Putting it away

As the BBC announce an investigation into the activities of Stuart Hall, he transfers his marital home solely into the name of his wife and his son states that his OBE should not be revoked

 

You’d have thought that after Stuart Hall OBE’s barrister said “sorry for what he has done” last week, the convicted paedophile would now be trying to do his best to show some remorse. Sadly Mr Hall is now doing just the opposite.

It has since been revealed that the former broadcaster turned paedophile transferred the £2 million house in Prestbury Road, Wilmslow that he shares with his wife, Hazel, solely into her name on 22nd February 2013.

 

Questioned by The Telegraph as to why he’d done this, Hall’s answer was:

 

“I have got an extreme heart condition and at any moment I’m liable to pop off”.

 

When the newspaper asked if he’d be compensating his 13 victims, one of whom was just 9-years old, he replied: “That’s lawyer talk”. Plainly Mr Hall and his family have been very busy “planning their affairs” and are working to make it as difficult as possible for his victims to secure any form of settlement.

 

Meanwhile, the arrogance of the Hall family was again illustrated two days ago when Daniel Hall, the 50-year old son of the paedophile, told the Daily Express:

 

“My father’s massive work for charity for 50 years, for which he was awarded an OBE, and a lifetime of good work should not be whitewashed in one brushstroke. That would not be fair”.

 

Today, in a further development, the BBC have announced that a “separate investigation will be carried out into broadcaster Stuart Hall’s conduct at the BBC” and that “this will be conducted by someone other than Dame Janet Smith due to a ‘potential conflict of interest’” on her part. They added that the findings will, however, be fed into Smith’s examination of the “culture and practices of the BBC following the Jimmy Savile scandal”.

 

This whole rotten apple cart needs sorting out. If the BBC want to regain any chance of restoring their truly tinged reputation and if the UK Honours and Appointments Secretariat wishes to retain the respect of the public, both will get their houses in order and swiftly deal with this matter.

 

The Hall family, on the other hand, would do best to quietly retreat. Stuart Hall, his wife and his children should not be bleating about an undeserved honour and nor should they be worrying about trying to protect their assets. Instead, they should hold their heads in shame for the disgraceful conduct of this once trusted presenter and they ought, also, to urgently set about making efforts to recompense those that this monster abused.

    I take great notice of what you say seeing as your comment is so literate and easy to follow.
    Were you high or drunk when you wrote it?

  2. Stuart Hall’s son should be ashamed of himself. If he had any guts he would disown his father. Daniel is a partner in Eversheds solicitors. He strikes me as a corporate individual. His profile suggests a degree of arrogance. Two unattractive qualities. I console myself that his support for his filthy paedophile father will damage his career. He should make sure that his father’s assets are used to compensate victims. Most of what his father owned anyway was a lot of old tatt. Replica grandfather clocks etc. Apparently his father owns a clock owned by Napoleon. That should get a bob or two for the victims!
