i had no idea how revered he was as a commentator until mick jagger commented when the rights to the cricket were changing hand about 10 years ago and benaud would no longer be hosting the cricket, he said that the summer season would not be the same without him and i remember thinking that this is how i would feel whe richie no longer is the first person you saw at the start of the 1st of the cricket season. the fact that someone that has so much would stil feel the same as i suggests that richie was something special to alot of people no matter where they come from.

and i think it is more special when you consider it is for so many different reasons. he symbolized so much of this country and what we love about it from the attacking sportsmen to the fact he could take a joke about him and it did not seem to bother him. his greatest asset was his silence and he used it masterfully. 

in the end, put it simply he comes across as a great family man first and foremost. then a great australian and a great sportsmen and a great commentator. such a brilliant life and i feel he has been part of my life and my childhood and my adulthood and i have no doubt that many others feel the same and i will never forget him.

Watching TV news of Richie's memorial service, I was struck by the resemblance of Richie's widow to her departed husband, it is a peculiar fact, but not uncommon, for long time couples to grow together in appearance as well as mannerisms. Strange, but true.

Do people believe what Fiona Barnett has since said about Richie Benaud?
I had never heard of those allegations. Very sad if its true.

Is there an ongoing investigation into the allegations against people Fiona Barnett is naming?
From what Im hearing, many people are willing to start coming forward.

Was she silenced or something while he was alive? Do people even believe its true?
I had no idea about the allegations.

He was one of my fave commentators. Feel sick even reading about it.

She has named multiple people.
The question is, why isnt she being sued for defamation?
She had made very serious allegations.

Fiona Barnett in her own words...

"The Australian wing of this child trafficking operation is coordinated by ASIO (Australian Security Intelligence Organisation). During the 1970s and 80s, Labour Party politician Kim Beazley Snr headed ASIO’s child trafficking operation. Under Kim Beazley’s administration, I was prostituted, at age 6 years, to a pedophile orgy at Parliament House in Canberra, where I was raped by then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, Attorney-General Lionel Murphy, and Governor-General John Kerr. During this same excursion, future Prime Minister Bob Hawke raped me in a suburban backyard near Canberra, and former President Richard Nixon raped me in the back of a US / CIA military plane at Fairbairn, Australia’s main military airport where Airforce One lands when it visits.


After this, I was child sex trafficked from Sydney airport to California, USA, in a cargo plane. I was gassed and stuffed in a wooden crate like an animal. During this trip, I was raped by media founder Ted Turner at a pedophile party held at Disneyland, and I was trafficked to the annual summer camp at Bohemian Grove attended by notable politicians, businessmen and other VIPs. I was raped by Reverend Billy Graham in a pink bubble themed cabin at Bohemian Grove. Billy Graham told me his good buddy Richard Nixon had recommended me to him. At Bohemian Grove, I was one of a group of children dressed as teddy bears and hunted for sport by men in the forest, to the theme song Teddy Bears Picnic. I also witnessed the ritual murder of a woman by male guests dressed in black Luciferian robes."


She also claims Whitlam and Kerr were gay lovers, that Beazley, Ritchie Benaud and Bruce Spence were key players in the ritual beheading of a dozen children at the Bathurst Town Hall (and claims the authorities failure to DNA test the stage to be proof of a cover up.  And there is also a secret underground railway constructed over thousands of kilometres between Holdsworthy Army base, the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor and the American Pine Gap base in central Australia.

Oh, and she is 'certifiably sane' according to her psychologist friend.  She had herself tested.

I’ll have a stab at that one- because the woman is clearly bonkers. Only a moron would take this stuff remotely seriously, so who would bother going to the effort and expense to sue for damages when there is no “damage”? Your reputation is still intact, you wouldn’t get anything, and if you’re after money she probably doesn’t have two bob to rub together anyway.

Just let the poor woman be.
