UPDATED August 2, 2016.
The BBC has refused to apologise to Cliff Richard (Harry Webb) for its coverage of the raid by police of his flat in Berkshire. They have, furthermore, rejected his claim for damages.
It isn’t known for certain how much Richard wants from the BBC, but it is thought to be in the region of a million pounds, (1.32 million USD at current rates of exchange), and the BBC apparently believe that it is too much. The Duckshoot doesn’t think he should get a bean. Would you or I get paid compensation for the cops raiding our home?
An investigation sometimes requires a search of property and when that search reveals nothing does it make the decision wrong? As traumatic as it is, especially if you are home, it does not invalidate the invasion.
Harry ‘Kitty’ Webb AKA Cliff Richard was not home, and there are two ways to consider that detail. If he had been at home would it more embarrassing or less? While it must have been frustrating to watch the incursion from his sunny retreat his knowledge that there was nothing there to incriminate him was reassuring surely?
He has had plenty of time to either squirrel away or destroy anything incriminating so he was sitting pretty. His pretended outrage is a beautiful piece of acting on his part, although his alleged bought of shingles does indicate he experienced some worry I think.
Is he in the clear? He is not telling the truth that’s for sure, but whether he ever comes under the spotlight of a jury trial is another matter.
