Rolf Harris has been arrested for the second time on suspicion of sexual offences under the Operation Yewtree investigation. The 82-year-old entertainer was re-arrested on Monday following further allegations made to the inquiry into sexual offences by Jimmy Savile and others. He has previously denied allegations of wrongdoing.

Harris was initially held in March and was interviewed under caution by Operation Yewtree officers last November. He was re-bailed until August after his second arrest on Monday.

The Metropolitan police did not name Harris, but he was identified from the police's case number – Yewtree 5.

Scotland Yard said: "This individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'others'. We are not prepared to discuss further, nor comment on, the identity of who the man arrested may be."

I ran into Rolf one day at a supermarket, I said to him that I was a big fan, and I remember when he did 'Two Little Boys' back in the 1970's. He told me to get lost and not confuse him with Garry Glitter.

  this is a very complex case...

 the prosecutor badgered him about whether telling a 13 yr-old she looked good in a bikini was a sexual remark...eventually Harris said he supposed it was...

 now if they charged all men who make comments about young girls in bikinis, especially with some teenagers maturing very early, then most of the male population would be in trouble...

 they have evidence of him groping girls...

 back twenty or more years ago it was very common for guys to grope girls...not right, I might add...but it happened a lot...most girls would just slap the guy's hand and tell him to bugger off before she called the cops...if they dredged up all the gropings and took the blokes to trial, the courts would be overflowing...

 if the girls Harris groped were under-age, then that is sick...and punishable, even in retrospect...but if they were adults, then they should have done something at the time...

 as for the pornography on his computer...well. just about every adult I know has watched porn either on DVD or the internet...so long as it's not child porn, then it's a non-issue...

 I am not on his side...he is obviously a dirty old man...but they have yet to come up with anything substantial that would justify a long imprisonment...

 I feel for his poor wife...

I didn't miss your good joke Saintly.>>>>>

Women are entitled to the respect of not being harassed .   Very easy to get the "not interested message across" , after that it is serious harassment.
By the way , Flirtatious women don't help the cause but the unwritten law in my book is , their is a time and place for everything and the workplace especially , isn't one of them .      Any man who even thought of molesting a child .   Hang Him.

yeah !LOL now that would be an incentive to be VERY supportive , wouldnt it !!
imagine getting to her age and still having to live off Dad,s hand outs !!  says a lot for her doesnt it .
now she is sucking up and crossing everything she has , in the hopes that 19 mill doesnt slip thru those grasping fingers !

should have been daughter in pp, but you get the drift anyway.

A correspondence was mentioned in court when she was on the stand where she recently wrote to him to hurry up and get his will up to date. Suggested that this was a pre-condition to her support

Poor old Rolf is down the gurgler , for mine.
I just hope Bindi does not get it all.
She seems to me to be one of those people who act like they are innocent, but they have been molested,  and cant admit it,  because they have been brainwashed into pleading innocent.

you know ?
those people who for one reason or another, get molested, or kidnapped, or whatever.
like patty hearst .  once they got her they brain washed her.
and they get brain washed into thinking its all good .
i am not saying this too well, but its like women who live with abusers , and stay in that scene, because they dont know any other scene .
OMG,,,not doing too well on explaining this.
but, do you think Bindi might have been so long into this stuff , called normal by her father,  she thinks its all OK ??

The thing that bothers me with this whole case is that he 84 or something, and has been out there for 6 decades. Sex offenders with that much access you would think there would be more than 4 people with a complaint against him. They made a worldwide appeal to find 'victims', travelled to interview them, but could only come up with 4 in 60 odd years. Seems strange to me

The case against Harris is obviously not that strong, all the 'bad' character witnesses talking about groping and roving hands, are seemingly needed to re-inforce the case involving sex with an underage girl(s), which is surely the main issue.

Good point BD...you would think that someone with his power/influence would have been a lot more active. At 84 I think it is a bit over the top

I am not saying he hasn't done anything, but like with Saville and with Hughes, they came out of the woodwork to point the finger. This case seems like they have struggled to find 4, some of which are questionable. Remember not long ago they were charging him with child pornography and then dropped it. It seems as someone said they are trying to make the case for that one girl who claimed underage sex, and stuff like inappropriate pictures was to support that argument.

I wouldn't be surprised if he gets off. It all seems a bit weak

i do agree with you, BD.
i do wonder why its taken all these years to come out.
it has always puzzled me why its taken so long for folks to come and speak up.
but,,knowing how it was back then, i can also relate to that silence.
we, as in my family, had a " nasty man " , and i know how it affected many girls in the family.
it takes lots of guts , and back then, one hoped it would be believed.
sadly, often, it wasnt.

The case against him is rather weak compared to others.
