I wonder how many more 'dead' people they are going to out before we get to the ones still alive and kicking and covering up abusing kids in care homes

article seems a bit flimsy in all honesty, bbc men tried to rape someone, seemingly they gave up, rossiter performed a sex act close by. Hmmm, seems a bit fishy.

Well you can say what you like about someone who has died, obviously. I am more interested in the people who are still alive. We only get one side of the story when someone has died and it must be dreadful for his family. Very little evidence and at the moment the media are hysterical about padeophilia in showbiz. It is time to STOP all these articles about TV stars being arrested and wait until the police make arrests before speculating as to who these people MAY be. I still find it hard to believe that so many people were molested, nobody went to the police, some say there was so traumatised that did not tell their partners etc until recently and then appear on national TV, discussing all the details and rushing off to claim financial compensation!! The Headmistress of the Reform School that Saville visited insists that NOT ONE girl mentioned Saville behaviour. He came to the school with tickets for his show, ciggies and money!!! In her opinion the girls were not going to "kill the golden goose!" by telling on him!! She seems to have missed the point that these girls were underage and should have been protected!!

Are they using the names of dead people to cover up the here and now. If it is untrue it is a terrible shame that LR is blackened plus his poor family. Also if it is true then I dont know what to think as it wasnt him who was trying to rape.

I'd be very sad if this turns out to be true. I haven't seen Rossiter's name anywhere on the web in connection with this kind of behaviour (as opposed to other names which appear time and again).

Rossiter was a womaniser (Sue MacGregor wrote about her affair with him in her memoirs, IIRC). But who knows? The Savile allegations are giving lots of victims of this awful kind of behaviour the courage to come forward.

There are people still living who could and should be brought to trial. So far only Glitter and Starr have been questioned by the police.

Would YOTSO have been rehearsed at Television Centre though?, it would have been at the Acton hilton or some such, surely?

I thought in those days the only rehearsal rooms at television centre were the actual studios on recording days.

A disgraceful story devised by people who, quite frankly, couldn't care less about the abuse victims as long as it gives them more ammunition to bash the BBC with.

I can see the Murdoch family and the owners of the Daily Mail giving orders to their reporters. "Go for dead celebs associated with the BBC, and dig out all the dirt. Do all that you can to avoid Conservative paedos being mentioned. And for God's sake don't any of you dare mention that it's now public knowledge that the last Conservative Prime Minister had an affair with one of his ministers and cheated on his wife while going on in his speeches about family values. Remember, the BBC are a bunch of Satanists, the Conservatives are perfect. Now get to it."

I am wondering if this is the big name celebrity that Jim Davidson was saying in his blog that would shock us.

According to the front of one of todays papers some celebrities still alive can expect a knock on the door sooner rather than later.

Scumbag Murdoch strikes again.

Hateful man whose death will spark a long celebration for many in this country, I believe.

Didn't he say the one he was referring to was alive?

That is the whole point of them.

The tabloids have been ordered to muck rake about dead celebs so that the public tire of the allegations.

Then they will refuse to believe the true stories about the organised abuse involving politicians and other establishment figures that was carried out in childrens care homes in the past 40 years.

The news agenda in this country is constantly manipulated in this way. It is all about misdirection. They want people to be looking in one direction so they can not see what is going on elsewhere

Oh god, not another spurious 'I was abused by a (dead) star' story.

Murdoch hates the Beeb and he'll do anything to bring them down even more than they've been brought down already.

I doubt it, this story does not mention the complainant other ones have , so either the complainat wants to remain anonymous or it is a dubious source.

Also whilst if this is true then it will have been awful for the person this to be perfectly honest is not paedophile territory, it would be a sexual assault by the unamed men involved and Rossiter watching , so I dont think it is the big shock mentioned.

If I were Leonard Rossiters family I'd sue any newspaper that named him in connection with sexual abuse - let them prove it. Same with any other dead people's families; any live person arrested will get the opportunity to contest, with the help of lawyers, the allegations made against them, but the dead can't speak so it's up to their families to speak for them.

The whole thing is getting so ridiculous, I fully expect Eric and Ernie to be next to be accused, with the Daily Mail ever so helpfully reminding us of their famous 'in bed together' scenes. Or will it be the Ronnie Barker, with his son's proclivities used as 'evidence' against him? I guess some people are drawing up a list already.

PS. I'd better make it clear that I've only used these men's names as examples of how ANY dead person could be accused of paedophilia or other sexual offences, I don't for a minute think any of them are guilty of anything.

Quoted for the truth. Polictians Police Judicery.Church etc seem to fly under the radar and I believe these to be the worst culprits.Simple fact is the are in positions to take care of each other.

Taken from The Dail Fail's version of events

"The accuser was an 18-year-old extra on the set of a controversial BBC play titled The Year of the Sex Olympics when the attacks took place in 1968.

The pair were ordered to strip off and smothered in gold paint during filming of the weird play, in which Rossiter - who died aged 57 in 1984 - played the co-ordinator of judges presiding over couples having sex".

I don't like the use of the word "ordered" in the above paragraph - they make it sound like this was part of the attack, when in fact this bloke was an extra, presumably being paid to act out the part of a gold paint smothered naked person.

If he felt he was being "ordered" to do anything he didn't like, why didn't he just refuse the job. He was hardly in the same position as an under-aged child, in a childrens home or in hospital, being taken advantage of by a pervy visitor to their place of care.

Obviously, I don't know if the "attempted rape" did actually happen, but if he was that bothered by what happened, why not come forward when Rossiter died all those years ago? Call me cynical, but it seems that if you come forward now, you have the sniff of compensation.

Well in a sense they are not lieing are they, we can all expect a knock on the door sooner or later , they dont actually say who from.

To me that is about as dubious as when they say "a source" which generally means they have made it up.

It has swiftly gone beyond the boundaries of bad taste, to the extent where nobody can decide what to believe anymore.

Let's face it, anybody could come out and say something about a person who is dead, as there is not going to be any comeback.

Genuinely innocent names could be blackened amidst this grotesque 'campaign' and they don't even have a right to reply.
