hall chose to submit rather than risk spending the little time he had left as a nonce on the lowest rung of the prison system. As usual , full and better particulars of his alleged offences are hard to come by on the net--no transcripts of the proceedings or exact details of the charges are available that I can find. He plead guilty to the "lesser" charges in return for them dropping the heavier rape charge. Does that mean he did any of them--No--it means that, thanks to Blair changing the law to help Harman and the rest --he can't positively prove he didn't and would be found guilty and die in jail. The Saville hysteria was the set-up and the old fogies will be the show-trials.

And all men in this nation will be worse off as the result.

Standard procedure with anyone suspected of sexual offences is arrest.
This allows collection of evidence, which now includes computers, before there is a chance of such being disappeared.

Yes, Mr. Miller, it certainly is.

You must be too young to remember the rumours about Cliff then?
