Latest twist in the offshoots of Savile:

if it is the one I suspect it is there will be a TV slot empty soon.
Loved the picture posed by a model!

Also a thoughtful piece about the Showtrials and compensation:

Freddy Starr yesterday and 2011.

Feeling quiet shocked at the state of Freddy Starr seeing him yesterday. The man can't even speak anymore. I also found it highly suspect how the prosecution service only announced they were not going to prosecute him. That was on the same day Stuart Hall admitted more guilt during his second trial, and the successful conviction of Max Clifford last week.

Here's the very sad state video of him yesterday.

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

To have those sorts of accusations hanging over him for so long has clearly taken a terrible toll on him. He's not a young man and its no doubt also cost him any work he might have had in that period too.

You can't help but feel that perhaps something isn't right in a system that can do this to an innocent man.

Out of all the men accused of these kind of things since the Savile scandal broke.
Freddy Star has been the one that stood out from all the rest. He genuinely looked a broken man. I think I made a comment saying so further back in this thread. Looking at him his nerves have gone totally, possibly too far to recover. His solicitor even has his arm around Freddy for moral support. It's very sad.

If you want a shock, read the official court report on the sentencing of Max Clifford, it's in the public domain. What he did to those girls is as bad as Saville.

That comes at no surprise really.
This is interesting watching on the Max Clifford matter.

F.Starr has been suffering from depression/nervous anxiety for many years. He has looked as he is today for a long while and some years back it seemed to take him all his time to speak. I thought he'd had a stroke. Guilty or Not Guilty he's a broken man anyway.

I was thinking about Savile last night. He was presumably gay or bi-sexual, he had honours and wealth heaped upon him for doing not very much really, and after his death he's been demonised. Another homosexual who probably did more than any other single individual to win WWII was Alan Turing. He was driven to suicide because he was ostracised for his sexuality, but years after his death has been honoured and praised more than he ever was in his lifetime. Funny our sense of values in this country.
