Tonya Lee ... another 'so called' victim of Rolf Harris .. Give me some money and I'll give ya a really great story!

I am sick to death of reading about people who suddenly come out of the woodwork when they think that a buck can be made from a story that's currently in the public eye.

I speak about Tonya Lee who just happens to have come out - at the right time - and SELL her story to Woman's Day and A Current Affair. Not only that, good 'ol Tonya even engaged a publicity manager to make the most of it.

It's quite possible that this woman - Tonya Lee - met Rolf Harris back in 1986 as she claims, but of course instead of going to police after her alleged assault, she apparently decided to stay silent, but come back to Australia a changed person.

Well, I ask Tonya Lee.. where is your proof that the alleged assault occurred? It was never reported, never spoken about .. and now years later and after a wad of cash is thrown at you, you decide to tell your story. I fail to see any genuineness in it.

My personal belief (and many others too) is that Tonya Lee is motivated by greed and the possibility of receiving some victims of crime payout should the case proceed, and,  in the unlikely event that some form of guilt is found. I would have thought a 'victims' real concern would not be the money at all. I ask the question, why would you go to a victims of crime group first BEFORE even seeing the police and laying a complaint. It's arse about. And in addition, when did Tonya Lee go to the V.O.C. group? Was it 10 years ago? 15 years ago? or did Lee just go to V.O.C when allegations against Rolf Harris became public?

What makes Lee appear to be not genuine is that she decided to SELL her story. You could have quite willingly said "No, I want no money, I just want the truth to be known". Or you could have laid a complaint with police and simply said nothing to any media outlets.

Tonya if you are indeed telling the truth, I think it was a very wrong move to engage an agent and sell your story. That, in addition to going to V.O.C. first makes it look like you're in it for the money, and if that's the case, it makes your own personal case look very feeble and contrived.

In relation to your various obsessive behaviours and eating disorders, how can you totally attribute that to the alleged assault? The disorders and obsessive behaviour may have happened anyway in your life, irrespective of what allegedly happened in your youth.

According to news stories I've read, AND, not wanting to make light of the claims, pretty much you were allegedly touched up a bit by Rolf Harris inappropriately - a bit of a groping in effect. Whilst I'm sure this would be upsetting to a child, it's not the end of the world. Liken the analogy to a dirty old family friend that hugs you a bit longer than they should. Sure it's innapropriate,  you can't blame this alleged event as being the catalyst of everything wrong in your life.

Sometimes people like to be the victim or remain a victim. Why ? Because it gives them an excuse to fall back on when things don't work out in their lives. "I never made it to University because Uncle Freddy pressed up a bit too close one Christmas".

If you are indeed telling the truth Tonya Lee .. I commend you for coming forward. It's only a pity that you didn't come forward when the event happened as now your story holds a lot less weight. It obviously didn't weigh upon you too much over the years else you would have taken action much earlier.

And to all the women who'll take offence to this blog, yes, I know I'm looking at matters very black and white with no shades of grey, but that's exactly what a court will do. Courts don't make decisions based upon a person crying in a witness box, they make decisions based on cold hard fact. A defence lawyer will immediately spring forth with "Why did you go to a Victim Of Crimes group first instead of the police? Were you seeing how much money you could make with a story".

Courts have to consider both sides of a story, especially when so long a time has passed since the alleged event. They even have to consider whether the plaintiff is making up the story to make some money. Yes, they do that!!

Most Adelaide people will remember the young 15 or so year old lad who said he was sexually assaulted in the Eastern suburbs back around a year ago by 3 men in a white van. He went on in a lot of detail during his police conversations, to the extent of mentioning there were pipes on the roof of the van. That youth has now been charged with making a false story to police. Yes, it was all bullshit. Now if a 15 year old can do it, why not someone older?

This is why courts and police don't immediately give creedence to this type of complaint until all the facts have been looked at and it's properly assessed because, like the 15 year old boy, there are things happening behind the scenes that sometimes we don't always understand until the whole matter is considered in context.

Update  30/6/2014

No surprise really... Rolf Harris found guilty of 12 sex offences.

Tonya Lee still giving her interviews and laughing at Rolf Harris for the guilty verdict. Well Tonya, you're still the same character I think you are (and a lot of other people think you are), and you may have helped bring Rolf Harris down, but people will see through your character. I'm not saying that Rolf Harris is innocent, but I'm sure there has been a lot of twisting of the truth by 'victims' to dig the knife in. The Rolf Harris case was never going to be a fair trial. In most cases, the victims are simply believed because of the old thought "Why would she/he make up such an allegation"? Here's a case of a 13 year old girl reporting an abduction and sexual assault, and only after proper questioning by police, she agreed that she was lying.

