Well the title’s my new rhyming slang for a sexual predator. Yep dear old Rolf has been found guilty of 12 charges of assault against young girls and women, with further charges now likely. And this isn’t your Dave Lee Travis pat-your-bum levels of touchiness we’re talking about here. It’s invasive assault on young girls in the most intimate places. One girl, his own daughter’s best friend, was targeted when she was barely in her teens. He’s been grooming young children for years for his own gratification and has lied and lied about his culpability. All that holding of hands for the press with his dutiful and supportive wife and daughter. They couldn’t bear to touch him apparently when the cameras had all been switched off. There’s something about this case which is just dirtier and sicker than the other cases under Operation Yewtree. Saville was simply evil and there was always something weird and nasty about him. Stuart Hall looked like a dirty douche bag and Max Clifford a complete sleazeball creep. But Harris gave off this aura of niceness, child friendly, a bit wacky but a thoroughly decent guy. He did promotional films for christ’s sake advising children and their parents about the dangers of predatory behaviour and grooming. And the dirty sweaty goat was already abusing kids under the noses of his family and close friends. He’s not just sick he’s a cynical pervert and I hope that the sisters don’t show him too much mercy inside.
Is that the last of these dreadful cases being brought? I bloody hope so.
