Loyal or ludicrous?

Of Harris, who is under investigation for alleged sex offences, Mrs Cooper stated:


“All these women were teenagers saying: ‘Who will we get?’ It’s governed by money. ‘Oh gosh, let’s get £100,000’… It’s completely anonymous. Sweet Rolf Harris, he’s such a friend. Accusations don’t change my view. I love him. In my day it was called making a pass”.


Mrs Cooper’s loyalty could be considered admirable but would she say the same thing of Stuart Hall, Gary Glitter and Jonathan King?
