Goodness gracious me ! How hard it is to ascertain the actual date Freddie Starr appeared on Clunk Click. We know when Gary Glitter guested, that was March 16th 1974
But, no trace of the date of Freddie's appearance until this footage just happened to emerge the day Freddie denied being the 'third man' in Savile's dressing room !
Now, guys and gals, here's where things get interesting as one considers this question ! How many media reports appear to place Freddie Starr in the SAME room on the SAME night Gary Glitter appeared ? Turn that question around, how many reports stressed the FACT that they were NOT ? My answer will be, NOT MANY. Freddie Starr certainly felt that at the very least, he was being associated with the convicted Gary and the media convicted dead Savile. Hence his hasty denial
Now, let's get back to the damage Ward caused when she said she was, amongst other things, 14 the night she attended that show. Because she did actually SAY THIS, I finally found these words coming out of her mouth in her Newsnight interview with Liz Mackean on Novemeber 14th 2011.
"I was fourteen, of course I wanted to go to Television centre"
This interview was broadcast on Panorama who like, Meirion Jones did NOT bother to check whether Ms Ward was telling the truth about her age. OR DID THEY ?
Whilst burrowing I came across some old blog posts by Moor Larkin, one of his many bests. I urge you all to read this, it is quite shocking because of what we know now of how Freddie Starr was basically set up by the press and media in October 2012.
Watch that Channel 4 news item yourself. It's hard not to feel the same way about these scum reporter's as Larks
"she was 14 at the time" reporter Channel 4 news October 8th 2012
Look out for other videos of news reports at the time. Whether deliberate or not, the damage done to Mr Starr's reputation HAS BEEN huge
I did isolate ONE article that separated Gary Glitter's appearance from Freddie's on Clunk Click in 1974
But reverts to form in the same publication a few days later
Because, whatever way you look at it, the end result is the same. A horrible horrible injustice !!
To be continued !
