Hindsight, we know is an amazing thing. I wonder if Meirion Jones et al realised just what he had started when he sent that vulgar email on 31st October 2012. He certainly would NOT have expected anyone else would see it let alone, the whole world.
But, see it we have ! The Pollard Report was published on 19th December 2012.
Bear with me on this one Ladies and Gentlemen because although I appear to be getting ahead of myself chronologically, I have very good reason for re- submitting exhibits 3 and 4 along with a new item, exhibit 12. It is a transcript of Nick Vaughan-Barrat's interview with Nick Pollard circa October 2012.
The day after Pollards Report was published, the Telegraph Newspaper printed this article, homing in one ONE PARTICULAR aspect of the BBC SCANDAL !
The Telegraph DID NOT go on to inform it's reader's what this 'dark side' might be. The Fact that there was one, or should I say, the FACT THAT some people who WORKED with Jimmy thought there was one, was obviously enough for them. After all, their interests lay elsewhere. Mine, does NOT !
Now, ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, allow me to play a little game with you if I may ! There is currently a quiz show on BBC2 called 'Only connect' and this is it's purpose !
I want you to engage with me on a bit of 'lateral thinking' if you will and consider this !
Was it common knowledge that Jimmy Savile was 'very ill' as indicated by these emails dated 29th/30th May 2010 ?
However I digress, my point is, and it is merely a hypothetical one, is, who else could have been aware that Jimmy was near death in May 2010 ? I'll leave you to ponder that thought in your break Ladies and Gentlemen.
However, more importantly, I, and I'm sure you want to know what exactly NVB was on about when he spoke of Jimmy's 'dark side'. Thankfully, Mr Pollard asked him, so, now we KNOW !
One has to fast forward to P23 in order for the two men to GET TO THE POINT !
AT LAST !
But, just to confirm that he DOES not mean anything more serious !
Indeed Mr B, why did the newspaper's never, ever, nail him ?'
I should like to introduce exhibit Lyn Barber's 1990 interview with Sir Jimmy when she ponders the same question. Her answer Ladies and gentlemen of the Jury would be the Defense' submission as to WHY no newspaper EVER printed stories about the man in his life time and that was because they themselves knew that the rumours could NEVER be substantiated ! EVER !
Like Ms Barber, Mr B went along with the sheer force of the msm's one-sided reportage of the Savile case concluding that, the existence of a Police investigation into Savile in 2007 proved conclusively that there was indeed a 'dark side' to the man, just, not the one he'd previously believed !
Moving on, I have another question to put to Meirion Jones and for this purpose I should like to draw your attention to an extract from the 'SCRIPT' dated 29th November 2011 he had drafted for his intended film ! P67 App 12
How on earth had Colleen Nolan come into things ? Had he contacted her or she him ? She was certainly quick out of the doors to add her Savile story to the mix, even BEFORE the expose was aired !
But, Ladies and Gentlemen, I ask you to consider this : Where was Colleen and her story BEFORE October 2012 and HOW did Meirion Jones know what she would say a YEAR LATER ?
Time for a break, after which I'll be submitting the results of some of my LATERAL thinking about Ms NOLAN and others !
