good grief its getting worse by the day...i would imagine that anyone who said hello to JS must be quaking in their boots...what bothers me now about all this is the huge amount of public money its going to cost to investigate the hundreds of allegations with no guarantee of proving anything...

From report on the subject:
"There is no suggestion that any allegations of paedophilia have been made against Mr Travis, but two women have come forward in recent weeks claiming he groped them during the 1970s and 1980s. "
So two women have come forward who were not underage. What has this to do with it. Soon, no doubt, every women who went out with a serviceman when in their teens will be claiming he touched their breasts and they want compensation

It's always the same when anything like this arises it becomes a witch hunt, at least these people are alive and can answer their accusers. Lets just see how many are released without charge in the end. I noticed that they all seem to be has beens who are being questioned. I find it strange that no major stars are being questioned. What about Paul Mccartney or Mick Jagger or stars of that level, I'm sure they got up to a few naughties in their time?

Dave Lee Travis's arrest

DLT denies any envolvement with children, at this stage I totally believe him I hope he clears his name. We will of course see other people who are implicated named and they deserve to be but as names are brought forward we should I think be open minded until proof is shown. I wouldn't like to be connected with this kind of thing being innocent.

To bring back an old thread, the final reports are now out. Only seen the TV summaries, but struck by the description of him: grandiose, opportunistic, manipulative, narcissistic,, arrogant, lacking empathy. Seems that would also apply to one of his major mentors, the obnoxious Margaret Thatcher - two of a kind!!

mike ive seen the reports as well and i dont think i will ever get my head round how he could have gotten away with so much to so many spanning 50 years without someone opening their mouths..i know that a few did but not many...baffles me completely...its just a pity that he is not hear to answer for himself..


PROUD BRUMMIE
