  1. 1. Should Jimmy Savile's knighthood be removed?

  2. 2. should we have a public inquiry into all not just savile



Recommended Posts

Well now it seems like Starr has been busted! After denying most strenuously that he had ever met the girl who accused him of attempting to indecently abuse her in Saville's dressing room at the BBC, after insisting that he had only met Saville twice and after insisting that he had never been to the BBC, footage has been unearthed which proves he lied on all three accounts. It shows Starr appearing on Saville's show Clunk Click on BBC TV and standing right next to him is the girl he denied ever meeting. Nuff said methinks. <_<

Suggesting that all should be left covered up and nothing done? :unsure:

No harm done, eh? Except to the young girls assaulted and/or raped (and even young boys it now transpires). What do they matter? :unsure:

What I don’t understand cleo is why are they coming forward now after all these years!!

who stopped them coming forward in the first place and why !!!

that’s who we should b looking for and asking why.

 

now think about!! with what the press as done in the passed years this would have been rite up their street on reporting this to the people no matter who they where, so why did this not happen? who in the BBC`s old boys net work stopped this.

 

no one can now tell me there was not a network going on within the BBC this goes to the top in business and old boys net work

 

Saville had the goods on some one or group high up and could have fetched the old boys net work too its knees let hope it all comes out in the open but some how I do not think so

 

lates news

Police are looking at 120 lines of inquiry and possibly as many as 25 victims relating to the Jimmy Savile sex abuse claims, they said today

 

Scotland Yard has formally recorded eight criminal allegations against the star, including two of rape and six of indecent assault.

 

"These are primarily against girls in their mid-teens, so between 13 and 16 and it spans four decades of abuse. the first dated back to about 1959 but most seemed to be in the 70s and 80s.

 

 

NOTES MYSELF I've taken a look at the BBC Child Protection Policy available on the BBC website, and I have to say I think it needs a good deal of work before it could be used as the basis for a claim that this couldn't happen today.

 

I think this sum it up for me as one man as put it

 

"How can the BBC draw a line under this? The BBC used Licence Fee payers money to give this man a pedo wagon, subsidise rape rooms at Television Centre and cover up for this monster for over 40 yrs. What a sinister a secretive organisation the BBC is.

And the BBC has yet to apologise to the Licence Fee payers on what it did with their money."

Ben Shepherd reporter for The Guardian

Says in a press story the following part

 

 

I caught a glimpse of this bizarre relationship in 1970-71. As a researcher on Radio 1's Speakeasy, I soon learned that the show's presenter,Savile, functioned in London out of a Winnebago parked between Broadcasting House reception and All Soul's, Langham Place, into which a stream of very young women flowed. This went on in a semi-public way, under the eyes of BBC management. What's more, Speakeasy, a discussion show aimed at a young audience, was a co-production between light entertainment and religious broadcasting. How could the head of religious broadcasting, Rev John Lang (who later became Dean of Lichfield and died this year), have allowed such behaviour to go on? My recollection is that they were awed by Savile's status and the access to youth culture he provided; grateful for the chance he offered to break out of the ghetto of religious broadcasting

 

 

What’s I say why did you not report this then ? So the church is involved why am I not surprised

how I do not think so

 

As Paul Gambucini said, "You didn't mess with Jimmy Savile..."

Apparantly he had some power in the BBC. What that power was I couldn't say but people were afraid of him. and Gambucini stated he overheard Savile saying that if anything happened it would stop the donations to his charities and Stoke Mandeville's funds would dry up when the donations were stopped.

They came forward after his death because they were too afraid of Savile to come forward prior to his death.

The girls would have been afraid and probably too embarrassed to tell what had happend and possibly thought no-one would believe them anyway, as in the case with the girl who did tell and caused the police investigation in 2007 which resulted in no action being taken because of lack of evidence.

As for the employees of the BBC who were aware of what was happening but did nothing about it... just one word... COWARDS!

This one's getting better every day, now they're going to remove his grave stone. :roll:

I believe his family is having the headstone removed tomorrow, in respect for the girls that had been raped and abused.

 

I honestly would not be surprised to hear that his body is removed and cremated.

The family statement says it is being removed as they are "deeply aware of the impact that the stone remaining there could have on the dignity and sanctity of the cemetery. Out of respect to public opinion, to those who are buried there, and to those who tend their graves and visit there, we have decided to remove it."

 

It's already been vandalised apparently and that's no suprise if what has been said is true. If they decide to remove and cremate his body they'll have to dig through a heck of a lot of concrete first which is allgeidely protecting his 'gold' coffin.

With the price of gold as high as it is these latter years I would say it's more likely to be gold plated or painted rather than real gold. He couldn't possibly have been rich enough to afford a solid gold coffin and I doubt they could have bought enough unwanted or broken rings and jewellery to melt down to make a full size coffin. Maybe made from fool's gold. So wouldn't be worth the effort of digging it up anyway.

Jimmy Saville is today lying in an unmarked grave after his family removed his headstone and sent it to be broken up and disposed of in a landfill.

 

The £4,000 tombstone, which bears the star's image and lists his accomplishments, including the epitaph “It was good while it lasted”, was removed at around midnight last night after Savile's family requested it be taken away out of “respect to public opinion”

 

also Yesterday, Commander Peter Spindler, Scotland Yard's head of specialist crime investigations, said the abuse appeared to have been on a ”national scale“.

 

He told the BBC: ”At this stage it is quite clear from what women are telling us that Savile was a predatory sex offender.“

 

Scotland Yard has formally recorded eight criminal allegations against the former Top Of The Pops presenter so far in its investigation, named Operation Yewtree.

Chairman of the BBC Trust Lord Patten has given his backing to inquiries by police and the corporation, saying allegations against Savile could not be excused as behaviour from a time when ”attitudes were different“. ( I say when was it ok BBC you have a lot to answerer too )

 

 

A free flat at Stoke Mandeville Hospital used by Sir Jimmy Savile has become part of a fast-expanding police sex-abuse inquiry into allegations the former presenter was behind up to 25 attacks over four decades

 

 

also did you know savile

He was also questioned in 2007 about child-abuse allegations at a children's home in Surrey in the 1970s and linked with an abuse scandal in Jersey.

NOTES....... WHY ARE WE HEARING THIS NOW WHERE WAS THE PRESS THEN AND THE BBC AND THE POLICE ?

Should the BBC be closed down for condoning his behaviour throughout his career?

Eagle forgive my naivety, but just how do you intend to close down the BBC? :shock:

I do wish the media would stop publishing pictures of Savile, especially the ones wearing just underpants. Truly makes me feel a need to vomit everytime I see them.

Starr is still protesting his innocence, blaming forgetfullness for having at first denying ever meeting the girl who accused him and for saying he has never been at the BBC. He is even playing the sympathy card, saying the stress is giving him heart palpatations and he might die as a result of a heart attack. :unsure::huh:

Take away their license to broadcast and scrap the License Fee.

Not sure about the first point but I personally would certainly go along with the second one that you made. I don't think its the BBC that's the problem its the bunch of 'old farts' that have been (so called) running it for years, they need to clear the lot out and start again.
