Thats all.

(and how will I ever be able to listen to his songs like "Tie me kangaroo down sport" or "Click go the shears, boys" again?)

I think this one was the one that cut deepest for me. Having been born in 1960 in the UK I grew up watching or listening to Dave Lee Travis, Stuart Hall, Jimmy Saville and the rest but I felt so let down when Rolf was accused :-(

I thought 'surely not Rolf Harris'

The most embarrassing though was Gary Glitter...................back in the 70's I was singing my heart out to 'Do yah wanna be in my gang' and today.......................no way I want to be in his gang :oops:

Thankfully we still have Tony Hart to console our memories with.

I just wonder what kind of network was in place all these years ago for these guys, and Max Clifford with his casting couch, to get involved with this stuff. I mean, so many of them.......

It sure puts a new meaning to his 'two little boys' and their 'two little toys'...

Shame about Harris, and very disturbing how many media people have been untouchable over the years regardless of the crimes they have committed.

I'm not surprised. Any culture that thinks that The Benny Hill show is family entertainment is going to have this bite them on the ass. You don't hear it now but up until the eighties "old enough to bleed, old enough to butcher" was seen as a fair comment.

I originally heard that here in Singapore when I moved into the company flophouse on my arrival back in '82. The flophouse was full of Aussie & Kiwi divers who, as PNGMK can attest, are a pretty raunchy bunch when they feel like it.

I first heard it when working on farms in Australia during my uni breaks

I first heard it at 14 whilst explaining to a 35 year old man why I didn't want to date him.
