"Obviously I don't have any real evidence of this and it's based mainly on word of mouth and supposition, but apparently we don't need to bother with the due process of law any more and someone writing something in a blog is proof enough."


The day we start questioning second hand rumours based on work related gossip is a sad day for justice.

One thing I'm not sure about.

Was Jimmy Savile a full-time employee of the BBC or was he a freelance who hired out "Jimmy Savile Ltd" to the corporation. If he was a freelance, surely no-one can claim compensation from the BBC because they had no employer responsibility.

It would be equivalent to the girls exploited by Gary Glitter trying to claim compensation from whichever record label he was on at the time.

it happened on bbc premises: people and organisations are responsible what goes on in their premises.


the record label analogy only works if it happened in their studios or any other of its properties

I would say a more apt comparison is that if a child was abused at a school by a supply teacher provided an agency, you probably wouldn't go lightly on the school just because they didn't employ them directly.

The flood gates appear to have been well and truely opened. Can't provide a link but here is a piece from AOL's website -

Information on doctors who worked at hospitals where Jimmy Savile had links has been passed to police amid claims they were involved in a network of child abusers connected with the disgraced presenter. At least three doctors were alleged to have abused young people in their care and were identified by victims who came forward in the last two weeks, reported The Guardian.

There were plenty of rumours about Heath's sexuality a few years ago - maybe that's what they're getting at.

Watson has gone on record to deny that the mystery aide referred to in his statement at PMQs was Peter Morrison, former aide to Margaret Thatcher when she was in power.

Police say they have three lines of investigation based on information received.

Saville, Saville & Others, and Just Others.

You get the feeling that a few people may have a ready packed suitcase tin case they need to leg it.
