Ooh, Bill ‘Baloney’ Maloney will not like this!
Charlotte ‘Jacqui Farmer’ Ward will be mightily p***ed off too. A few days ago, she put up two sickeningly sycophantic posts in support of Fellows and stated: “We believe 100% that what Ben said is true.”
We’d love to ask her why she automatically believes everything someone she’s never met says but what are the odds that we’d get a straight answer? Or any answer at all?
Anyway, here’s a précis of the article:
An actor who claimed he was sexually assaulted by former Chancellor Kenneth Clarke has been described as “a fantasist” in court…subsequent checks found inaccuracies in his account…Mr Fellows claimed the attack had taken place while he was working on an undercover sting for ITV’s Cook Report…He also said he had been abused by a number of people in the entertainment industry, including a senior female executive at the BBC…
Mr Fellows, who was described by prosecutors as “an inventive and sometimes persuasive fantasist”, claimed he been invited to a cocaine-fuelled party on BBC premises hosted by two of its biggest stars at the time…But officers concluded his version of events was false…members of the Cook Report team had said they were unaware of the allegation when interviewed by police…They had not seen a video showing abuse and none of them recalled Mr Clarke even being in the lobbyist’s office…
In October 2012, Mr Fellows was interviewed by journalist Jack Malvern from the Times newspaper. He gave Mr Malvern his account of the allegation against Mr Clarke and made a series of other allegations which the reporter had found “troubling” when he tried to check them out, the court heard. He also found inaccuracies in Mr Fellows’ claims about his time at the Sylvia Young Theatre School…
Mr Fellows denies perverting the course of justice between November 14 2012 and December 1 2012.
The trial continues.
Of course, the troofers’ inevitable response to this will be that the satanic Beeb is in on the whole ‘cover-up’, along with the Police. Naturally, no evidence will be produced to support such claims and besides, Bill and Ben say it’s true, so it must be. Flobalobalobalob!
For the record – and I know we’ve covered this before – we at HR do not claim there is no corruption in the Police, nor that the Beeb’s record on ethical behaviour is flawless, nor that politicians are saints. However, we do insist on the importance of evidence, logic and robust cross-examination when serious allegations are made against individuals (as with the Hampstead child abuse allegations, for example). It’s called ‘innocent until proven guilty’ and is a cornerstone of a democratic society. Ironically, it’s the very same axiom which affords Mr. Fellows the right to defend himself against accusations of perverting the course of justice. Yet sadly, the likes of Maloney, Ward and Fellows need constantly reminding of this basic right.
PS: Ben grew up just round the corner from Hoaxtead fruitcake Justyna ‘Stop killing babies’ Rzeska. I wonder whether they know each other. Now there’s a pair you wouldn’t want to get stuck in a lift with!
