Who'll be acquitted?
Roache - could go either way, he's a bit of a "do what thou wilt" pagan sort who maybe just doesnae give a fuck about what he does.
Harris - links with the Royals, bang to rights guilty but potentially aquitted due to his 'connections' (a conviction might lead us further down the rabbit hole).
Reckon they will all cop for it tbh.
Agree that there are potentially 'bigger' names to be revealed - but wonder whether we will have to wait until they have died before the truth comes out
grabbing an intern/new member of staff's tits, even for 'banter' is not acceptable, and I don't think it was then either, before you get in to the 'it was a different time' stuff.
and have no idea what the charges are, although I got the impression that DLT was getting a bit of a rough ride - Sure, it's not acceptable to be going around groping people but the odd slap on the arse in a joking, non-gratifying way in the 70's is hardly the crime of the century.
Unless of course there's more to it, in which case I'll concede that I'm wrong.
Had there been any prior rumours/complaints about him like there were with Savile?
I know she didn't name names, but it appears that he was the 'famous DJ' who groped her when she started at Radio 1. Certainly seems to be his MO
Him and his character have been part of my life since I can remember. I hope he didn't do bad things and the court of laws proves that to be the case.
(N.b. innocence, laws and proof used in the most naive sense possible)
