by officers on Operation Yewtree. Where's it going to end? Is anyone not a sexual offender?*

* Yes I know plenty aren't.

Be carefull there is a super injunction rumour!

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 13:51:08

Imagine the dirt he has on the rest of them

Does it make a difference chrismissy if its the police who release the name? I know they released Stuart Hall's name to try and encourage other victims to come forward.

Max Clifford, one of the best known publicists in Britain, has been arrested by officers investigating sexual abuse claims against Jimmy Savile and others.

The Metropolitan police said on Thursday morning that officers working on Operation Yewtree arrested "a man in his sixties" at his Surrey home at 7.04am "on suspicion of sexual offences".

Clifford, 69, is the arrestee. He has been taken to a central London police station for questioning.

I thought the one mentioned on here not Max has a SI.

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 13:57:50

a SI? confused Oh, tie the kangaroo?

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 13:58:25

Do I need those posts removed?

FivesGoldNorks Thu 06-Dec-12 13:58:45

Yes he has been arrested on suspicion of sexual offences, not perverting the course of justice

KrisMoose Thu 06-Dec-12 13:59:38

How would anyone know there was a SI? The whole point of a SI rather and an I is that even the knowledge of it being there can't be revealed.

<head explodes> hope you understand me

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 14:00:36

Because Kris the name hasn't been mentioned in any mainstream media yet is out there

I got the SI info and name from reading another site.

KrisMoose Thu 06-Dec-12 14:01:33

Oh, I see. My Mum saw his name on twitter confused

Frontpaw Thu 06-Dec-12 14:02:29

This thread will go if you keep naming the other one.

headfairy Thu 06-Dec-12 14:06:23

chrissy the police usually do. I know they wanted to with RH but he's got a high court writ, rightly so I think in his case. He's not been charged or even arrested but any association with Operation Yewtree is tantamount to conviction by media.

Frontpaw Thu 06-Dec-12 14:06:35

I never got bad vibes from either of them tbh. I suspect someone is pointing fingers and Clifford is an easy target because of his work - people assume he is hiding unpalatable truths about his clients, but he did say that if he suspected someone he would tell the police, and I did believe him when he said that. Maybe he is being asked about ex/clients.

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 14:06:40

Have reported form MNHQ to sort out. No more naming the other guy.

KrisMoose Thu 06-Dec-12 14:07:36

Surely they want Max Clifford to do a plea bargain and reveal what he knows...

I know this thread will go poof...
