Cliff supports Daniel Janner QC and Paul Gambaccini in forming FAIR (falsely accused individuals for reform) which has launched a Parliamentary Petition, campaigning to change the law to provide for anonymity for suspects in relation to sexual allegations unless and until that person is charged, except in truly exceptional circumstances. FAIR is attempting to raise the 100,000 signatures for the issue to be considered for a debate in the Houses of Parliament.  The proposed reform is fair and just. If you wish to help FAIR rebalance a system that has gone astray please sign the Petition 

Cliff’s Support Act for his 2 Tour dates in Denmark will be The Olsen Brothers. The Support Act for the 3 Tour dates in the UK will be The Flyboys, with Sophie Ellis-Bextor also performing at Cartmel Racecourse.  Not long now!

Statement from Cliff regarding BBC litigation and recent media reporting Sir Cliff statement

Dr Billy Graham was the most honourable and honest of men. His faith was obvious and I found him inspiring to be with. His rallies were always moving and enlightening and he presented a "hope" to many who didn't know that one existed.
Monarchs, Presidents and Prime Ministers admired him. We have lost someone special and we will greatly miss a unique human being.
God bless you Billy. R.I.P.
Sir Cliff Richard
