dunnitall, I think its a polite way of saying that there maybe doubt about the veracity of his accusers........
dunnitall, even somebody making an allegation is "evidence". The question is whether it's sufficient to support a charge, and it clearly wasn't.

Scroll down to theEl Huse VIP Party List... And draw your own conclusions.
Elm House..... Sorry, problems with iPad ....
smurfchops
ok his names on a list,is that proof he molested a youth ? no thought not, and how accurate is this list,you got proof of its authenticity
That Elm Guest House thing has long been discredited, but up it pops with predictable regularity
I never believed the allegations made against him. I'm glad he doesn't have that hanging over him any more.
After Rolf Harris nothing would surprise me.
They're not charging him because there's insufficient evidence, that's not to say he's innocent or guilty is it?
In this country he is innocent until proven guilty.
jno, //dunnitall, even somebody making an allegation is "evidence". //

Not if it's a lie.

I'm very pleased to hear this - and I don't think the BBC is alone in owing him an apology. He's been treated absolutely shamefully.
yes, it's evidence, naomi. If you give evidence in court, and it's untrue, it's still evidence. Evidence isn't the same as proof, it's just an element that can be presented, investigated, debated and accepted or rejected. In this case it looks as if it was insufficient to base a case on - but even that doesn't mean it was necessarily untrue.

Why it took the police so long to sort it out, I don't know. Perhaps it was because the allegations did look reliable and needed thorough investigation; but there may be other reasons.
jno, play with words all you like. Lies are not evidence of guilt. This has been nothing but a spiteful witch hunt.
lies are not evidence of guilt....but a lie can still be presented as evidence.
Some people here remind me of my late Mother, no-one was ever innocent, they "got away with it", I would never have allowed her onto my jury!
Poptastic.
zebo, I get the impression that people, with knives at the ready, are positively disappointed when they are denied their moment.
Poor Cliff. I hope he can now move it....gedit?
