Thread Name: Lyr Req: Five Young Apprentices (Rolf Harris)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Five Young Apprentices (Rolf Harris)
“Our Rolf” b'coz he’s from Down Under (where I believe, like me, Helen is from). He was known as “The Boy from Bassendean” (an old inner-city suburb of Perth).
There was a time when he was well-known and loved by many, for his music, comedy and art.
Sadly for him, his aberrant behaviour has resulted in his fall. However, I suspect there are still MANY in the Entertainment Industry who are quietly quaking for fear
of being exposed for past behaviour once regarded (probably mostly by men) as “normal and acceptable”.
I am reminded of the famous (in Oz) “Spiros joke” which ends : “You f**k ONE goat ……”
(i.e. in this world, one’s past achievements and glories count for Absolutely Nothing, once you cross the line ……)
PS I note that Cardinal Pell, another infamous Australian export, has just been granted another appeal. There are many here who would consider Rolf the more worthy of the two men!!
