I have a slightly different perspective on this which is more long term. I'd like to think that the more these people are exposed in the media the more chance there is of the abused feeling braver to step forward. The one danger as they found with rape is that the stigma on the totally innocent is sometimes incredibly hard to shake off. Pedophilia is abhorrent but you also have the added dynamic of immaturity and false accusation. Apologies for the over generalisation and simplification. I'm on a ciggie break with a call in 1 minute

No, I think you've hit the nail on the head. Like rape, a lot of those affected probably think they "brought it on themselves" or they "deserved it" which is of course, absolute rubbish.

All the money and time that has been wasted on trying to make him out to be one! :facepalm:

It doesn't prove his guilt or his innocence, it just means the CPS couldn't get enough evidence or reliable witnesses. He will always be linked to this sort of thing because of men now coming forward with their allegations, and because of his friendship with Ronnie Kray and Lord Boothby, 2 serious boy abusers. Also, he was a visitor(Some say frequent) to the Elm Guest House in Barnes, a notorious boy brothel, where other celebrities and politicians used to frequent. This is where some of the abuse is meant to have taken place, as some boys were lured to the house from the Grafton childrens home only to be groomed, abused or raped.

There's plenty of murderers hanged in prison in unmarked graves within prison yards in the UK. There's a few others who should have joined them in, in my opinion.
