    It’s worth mentioning that before the BBC he worked for the Daily Mail.

  4. He lives in Poole? Also a very good area for boats. One of Edward Heath favourite marinas for taking young boys for their last trips in he’s yacht morning cloud.

  5. Well on the basis of previous convictions he’s likely to be sentenced to a couple of weeks, on account of 1) his extreme age and 2) the average sentence available ‘at the time of the offense’. That’s of course if it ever comes to court! :(
    Oh dear Oh dear

  6. When the stuart hall story broke on a news thread some one posted “whatever happened to clifford luton?” ..strange…
