What do we really know about BBC luvvie Stephen Fry?
At first glance he appears to be no more than a pompous, arrogant, smug, prat, who loves to lecture all and sundry about grammar and gayness.
Look a little deeper though and an altogether more disturbing picture emerges of someone up to his neck in filth of the highest order.
Does Stephen Fry have anything to tell officers investigating Britain’s VIP child-abuse ring?
According to Pink News, Fry was sexually assaulted as a child.
” TV personality Stephen Fry has revealed that he was sexually assaulted by another pupil while at school.
Appearing on the new More 4 programme Shrink Rap, Fry said that an encounter with a sixth former during his first year of boarding school led to the assault.
According to sources close to the programme, Fry denies that the event had lasting consequences for his mental health.”
The Mail reported that Fry recently gave a lewd and lurid speech, which sickened his audience:
” Stephen Fry was announced as President of the Hay Literary Festival at a dinner in the City of London this week.
The comic treated guests to a graphic story about Gore Vidal’s stay at a top London hotel where he rang a gay escort agency to arrange a boy for an energetic afternoon session.
Despite being attended by usually liberal-minded literary types, Fry’s lurid details of the sex act with the young man and what he would or would not perform was too much for some guests. ‘Fry’s speech was deeply distasteful,’ blusters my corduroy-clad mole.”
Fry once wrote a play about paedophilia in schools:
” Plans to stage a comedy penned by actor Stephen Fry about paedophilia in a public school were condemned today.
The award-winning play, which details a homosexual affair between a teacher and his 13-year-old pupil, is to be staged at Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe.
But Latin! Or Tobacco and Boys, billed as “a play in two unnatural acts”, has come under fire from a children’s charity and city councillors.
A theatre company is about to sign a contract to stage the comedy as part of the Fringe programme.
Cambridge-based Activated Image said the play celebrated “the love of a man for a 13-year-old boy”.
But the leisure and culture spokesman for Edinburgh’s Conservative Party, James Gilchrist, attacked it as “gratuitous smut”.
He said: “Stephen Fry’s contribution to the world of theatre could be written on the back of a postage stamp.
“What kind of person thinks that paedophilia is funny? Hopefully theatre-goers will have the good sense to give this a wide berth.”
Lorraine Gray, of charity Children 1st, said: “We work with young victims of abuse who have been scarred for life by their experiences.
“So we would be very concerned about any play that legitimises or trivialises the exploitation of young people by those in a position of trust.”
The play, set in a remote old-fashioned boys’ school, depicts a relationship between effete Latin teacher Dominic Clark and his star pupil.
Described as a “weird, wonderful and just a little twisted comedy”, the play, which Fry wrote as a Cambridge undergraduate in 1979, contains scenes of sadomasochism.”
In 2013, the Independent reported on a BBC investigation into claims that Fry trivialised paedophilia:
” The BBC Trust has rejected a complaint that Stephen Fry “trivialised” child abuse during an episode of QI in which he recited a limerick about a chaplain’s desire for a choir boy.
