Clement Freud - another to add to the paedophile list?

Stories this morning that Clement Freud abused two girls, one of whom lived with his family from the age of 14. His widow has "apologised", which suggests she accepts this as fact. Links also apparently being suggested to the McCanns as he owned a villa in the town where Madeleine went missing....needless to say the media whore McCanns are "horrified" to discover Freud was, apparently, a paedophile.

The fact that his wife doesn't defend him seems to me that she was at least partly aware of what was going on.

That's not how I read it. It says to me that she accepts they're not lying, but doesn't imply that she knew anything about it.

It makes me angry that many of these high profile abusers (alleged or otherwise) are being identified after they are dead & can't be held to account for their sick actions.

People are understandably frightened to come forward whilst they're alive for fear of reprisals.

Not exclusively but there seems to be a lot of it in "privileged" backgrounds.

True - money and the old school tie can buy silence, but I'm sure it's just a very warped view of the world and children shared by a small percentage of rich & poor of every nation.

And his son, a PR executive, worked for the McCanns? Coincidence?

At face value that does seem strange, but apparently CLements wife can prove that her husband was in the UK when Maddie went missing and apparently he was friends with them.

I am sorry to have disappointed you, however, I make no apologies for using the phrase.

Whore may not be the most accurate term to use, but they've profited from the sale of the family silver! I dare say the truth will out once the McCanns die!

As for Freud, not shocked by it, especially with his links with Cyril Smith. There are more revelations to come out about others. They will all be dead when it comes out, but that's how corrupt that world was.
