The Times invites readers to be the laid of their own Scottish glen. The story goes:
The Highlands offer quality of life, low prices and high happiness ratings. Take a tour of the hills, lochs and moors
You might spot some celebs:
Its lochs and glens have inspired songs, films and poems. The scenery of Skye formed the background to Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse, which continues to win accolades nearly 100 years after its creation. Even the most unlikely of celebrities want to call it home — Bob Dylan purchased Aultmore House in Strathspey in 2007.
You won’t see Jimmy Savile but you might spot his old house Allt Na Reigh in the “bewitching” Highlands:
Let’s zoom in:
Looks like a nice spot. As the Times says:
Recently released surveys confirm what Highlanders already know: that living there is good for the soul.
Which might or might be residing in Hell.
No-one has dug Ted Heath up and buried the former Prime Minister face down in an unmarked grave. Yet. Police in Wiltshire and the NSPCC are inviting anyone who ‘believes’ they may have been absued by the dead Tory Leader in his lifetime to get in touch via a hotline.
The advert trills:
Sir Edward Heath has been named in relation to offences concerning children. He lived in Salisbury for many years and we would like to hear from anyone who has any relevant information that may assist us in our enquiries or anyone who believes they may have been a victim.
Not alleged offences. Simply offences. Ted is “named”. It has been decreed. And it’s hard to escape that part about “belief”. Once upon a time, only victims were allowed to call the official hotlines dealing with historical sex abuse. Now anyone who believes they’ve been a victim can call.
News on the hunt for Madeleine McCann has been thin. But today the Sun has a story:
Ripper’s vile Maddie slur – EXCLUSIVE: Serial killer casts doubt on McCanns in Broadmoor letter
The Sun has news of Peter Sutcliffe, the so-called Yorkshire Ripper.
YORKSHIRE Ripper Peter Sutcliffe sickeningly casts doubt on the innocence of Madeleine McCann’s parents in a sensational letter revealed today by The Sun.
Mass murderer and woman hates thinks… It’s not the most auspicious start to a scoop, is it? Why should we care what the killer thinks?
In the note — one of a series he sent from Broadmoor — he tells a pen pal “there’s something not quite right” about three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance during a 2007 family holiday in Portugal.
Lord Greville Janner: a look at reporting on the beleaguered Labour peer.
Daily Mail: “Labour peer Lord Janner attended the House of Lords 634 times and voted 203 times even after his dementia diagnosis”
Alleged paedophile Lord Janner voted 203 times in the House of Lords even after he granted power of attorney to his children because of his dementia….
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:
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
Type ‘Jimmy Savile Fan Club’ into Google Maps and you find its location: Arsenal’s Emirates stadium.
This sort of thing has previous. A search for ‘Shit Hole’ sends Google map users to Tottenham Hotspurs ground:
But surely that’s where the Golden State Warriors play:
Tim Hick, Crime and Parliamentary Affairs Correspondent for the North Yorkshire Enquirer, has news:
For some time now, despite intimidation and threats from the Police and Scarborough Borough Council, the North Yorks Enquirer has been pursuing the truth. We have consistently alleged that there was a major paedophile-ring operating in Scarborough from 1947 until about 2009 and that it included Jimmy Savile and Peter Jaconelli, the Mayor of Scarborough. We have alleged that his ring was the most successful paedophile ring in British criminal history, was connected to the Westminster paedophile ring, operated far beyond North Yorkshire, had international connections and was involved in trafficking and enticing young people into prostitution. It was successful because Jaconelli was protected by North Yorkshire Police, because he was a Scarborough Borough Councillor, County Councillor, millionaire businessman, Mayor, leading Scarborough Citizen who was a School Governor and ran the local Judo Club.
Jimmy Savile – revered as a Knight of the realm and Papacy in life who became the Devil incarnate in death – is to pay out.
The Times reports:
Around 200 victims of sexual abuse by the television personality Jimmy Savile are in line for compensation after a ruling by appeal judges today.
Can all the victims be proven?
Three judges in the Court of Appeal in London rejected a challenge by a charitable trust which is one of the main beneficiaries of the Savile estate to the £3 million compensation scheme that has been set up. Lawyers representing the Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust had argued that the scheme – agreed between the estate executor, the NatWest bank, and lawyers representing alleged victims – was not able to assess the ‘’validity’’ of claimants and lacked a ‘’process of evaluation’’.
