Good riddance to the paedophile, another one dead along with Jimmy Saville.
He was convicted for having sex with an underage when he was 23 back in the sexual revolution days of 1966
The jails would have been overflowing if the laws were applied equally

He probably sold the story of his own death to the tabloids he fed for decades. The British media are hateful scumbags who depend on vermin like Clifford to supply them with *****. They all swim in the same sewer and elements of the Irish media are not far behind them.

Poor Max fell foul of the British establishment and was effectively killed by them

Indeed, MOST of the British Establishment have the same 'moral' standards as Clifford, HE did THEIR bidding for decades yet they STILL fed him to the lions. In the wider picture it IS sad and a bit pitiful they way he ended his days.

He was no paragon of virtue for sure
But I thought the days of sending the establishments enemies to the dungeons had ended after Anne Boleyn was beheaded

I know it's left field but possible lessons for Ireland in the Brexit talks if they let Britain piss them about.

THe Guardian is reporting that Clifford died due to cardiac arrest.

A very controversial figure, and arguably a very polarising figure.

Clifford operated in a time when "public relations" in the media involved breaking controversial stories.

Clifford died while serving a prison sentence for indecent assault.

A bit sad really. He came across as decent enough although maybe a bit arrogant and made too many enemies through some of his PR 'celeb' work. Can't recall what exactly the historical abuse claims were but it wasn't Saville or even Weinstein level. Heard the judge slapped long sentence on him after he was oddly mocking the sky news reporter who was reporting outside the court where his trial was happening. If that is true then it seems very harsh.

Tabloid papers are scum irrespective of ideology. No rag ever darkens my house.

A lot of footballers and some other famous people will be glad you have gone.
You mean the type of people who would sell pictures of their own children and their weddings to the highest bidder and then indignantly demand privacy when caught out cheating on their on their husbands and wives?

Clifford wasn't a great asset to society, but neither were those who sought or were on the receiving end of his services.

Oh ffs get a grip - he didn't do the bidding of the establishment - he hawked seedy gossip for z list models, celebrities and footballers.

Jesus wept.
