What is Rolf Harris going to do next in a dismally transparent attempt to influence the jury to warm to him. Is he going to pull out his didgeridoo (…oi oi, …behave now), … and start blowing into that; offer up some kind of obscure and weird serenade. Let’s face it, it is all rather weird considering the circumstances, no?!
Rolf Harris seems to be enjoying his time in the witness box; enjoying expending anecdotal conflagrations of his rise to stardom to the jury and even enjoying a little medley from his back catalogue (ergh, wait, …it was only the one song and it’s shite) singing part of his quasi-famous and dismally (non)comedic song Jake the Peg whilst compounding this surreal punishment–in the meanest sense possible–by imitating his even more infamous wobble board all whilst giving evidence for the first time in his indecent assault trial.
Charged with 12 counts of indecent assault against four girls and young women between 1968 and 1986, and deciding to sketch and doodle away in the witness box is slightly jarring and the 84-year-olds behaviour seems rather queer.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
