The person retweeting Ms Dux's message is Rachel Johnson a journalist and author of the following article in todays Daily Mail newspaper !
I only became aware of this article because of this !
I feel very uncomfortable with this article on a number of levels, the first being the fact that it refers to a case that is STILL in progress, indeed the trial is BEING HEARD with a verdict expected in the nest few days !
But let’s pause to recap where we are on the showbiz trial front: Freddie Starr, Paul Gambaccini and Jimmy Tarbuck remain on bail, Bill Roache and Michael Le Vell have been acquitted, Max Clifford and Rolf Harris are awaiting trial, and the Dave Lee Travis trial is ongoing.
The 'showbiz trial front' ? This is NOT a game Ms Johnson, these men's lives will never be the same again.
Perhaps Ms Johnson means well, she is, after all, interested in 'ordinary women' and the negative effect high profile acquitals may have on any potential case/claim they may have ?
Was it 'ordinary women' who attended the prep schools Ms Dux refers to later in the article ? I don't remember the last time I heard of a lass from Barking reminising about her Tina Brown's Schooldays !
Ms Johnson swiftly responded to the above tweet which in turn, led to an interesting exchange !
Not wishing to confuse the reader, my response at 3m, is my attempt to bring Sir Jimmy into the exchange. Ms Dux says the following in the mail
‘One person coming forward isn’t enough,’ she says. ‘You need documentary evidence, a past conviction, for courts to find evidence cogent.’
