Jimmy Savile’s new hit, the Kincora Boys home and playing politics with paedos

The Daily Star reports that The Proclaimers, singers of such monster-monster hits as  I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) and Letter from America,  have written a song about Jimmy Savile. This follows news that Jonathan Maitland has written the drama  An Audience with Jimmy Savile. Looks like the depraved old sod is still entertaining the masses from beyond the grave.

The Proclaimers song Then Again  references Top of The Pops , the BBC TV show once fronted by Savile:

“I can’t believe that I couldn’t see how many dodgy men were running TV. 

“While I was growing into a man they took advantage of their fans.

“When I was a boy the were stars of prime time television.

“But circumstances change and some of them ended up in prison.

“Now maybe we were on Top of the Pops.

“Some of the hosts have got the chop.

“I’m sleeping soundly in my bed cos Jimmy Savile’s still dead.”

The Daily Record says the song “also refers to the 70s paedophile ring at Westminster and features on the band’s new album Let’s Hear It For The Dogs.”

Savile never was tried for his alleged crimes. He’s dead. What of those still breathing who enabled, did and knew what was happening?

Get used to hearing a lot more about the Kincora Boys Home in Belfast.



Slugger O’Toole writes:

Richard Kerr, a victim of abuse at Kincora told Channel 4 News that he was taken from the east Belfast home to London where he was molested by members of a VIP paedophile ring. Mr. Kerr alleges that he was abused by “very powerful people” at Elm Guest House and Dolphin Square locations at the centre of the ongoing inquiry which has been mired in controversy.

Last month Home Secretary Theresa May ruled out extending the scope of a child sexual abuse inquiry to cover Northern Ireland and Scotland saying that child protection is “a devolved matter” despite Home recommendations by a Home Affairs Committee report:

The Belfast Telegraph says Kerr’s story is a “revelation”. The Daily Mail says it is a “claim”. The Mail is right. If we want justice, then the allegations must be presented in court and hurdle all the barriers to conviction. That is far from saying Mr Kerr’s allegations should be dismissed. The Mail adds:

The Kincora children’s home in east Belfast was run by William McGrath, the head of an extreme Protestant loyalist group called Tara and an alleged MI5 informant. He and two other members of staff – William Semple and Joseph Mains – were jailed in 1981 for sexually assaulting boys in their care.

Mr Kerr is not alone. Clint Massey says that he t ried to report the abuse to an RUC station in east Belfast in 1973 “but detectives turned him away, warning him never to repeat his claims again.”

Now the police are looking. But are they looking within their own ranks?

In 1980 the Independent reported:




In 2012, the Newsletter wrote:

AMONG the hundreds of files from 1982 released at the Public Record Office in Belfast, there is no file on the Kincora scandal.

In 2010, Irish Central noted:

Ian Paisley, the former Northern Ireland firebrand then First Minister, has reinvented himself once again as a ‘champion’ for victims of child sex abuse…

The founder of the Free Presbyterian Church will join a protest in Scotland against this week’s visit to Britain by Pope Benedict

“This man is coming to this country at a time when his own church is very deeply divided, and rightly so, because of the behaviour of many priests within the church and his evident desire not to enter into this matter and deal with it,” Dr Paisley told the BBC…

What a hypocrite.

I’m sure Paisley is familiar with the bible admonition that “Let him without sin cast the first stone.”
