Just to remind everybody, Clement Freud was accused by three women years after he had died. He was not able to give his side of the story. We are told that , in the UK, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty ? Clearly not applicable to anyone with the name Freud.
Back in England in 1952, Sylvia’s mother’s marriage fell apart — and to the 14-year-old’s horror she was sent to London to live in the care of Freud in his marital home.
She said: “He used to sort of touch me a lot, quite a lot.”
On the occasion he molested her and whispered that she felt like her mother, she remembers thinking: “He’s slept with my mother.”
After fleeing the Freud home at the age of 19, Sylvia confessed all about the abuse to the family’s nanny, who in turn told Lady Freud.
"After watching an advance screening of the film Lady Freud, now 89, said in a statement: “I am shocked, deeply saddened and profoundly sorry for what has happened to these women. I sincerely hope they will now have some
The abuse left Sylvia damaged and depressed, and her life was later blighted by suicide attempts.
It was only when she reached her 40s that she felt strong enough to challenge Freud, by then a celebrated chef, TV panel show guest, and MP
She revealed: “I said, ‘Why, why me?’ And he said, ‘Because I loved you, you were a very sensual little girl”
Then in 1987, the year Freud was knighted, Sylvia told his wife that she had not been lying all those years before, and claims Lady Freud admitted: “I think now it’s possible that what you said was the truth.”
The revelations have also drawn new attention to Lady Freud’s own affair with Jonathan “Joss” Self, brother of writer Will Self, when she was 47 and he was just 16.
Freud first found fame as a celebrity chef and owner of a London club known for its lewd cabarets.
He later boasted that he had given the now-disgraced Rolf Harris his big break, after booking him for the club’s show.
Next stop was politics, and he became an MP in 1973, sharing an office with fellow Liberal Cyril Smith, who was unmasked as being a serial child sex abuser after his death.
I just wish you had explained your theory about the eyes without having to distort facts and pick on the grandson of Sigmund Freud. Clearly, you hate the work of Sigmund Freud. Or is there a more sinister reason ?
