Cliff Hanger

More allegations against Cliff Richard ?

“The expansion of the investigation meant no date could be given for when it would be concluded”. Which will be a relief for South Yorkshire Police and the BBC.


An historical sex offence inquiry into singer Sir Cliff Richard has “increased significantly in size” and involves “more than one allegation”, police say.

The expansion of the investigation meant no date could be given for when it would be concluded, South Yorkshire Police’s chief constable said.

It comes after police raided Sir Cliff’s Berkshire home last August.

He was interviewed about an allegation of a sex crime involving a young boy, but was not arrested or charged.

In a letter dated 10 February to Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, Chief Constable David Crompton said his force was in regular contact with Sir Cliff’s lawyers.

That involved a “verbal update about once a fortnight”, he said.

“This is an investigation which has increased significantly in size since its inception. Sir Cliff Richard’s lawyers are aware that there is more than one allegation,” he said in the letter.

He added: “It would be premature and potentially misleading to predict a likely date when it will be concluded, however, we are progressing as swiftly as possible.”

    Savile, Cyril Smith and Max Clifford kept their many crimes extremely well-hidden. They were arrogant, lying scumbags. In such cases it appears that a mass of similar accusations was the only way to confirm their crimes, in lieu of physical evidence.

    There is a distinct possibility that the police took wilful advantage of the BBC’s publicity in the hope that other accusers would come forward to strengthen a case against Mr Webb. If so, the tactic appears to be paying off.

      I think that’s what it’s all been about from the police raid on his home and onwards, i.e. to get possible victims to come forward and speak out.

      If there is any truth in it large numbers of his fans will need counselling to come to terms with it.

      I really didn’t think they would go after CR because it would have been deemed as too damaging to the Nations psyche. It’s very encouraging news that they are, at least on the surface it is. But what might the ultimate aim be.

      If these investigations eventually bring down the government, they might tell us the people that the only alternative is to be totally governed from Brussels. That’s not to excuse any of these paedo scum who should be exposed and imprisoned if found guilty. It’s the possible underlying motivation behind it that’s bothering me slightly.
