Rolf Harris finally gives a sign that he accepts his conviction
If yesterday’s revelations by The Sunday People are true, in making secret offers to pay compensation to his victims, the disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris has finally come to accept that he is guilty of horrific crimes against children and others.
Guilty of twelve sex attacks on girls as young as 13, Harris has supposedly asked his lawyers to offer compensation to his alleged victims as an attempt to stave offer further claims as more alleged victims of his crimes come forward.
Of the offers, one alleged victim, a woman now aged 85, remarked:
“How he thinks he can give you money to shut up and go away is sick. Harris was always so arrogant and thought he could get away with anything. He just can’t accept he was caught”.
Elsewhere, Marketing magazine revealed that Paddy Power scrapped an advertising campaign featuring Harris earlier this month. Featuring an image of the paedophile, the advert was accompanied by the caption: “The only Aussie we don’t want to get out”. A spokesman for the company remarked: “We decided that, on balance, although potentially amusing for the cricket fan, the sentiment of the advert crossed the line and had the potential to cause offence”.
