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

What's happening with the nine BBC staff that were suspended? Are they still?

There is a video of Ben fellows talking on YouTube - tricky to link on this gadget but I'll try if someone else doesn't! Worth watching

I second your fears mrsjr - those in power won't want this to fully come out so it may forever be not fully explored - I'm guessing we need to hope people like Tom Watson? keep making a noise about it.

Tips I will look at that link later.

I see from DI forum the Palace are behaving like victims in The Star paper over JS.

DI forum have a bee in their bonnets and are tweeting MNTowers.

Yes that's it tips - start watching at about 42 mins.

Perhaps we should keep this thread from AIBU bumped:

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/1600751--to-think-that-Max-Clifford-is-not-a-suitable-person-to-head

the more people generally aware, the better IMHO

MrsjREwing Wed 31-Oct-12 12:22:01

will take a look.

DM tracked down one of JS's friends, he went to Spain recently and claims ignorance, a bit like St James's pLace in The Star claiming to be victums.

Excellent Channel 4 News report on Savile in Broadmoor.

Mental health nurses and the paedophiles at Broadmoor thought that Savile was a paedophile, but at one stage he was actually running the place.

Click on the Savile in Broadmoor bit in the Now playing section underneath the video.

Anyone following the Anna Raccoon blog recently? Today she's reporting a conversation she had with the head of Duncroft.

Js estate has been frozen I hope the victims can get every penny.

Read a lot of the DI forum last night and although there were parts Im not convinced by a lot of it made sense. I cant help but feel that arrests such as GG and probably a couple of obvious others will happen I feel as though this will still be coverered up a lot. I think they will lull the public into a false sense of security and justice by laying total blame at certain peoples doors. But then thinking about it, would the public really want it all to come out, it would make the majority of people very uncomfortable if the depth of this was proved. All that we believed in would be shattered, who would you trust?

Can anyone else see what I`m saying? (I would love to see it all exposed) Perhaps reading the DI forum was probably not the best thing to do, my heads going to explode.

NigellasGhost Thu 01-Nov-12 12:21:09

I've been reading that forum as well, Dreams
I agree - there will be a few arrests to pay lip service, to keep everyone happy and everything else just hushed up again. So we can all go back to living our happy lives, safe in the knowledge that the nasty people have been dealt with. When in fact, it goes a lot deeper and a lot higher, but how many of us can truly accept that fact? I am NOT into all the shapeshifting lizards & owl worship nonsense but there is other stuff that is perfectly feasible...

They are going for the small fry. I do hope they are lulling everyone else into a sense of false security.

Tipsandshoots Thu 01-Nov-12 20:12:23

The di forum makes you so scared. When you click all the links and follow the paths they make, it makes you shiver at the horror of it all.

Did anyone else notice in the BBC news regarding FS, before showing FS and Karin, a quick clip of Savile and Mountbatten flashed up.

AnyaKnowIt Fri 02-Nov-12 14:01:46

Fs back at police station

MrsjREwing Fri 02-Nov-12 14:08:53

Planned?