Book of the day is the 1979 tome, God’ll Fix It, the divine words of Sir Jimmy Savile.
The chapter How Do I Cope With Sex? , told readers:
Sex at its worst is corruption, as when young people might be corrupted to provide sex.’
The final word is with the Star:
Chasing the Westminster peadophiles story the Express catches up with Haroon Kasir. The paper says he’s “never spoken about Operation Fernbridge”. Operation Fernbridge is the Metropolitan Police’s look into allegations of a paedophile ring with Westminster links operating at Elm Guest House, Barnes.

DID you see the convicted child abuser on Jim’ll Fix It, the Jimmy Savile BBC show whereon the twice-over knight (papal and regal) made kids’ wishes come true? Of course the biggest wish he saved for later when he dropped dead.
The peado wasn’t just Jimmy. He’s only an alleged one. This other padon was an actual proven nonce. As the Telegraph reports:
A young girl was “set up” to appear on Jim’ll Fix It alongside a convicted child abuser, the BBC has reported.
Was she set up because he was a young girl?
Confidential social services reports confirm that Keith Harding, an antiques expert who appeared on the 1980 Christmas edition of the show, was involved with the notorious campaign group, the Paedophile Information Exchange (Pie), according to the Radio 4’s Today programme. It said that Harding was convicted of indecent assault against four children aged eight and nine in the late 1950s and was a “schedule 1″ offender – meaning his convictions remained on his police file for life.
However he was subsequently given the Freedom of the City of London and became a member of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, as well as running a museum regularly visited by children.
HOW much does one of Sir Jimmy Savile’s victims get? The Sun knows:
OUTRAGED victims of Jimmy Savile have been told to expect payouts of just £7,500.
Surely the victims are more outraged that the BBC and NHS’s pet paedo got away with his alleged crimes?
Those targeted by the sex beast are expected to reject the “pitiful” compensation. It is thought people who were raped by the late DJ may get slightly more.
CAROLE Mideley has few sane words about the paedo panic. Last week a man was banned from Puxton Park park for being an adult male unaccompanied by a child:
We can be bawled out by security for filming our own toddler in a ballpool (legally you can photograph anyone in a public place, but on private property it is at the management’s discretion), yet serial child sex abusers ran rampant in places like Rotherham undisturbed. What seems to matter is being seen to be vigilant, even if it does amount to a hill of beans. Julie Spence, former chief constable of Cambridgeshire, recently said the force spent more on CRB checks than they did on real child protection, ie, tracking actual sex offenders. About 3.9 million such checks were carried out last year. Most will be vital, of course, but 843,000 of those were on volunteers offering to help with school trips, discos or reading. A friend recently volunteered as a helper at her son’s school but was told she hadn’t been “trained”. What they probably meant but were too polite to say was that she hadn’t been vetted for a paedo past. Worth remembering, meanwhile, that a CRB-type check would have picked up nothing amiss with Jimmy Savile.
JIMMY Savile has yet to be dug up and beaten with sticks, his head stuck on a spike. But the man never tried for his alleged crimes remains under investigation. The Times tells readers:
Jimmy Savile may have sexually abused patients at 41 hospitals, the health secretary has revealed. New allegations have been made in relation to 12 NHS trusts, including nine not previously implicated in the scandal.
It’s always useful to turn sensation on its head.
Jimmy Savile may not have sexually abused patients at 41 hospitals, the health secretary has revealed.
What Hunt revealed was nothing at all. He just hinted and suggested that the purge on paedos was making progress.
Savile remains stubbornly dead. The Government is chucking all the ills of the past into his pit. The problem is that if you keep looking at the past, you miss the present. Read the rest of this entry »

THE BBC very much regrest including the face of dead DJ Jimmy Savile during a Top Of The Pops highlights show this September. Sir Jimmy, as he was known at the time of filming (the repugnant man was both a Papal knight and knight of the realm), is not a BBC highlight and must be shown only on the news.
The BBC says:
“Although all programmes are reviewed before broadcast, unfortunately this brief appearance was missed. It was removed from iPlayer as soon as we were made aware and replaced with a re-edited version. We apologise for any distress caused.”
