However much I dislike Cliff's music, the worst sort of sanitised, sexless, processed cheese version of Rock 'n' Roll, whose career I would love to see obliterated, I don't believe this.

He should have been careful of them neighbourhood strays.
 
2014-08-14 05:30:33 PM  
It's the internet. He's guilty from the moment someone accuses him... right?

FTFA: "Sir Cliff, born Harry Webb . . . "

So his real first name is "Harry" and he chose "Richard" as his last name?  Well, that's your evidence right there, coppers.

/But I've had historical sex, meself.

Yes.  That, and even if he's totally acquitted, he's still guilty.

Lex A. Preau: FTFA: "Sir Cliff, born Harry Webb . . . "

From teh wiki:  "1950s entrepreneur Harry Greatorex wanted the up-and-coming Rock 'n' Roll singer to change from his real name of Harry Webb. The name Cliff was adopted as it sounded like cliff face, which suggested "Rock." It was Ian Samwell who suggested that the former Harry Webb be surnamed Richard as a tribute to Webb's musical hero Little Richard."

Yeah, it makes less sense than your explanation, but there you are.

He's had nothing but bad luck
Since the day he saw the ass on that boy
Took him home and Cliff dropped his pants
Told him "this is a cigar, and you're Freud"

Twenty years later the cops show up
Looking for proof of that whore
Didn't tell him but they told the press
Makes you wonder what they came there for

He's just Sir Clifton Richard
With penis on his mi-hind
Beware the horny bastard
He's gonna get you from behi-ind

ffs i'm old...

If only he was as rich as Pete Townsend. Then he could claim that it was "for research".

What's the point of executing a search warrant now in regards to a sex crime which took place in the 80's?  What do they expect to find?  Unless maybe there is a claim that pictures were taken of the incident?

BizarreMan: What's the point of executing a search warrant now in regards to a sex crime which took place in the 80's?  What do they expect to find?  Unless maybe there is a claim that pictures were taken of the incident?


Assuming the process for obtaining a search warrant is the same in England as in the U.S., the law enforcement officer requesting the warrant must execute a sworn affidavit containing a detailed factual basis based on personal knowledge or on information from reliable sources that constitutes probable cause to believe that evidence of a crime will be found on premises which must be described with particularity. Then a judge signs the warrant without bothering to read the affidavit.

Search warrant, eh?  That's the way it always starts...

The soft underbelly of the internet has known for ages.....since operation Fernbridge back in the 80's when his name appeared on the visitors list of a particularly disreputable 'guest house' in London.

Mostly used in a manner where children in care, would be ferried across London to then be molested by celebs, politicians and other people of stature.

I only learned about that guest house yesterday in the wake of all this, and was disturbed to learn that children from a kids home near where I live is one of the places abused children were taken from. It's now been closed, sold to developers and converted into two large houses now, but I went round years ago to do an inspection of the site without knowing its history, and on the walls the kids had scrawled loads of graffiti expressing their displeasure with the place. One was huge and stuck in my mind, it simply said "THIS PLACE IS HELL". I felt like at any moment I might turn a corner and see creepy children ghosts staring at me like something from a horror film. Bad vibes, man. Now I understand why.

I don't know why they didn't at least try to cover up the graffiti. Unless it was written by the staff.

Cliff,
Sometimes it seems as if...
You really are a cliff
When fascists try to push you over it.
Are they the lemmings?
or are you Cliff...
Or are you, Cliff?

About "Mellow Yellow":

The 45 version had the lyrics "I'm just mad about 14-year old girls and their just mad about me" as the lyrics. Most stations refused or stopped playing it and the 45 was re-released with "I'm just mad about 14 and she's just mad about me". This little fact has been swept under the rug over the years.

Are you sure? That sounds like an urban myth. The lyrics wouldn't fit the beat if there were more words.
