Just been reading this.

Looking back to when I was a kid back then it was very much a man's world. Someone like Jimmy who was also a celeb what kid would have been believed back then?
It's just so sickening that there was a report in 1964 and ignored. Probably because he was a big name and a man and women and kidsback then it would have been their word against his. If the police had followed up this report in 1964 then decades of abuse may have been stopped.
That's the thing about the past. It was good in a lot of ways but not so good with things like this.
Just been reading a story about playwright Allan Bennett. He thought it was okay back then to let old gentlemen touch up his legs.