Update 2/7/2014

Another Australian woman, Nina Becker has got on the bandwagon saying she was abused by Rolf Harris in the 1970's. And of course, it's straight to Seven News to sell her story. Well Nina, you're in the same league as Tonya Lee. What about going to the police and not worrying about selling your story to the news first? Some of these opportunist people really make me sick. You've had years to come good and make your complaint, and only do it now after you "find the strength". You make a claim of historical abuse and it would be impossible for just about anyone to refute it. I say PROVE IT. Where is your PROOF? Oh, it happened 40 years ago? Well tough luck, you should have come out of the woodwork then and made your complaint!

Will the real Julia Gillard and real Tony Abbott stand up against this ? I think not! Mrs Jenny Bell has hit the nail right on the head. Is Australia being sold out by it's politicians and multicultural beliefs?

I received an email with the following letter attached.

I have reproduced it verbatim and only made small formatting changes from copy and pasting from the email.

It begins ........

Food for thought

This is a letter of reprimand from 65 year old lady – supposedly. It admonishes one to ‘pass it on’ in the interest of democratic and accountable government. Even if it is a matter of propaganda, it does have some topical questions and simple truths. Perhaps you’ve seen it before - I think I have - but if not, here it is below.

I reckon this lady has said what we are all thinking. I think it’s time to kick them all out!

A Letter to Ms Gillard and Tony Abbott from a Lady in SA

Wow, what a Letter!! Congratulations, and Thanks, Mrs. Jenny Bell!


Its one of the best letters I have read for a long time, it puts it ALL into perspective.

This is our country and its being destroyed.

Subject: The silent majority

This seems to put into words what I – and I am sure many others of the silent majority – think! It was written by Mrs Jenny Bell of South Australia to Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott:

To Julia Gillard (Prime Minister) & Tony Abbott (Leader of the Opposition) ...

You BOTH Worry me ! ( In fact both of your Political parties worry the hell out of me !!!)

Over the last three years, I find myself becoming more and more fearful of the pair of you, and between you, you are turning this country into a place that I no longer feel at home in, or feel a part of! I watch you in parliament, and no, not just the two of you, but every politician that I see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other, and acting like children !!! (..and if you were my children, I would be ashamed of you all ... What an example to set!)

Although you would like us all to believe that you are putting the needs of this country at the forefront, NEITHER of you are doing that, you seem more interested in "one-up-manship ", in scoring off each other, & denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country & its people !!!

It seems to be all about YOU as individuals, and not about what you can DO for this country !
It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize, as the place I always thought, was the best place in the world to be !!!

But no longer !!!

You are not listening to the people of this country !!!
And here in South Australia , your counterparts are afflicted with the same disease - is it endemic in all politicians ?

I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country, (and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most countries ... REALLY ???) ... And yet the gap is widening between the "haves" and the "have-nots" . I see our homeless on the streets, our hospitals under-funded, and understaffed, our health system is an absolute mess and a disgrace .... And yet I see multi-millions of dollars being sent off shore, in aid to other countries, before attending to this country's needs !

I see the "selling off of the farm", in large amounts, to foreign interests, (In Every State ) including water rights to foreign interests too .... And WHY...?

Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us that water is a finite resource, & supposedly, we must ALL be careful with how we use it, so that we ensure we have it for the future ?

Foreign interests "Fracking" for coal seam gas, and riding rough shod over farmers' rights to their own land, AND USING QUESTIONABLE CHEMICALS. (You don't even KNOW what chemicals they use), and possibly causing damage to the water table in the process !!!
And those foreign interests I believe, do NOT have to pay anything in royalties back to this country, for the first five years of their tenure ... IS THIS CORRECT ???

A Carbon Tax,( which you KNOW is just another tax with a "Starting Point dollar value") which will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon emissions, AT ALL!

A tax, which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone, when other major countries will NOT & DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it !

All that it will do for this country is put working families and small businesses behind the eight ball, .....what planet are you on, if you think that your few hundred dollars a year, will make even a scrap of difference to the effect of the carbon tax on people ?Blind Freddy can see the holes in that argument !!! Do youreally think we are that dumb ???

The CONVOY OF NO CONFIDENCE was real !!! ..and I haven't spoken to even ONE person, who would not have liked to be there if they could, but the tyranny of distance and /or work was the only thing that kept them away, ( myself included ), .. and you KNOW that only a part of the convoy was actually allowed to be in front of Parliament house and ON VIEW ... the rest were streets away, unreported by the media !

For Mr Albanese to stand up in parliament, and call it "THE CONVOY OF NO CONSEQUENCE ", in his sneering tone, shows just how out of touch with the people of Australia , you really are !!!! WE WOULD HAVE ALL LIKED TO BE THERE !!!

