My uncle used to cycle with the charity raiser and often he would come to my home with a glare for me, of course he was more gentle with my slightly older sister, Indeed weeks before this story came to Press, she stated "at one time his story will come out and people will know about the horrible man". We have not spoken on the matter since since the story broke, and she is silent, her choice too.
I am glad I was a young rag a*se boy then"
When both my parents worked we had uncles that would look after us, yes some abused, indeed I had brotherly abuse, but my brother is so saintly and above suspicion the truth will never out.
The brother that abused me went to events arranged by the church, he a saintly alter boy that went into the marines. Even three cousins spoke about someone they met one night in an alleyway and when two spoke it was thought my brother, well they got leathered with a belt, so they never spoke, my brother now has my son and his two children, or my grandchildren. Yes he manged to work his way into my family using the same abuse he had as when I a child, and of course he the non child - bearer has now my son and two grandchildren, his wife just thinks he is a kind man to the former dead wife, her child and two granchildren. Luckily I in old age have a good woman and it helps the years of his abuse when he came to my home, the curtains closed and things would happen before I got back off twelve hours shift. All the neighbours did not know he was my brother, the Royal Marine was her lover and the father of her child, whom he first saw two years later for the first time he had ever been there. She was doing the welsh village thing, luckily I have a daughter from the woman I went with at the time after i stopped going in bed with wife, she died last year from a carried disease and I had told my brother to leave it alone - he said to me "You are only jealous I am getting it and you are not", his wife has the same illness in Gosport too. He tells he he caught it in Singapore in the jungles, yes he had never been to Borneo. He is a man of God and she believes no other!
Can I make a citizen's arrest on query Peter who wants a law allowing grown men to use an adolescents anal cavity???
The good citizens of Broome, Oz, would never give Peter a moments rest if he had (a now 17 to 18 years),youngster in tow. This is why people as different as Peter as Hamaza adore Oz, UK, Islington. Hamza's UK expereince is like the kids who ripped the headscarves of the ladies. These poor kids allowed to get away with anything for years, then suddenly the law drops on them like a ton of bricks.
We are a nation of hypocritic and faux liberal bigots.
Saville was right in a way. Glitter a ludicrous figure in most eyes had a huge following of teenage girls who would do anything for him. Glitter was warned off. Parents in Vietnam and Thailand sold their children to Glitter. It was not like at the Bradford case at all where out of control young girls sought sex. Our corrupt politicians have tried to portray this as cultural sameness. Paddy pants down another hypocritical piece of whatever expletive you would insert here, knew about Smith and Portillo but these Parlimentarians like the saintly Foot actual said in Parliament they would use the law to stop this paediphilia being made public. Pantsdown had is menial secretary against the wall whilst Smith had his free children courtesy of our finest polticians. the Victoria Derbyshire showed what trash both the supposed victims and perpetrators were. Our long suffering policemen get the blame for everything. Our stinking corrupt polticians of all persuasions know a pleb when they smel one.
Oh Boy, will the Murdoch Press revel in the squirming of the BBC? One, two. And let's not forget tax avoidance.
Apparently guilty on two counts. The Sky's the limit!
Radio and TV Fun
I'm not so sure that Sky will have such fun. Many voices out of the BBC have commented that this culture of paedophilia was not confined to the 'talent' at the BBC, but manifests in all its ugly horror in the commercial tv companies too. This story will run and run if an investigation is allowed to be made independent of anyone, however tenuously, invested in this scandal.
The Met are investigating just now too.
Ouch! Very good.
