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.

AnyaKnowIt Sat 27-Oct-12 11:29:32

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.

MrsjREwing Sun 28-Oct-12 09:44:58

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.

ThreadWatcher Sun 28-Oct-12 16:06:09

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.

NigellasGhost Sun 28-Oct-12 17:17:04

Mrs JR where did you see that?

Darkesteyes Sun 28-Oct-12 17:51:14
Darkesteyes Sun 28-Oct-12 17:52:40

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.

Pinot Tue 30-Oct-12 18:06:36


ThreadWatcher Tue 30-Oct-12 21:00:19

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.

Tipsandshoots Wed 31-Oct-12 08:27:40
MrsjREwing Wed 31-Oct-12 09:25:16

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.

ThreadWatcher Wed 31-Oct-12 09:47:27

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

NigellasGhost Wed 31-Oct-12 11:23:22

Perhaps we should keep this thread from AIBU bumped:


the more people generally aware, the better IMHO

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

will take a look.

MrsjREwing Wed 31-Oct-12 13:27:28

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.

AnyaKnowIt Wed 31-Oct-12 21:15:04
Tipsandshoots Wed 31-Oct-12 22:16:03

Anya. That sums it up really god how depressing.

claig Wed 31-Oct-12 22:18:44

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.

ariadneoliver Thu 01-Nov-12 10:31:10

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


AnyaKnowIt Thu 01-Nov-12 11:37:25

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

Senior Political Figure

MrsjREwing Fri 02-Nov-12 14:58:04

I heard that name along with a floral name. That is not the one I was thinking of, I was thinking of a hefty bloke, just my guess.

NigellasGuest Fri 02-Nov-12 15:13:43

what's the betting it doesn't get to air, anyway

NellyJob Fri 02-Nov-12 15:16:00

anyone here been over at the DI forums by any chance?

claig Fri 02-Nov-12 16:19:30

What are they good?

NellyJob Fri 02-Nov-12 17:21:46

yeh take a a look on the particular thread associated with the ex bbc employee which is in 'general news' I think

"And his involvement at Broadmoor was rubber-stamped in 1974 by Dr David Owen, now Lord Owen, who was health minister, government papers in the National Archives disclose."

Savile recorded himself abusing two girls, then gave the tape to the bbc
