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.

Agree that I don't understand the warnings. Surely they should just do it and not give someone the opportunity to do a runner.

Combination of Public Relations Dept needing to justify its existence and rolling news channels constantly seeking comment.

I doubt that there will be much danger of people scarpering despite the announcement. Sex offenders are often calculating and superficially co-operative individuals, who would surely know there is little point in adding to any suspicion against them by legging it. They will also know that if these are allegations from quite some time back the likelihood of them being found guilty of an offence, or offences, is low. For example, it is unlikely that there is forensic evidence still in existence, about an alleged sexual crime from 20 years if it is a new allegation. Most sexual crimes are Not witnessed by third parties either, although there have references in the media outlets to some acts being witnessed, eg at "parties." An experienced criminal will know that they can deny all charges and that the police will have difficulty with evidence, give the time and the impact that the crimes have upon the victims' ability to be a "credible" witness/accuser.

Quite why the police choose to announce they are about to do something is another matter. Perhaps it is about being seen to do something, when there is a maelstrom of coverage and speculation. Anyone who has had involvement in such matters knows they need to be approached thoughtfully and steadily, and hasty action can easily result in failure.

What baffles me is how he got away with it for so long. When he was manager at the Mecca in Leeds

http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?resourceIdentifier=20031028_83919925

he apparently paid off the parents of a girl who alleged he abused her. He was a volunteer hospital porter at LGI, but when he proposed himself to do the same at St James's they turned him down, presumably because there were rumours about his behaviour. There must have been plenty of people over the years who knew how suspect he was but let him get away with it. Indeed in the BBC and NHS's case let him mix unsupervised with children. You have to wonder how many more such people are still in circulation, still carrying out their abominable practises.

The independent stirs the pot.

Savile apparently lured young women to his cottage in Scotland.

Prince Charles allegedly sent Savile a Christmas card with the message "give my love to your ladies in Scotland"

Jimmy Savile has got a lot to answer for ... not least giving Esther Rantzen the chance to shoehorn herself into every TV news bulletin and daily newspaper.

There are, and will be, plenty of limits to the enquiry. Press and other media speculation will run amok until they are tired of it, or some other issue becomes the dog whistle topic.
