Let's refresh ourselves on how the McAlpine story was depicted by the yewtree press on 13th October 2012
'Jimmy was named ... interviewed as a witness' Then he says "I don't know what was in the diaries" This was the standard of reporting we had to endure in the days following the expose. Oh, and the above is an extract from the Davies book footnote 17 (see below).
Davies relies much on screws reports from the time (again see footnotes) BUT cannot, for SOME reason, see what I'm seeing - the FACT that Claire/Samantha's mother SPOKE to the screws about the diary. Surely she MUST have told then the names of the TWO men involved ? They'd been on the payola case for months, surely someone would have mentioned him had he been involved ?
The following extract is interesting I'd really like to see these NOTW (screws) articles
Here's the footnote info
Is Donna Scruff still around ? Why haven't the yewtree press asked her who the DJ is/was ? After the Rosko show ? Could this be the claim covered in Mr Neil's report ?
We're been asked to believe that Savile is one of the two men named in the CM diary. But it doesn't make sense does it ? WHY oh WHY, if this were the case would he be allowed to blow off as much as he did, giving interviews about girls on Top of the Pops ? As Judge Judy always says, "If it doesn't make sense, it isn't true"
Here's something else that doesn't make sense either ! It's another Davies extract
Now, I don't know about you, but I've yet to come across any reference to a 'management board meeting' Let me know if you do. Maybe someone at the Times could explain this ?
The Coroner believed CM's allegations to be 'fantasy' too, did they not ?
To end, in reference to that 1971 photo/s. Here's some more photo's from October that year, plus a few other tidbits.
If it doesn't make sense, it ain't true !
