Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter’s ‘untouchable’ BBC paedo gang

by | 3rd, October 2012

KARIN Ward says Jimmy Savile attacked her when she was 14. She has told ITV News the same story that she told Newsnight . The BBC’s Newsnight dropped the story.

Karin Ward tells ITV:

“At the BBC, I told Newsnight that I saw Gary Glitter have sex with a girl in Jimmy Savile’s dressing room…in that little alcove bit. I didn’t see it completely but that’s what was going on and nobody batted an eye-lid. I also told them that I was horribly, horribly humiliated.”

No-one would want to be be in that gang.

She adds that another TV star tried to feel her tip:

“I didn’t like him because he smelled like my step-father and it frightened me and freaked me out. I rebuffed him and he humiliated me in front of everyone in the dressing room by saying something really unkind about my lack of breasts, which to a 14 year old girl was just awful. I…urgh…I was appalled and really, really upset. I’m pretty sure that’s all I told Newsnight because that’s really all there was to tell except that we used to go out to parties afterwards and met some wonderful celebrities.”

In other Savile news, it’s interesting to hear Esther Rantzen saying that she had heard the rumours about Savile, her BBC colleague, but thought him untouchable “. If only. Her husband was Desmond Wilcox, the BBC’s head of general features from 1972 to 1980. He was a man in a position of power. Maybe he could have dealt with the untouchable Mr Savile, who presented his Jim’ll Fix It show on the BBC between 1975 and 1994?

Finally, we hark back to this report
