I'm not one to start rumours but according to that bloke who did the Savile expose...Mark Williams Thomas....someone has been interviewed in connection with the Saville case.

Its a bit of a shock who it is...can you tell who it is yet?

Could be garbage but he is adamant its true and has claimed as much on twitter.

It's perhaps best not to jump to conclusions just yet. It would be a shock if there is anything in it.

Quick everyone jump onto the bandwagon bus.

Personally i have taken a decision to stop reading the twitter rumours on the sex abuse and let the Police do their job and myself find out someone is accused when Police announce an arrest.

Mainly because on this issue anyone with a grudge/the nutter stalker type and a handful of like minded friends could start a roumour on twitter that gets picked up and spreads, killing the reputation of the person targeted for a short while,

I wouldn't have mentioned it if it was just some random person throwing accusations around. But the guy is a bit more than that and has stated 'he wouldn't have said it if it was not true'

All this doesn't mean anything and is no indication of any wrong doing at this stage. But if true.....

The person is only being "questioned" apparently, and is not directly linked to the same stuff Saville and Garry Glitter have been accused of, but a seperate off-shoot investigation.

In the current climate, considering all the Lord McAlpine business, I'd say this is a very dangerous thread

According to the guy concerned, it is linked to the Saville case. And bear in mind, no names have been mentioned (apart from the actual guy who said it) so its just a bit of rumour mongering at this point.

I said not directly linked - massive difference.

Yeah. To be honest, I wish I hadn't bothered now. I was pretty shocked though.

Released without charge, but his name's been plastered all over Twitter anyway. In some cases, by the same people who have been comparing Leveson to Kim Jong-Il, when commenting on his review of morally/legally questionable media practice.

It absolutely is.

Please do not start any more threads of this nature on TRL.

Thanks.
