Strewth, that's some faces on the front of Martin Fido's latest 'true crime' book ! From left to right we have; Bernard Madof, Charles Manson, the nutter with the gun in the cinema (I think) and Jeffrey Dahmer.
Who else should Fido include in his updated chronicle of baddies but Jimmy Savile !
I'm not buying this and I'm not going to the trouble of finding out what this guy says about JS. Maybe he will TELL ME what I want to know !
I only came upon this book (published October 2013) after being advised that the Savile story features in the first episode of a new series of 'Crimes that shook Britain' on the CI (crime and investigation channel) !
Here's the outline !
Emm, wonder who those 'family members' will be ? None of the one's who actually had anything significant to do with Jimmy that's for sure. And what 'former colleagues' will be unearthed, alongside this geezer I wonder ?
It's the man with the motorway services story again ! I'd quite forgotten about this ridiculous story !
The article is worth a read if only for the comment by 'Del boy'. "Attaboy !" as Edwina might have said !!
Yes, we've talked about this guy before. Jimmy was good enough to give him a lift to Mansfield from London and this is no doubt another effort to get something for NOTHING !
Happy days ! Thankfully, someone who KNOWS something about the YEWTREE stitch-up is squawking loud and proud ! Somewhere in Moor's blogs I remember remarking how Jim Davidson provided some levity amidst the madness unleashed in the wake of 'Exposure'. He made some joke about WHO might be next not thinking for a moment that it would be HIM !!
Thankfully, after 'the darkest year of ' his life, Jim has done what no-one else has been brave enough to do so far. He's spoken up for Jimmy and spoken out against the injustice that could so easily have destroyed him !
I wonder WHO fixed it so that the story of Jimmy's death published on 29th October 2011 found it's way into second most 'popular' news story after Robin Williams' death on the BBC site yesterday !
Indeed the story appeared to go up/down the BBC charts yesterday although I'm not sure what time it slid or rose to fourth place !
Tony Blackburn adds his tribute to the list of contributors !
I can only think of one (or two) words to describe Tony Blackburn. I never liked him in the 70's when he was on first thing in the morning. Hypocrite would be one of those words !
Thank goodness for a few good men and women out there. I'm about to start reading Jim Davidson's book. I'll share moor about what else he has to say about his awful ordeal next time !

The Martin Fido I tweeted is NOT the author ! I sent my apologies and deleted the tweet. If I find the real one, I will re tweet !
