Guilt of Harris will outweigh everything else

ALTHOUGH I abhor the activities of Rolf Harris, it is with a certain sadness that I realise that a great career over many decades has been virtually wiped from the pages of theatrical history as a result of the guilty verdicts at his trial. In future Harris will be remembered for his sexual activities and not for his ability to entertain.

Over the years Harris has entertained us on television, in theatres and with Jake The Peg, Two Little Boys and Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport. His ability to paint a picture before your very eyes was an act of great talent.

In the weeks and months to come, will he regret those moments of madness that have taken him from the top of the bill to the bottom of the trough?

Fame is fleeting – never quicker than when found guilty in a court of law.
