    Looks like Rolf is heading for prison

    The old perv was dumb enough to write a letter to his victims father begging for forgiveness for abusing his daughter. Of course he now says she was older than 13/14 but I reckon the jury will go with the girls side. How long should he get if guilty?, transportation is too good for him!

    Does this really need a new thread?

    There are six weeks of the trial to go, and harris's defence team will obviously say that the letter refers to his involvement with this person in her adulthood.

    Isn't it better to let justice run its course rather than gossiping like a granny curtain twitcher?

    I really wonder about the proclivities of people who witter on and on about this sort of stuff on forums.

    Wouldn't it be better to keep it with the other tut tutting blue rinsers on the daily mail forum?

    I like a bit of gossip and tut tutting, if you don't up to you.

    Although back in the UK, I must confess having trouble keeping up with the supposed catch so far from Operation Yewtree ( Saville, Starr, Davidson, Clifford, some 80 year old broadcaster from up north).

    When I was a lad it was the News of the World giving the lowdown on soliciting in public toilets. There is perhaps something in the point alluded to by an earlier poster that the Brits especially like a bit of tittle tattle of this nature. Does not seem to be such a big thing in Thailand, or am I wrong?

    Obviously a repulsive thing he has commited but at last one who admits it, the rest of them all dragged a long case out screaming innocence.
    Defys belief how much of this shit went on with 'so called' celebrities of the 70/80s.
    Who's next ?, lets open a book, not Benny Hill coz he like his girls blowing him according to one of his girls that was left nothing in his will.

    Are you aware Harris' plea is 'Not Guilty'?

    If someone had been abusing me at the age of 14/15 I would be avoiding them long before I was 28.

    Some weirdo did try it once but I left him holding his nuts.

    I fail to understand how one can be raped thirty times as in the case of one person. Surely if it's not consensual, then you don't go back for more. It smells a bit like the injury claim culture now prevalent, where TV adverts are pushing you to make claims and you share the proceeds.

    Are you referring to the Harris case?

    Yes, good point but he has already admitted toward the charge so although it is terrible for the victim at least he has a conscience unlike that fucking Clifford bastard.

    If he changes his plea then one might infer a conscience. He appears to have admitted in writing to at least having groomed a minor (though whether that was an offence at the time, I don't know).

    In any event, the prosecution is going to tear him to shreds in the witness box. The letter is going to be a very powerful and persuasive piece of evidence for the jury - if he maintains innocence.

    He might top himself.

    I recall at the Jimmy Savile estate sale there was a sketch of Savile with the caricatured face of a fox - drawn by Rolf Harris - I bid for it, but got nowhere near - his art was at its peak value then. Remember thinking it was a strange image - they were friends when drawn (several sketches of Savile done without the foxy face), and maybe partners in crime perchance?

    well his work will be going for a lot less if he gets convicted, I see the queen has gotten rid of the one he did of her, seems to have disappeared.

    Yes, the Savile sketch was estimated at GBP 100 I think.
    It sold for about a grand.

    His oil paintings were trading for mid-five figures Sterling just 3-4 yrs ago.

    Done with a paint roller though. "Can you giss what it is, yit?"

    The courtroom sketch artist will be under a fair amount of pressure again.
