"inappropriate behaviour" by Rush ? No further details, just named by a newspaper. You do get the feeling this could develop into a witch-hunt, and innocent people have their reputations destroyed. Don Burke has 200-odd people complaining about his antics, so we have to say all bets are off there, he is just a disgrace.

Rush is seemingly very upset about it, and who could blame him. Has no option but to sue, in my opinion. If he does not, the suspicion there is something to it, will persist.

Being the victim of an unwanted amorous advance (or even a compliment!) by someone who you knocked back more than 20 years ago is the New Black ... if you don't have a story, if you can't say "me too!Cry" your not one of the cool kids!

This is the new opportunity for straight white women to be victims too!Clap

Don't be fooled by pleas of innocence. The Churches, Salvos, Boy Scouts were good at them too. It's not just kids that have been historically powerless in society.

The system of criminal justice is founded on the principle that complaints have to be proven beyond reasonable doubt, the accused is not obliged to demonstrate his innocence. And so it should be, and remain, or it would quickly run out of control. For a newspaper to report a named person has been accused of "inappropriate behaviour" by a theatre company, tells us nothing, but does damage the reputation of the accused, especially in the context of the current Burke revelations. But we really see no sign of any police action coming with Burke. That whole story is more about the culture at channel 9, rotten from the top down.

Another one for Burke this morning after 30 years.

    The loveable lady states .    Don Left her stranded in a Motel Room when she refused his advances.

Staggering = point one ,   What is she doing in a motel room in the first place and secondly = What did he do wrong ,   she rejected him and he left.

I blame Packer, Susie O'Neill asked him to pull a TV segment with the obnoxious Burke, he allegedly agreed to do so, but did not follow through.

because he lured her to the city with a promise of a job when all along it was just an excuse to bed her, allegedly Smile She rejected his advances and he left her alone and helpless, fortunately she had a friend in town she could stay with. Do some research mush for brains

Most victims came after the hierarchy were aware , and some of those in charge at the time now admit they were aware and say they were unable to do anything as Burke had become his own company by then.
Appears even Packer chose the dollar over taking Burke off air.

Fault isn't only with Burke & the Network either.     Plenty are prepared to go from the casting couch to the glitter of TV .    It is the Worlds oldest profession I'm told.

Any lady since the year dot who is invited to a Mans Motel Room , would have to know there are "deals" facing her.
Saves me answering The Fish's abuse post.    . Ones word against the other, so after 30 years I'm inclined to be on Burke's side on that one.        . the Man is Psychotic beyond doubt, none the less.

Not many people really come out looking good, do they ? And this grub is alleged to have presented himself nude to under-age girls, and no-one made a police complaint ? Remarkable.

wrong again, this girl was naive, thought they were going to go over her job requirements, for the show, not sexual ones. Very innocent true but some are like that.

Get your facts right you fool

Not good form to be bad-mouthing Rush, on what has been heard so far, imo. Just an unspecified accusation of "inappropriate behaviour", supposedly made by an unnamed person. Terribly weak.

May be isolated, no pile on so far, but the ''offense'' has apparently been verified by 2 witnesses

The "ABUSE " Fish, must have had a hot line into bedrooms all that time .     . He posts with such accuracy after 30 years .     WHY did they wait so long .. Was the lady too naïve for Burke's back yard also.
Maybe that's why Burke walked out.

This is a bit like the battle of Stalingrad .      > The feminists are relentless on all fronts ( pardon the pun ).

We may have to regroup , but their new weapon ( the YES vote ) could cause problems.

I think Geoffrey is a very good friend of many very powerful celebrities in Hollywood and Australia so is getting better treatment than what Rolf Harris got in the early hours.
