I am Jimmy !

On 7th January 2015 a crime was committed that provoked decent people of all creeds etc to take to the streets in Paris and across the world. One image that will stay with me forever will be this 

When the outrage that is Operation Yewtree began in October 2012 no one took to the streets. Of course the two events were vastly different, 12 innocent people had lost their lives. BUT, those of us on the front line of the campaign for Justice For Jimmy Savile and anyone else deemed guilty without due process, the parallel is there.
When fellow blogger Moor Larkin amongst others began challenging the Savile narrative we were shouted down by the anonymous and the not so !


Most of those who wanted to silence us used personal insults. A few threatened to turn up at our event in Leeds two years ago, who knows why. BUT - look, we are still here. We are still out there speaking up for the dead guy and here is where some of us will stay.
It's called FREEDOM OF SPEECH and we are all entitled to our opinions. If someone offends or annoys anyone else online or social media they can, in the case of twitter, block them.
What you should NOT do is resort to violence or incite others to commit violent acts, because then you have LOST whatever moral argument you and your cause might previously have held.
Speaking for myself, I only want the truth. I only want justice for everyone. Say what you like to me on twitter etc etc I won't come to your house or place of work, with a gun and I won't incite others to harm you. 
I am not Jimmy. I have not died and been found guilty of things that, to date, no-one has had to PROVE happened. I am Jimmy because, like him when he was alive, I am entitled to the protection of the laws of our land and I am innocent until someone proves otherwise.
I am also Charlie - I think you know why !

  1. It's not so much that folk have not proved Jimmy was guilty. It's more that in so many cases he can be proved to be NOT guilty.

    It used to be said that even if he wasn't guilty of all of the allegations, it would only take ONE and his reputation would be over. I'm still waiting for the ONE.

    I'm not Jimmy but I know he's been stitched up like a kipper.
