But notice the date/s on the above because it's just TWO DAYS later that Ms Cope appears to have experienced a change of heart. Her 32 years with 'SIR Jimmy' have become quite a different story !
She now believes she was 'duped' by Savile
But, Jimmy was always speaking in public. He did so at the drop of a hat. And he didn't exactly shy away from awkward questions did he ? As for the 'quiz shows' didn't he actually present a program with that very name ?
Janet is clearly showing signs of stress here. Remember, she's 70 years old, she's alone and everyone it seems wants a piece of her. Everyone including MWT who must have met her some time well before 21st NOVEMBER 2012 when his Exposure Update was broadcast
For those of you with a nervous disposition, this is my effort at transcription of the few minutes I've watched.
MWT 'Despite decades by his side she never saw Savile do anything improper with anyone. Nor did she hear any rumours'.
JC 'The 30 years I was with him I saw absolutely nothing and had I done so he would have known that I WOULD HAVE CHALLENGED HIM'
MWT goes on to say that she now accepts that he had a 'dark side' and that he was 'controlling, manipulative and vindictive'.
He then tells the viewer that Ms Cope has 'handed over her archives to exposure' in other words, he either retains or spent some time sifting through material that SHOULD HAVE BEEN handed to a neutral party !
The Mirror article contains much of the testimony that Cope will say on camera. BUT one sentence stands out as a possible explanation for her seemingly sudden CHANGE OF HEART ! IT is after all, perfectly reasonable to suppose that by this time, anyone who worked with Savile might be subject to a whole lot worse than an afternoon with an ex cop.
I don't know what to make of Janet Cope do you ? One minute, he's a tyrant who she claims to have been 'frightened to death of'. The next she hadn't seen ANYTHING and if she had she'd have jolly well TOLD HIM, 'cos that's my nature'.
Sorry, Janet but those who change their stories cannot be relied on. That's what I think anyway. I'll say no more for now, and leave you with Ms Cope's last words. To the Daily Mirror on the 17th October 2012 that is !
Addendum added 1st march 2015
Bravo Janet ! Reading Moor Larkin's latest blog post explains a lot. Two brave ladies spoke up this week. Well done gals !
