So, now it’s Bob Dylan facing allegations of historic abuse. In his case, they arrive in the form of a civil lawsuit from a 68-year-old woman, identified only as “JC”, who claims that he “exploited his status as a musician” to “obtain control over her as part of his plan to sexually molest and abuse” the girl who was just 12 years old at the time. This crime, heinous if true, would have been committed in April 1965, over 56 years ago.
The internet can be toxic, as can the language used in mainstream politics. But this is not what killed Sir David Amess.
