Musket,
There was no significance in my including "Perhaps ...". I just started at the beginning of the line and there it was. My cut and paste was only there to give continuity as I was not following on directly after your post. I wasn't having a go at you in particular. Maybe my post would have been better rewritten as:

Perhaps we are discussing concertinas because there is nothing to say regarding Cliff .....

If there is nothing to say then why don't people just give it a rest and move on to something more interesting? It isn't compulsory to post.

Perhaps we are discussing concertinas because there is nothing to say regarding Cliff, and won't be unless and until his appearance at Bramhall Lane with Billy Graham may or may not see him in court.

That said;

1. Anybody found enjoying themselves at Bramhall Lane is possibly guilty of anything you choose to charge them with. Hanging's too good for them.

2. American evangelist preachers are, statistically speaking, snorting a few lines, abusing vulnerable impressionable people who look up to them, whilst having a bloody good lifestyle from the most disgusting TV begging for cash.

3. I thought "The Young Ones" was a song, not an aspiration.

I am on the Horns of A Dilemma. I am looking for a certain cd to help me relax, tried every muscle relaxant going, nothing works as well as that familiar voice, like hot melted butter poured over gravel. Pain, nausea etc. goes away. Said cd was £1,000+ via Amazon UK, is this a real price/is someone extracting the Michael?? I thought it'd be cheap cos nobody wanted it.

Why?

It is interesting that the police force conducting the enquiry is the same one as was involved in turning a blind eye to industrial scale abuse. Political correctness has made that topic a no-go area. As was pointed out on another thread:

Strange and sad, the reluctance to discuss this topic mirrors the attitudes of officials and community leaders who allowed the abuse to continue for years.

It seems that the best way to avoid having a thread deleted is to stick to non-contentious issue like concertinas.

No, Al, they'd been conscripted into providing the ventilation for the escape tunnel.
And the most significant event in my memory relating to a brass band was when one around a 100 000 gallon beer vat failed at the upper end of Tottenham Court Road, the collapse of the tank took the rest with to and something close to hald a million gallons of beer washed down to the Thames at Charin Cross. A number of people died - one from going in in an attempt to drink it dry, and more when the floor of a house charging to view the bodies gave way, pitching another fifty into the beer-filled cellar below. And I quite like brass bands...

(Concertinas may not go around corners Al, but you and I possibly both recall a certain concertina player in Mansfield who is round the bend. And possibly reading this, checking the cap for tightness and working out his next heckle when I play Blidworth Bottoms next month.)

My comment was about the concertina, which IMO is a boring instrument, not concertina players. Concertina players weren't mentioned, so it is not offensive to concertina players, except idiots who have themselves chosen to make it about concertina players.

Take your insecurities and hang-ups and look for another victim for your rudeness and aggressiveness. I don't roll over and die for anyone, especially notoriously argumentative players of boring instruments.

Evidence is the BBC term although by coincidence, I can say with past authority that you can only remove evidence under code B of Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. So unless they feel it could be of interest to their enquiries it is theft.

So Occams Razor and BBC seem to agree, it is potential evidence. No comment from me beyond that as it could be evidence that clears him. Investigations in general should be to find truth.

I just couldn't resist the joke about his latest album.

You couldn't make it up, could you? One thousand four hundred complaints against the same circles, nothing, one complaint about a celebrity, SYP launch a paparazzia. These aren't cops, they're fame hounds. They most certainly have a very distorted vision of what abuse is, so I think it'll be a doddle to clear Cliff if they do charge him. The trouble is, that kind of argument is one of heading to the lowest quality of justice, which is about all that's left after this. What I would suggest is they start recruiting Police trainees, because with that number of complaints, it's clearly time to follow up on each and every officer who was involved in it, high and low: there won't be much of a force left afterwards as a result.

I did make that comment, Squeaky, and it was not intended to insult you, it was a comment which referred to my dislike of the concertina as an instrument, nothing else, which you chose to take offence to. Don't try to blame me for your own hang-ups.

The rest of your above post is, quite frankly, irrelevant to this issue.

Incidentally, I didn't notice you attacking the poster who did insult you recently when he/she called you 'pompous and illiterate', so why attack me?

a stupid generalisation, backwoodsman, its not the instrument but the player. mean whileChris Beardshaw told BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time that flowers kept near to the musical highlights of Cliff Richard had all died.

"Those in the Cliff Richard house all died. Sabotage was suspected but we couldn't prove it," he said.

Black Sabbath music was played in a second greenhouse, while a third was kept silent.

The plants kept in the other two greenhouses survived the experiment, the study revealed.

"The ones with Black Sabbath - great big, thumping noise, rowdy music - they were the shortest, but they had the best flowers and the best resistance to pest and disease," the findings stated.

The experiment was undertaken by horticultural students to see whether music affects plants.

Squeak - if you're insulted by someone pointing out a mis-spelling, I'd suggest you're far too sensitive. I've no recollection of insulting you earlier, if I did it was not intentional and again, I'd suggest you're far too sensitive.
