I'm sorry, I would not be interacting online with a female (or male) child outside of my family, I'm aged 48. It would be extraordinarily inappropriate and shameful, even if it was deemed legal. And I do not have a huge public profile, nor do I spend my life preaching to millions of other people about how they should behave. Someone who polishes their halo in public should have higher standards than I do, whether that relates to formal law, or not.
Again, interacting is such a vague phrase. People in the public eye often do mentoring. It's overwhelmingly a very good thing. If you actually have any substance to what those interactions were, or proof of the 16th birthday thing (I mean, you do have form for believing random sh!t off the internet) then I might be encouraged to join in. But so far all I'm hearing from you is baseless rumour and prejudice and that's the kind of stuff that I just love to burst.

PorkieYou only know up to now what Schofield has declared, while at the same time finally admitted to concealing the truth.I’m not saying Schofield is the same as his brother, what I am saying is there’s justification to find out.My query that I’ve made on here is if, as we now know he did know about his brother, did he report him for what a court sentenced him to 12 years for?If he didn’t, why didn’t he?He’s also paying for this guy’s solicitor fees who are clearly advising him.Until he speaks we will only have conjecture, but even knowing what we now know it’s getting more and more uncomfortable.
See, I'd agree with the first bit of that. (second bit seems to just be wandering into rumour mill territory though). If the focus is on what he knew about his brother then I think that's a legitimate question.
I just find these "revelations" to be a distraction from that. ITV acting all shocked and forcing him out for that instead. Smells like bull to me. Do him for him covering up for his brother if he did, but doing him for a consensual relationship with another adult? Eh? Either get evidence that he groomed him and sack him after that or you sack everyone who has an adult relationship.
