Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest

So, the BBC has been fined £210000 for its American style, over the top reportage of the police raid on Cliff Richard's house following an allegation of sexual abuse against the entertainer, which subsequently turned out to be bogus. They are not happy and are, more than likely, going to appeal.

One wonders how much of the licence payers' money the BBC bigwigs are prepared to spend trying to defend an action that I'm pretty certain most of the licence payers believe they should all be sacked for.

Demanding the right to make unsubstantiated accusations of sexual abuse headline news on the basis that the public have the right to know is a bit rich coming from a corporation that spent over fifty years covering up the crimes of the serial sex offender, Jimmy Saville.
