    Another person accused? How many more are there going to be? :|

    If its a genuine accusation then of course, justice must be found, but this seems to be happening on a weekly basis now. It seems odd how every single one of these people would wait this length of time before coming out about it... I don't know, something just doesn't add up.

    Also it's been annoying me how literal z listers have been jumping on the bandwagon. The most annoying, Kerry Katona getting a front page cover about Jimmy Saville. Her story? He looked at her creepily... Those in it for the money should be ashamed of themselves, this is starting to turn into a circus now and people will eventually start to not really believe any genuine victims :/

    Can you imagine if the police had waited just a few more days to arrest him, when he was actually inside the Celebrity Big Brother house lol, police walk in and arrest him on suspicion of sex offences live on TV hahah

    That would have been crazy, I think thats why he was arrested just before, it would have caused quite a stir if he was being endorsed by a TV program when he may have commited sexual offences.

    I don't even like Jim Davidson but this is getting beyond a joke now. No one can prove these claims one way or the other. I can't imagine how much it would suck to have the finger pointed at me when half the country will never change their minds.
    You sound nervous.
    Something to hide?

    I could see jim davidson arrest coming sooner or later, rubbish 70s light entertainers are running for the hills..

    Its trial by media, these people should be given anonymity unless they've actually been convicted of something. Im not condoning their possible actions in the slightest, by it is innocent until proven guilty for a reason.

    Another 'big' name has been arrested in part of the Saville investigation

    I know I probably shouldn't say this but out of all the people I really hope he goes down, I can't stand the bloke.
    No, it's unrelated.

    Jim Davidson's arrest should not be considered quite in the same way as the allegations against Jimmy Savile, though serious offences if he is tried and convicted. The two women were not schoolgirls at the time, not in hospital either, as many of those thought to be Savile's victims.

    Yes I know that now but at the time I wrote that it was being reported as part of the Saville enquiry. I think I posted stating it was unrelated or I may have forgot.

    People have been found guilty of historical sexual assaults and rapes where the only evidence against them was the multiple number of complainants.
    The issue is that what's considered "sexual assault" must have changed so much over the years. I'm not saying the actual laws have changed (although they have, but that's not relevant to my point), but I mean that back then slapping your secretary on the arse for example would have been normal behaviour. Although in hindsight it could be argued to count as sexual assault under the laws of the time, they probably didn't think that at the time.

    It's not hard to imagine someone like Jim Davidson being guilty of "light" sexual assault (i.e. a bit of inappropriate touching), but it seems a bit unfair to prosecute him now for what probably loads of people did back then and no one batted an eyelid.

    It would be like going round arresting people for telling racist jokes in public back in the 80s because nowadays doing that is considered to be illegal offensive behaviour. It's not good behaviour now, and it wasn't then, but it also seems unfair to permit it for so long, only to go back and arrest people for it many years later.

    Should have arrested him for being an unfunny ****.
    If they did that with him they'd also have to arrest a ton of other people.

    That's not really what you said. You said "I hope the gays teach him a lesson" which basically translates as "I hope he gets raped." Even though he hasn't been charged let alone found guilty.

    I meant I don't care if he is. I think he is a disgusting homophobe,whether he is found guilty of child abuse offences or not is not relevant to me. I hope he suffers anyhow.

    Aye, why in some cases such as rape I do believe that the accused should remain anonymous until proven guilty.

    He must have been up to his old tricks again as he has been rearrested.