DEFENCE ........ Because Americans are our Allies, and we support them in Wars, ......... Korea , Vietnam , Iraq , Afghanistan , ..... and you have sent our soldiers to those places, and our soldiers fought for you, and for Australia ........ some coming home with terrible physical injuries, and some with devastating Mental Injuries as well ..... BUT WHERE ARE YOU, WHEN THEY NEED YOU ?????

Veteran's Indexation to CPI only is a disgrace ... and is something YOUR Labor party Julia, used as an election sweetener, to get the Veteran's Vote ..... BUT YOU LIED (Again) ! You never had any intention of honouring your election promise to them ... and it WILL come back to bite you at the next election !!!! (And Tony, Liberals were NO BETTER, Howard had more than 10 years to "fix it " and didn't !)

Veterans are not alone, they have families, friends and supporters, who are heartily sick of the deception your party perpetrated on them .....AND THEY ALL VOTE !!!!

THEY are your obligation, first and foremost ..... and it is not your first obligation to give aid to every man and his dog overseas first !!! Look after your own FIRST !!!! Is this what you call SALUTING THEIR SERVICE ???

Have you any idea , how sickening it is for our Vets to see you both, ( Labor or Liberal ) turn up to the funerals of our current young vets for a photo opportunity, to be seen to be "caring " in the public eye, but only to turn your backs on them all, when they need you ??? (Just ask Breanna Till an Afghanistan Soldier's wife, how CARING this government is !!!)

And in light of what you DON'T do for our Vets .......Let's talk about Multiculturalism ......People have come here from other countries, for a better life, for more years than I have been alive ( I am 65 years old !) ... my own family migrated here in 1883, from Germany , and did find a better life .....

Pre & Post war immigrants have came for a better life, and settled in and became wonderful contributors to this country, as did those who came here after the Vietnam War, ... all have contributed to the rich diversity of this country, and some descendants have even fought FOR this country, and they have become Australians and were glad to be ..and they had NO handouts from our Government either, ...they worked hard for everything!

I have never before had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants coming here ...

.......However , I DO NOW !!!

Please tell me why we have areas like Lakemba, where police do NOT, & will NOT go, for fear of their life ?
Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools, for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ? (The latest little gem is that they are not having, or being funded, for "chaplains " any more , but "Counsellors "?)
Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone ?
Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND someone ?
Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres, for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ?
Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in this country ... when if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed ?
Please tell me why our laws need to be changed, so as not to OFFEND someone ?
Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own country, because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ?
Please tell me WHY Australians cannot legally wear a face covering bike helmet into a bank ..and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the whole face ?
And please tell me WHY, when those people who want asylum here, can wreck our detention centres, as in Villawood , and STILL be accepted here ?

SO , in light of the above, WILL BOTH OF YOU ......Please tell me WHY, when some of our Vietnam Veterans FINALLY received (in the last 6 months) the recognition that they should have had after the Vietnam War, (and which they received from the USA & South Vietnam, during and immediately after the Vietnam War), that the families of those Veterans, were refused assistance by this Government, to attend that award ceremony, and yet this Government ....flew , accommodated ,and even took on bus tours , to the the families of asylum seekers, after the funerals of those who were killed in the boat which sunk off Christmas Island ?

What does that say, about just who are this government's priorities ?

The Australian people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming a second class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it, are some of the above, ..... Are you so blind that you cannot see this ?

And no , I am NOT racist !!!..(if I did not like Catholics or Protestants would I be considered racist ?) Of course not !

Why is it, that if we object to what is happening in our country .... we are immediately labelled RACIST, in an attempt to shut us up ?

We are fighting Radical Muslims, in Afghanistan & Iraq , are we not ?I hear you say, yes but the Muslims we have here are "Not like that " .. well how would we know ? we hear ANY of them coming out & speaking AGAINST radicals ?? I haven't ...have you ???

Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Australia ! .....Are not the experiences of Britain , France , and the Netherlands an example of that? Why do you think it would be any different here ? We even have an Australian born "radical ", whose message is that Australia WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia Law, & that we had "better get used to it ".

Will both of you grow some "Balls ", and start sticking up for this country and its people ???

We are the people who put you where you are, and PAY you to look after our interests ! ... And you are NOT doing that, by any stretch of the imagination !!!

I would appreciate an answer, from both of you, if only to convince me that once again, I am not talking to a brick wall !!!!!

In case it has escaped both of you .....I would like to remind you that, in Australia the Government ... is FOR THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE, & BY THE PEOPLE ...
never forget that......because you sure have up till now !!!

Mrs Jenny Bell
