  1. It required royal commissions etc. to find out AFTER the event. Would it not have been more fruitful to inquire BEFORE those people became prominent? It makes you wonder how many sex offenders in prominent positions are still around and collect awards and acolytes.

  2. All the Rock Stars AND a certain Prime Minister ( BH) would be quite worried right now. I new a lady who’s mum was Reg Ansetts secretary and she copped it every tome B– visited.. But it was the norm 40 years ago unfortunately..
    . I remember a boss smacking the office girl on the bum and saying “get us a cuppa sexy”. Said now would see you in court
