GUEST,Eliza BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread (221* d) RE: BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread 04 Jul 14

It looks as if somebody (or persons) has sent a complaint to the Attorney General about the too-lenient sentence. Apparently it will initiate an investigation even if only one complainant registers their disapproval. There may also be an appeal of course.

When I started the first thread, I intended only to invite posters' reactions to the case, in the light of Harris's enormous popularity. For someone of my age and generation (and for many on here I'm sure) he was much loved and enjoyed as an entertainer. I know that my own opinion of him was knocked sideways and I felt tremendous shock, having actually met the man years ago. It also opens up discussion of abuse occurring decades ago and its continuing impact on victims, even into their adulthood, and the apparent tendency for famous people to abuse their popularity for their own evil pleasure. I did not intend this to develop into a series of personal attacks on anyone, or an orgy of vicious name-calling.
I have avoided I hope any retaliation or nastiness on my part, but I have to say I regret ever having started or taken part in this discussion.
