For any Coro St fans I met Ken Barlow and his conman grandson (real life son) in Wellington today and got some autographs for my Mum - they are here as part of the Coro stage show.

Met him only 2 weeks ago.

It's now known that he faces two charges of raping the same girl. 
While I agree with that, I also think that celebrities are now wide open to allegations of sexual abuse, whether the complaints are true or not.  Some people will do anything in the hope of getting financial reward, i.e. by way of compensation.   Also I would very much like to know just what evidence the police have that can be relied on 46 years after these rapes allegedly took place.  If the girl in question did report them to the police at the time, then the police involved  should be charged with negligence, assuming that they're still alive.
I agree with you Aileen, I knew someone who was accused, and because he wanted to clear his name wouldn't plead guilty was sentenced went to Goal leaving his wife and 5yr old daughter for 6yrs. Those who knew him and who knew the so called victim said  he was innocent. While he was prison the governors and all those who came in contact with said he was not guilty. He lost his profession good name, and years later his innocence was proved. The said family were after money etc.
At the moment we are seeing Rolf Harris and many others being named and I feel this is as you say for compensation. Some may think this is cynical but.......

No, I don't think so, after all, all were adults but the car caught fire a little too fast before they could get out. It was a running car after all. I saw it. CBC was showing it again and again just yesterday - someone who was also going side by side on the road apparently video taped it. The driver first thought, they wanted to smoke but later he realized the car was on fire. So by the time he stopped the car, 5 people including the bride, were already dead. There were 9 women - 5 died, 2 in critical condition and 2 others are okay. The driver is okay too.

The girls should have asked the driver to pull over right away instead of banging on the partition and yelling "smoke! smoke!" the first time. He thought they just wanted to smoke. He probably thought they were pretty drunk too so didn't take them very seriously.
