How many more cases like this will there be before the CPS realise that these evil nobodies, quite clearly on the make and hopping onto the bandwagon, are taking them for a ride? And has anyone ever thought of how much this is costing the British tax-payer?
My own case cost an estimated £88,000, and it was very low-key. It did not involve anything sexual, but it did involve lies across the spectrum, which is why I applied to the CPS for this to be taken further--not an easy thing to do, but I have succeeded. Indeed, some action has already been taken, which will hopefully spiral. Just imagine how much these nonsensical high-profile cases are costing.
For the sake of William Roache, for the sake of the actor friend of a friend, for the sake of Max Clifford to whose office I owe an immense debt of gratitude, for Nigel Evans, for the two footballers who are friends of friends, and for dozens of others who have complained of being victims--when in effect those they have wrongly accused are the victims--we need to fight and ensure that the names of our oppressors and the details of what transpired in court are legally made public, furthermore that they should be made to pay for the misery they have inflicted. Those questioned, tried and cleared cannot be tried again by British law, but those who wrongly accused them can be brought to justice.
And we are winning. These people need to be exposed. It's no good listening to the pleas of some of them that they have no money, or that if they are prosecuted and end up in jail for perjury, that their children may be taken into care, that their homes may be repossessed. That's their problem, not ours. If this happens, it will learn them to think before wrongly accusing innocent people and attempting to ruin their lives and careers, just because they themselves were born losers and most likely will go to their graves likewise.
MP Nigel Evans cleared of sexual assaultsBy AFP | AFP – 4 hours ago
A former deputy speaker of Britain's House of Commons was cleared of charges of sexually assaulting six young men and raping another.Nigel Evans, 56, said he had been dragged through "11 months of hell" by the case, and "nothing will ever be the same again".
The openly gay former Conservative lawmaker had been accused of using his "powerful" political influence to take advantage of the men in a trial that laid bare his drinking and clumsy flirting.
But on Thursday a jury at Preston Crown Court in northwest England found Evans not guilty on all counts, including one count of rape, five sexual assaults, one attempted sexual assault and two indecent assaults.
"I've gone through 11 months of hell," he said on the court steps.
During the trial, the jury heard Evans was prone to "drunken over-familiarity".
They heard he could be "flirty" and "over-friendly", making "cack-handed" passes, "almost like a drunken 14-year-old at a disco who could not chat you up with words".
One alleged victim dismissed an incident where Evans put his hand down his trousers as "crazy" and "just Nigel being drunken Nigel".
Evans was arrested in May and resigned as deputy speaker in parliament's lower house when he was charged in September last year, but stayed in the chamber as an independent MP.
He spoke of the "darkest and loneliest times" and said there were "no winners, so no celebrations".

Three of the MP's seven alleged victims did not consider an offence had been committed against them.
One alleged victim, aged 22, had told the court he was raped and sexually assaulted by Evans after a dinner party at the defendant's home in March last year, but the MP said the sex was consensual.
Peter Wright, Evans's lawyer, suggested the complainant had fabricated his evidence because he regretted having sex with a man more than twice his age.
Some MPs suggested the Crown Prosecution Service had questions to answer.
A CPS spokesman said: "The complainants in this case provided clear accounts of the alleged offending.
"That evidence could only be fully explored during a trial and the jury has decided, after hearing all of the evidence, that the prosecution has not proved its case beyond reasonable doubt. We respect this decision."
Prime Minister David Cameron, the Conservative leader, appeared to open the door for the MP of 22 years to rejoin the party fold.
"It is hard to imagine the relief that Nigel must feel after such a traumatic time," he said.
"As for the future, I'm sure it's something he'll be discussing with the chief whip."
It also emerged on Thursday that Evans wrote a letter of apology to Commons Speaker John Bercow following claims he drunkenly tried to enter parliament in a rickshaw in 2011.
The incident was brought up by the prosecution during the trial but the judge said the jury should not hear it because it would have an unfair effect on proceedings.
