Son Accident Caused Death of Senior Citizen

In September 1996, Jeremy was driving near his home in Oxfordshire when he crashed with another car. 

He tried to avoid a car crash, but unfortunately, he couldn't. 

He was alone in his car and had no serious damage. He was unharmed during the accident, although his vehicle flipped sideways. 

But there were two people in another car. They were seventy-nine years old man and his wife.

Jeremy also said women themselves are responsible for their sexual harassment.

He claimed that the sexual harassment of popular female celebrities back in the 1970s was because of themselves. 

He said that the women themselves want sexual attention from guys and later blame them for harassment. 

He felt bad for those reputed people who got accused of sexual harassment, even if it was not their fault. 

He also talked about Jimmy Savile, who was accused by a woman, saying that Savile harassed her at one program.

Savile put his hand over her bottom when she was just 15 years old. 

When she denied it, Savile directly said that she was getting what she wanted. 

Jeremy said that keeping hands underneath someone's skirt and touching their thigh may be sexual harassment, but it is not as bad as people think.

Hence he believes that celebrities back in the 70s wanted sexual attention and were responsible for their sexual harassment.