JIMMY Savile is the subejct of Dan Davies’s book Plain Sight: The Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile. The man known in his lifetime as Sir Jimmy has now buried in muck and filth. Savile never was arrested, charged nor tried in his lifetime. He is the alleged paedophile and rapist who operated on the BBC and NHS’s watch.
Rachel Cooke writes:
As I read Davies’s book, the term “light entertainment” suddenly struck me as the greatest joke. What a misnomer. It wasn’t light at all. It was dark and heavy: clodhopping at best, sinister at worst. All the programmes I enjoyed most as a child came with heavy doses of innuendo, low-level violence, sadomasochism. There was Dick Emery, who dressed up as a sexually frustrated spinster – at the time I didn’t know what frottage was, except I sort of did, thanks to her – and as a toothy vicar whose pious exterior made for a sharp contrast with his visits to “naughty” strip clubs. (Davies, I notice, has a picture of this vicar on his Twitter account.) There were the two Ronnies, Barker and Corbett, whose show included peculiar serials such as “The Worm That Turned”, a dystopian fiction starring Diana Dors, in which women ruled the world (mostly in hot pants and jackboots) and men wore women’s clothes and kept house, and “Band of Slaves”, in which an all-girl orchestra was sold into slavery. Rod Hull and his puppet Emu performed a tango of aggression so convincing, you couldn’t help but rub your upper arms as you watched, imagining the bruises on those of their victims. Benny Hill was forbidden in our house – he was on ITV – but I knew the shtick. He chased girls. Round and round and round. (Hill, incidentally, made a shrine of his dead mother’s clothes, just as Savile did with those of his beloved “Duchess”.) Somehow, Ben Elton’s controversial attack on Hill – the comedian’s routine, he suggested, incited rape and other acts of violence against women – doesn’t seem quite so over-the-top now as when he made it in 1987.
IN the summer of 2012, stuff belonging to the late Sir Jimmy Savile was auctioned in Leeds. Monies riased went to Savile’s own charitable trust. £130,000 of which went on Jimmy’s silver Rolls Royce Corniche convertible. Among the 549 put up for sale, Yes It’s Number One created the big top ten, judged on oddness and over-estimate price:
A ‘JIM FIXED IT FOR ME’ aluminium badge – £2,000
The magic chair from the first two series of Jim’ll Fix It – £8,500 (under the 10K estimate)
CAN we feel sorry for Cliff Richard? When the police raided his home in the full glare of the BBC cameras, did you wince? Or did you pat yourself on the back and congratulate the Beeb and the police on their sound work in investigating allegations of historic sex abuse and, most vitally, showing us all how they have moved on and are no longer ignoring victims, employing the depraved and failing to report their crimes?
The worthy South Yorkshire plods must have known Cliff was on his summer holidays.
JIMMY Savile, the dead knight of the realm and the papal church accused of being the world’s worst ever sex attacker, the man who knew Charles and Diana’s greatest secret, who invited us to sing-along to the jingle-jangle son, who blow cigar smoke at children trapped in a lift, was a wizard.
IN 1990, Sir Jimmy Savile talked to Q Magazine of his sexual interst in fresh corpses.
To the HuffPost this is:
Jimmy Savile Interview From 1990 Reveals Disgraced Star’s Apparent Fetish For The Dead
FLASHBAK to September 7 1973:
TV and radio star Jimmy Savile entertains schoolchildren trapped in a broken-down lift in London. The youngsters were being presented by Mr Savile with a £7,500 cheque for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
THE young students at Scargill School in Rainham, east London, are rehearsing for the end-of-year show Lights, Camera, Action!. We join the action as the school caretaker cahracter, a Mr Jim Fixit arrives. He is, as the notes sugegst, “ready for any challenge.”
He produces a letter. He reads:
“Dear Jim, could you please find time to retrieve my sixteen footballs from the roof of the school hall.”
IT’S hard to explain how peculiar TV was in the 1970s. Better to show you kids what the olds had to watch.
On November 16, 1974, Petula Clarke starred in The Sound of Petula. . .The Tale of a Scorpio, Petula sang about people born under the Scorpio star sign.
THIS year would mark the 50th anniversary of Top Of The Pops. The show was, until relatively recently, a cornerstone of British television. A mixture of people’s interest shifting to the internet, and the BBC’s complete failure to stay in touch with youth culture and an over-reliance on the Glastonbury coverage saw TOTP falling by the wayside.
And then there’s the ongoing Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal.
