I’ve taken a great deal of flak over the past few months, simply because I’ve told you the truth on this issue.
The ’82 year old from Berkshire’ is Rolf Harris. I’ll ask you not to speculate on here exactly why he’s been arrested.
Although the arrest of a famous celebrity is bound to get people’s attention, it is nothing in comparison to the big scandal which will break in the UK soon. In my view the biggest political scandal ever, bigger even than Watergate. More on that soon enough but you will be horrified to find out what has been going on. So ‘enjoy’ your celebrity sacrifice for today but prepare yourself for the awful truth.
An 82-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexual offences as part of the Jimmy Savile investigation.
The pensioner is one of 11 people arrested so far under Operation Yewtree – the Met’s investigation into alleged offending by the former disc jockey and others.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said last night that the man, who has not been named, was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at an address in Berkshire.
He has been given police bail until May. Earlier this week the Mail revealed that as few as three of the men arrested by Scotland Yard over suspected sex offences in the Savile case are likely to be charged.
Details of the small number of Yewtree prosecutions emerged a day after a former BBC producer was released without charge following his arrest over an alleged sex assault in 1965.
