    Sex Rolf Harris arrested on suspicion of sex offences

    Information
    Rolf Harris arrested on suspicion of further sex offences while answering police bail

    Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris has been arrested for a second time following fresh allegations of sexual offences.

    The 83-year-old Australian, who now resides in Bray, Berkshire, answered police bail today and was told that he faces additional claims.

    The arrest came the day after he made a rare public appearance at Wickham Festival in Hampshire, where he greeted fans with a loud 'G'day!' and became emotional as he thanked them for their support.

    Harris was first arrested in March by detectives from Operation Yewtree, the national investigation launched in the wake of abuse claims made against disgraced television presenter Jimmy Savile.

    He had his first musical hit, Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport, in 1960, and continued to enjoy success in the industry, gaining cult status in recent years and performing at Glastonbury festival several times.

    He also proved popular as a television presenter, getting his first big break in 1967 when he began hosting his own BBC1 programme, The Rolf Harris Show, before moving on to children's television in the Eighties and then to Animal Hospital, which he hosted from 1994 to 2004.

    Harris, who has lived in Bray for more than 50 years, was awarded an MBE in 1968, an OBE in 1977 and a CBE in 2006; and was made Officer of the Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday Honours list last year.

    No surely not, it must all be a terrible mistake!

    I refuse to believe it!






    But then again I always wondered about someone who'd tie their kangaroo down.

    It might account for their odd sexual preferences.

    Australian beaten by 7-man gang behind South Pattaya Market

    A 52 year old Australian was beaten by a group of 7 young men after he was forced to stop his motorbike behind the South Pattaya Road Market in the early hours of Tuesday.
    Mr. Edward Spiller made his way to Pattaya Police Station after the incident and was assisted by his transsexual partner who was with him at the time.

    He explained to Police that the pair were riding back to Mr. Spiller’s apartment when a group of 7 men on three motorbikes drove past them and appeared to stare at Mr. Spiller before driving off.

    At the end of the street the gang had set-up a roadblock forcing Mr. Spiller to stop his bike. He was the set-upon by the gang and one of them attempted to steal his motorbike but Mr. Spiller was able to prevent the theft.

    The group then drove off in the direction of Pattaya Third Road and Mr. Spiller made his way to the Police Station. Minor injuries were sustained to the Australian and nothing of value was stolen from him during the attack.

    ROLF Harris has been axed from his TV show — days after being arrested for a second time following further allegations of sexual offences.
    A little harsh, he hasn't even been found guilty yet.

    Singer. Presenter. Honoured royal painter. Paedophile.

    Rolf Harris faces jail after being found guilty on 12 counts of indecent assault on girls as young as seven.

    Where did it all go wrong Rolf?

    I really cannot see the point in giving him a custodial sentence for these historic offences, though I suspect the judge has no other meaningful options.

    The victims have been in a prison of his making for many years, maybe if he'd admitted his crimes before the trial the victims wouldn't have needed to re-live their nightmare.

    What, you mean let him off to enjoy the remainder of his life with his 11 million GBP fortune?
