I'm not excusing any of this scandal and child abuse, but it WAS a different time. Many of the rich and famous took advantage of the more relaxed
attitudes to have their evil way with kids.
I remember being a leader on summer camps in the 80s where we had mixed pyjama parties and we went to beaches where boys and girls changed together!
You couldn't do that now with the child protection legislation. It was all innocent (in my mind) at the time and I was in my teens, but you can see
where the evil people would get involved to take advantage.
Someone like Saville, who was a 'celebrity' (and some rock stars - remember Bill Wyman with 13 year old Mandy Smith?) who had peadophile tendencies
could use their status to talk the youngsters into it. It's only now, with the different attitude, that these deeds can be brought to light.
To be a Devil's Advocate (sorry for that pun!) but would be it possible for some of the kids, teenagers even, to take advantage of the celebrity too?
'Hey, I've just done it with a rockstar!' kind-of thing? Not saying they all did of course, but maybe a small minority.
