This sentence appeared in a Daily Mail article just two weeks ago:

"One report claimed there were ‘over 150 complaints of gross indecency against Clement Freud’, but ‘each one was an individual, so they were unable to take it any further’.

Various police forces had opportunities to prosecute Sir Jimmy Savile for his sexual crimes against children, but forces right at the top of the British establishment intervened to terminate police inquiries.

"Each complaint against Clement Freud was an individual, so they were unable to take it any further" sounds like a very weak argument indeed for a police force deciding to do nothing about Freud.

The Liberal Party doesn't come out too well out of this, either. Sir Clement Freud and Sir Cyril Smith sharing the same office for years...I wonder what they talked about over morning coffee?

Nor does the Queen and those who advise her over who to make a 'Knight of the Realm':

Sir Cyril Smith...

Sir Jimmy Savile...

Sir Clement Freud...

Sir Philip Green...

...it doesn't look good

It's not just a weak argument, it's a ridiculous argument.

The Freuds were well connected to the establishment.

It didn't say who the 'friend' of the McCann's parents is (perhaps it says in this thread) but this does increase the possibilities of the

It's also a very strange thing for a 'friend' of the Mccann's to pop up and start speaking publicly about this, don't you think.... ?

If this is true, Lady Freud knew back in the 50’s.
 
‘Sylvia said she left the family home after telling Freud’s nanny that he had assaulted her and was later accused by Jill of inventing the claims. She said: “I was left totally and utterly destroyed.”

Sorry, can't give a link but in today's Daily Mail, front page, it refers to Lady Freud having an affair with writer Will Self's brother Jonathon. He was 16 and she was 47.

The post on Facebook I've just seen says" Kate and Gerry are appalled" nothing about a "friend" saying they're appalled, you see how the papers twist each fact!

From today's Correio da Manha:

O conhecido locutor e político britânico Sir Clement Freud foi acusado de abusar sexualmente de duas raparigas durante décadas. Freud morreu em 2009, mas só agora os casos, já antigos, se tornaram conhecidos. 

A informação está a ser veiculada pelo jornal The Telegraph, que garante que o antigo deputado britânico "abusou durante anos de uma menina que criou como sua filha", também tendo "violado de forma violenta uma rapariga" nos anos 70, quando já era uma figura proeminente da política do Reino Unido. 

Google translation:

McCann couple's friend exposed as pedophile

Sir Clement Freud, who died in 2009, abused two girls.
The well-known speaker and British politician Sir Clement Freud was accused of sexually abusing two young girls for decades. Freud died in 2009, but only now the case, already old, became known.

The information is to be published by The Telegraph, which ensures that the former British MP 'abused for years of a girl who raised him as his daughter, "also having" violated violently a girl "in the 70s, when he was a prominent figure in UK politics.



Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the paper says, have been alerted to this fact, as Freud had a property in Praia da Luz, where the girl disappeared in 2007, and became a friend of British couple in the months They are following the disappearance.


The paper said that the friendship was maintained by regular contact by email and phone and Freud even received Gerry and Kate McCann in their Portuguese home twice.

However, the political family has already ensured that Freud was not in Portugal when Madeleine disappeared, which could not reach to prevent an investigation under Operation Grange, maintained by the Metropolitan Police in Madeleine's disappearance.

The McCann couple is "appalled" by the discovery that Freud was a pedophile. Through a spokesman, the British say they did not know of children from abuse and Clement do not know if the case will be entered in Operation Grange.

The British police did not respond to questions about this case, but new information about Freud can return to reopen roads in search of answers. "If this was something the researchers did not know, then it is a potential line of research that deserves to be addressed. It is not something that we should look lightly," assures Colin Sutton, a former detective quoted by the British newspaper.

Sir Clement Freud, grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, was born in Germany but became a naturalized British kingdom who consecrated with the title "Sir" in 1987. It was much appreciated by the British public and was announcer on Radio 4 1967 until his death in 2009.

The news that was involved in two cases of sexual abuse of minors was a shock to the country, which saw one of his victims unmask him on television. The wife of Freud has also reacted, lamenting her husband's abuse, with whom he had five children.

"This is a day of great sadness for me. I was married to Clement for 58 years and loved it very much. I'm shocked, saddened and deeply regret what happened to these women. I sincerely hope that they now can have some peace" he said.

Snipped from Tony Bennett Yesterday at 11:42 pm



 



“His response to our catalogue of horrors was merely to raise an eyebrow. Clement had this way of making everything seem a little less terrible. When he heard about the [sniffer] dogs [which had indicated the scent of death in the McCann’s hire car], he remarked laconically, ‘So what are they going to do? Put them on the stand? One bark for yes, two for no?’



 



I find the above quote rather explosive.

I agree.
So Clement Freud's raising of an eyebrow could make the 'abduction' of her daughter less terrible!!
Next time something horrible happens in my life, I must ask those around me to raise an eyebrow!

So Kate, Gerry and Clement had a good scoff at the blood and cadaver dog alerts in the locations where poor Maddie was last seen alive. What an interesting group the three of them make!

Didn't Gerry once claim that PdL was crawling with paedophiles back in 2007? Maybe the only factually correct thing to come from the mouth of the guy.

