We all know Prince Charles loves to befriend paedophiles.
His sordid chums include filthy child-rapist Jimmy Savile, perverted guru Sai Baba and vile science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke.
It now transpires that Charles is close pals with yet another child abuser, the retired Bishop of Gloucester, Peter Ball
So close in fact that he even gave refuge to the pervert and provided him with a luxurious home.
According to the Guardian:
” Detectives investigating complaints of sexual abuse in the Church of England have arrested a retired bishop on suspicion of eight sexual offences against eight boys and young men ranging in age from 12 to early 20s.
Officers from the Sussex police serious crime directorate involved in a six-month investigation into historic allegations at the diocese of Chichester arrested the Rt Rev Peter Ball, former bishop of Lewes and later bishop of Gloucester, on Tuesday morning at his home address near Landport, Somerset.
Ball is thought to be the most senior figure in the church to be arrested in connection with a sex abuse investigation. The bishop, now 80, has connections to Prince Charles, whom he has described in the past as “a loyal friend“.
The ‘ People’ reported on Charles and the Bishop in 1998:
Angry Mary Todd said:
“This man ruined my son’s life. He is pure evil, a beast, and he’s hiding behind God.”
Disgraced Peter Ball quit as Bishop of Gloucester after being cautioned by police for indecently assaulting 17-year-old Neil Todd.
Despite being an old friend of Prince Charles, Princess Diana banned him from visiting their Highgrove home after the 1993 sex scandal.
But now the prince has provided the bespectacled cleric with a grace- and-favour mansion on his Duchy of Cornwall estate in Somerset.
Ball, 65, who pays a small rent, confirmed this week:
“He has been wonderfully kind and allowed me to have a Duchy house.
“The prince is a loyal friend. I have immense admiration for him, he has been through horrific times and is a great person.”
Neil left the church after telling how Ball forced him to perform sex acts as they lay naked in bed together.
Other time he had to take ice-cold, early-morning showers while reading the Bible.
Then they stood naked side-by-side reciting psalms in front of a figure of Christ.
Ball escaped with a police caution despite statements from other young men who claimed to have suffered at his hands.
He went to ground and was believed to have moved in with his twin brother Michael, the Bishop of Truro.
But Charles, who attended his enthronement as Bishop, offered him a “substantial” detached house with a garden near Taunton.
Last night Mary, from Nottingham, said:
“This is quite unbelievable. I don’t know what Prince Charles thinks he is doing.
“The man ruined my son’s life and should have been locked away.
“Instead he now lives in luxury on one of the finest estates in the country.
“I don’t feel Ball was ever properly punished – but the fact that the prince has given sanctuary to this pervert is staggering.
“I believe in the Royals and support what they do, but Charles needs to look at the facts before housing someone like that.
“What if it had been one of his kids? This is staggering and unreal.”
There’s something very wrong with Prince Charles.
Something very wrong indeed.
