Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

I'm not surprised at all. Always thought he was a bit weird.

Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

You would think by now it would be easier to filter out the celebs not to be investigated.

Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

I've long since thought that their anonymity should be guaranteed until conviction. Mud sticks and unfortunately even if these allegations have no grounds, there will always be suspicion.

Just throw every celeb from the 70's & 80's in prison, would be cheaper.

Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

My advice - don't become a celebrity. At least not a rich one.

If the cops find the remains of a girl locked up in a trunk...

Well they were warned

Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

If you read the article it refers to a young man, and Billy Graham and Sheffield.

Sir Cliff is out of the UK in Portugal on holiday and if he does feel guilty he won't be coming home will he?

I am sure the police would think about that possibility, and if they want to accuse him they would surely
wait for him to return, and not tip him off with a search warrant.

Re: Sir Cliff, Come on Down.

Apparently he as known about the allegation for some time.
Quote:
Sir Cliff has responded to the police search of his apartment in a statement, which said: "For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online.

"The allegations are completely false. Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen.

"However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice, except it would appear to the press.

"I am not presently in the UK but it goes without saying that I will cooperate fully should the police wish to speak to me. Beyond stating that today's allegation is completely false it would not be appropriate to say anything further until the police investigation has concluded."
