Am I the only person to feel uncomfortable about the arrest of so many high profile 'celebrities' on charges that happened half a century ago. I have to admit that people like Jimmy Saville was clearly a wrong 'un and so it would appear was Stuart Hall.
I can accept that serial offenders should face the full force of the law even though I cannot agree in this retrospective justice. If it was a serious offence it should have been reported then and not many years later.
We are currently living in a culture light years away from the days of the sixties and seventies. In those days we had 'groupies' who put themselves on the line because they were 'up for it'. This has always been the case. Young girls have always pursued the male celebrities so why have we now had a spate of cases against these venerable but famous former stars.
Once again somebody has an agenda. Nobody can compare life today under the current PC demand with life fifty years ago. Almost everyone who lived through those years knows that life was different. We were not exposed to sex education so we found out for ourselves.
What is happening now is ridiculous and it does not make sense so... as 'Judge Judy' would say... 'if it does not make sense then it is wrong'. Just why are these aging celebrities being pursued when almost all of us who belonged to that generation had guilty secrets?
I would bet serious money that serious money is involved in these accusations. Someone somewhere has seen a gap in the market and in those days so many girls were groped inappropriately that it could become a growth industry!
