Just noticed that there was no thread running here, after reading of the distress Jimmy Savile threads was having on Posters.

I have a real problem with what Max Clifford is saying - these 'young pop stars' who had a choice in how they behaved making out they were helpless in the face of all that was on 'offer'. The whole 'not asking for anyone's birth cert' crap is just a fucking awful excuse.

Maybe we should tell him that ignorance isn't a defence in law.

bananaistheanswer Sat 27-Oct-12 13:41:59

And another thing, anyone who genuinely did nothing wrong would have no reason to go to the likes of Clifford. That fact that they are all heading his way says they knew at the time whatever they did was wrong but didn't care then as they had no worries about any comeback on their activities or behaviour. Taking advantage of your position with young, often naive teenagers, is not the sort of behaviour that's mandatory when you suddenly become famous. The fact that its encouraged and lauded in the press or whatever still doesn't remove the choice to be a kind decent human being instead of one who takes what they want with no regard to the consequences.

It says it all really. Employ the most slick pr man you can when the shit finally hits the fan, so you get the most favourable outcome in the press, rather than actually face up to the choices you made when you had power over others.

MC likes to tell he encouraged JK to go to the police, he is not so keen to tell us his client SC put up JK bail money.

It is getting more complex by the day. BBC need to get a full report out and see what we think of it. It seems Savile got all powerful and thought he was untouchable. But press, police and BBC had some evidence years ago. Savile faced them all down. They could have bugged his caravan.

I see GG was arrested this morning.

MrsjREwing Sun 28-Oct-12 14:24:52

Not sure what it is all about the press drawing their gaze on Jim Davidson now?

I feel quite grossed out at all the women in their thirties running after a 16/17 yo Harry Styles.

This issue continues to get murkier by the day sad

I have been reading far too many posts on DI forum. Ranges from very interesting to wildly odd!

I was surprised when I heard that gg had been arrested even though I knew it was likely! I'm wondering who will be next.

Mrs JR where did you see that?

Could never stand JD. Ugh.

MrsjREwing Sun 28-Oct-12 18:31:08

Have you seen the DI forum 6th Earl link?

Wrt to JD it wouldn't surprise me if the sad fucker is just desperate for some attention, he's probably been round all the newspapers begging asking if they want to talk to him about JS

NigellasGhost Sun 28-Oct-12 19:35:16

quite frankly I'm surprised JD has spoken out like this. Must be even more thick than I thought.

6th earl link - not sure what that is - will have a look!

MrsjREwing Mon 29-Oct-12 00:21:36

I think the oddest JS interview in the past few weeks has to be from his long term lover g/f who cheated on him.

MrsjREwing Tue 30-Oct-12 09:09:55

Just had a look at DM and some deluded fool from St James's palace recons JS won't have tried anything in THERE! Whilst trying to distance POW from his mate Jimmy the most prevelant sex beast known.

ThreadWatcher Tue 30-Oct-12 09:46:11

MrsJR - I agree there is some very interesting stuff to read on DI about Saville family history, Mountbatten, knatchbull connections.
Also interesting stuff about B George and a friend of saviles called George.....
Not sure which pages though - owing mostly to their cut and paste other people's post facility their threads are so much longer and disjointed!
They were up to p438 last I looked!

MrsjREwing Tue 30-Oct-12 09:50:43

I can't keep up with the DI forum, really they linked JS to MB? just WOW!

ThreadWatcher Tue 30-Oct-12 15:07:25

Not JS as such - other savilles are connected (can't remover how) to the names I mentioned.
DI forum is speedy quick moving!
And I feel I need a notebook to truly keep up as people say so many things worthy of investigation then it moves on to something else - but then I think argggh it's getting bad if I'm taking notes from the di forum!
Step away from the thread............ grin

Savilles friend called George should definitely be researched further. And the sutcliffe connection

Darkesteyes Tue 30-Oct-12 17:53:04

Just seen on Twitter that Mark Williams Thomas has had contact with the Duncroft headmistress. Shes said that the police havent contacted her regarding JS.
What with this and the PR in full swing to distance POW from JS i have a nasty feeling the BBC are gonna carry the can for this and the rest of it is going to be swept under the carpet or at the very least they are going to try to.

MrsjREwing Tue 30-Oct-12 18:05:50

This is going to run and run. I am so disapointed the only arrest has been GG.
