    There's a programme coming on ITV which alleges that he was a paedophile, using his position to abuse young girls. Apparently there are women who have come forward to relate their stories regarding him.
    If true it's amazing how it didn't come out while he was alive, another cover up?

    I heard about this in the '80s.

    And it was little boys.

    The story in the link says that the victims in the programme were young girls. If there were boys involved as well that will surely come out now.

    When one person comes forward it may be a bit of a shock for his family but as it states there are women who was young girls at the time....

    . wonder why its taken this long to be said

    You can't get done for making allegations about dead people can you?

    You can make yourself look pretty stupid if you can't back them up. Not good if you're a serious journalist.

    Yes, it does matter and if they blame his genes then we can watch out for the rest of the family can't we.

    The guy was a complete and utter c**t. He was just another rich, flamboyant and powerful person who got away with it. Then somebody who is just off the street can make relatively minor transgressions and have their life ruined.

    Never understood how he got where he did,he always came across to me as a weird creep...not the eccentric uncle the press made him out to be.