I've not read the Freud stories in great detail.

Are talking about adolescent minors or pre-pubescents?

If Tony's correct about the 150 allegations, then it could take time to profile this. Plus as other cases have shown there are likely to be more to come out of the woodwork.

It's already been on the OP of this thread for the past 9 hours.

A Moderator added an updated version of the article overnight, which includes the latest news about Clement Freud.

@sallypelt wrote:Sigmund Freud. I'll say no more.

But I will. Slightly off topic, admittedly, but Sigmund Freud was responsible for a major cover-up of child sexual abuse in the 1890s.



QUOTE

“A Freud’s patients began to unburden themselves as to the origin of their hysteria, Freud noticed a pattern of charges of incest by women who had been raped or attempted to be raped by their fathers or stepfathers. What emerged was what Freud called his ‘seduction theory’, that is, that all neuroses are the result of a brother’s, a servant’s or a father’s sexual abuse of the patients as a child…

“In 1896, Freud presented his findings in a paper entitled ‘The Etiology of Hysteria’ op the Viennese Society for Psychiatry and Neurology. Freud publicly committed himself to the ‘seduction theory’ before a sophisticated professional audience…

“Freud’s revelations received an icy reception from the Viennese medical community...Freud felt personally ostracised…It took only one year from his rejection by his colleagues for Freud to recant the position he had announced a year earlier with such confidence. He completely abandoned the seduction theory…

“Freud rapidly reinterpreted and recanted his theory to interpret the reports from the women patients as a ‘fictitious trauma’...they had not been molested at all but were revealing unconsciously that they wanted their father or uncle to have sex with them. They had simply repressed these unacceptable desires and were reporting fantasies based on wish fulfilment. The victims became the villains, and the fathers and stepfathers were absolved of all guilt. Reports of childhood sexual abuse were now dismissed as merely the memories of sexual fantasies of childhood…he assumed that young children have incestuous sexual desires…”

And so Freud promoted his notorious Oedipus complex instead.

As recently as 1981, his descendant Anna Freud wrote: “Keeping up his ‘seduction theory’ would mean him abandoning his Oedipus complex”.

Freud was quite mad and would certainly have been struck off for some of his medical conduct. Possibly the most notorious and laughable episodes during his ill-fated medical practice was the case of Emma Eckstein.

She went to see Freud. She was a radical feminist (rare in those times) who told Fraud she had an ‘autoerotic problem’ and was currently suffering from ‘bloody secretions from the nose’. Freud consulted his colleague Wilhelm  Fliess, an ear, nose and throat specialist with a crank obsession with numerology...he thought that by numerology he could predict the date of a person’s death. In short, like Freud, Fliess was a quack. Freud later admitted to a homosexual ‘crush’ on Fliess, with whom he collaborate for many years.

Fliess’s diagnosis of Eckstein has to rank as one of the all-time worst cases of medical misdiagnosis and malpractice. Fliess advised that the cure would be to remove the turbinate bone in her nose. On top of an absurd diagnosis, Fliess then left a long strip of gauze packin up her nose, within the incision, and Eckstein developed a serious post-op infection and nearly died. Both doctors were lucky not to be sued for medical malpractice.

Freud later told Eckstein that her post-op infection was ‘a psychosomatic  reaction’ and therefore her fault. He diagnosed ‘hysteria motivated by an unconscious longing to bleed. The bleeding was an unconscious desire for Freud’  attention caused by her own unfiled sxual dsires.

He wrote to one friend “She positively liked to bleed, so the symptoms allowed her to demonstrate her various ailments to be real...this gave her claim to the affections of others.

Anna Freud omitted the above incident and also omitted Freud’s craven abandonment of his ‘earlier ‘seduction theory’ in her biography of her grandfather.

Freud was a lifelong smoker, inhaling 20 cigars a day, and not surprisingly developed cancer of the jaw at the age of 67. For his last 16 years he had to endure surgical scraping, iodine and X-ray treatments. Finally part of his jaw crumbled and was removed and he had to wear a prosthesis. In order to smoke, he was forced to use a clothespin to hold the cigar in what was left  of his mouth.

His life ended in a doctor-assisted suicide when he asked his doctor for a lethal injection of morphine on 23 September 1939.

"Child sexual abuse is part of the English genetic make-up"

[REST SNIPPED]
Dear oh dear.

That's not going to go down too well with our Portuguese friends. Let's hope Sir Clement didn't abuse any Portuguese girls.

I am reminded of these words from Metodo 3 detective Julian Peribanez's recent book, referring to a meeting between the British police and Metodo 3 staff, in which Marita Fernandez caused consternation with her remarks:

QUOTE FROM PERIBANEZ
  
On 13th December 2011, officers from the Policía Nacional (Spanish National Police) and Scotland Yard arrived at Método 3’s premises in order to remove documentation related to the Madeleine McCann case. I will pause for a moment here to describe the star performance in the office by Marita Fernández when she found out that the Scotland Yard officers had arrived.
As she cannot speak English, she participated in the conversation via the interpreter who had accompanied the officers, to whom she blurted out the following words only, “How are you getting on with those child sexual abuse cases of yours? How are you combating it? Because that is something which, obviously, forms an innate part of your English genetic makeup and which you carry with you …”
