    And do you think that nose was always attached to the face, or was it a joke part from elsewhere on his body?

    He's done well so far. He's been interviewed on more than one occasion and this hasn't made the newspapers, raising questions about a media blackout.

    But its the double standards which bother me the most. When Saville was implicated ITV news couldn't wait to point score against the BBC and lead with it. But when Fred Talbot (of Richard and Judy outside weathermap dancing fame and lead weatherman on Granada News) was wanted for historical abuse allegations and subsequently went abroad, ITV went quiet. Same with the two Corrie actors (Frank Foster and Kevin Webster), nothing more than brief mentions.

    What will they do with Rolf? With ITV lead with "BBC Animal Hospital presenter Rolf Harris"? Will BBC counter with "ITV presenter from Rolfs Cartoon Time"?

    There are 3 threads to Op Yewtree
    1. Actions by Saville
    2. Allegations against Saville and others
    3. Allegations against others unconnected with Saville.

    So potentially he could have been nicked for either of the last 2. Arresting him would give them time to interview him and make sure he doesn't disappear by putting him on bail.

    It seems that if you were famous in the 1970s then you are fair game. I wonder if any of this will come back to bite the Met on the backside!

    I think he has been pulled in because he was around at the time, as @X-13 says
    I know, I know - its all a bit depressing though.

    Given what you read in rock star memoirs (Led Zep et al) - you'd think they'd have collared a few of them too (G. Glitter not withstanding)...

    Sad situation as many of these people are national heroes. However, if they are guilty of sexual offences fair cop but I do wonder about all this - which national icon of that era will be besmirched next Benny Hill hasn't been in the news recently and he was responsible for the Fastest a milkman in the west?
