Goodbye Jimmy

Did no one in Scarborough warn the council that Jimmy Savile had been fooling the world for 50+ years, before they memorialised him in September 2012 ?

 Oh yes, guys and gals, the boys at Scarborough Council  erected and dismantled this tribute in the space of a few weeks. There was even plans for a statue 
 The above is the front page of Scarborough's main newspaper dated November 4th 2011. Those plans were still in place until the stupid, ignorant, 60,000,000 of us were told that we'd been had, a year later !
 Some folk wanted the tributes to remain, after all, they were erected as a tribute to the good work the man had done, their voices were ignored !

BUT, and here's my question, why would no-one in Scarborough council NOT be aware of the claims being made about Sir Jimmy in September 2012 when that sign was installed ? They do have access to the internet, the people of Scarborough don't live in a parallel universe to the rest of us ! So why would they spend all that money and go to so much trouble, if they had any suspicion of what was to come ?
Obviously they didn't and here's a few other folk who didn't either !
 And then there was the funeral ! It started in Leeds where thousands lined the streets to say goodbye. St Anne's cathedral was full but you could still stand just feet away from the entrance and watch the service on a big screen
Even BBC Look North were broadcasting 'live' from Leeds on the evening his coffin arrived at the Queens Hotel 
The 'Princess Diana treatment' ? And all the time, a BBC producer was conspiring to 'expose' the man ?
Maybe Jones et al thought no one would believe them or their accusers ? Maybe Jones just wasn't public spirited enough to tell Leeds and Scarborough not to waste valuable resources on a 'monster'. Who knows ? But one thing NONE of these character's can do is change the FACT that thousands of people turned out for Jimmy just as they did for Cilla last week. Now let me ask you, wouldn't you think that if even a fraction of these accusers stories had any merit at all, those stories would not have spread like wildfire around these two northern towns ?
After Jimmy's big day in Leeds, he was driven to his final resting place where again hundreds lined the route to say goodbye 

There's full press coverage of this and someone's even uploaded footage of the cortege's journey through the town

The Press were even at there to watch him being laid to rest

Yet, no one but no-one 'knew' one minute something everyone knew the next ! Ask yourselves and anyone else who'll listen, how can this be ? Maybe you'll get the same answer as I got from an 82 year old lady on a bus in Liverpool. It's all about the money ! Well, goodness, gracious me, and ...

The Liverpool girl

Anyone who has a heart will know that a working class gal made good was buried in her hometown this week, and I had the honor to attend albeit behind a barrier, on a street, with hundreds of others just like me. Here are a few of my snaps 
The closest most of us got to Cilla on Thursday was this. I cannot believe I actually waited at that spot for about 90 minutes. But the weather was lovely, the atmosphere was great and my fellow onlookers were a nice bunch so the time just flew.
That night I headed for the Cavern Club which doesn't appear to have changed much in 50 years. 

Next time, the Leeds boy who touched our hearts and whose send off was even bigger than Cilla's !

Friday, Morning all !

The folk who investigate complaints about the Police have just confirmed something we could have told them ££££ ago. That Jimmy's 'Friday Morning Club' was nothing more sinister than a few old men having a cuppa and avoiding that solitary chocolate biscuit in the fridge.
Here's how it started according to the telegraph, a paper that used to be a tad high-brow

 Just two days after the Savile 'reports' had been published. Goodness Gracious all completed within THREE months.
Yewtree, Ornament and Levitt QC all produced 'reports' of 'investigations' of investigations that obviously NOBODY bothered to investigate. 
Here's a post I did in Novemeber of that year by way of background to this nonsense. It's called 'An Inspector calls'

I remember how pissed I was with the telegraph especially when it suggested Savile bullied the two female Police officers who questioned him in 2009
But if you can't be bothered to read that then try this ! When the 'transcripts' of that interview were published they revealed another FACT. The FACT that Levitt QC also MISREPORTED Jimmy's Police interview too !

