Karin Ward, the first 70sDuncroftian out of the gate with her 'autobiography' pointing the finger at Jimmy Savile and Others, including comedian Freddie Starr, has been blustering in the media (one of her favorite pastimes, apparently) on the subject of the defamation lawsuit that Freddie has filed against her in the high court in the amount of three hundred thousand pounds, complaining that she has ruined his professional reputation as a result of Ms. Ward's libellous remarks in her book, which sparked this ridiculous celebrity witch-hunt, (and to which I will not provide link one, thank you.)
Incredibly, in this statement to the Mail, Ward does a full spin. From all her prior blather about molestation in 1974, Ms. Ward now proclaims a truth that has always been self-evident to any woman who grew up in that era, i.e. that it was normal to expect some men to attempt to grab your boobs, or pinch your rear-end, but - astonishingly - the reason she was upset with Freddie was because he allegedly called her a "titless wonder," back in 1974, because she rebuffed him.
For future reference, the term "titless wonder" really doesn't have anything to do with the size of someone's bust, but I suppose if you are sensitive about such things, it might rankle.
If I may Karin, you have admitted confusion in your recall at the very least. You went out there on the web, looking for women who had been at Duncroft in the mid-70s who would tell you what had happened because you didn't remember. Did it ever occur to you that the reason you didn't remember was because it just didn't happen, or that you have confused celebrities with real abusers in your life? Just saying. And now look where it's landed you.
Either way, Freddie and his solicitor are going to continue on, I'm pretty sure. Perhaps, in lieu of money you don't have, would a public apology for lying serve, do you think?
I assume that neither Mark WT and/or Meirion Jones, et al. have offered to pay for your legal defense - well, there's a surprise. Probably on their hols in some tropical location.
You and others have created havoc - whether knowingly or because of manipulation by others - now you need to do the right thing. You started it. You can begin to finish it.
