It was reported today that PR guru Max Clifford has been arrested by special police Operation Yewtree in relation to alleged ‘sexual offenses’, and there is speculation that information held by Max Clifford about political and celebrity clients’ criminal pedophile activity has been kept hidden away from both police and the public.
As off this at least 2pm this afternoon, Max Clifford and Associates website, www.maxclifford.com has been down, but it is not yet clear whether or not this closure is in relation to the PR kingpin’s arrest today. It could be due to incredibly server traffic as a result of Clifford’s detention.
Clifford, aged 69, is said to have been held this morning by the Met’s ‘Savile’ unit Yewtree, apparently on suspicion of sexual offences and taken into custody for questioning at Yewtree’s central London police operating base. The arrest was also confirmed by Clifford’s legal team, Mishcon de Reya, this afternoon.
Ironically, it was Clifford who himself said he was contacted by a number of celebrities from the 1960s and 1970s who were “frightened to death” about a Savile ‘witch-hunt’ and feared they could be implicated in the wider scandal.
At the time Clifford said, “All kinds of things went on and I do mean young girls throwing themselves at them in their dressing rooms at concert halls, at gigs, whatever”.
Last month 21st Century posed the key question amid total silence from both BBC and the mainstream media – as to whether or not Max Clifford was fit to be the ambassador for the BBC’s charity Children in Need.
This recently leaked video of Clifford boasting about how he ‘knows where all the bodies are buried’, and how he helped cover for the late Tory MP’s Alan Clark’s violation of two underage Harkess girls in exchange for fees and successful book sales, should have been enough for the police to arrest Clifford on the spot for questioning regarding the matter. But that didn’t happen.
Watch the video again here:
It’s possible that events today might have just answered that question. That said, in light of this gross oversight by the public broadcaster, the public should be questioning whether the BBC Trust itself is competent enough – or relevant enough, to be the guardians of a multi-billion dollar public institution.
Remember, you heard that question here first – and not at the Times, BBC, Telegraph, Guardian or Independent.
Will police go all they way, and find out who Clifford has been covering for and who the victims are?
Stay tuned for more revelations and exposures regarding institutional paedophilia festering in high places.