Nasty isn't it guys and gals ? These people are given £££ just to cut n paste each other's so-called 'reports' Remember all the while these factually incorrect 'reports are being peddled as truth, Liz Dux and her crew are fighting in the High Court to get Savile's money and the 'victim' count increases daily 
So, I was happy to read that the IPCC have finally decided that Jimmy's friend and ex Police Inspector has been cleared, for want of a better word. 
When will the same be said for Jimmy ? Who knows, but let's be glad for the living for now guys and gals 

Onwards !

Operation Bergerac Ep 2

Previously I covered BBC Panorama episode aired in March 2008 and presented by Sanchia Berg. Berg later presented a documentary produced by Meirion Jones entitled 'After Savile, no more secrets' and it was in this that Liz Dux maintained that Jimmy Savile had raped a child in Stoke Mandeville hospital. Yes, this one

Now, hold on a minute, in fact hold on a few years, because that is exactly what SOME people have appeared to have done since the subject of Savile and Jersey was first mentioned. We KNOW that the sun tried it on with Jimmy in 2008 but no one appears to have made any allegations against the man until 2012. 
BUT, that's not what certain people including Collins who now works with Dux, would have you believe. Oh no, Savile was named as an abuser allegedly, in the 2008 inquiry, according to this woman that is.

Yes, that's Carrie Modral sandwiched in between Bill big mouth Maloney and some other campaigner, and YES that does say 2010. And yes, the same Carrie M who claims to have told the 2008 inquiry naming Savile as a perpetrator of abuse. I kid you not, for Modral's claims form part of an article about an iceberg that Jimmy was merely the 'tip' of !

What ? someone told the Police and nothing happened ? Did this someone not watch Panorama ? Did they not see the sun article etc etc ? Even Collins wasn't aware of any claims against Savile, or if he was, he wasn't telling anyone. And, it's not as if folk were not taking claims of historic abuse very very seriously. It's not as of these campaigner's going to be silenced by anyone

Back to the money and one must never take one's eyes of it for a second, and the revelation that the claimants as they stood in early 2008, might not see a penny
 A 'loophole' in Jersey but not in the UK according to the Mail
Now, would you be surprised to know that, in the case of HDLG, the claimants were still fighting to be paid in August 2011 ?
Collins was representing 36 claimants and he was getting sick of waiting. Yet still, no mention of any high roller's or ex-Prime Minister's in any of the press stories at least ! 
Which brings me back to Carrie M and those alleged claims made in 2008. You see, I wanted to know more about an alleged 'bribe' said to have been made by Jimmy to the Jersey authorities to shut them up ! Imagine my surprise when I found her on twitter 
No one answered Matt's question, well they couldn't really could they ? The Jersey beans weren't confirming or denying this either. That would be covered in the latest inquiry born of the latest HDLG guest list they say. Another bunch of politicians cop out
Ms Modral seems to be someone who is informed, all things Savile related not so much by alleged 'victims' but by press  reports. 2010 ? she must be on about this, the rally against child abuse held in London
But let's head back to 2007 or when ever it was that one decent social worker decided to blow the whistle on the treatment meted out to some of these poor kids in HDLG. 
But no one outside Jersey seemed to give a damn until bones were unearthed at the Bergerac location. And, it wasn't just Sanchia's crew who got involved in the matter. Oh no, the NSPCC were on standy to help 'victims' too !

You see, the world's press was not interested in the mistreatment of kids in Jersey. They only descended on the Island once someone mentioned bones and torture chambers etc. I know this because Sanchia Berg wrote this in November 2008

No proof of any murders were found and that particular inquiry ended in 2010, only to be re-opened when NEW evidence surfaced. And this time it involved famous folk and 'VIP's and ... well you know the rest ! The lawyer's now had more than a "straw man" they had access to a much bigger pot of money .... ours ! He must have been delighted when you consider what he wrote back in 2008

It's called 'vicarious liability' guys and gals and where there's money there's muck and once enough folk start slinging, you never know where it will land !
