Jimmy Savile, formerly Sir Jimmy Savile in life, is all over the news.

The Sun says “Savile abused 63 people at Stoke Mandeville hospital”.

This is fact. There are no inverted commas around any part of it.The Sun then belts out other facts:

Victims aged between five and 75 were patients, staff and visitors

Savile’s older brother was a predatory sex beast

Savile’s hospital victims included cancer patient and burns victim

Whoah! Is the brother alive to defend hismelf?

Johnny Savile – a minor celebrity and part-time DJ – preyed on at least seven victims at a mental home in chilling echoes of offences carried out by his evil sibling. Evidence that Johnny, who died in 1988, was also a rapist emerged as health officials finally published their dossier of horrors.

Phew! Both dead. No need for a trial, evidence challenged, barriers to convictions negotiated or the accused to point the finger at others still living. It’s just done.

The Sun tells us that Jimmy Savile “abused 63 people at Stoke Mandeville hospital”.

But there is a better bit. The Sun says  “staff knew of ten allegations against the notorious paedophile, a bombshell report revealed today.”

We then get a list of Savile’s crimes, one of which is against a dead child:

He was allowed unfettered access to the NHS where he raped and sexually assaulted patients in 41 hospitals during a 24 year reign of terror His victims aged between five and 75 included patients, staff and visitors. Among Savile’s victims at the Buckinghamshire hospital were an 11-year-old cancer patient, a wheelchair-bound teen and a burns victim.

He is also feared to have abused the corpse of a four-year-old child in a pram.

The report reveals a witness watched him taking the child’s body into the hospital mortuary in the 1970s and a nurse left him alone.

Witnesses? Well, the report says:

 “A pram had to be used as the child was too big for the trolley usually used for children and too small for the one normally used for adults. The night nursing officer made the arrangement and Savile collected the body on his own.”

So. We know he raped the corpse how? Do we just hope he did?

Hattie Llewelin-Davies, charis of Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust, said today: “I would like to take this opportunity to say sorry to all the victims.”

Aren’t they alleged victims? Well, not quite. Evidence says the accusers were victims of negligence. Those in power swept the problem under the carpet, which allowed it to grow and go on, as is alleged, for so long. The Guardian says the absue went back to 1972.

Jimmy Savile was given free rein to sexually abuse 60 people, including seriously ill eight-year-olds, over two decades at Stoke Mandeville hospital due to his gold-plated status as a celebrity fundraiser, an inquiry has found.

The late BBC DJ was the subject of at least 10 complaints going back to 1972, but none were taken seriously or raised with senior managers, according to the NHS investigation.

The victims included a girl aged eight or nine raped 10 times by Savile when she visited the hospital where her relatives worked.

The report by Dr Androulla Johnstone and Christine Dent for the NHS Health and Social Care Advisory Service describes Savile as “an opportunistic predator who could also on occasions show a high degree of premeditation when planning attacks on his victims”.

The Sun goes on:

The investigation includes a key report into his activities where Savile – the most prolific sex offender in British history – had his own bedroom.

Was he? It’s a fact? Savile is the worst sex criminal in British history. And we do not need a court of law to tell us that because he is dead.

Nine informal complaints were made about Savile but none “were either taken seriously or escalated to senior management”.

Informal complaints to whom? what were they? Add them to other complaints made to police about the jibbering horroshow and a case file swells. But why were they not escalated? Why were the police not called?

Liz Dux, of Slater and Gordon law firm, is demanding that senior hospital staff who knew of the abuse but failed to stop it be held accountable.

Yes. They should be allowed to go
