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 ...
