Jimmy Savile’s sex-free sex den at High Royds Hospital

Fancy a peek inside ‘Jimmy Savile’s sex den’? This is where the ‘shamed star preyed on victims’. The Daily Star’s wrong, of course. Savile wasn’t shamed. Sir Jimmy was buried with full honours. The great and good lined up to praise the “colourful character”, the embodiment of “diligence and decency” who will be “greatly missed“. Savile was not shamed. He was dug up, possibly beaten with sticks and buried a good deal deeper down than the normal six feet, but the Papal knight died a State- approved hero.

Savile’s ‘sex den’ is the abandoned High Royds Hospital in Menston, West Yorkshire. Savile was a depraved, gibbering loon who hid in plain sight. He didn’t need a sex den. He had a caravan, a BBC studio pass and an NHS-issued gown.

Reading on we learn that the sex den featured no actual sex. The Star reports:

It was here sexual predator Savile targeted a number of women during the get-together in 1988. The party was to celebrate the centenary of the hospital, according to a 2014 report.

More of an office party than a sex den, then?

An investigation found that the monster had cupped women’s boobs and put his hand up one victim’s skirt during the event.

All nasty, pervy, leery, criminal and sad. But not what anyone would call a sex den, least of all the Star, whose Television X stablemate broadcasts hardcore pornography with such titles as Sexual Predator 1. 

As for Savile, well, the Star continues: ‘But the women didn’t make a formal complaint because sexual assault was considered an “occupational hazard”, the report said.’

Maybe that should be investigated – why nurses were seen as fair game?

Over in the Mirror, the sex den is gone. We are in the former hospital ‘where Jimmy Savile groped nurses and asked for a room in case he “pulled”‘. We see photographs by Kieran Young, 20, who posts as Exploring Lancashire.

“I had been here a few times previous but never found a way in,” he says. “I’ve always love the look of Victorian buildings so this really took my eye so I kept going back to get in. After five or six attempts I finally got in with a friend. My pictures encapsulate the past while also showing the morbid reality of the present.”

They’re good. We like looking over disused building, which given their massive size and emptiness often look haunting and sinister. Was Savile the worst thing to have occurred at West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum, later Menston Mental Hospital and finally High Royds Psychiatric Hospital, where up to the 1960s inmates were buried in unmarked graves? Who listened to the poor and vulnerable back then? Who listens to them now?

A staff member is quoted talking about Savile in 2014: “He was just very free with his hands, so hands going round people, round their waist but then upwards, cupping under breasts, hands up the skirt. We just laughed it off, said ‘Dirty old man’ and didn’t go near him for the rest of the day. I can’t imagine that if we had said anything to anybody, or the police, that anybody would take it seriously, I don’t think, at that time. It was just an occupational hazard of being a woman.”

It sounds like Savile wasn’t the only man free with his hands. But he’s the focus of the Mail’s report, even if the paper does spell his name wrong.

 

jimmy savile nurse

 

The Mail issues an invitation: ‘Look inside an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a truly dark past: Jimmy Saville [sic] once prowled these corridors to launch sickening attacks on nurses.’

He more walked and jogged than prowled. That was the thing with Jimmy Savile – he was there for all to see, often dressed in a shining gold tracksuit and neon hair. He was hard to miss. But no-one was listening.

Barry Bennell: Manchester City implicated and Jimmy Savile exhumed in football’s peado scandal

The peado-hunt has reached football. Following the grim news that young players were molested by coaches, the Mail leads its sports coverage with a story that Manchester City are in a “sex abuse probe”. Is the entire club is in some way linked to paedophilia? Surely not. It makes you hanker for those wholesome days of randy footballers, glamour models, spit roasts at the Grosvenor hotel and super-injunctions. Seedy stuff it was was, but always between consenting adults.

The Mail’s story is overblown. City are looking at the club’s links with convicted paedophile Barry Bennell, who “coached junior teams connected to City”. The club is doing the sensible thing and looking into if Bennell ever represented City. We don’t know if he did, let alone if he abused any youngsters on City’s books.

The Mail seems to be linking a Premier League club with a lower-league scandal – Bennell was employed by Crewe Alexandra.

Over in the Mirror, which has twice this week led with the story on its front page, page 9 features a remarkable headline: “Rooney tells footy sex victims: Don’t suffer in silence.” That’s Manchester United and England’s Wayne Rooney. He wants anyone who has suffered to contact the new NSPCC hotline. ‘NSPCC chief Peter Wanless hoped Rooney would “give courage to those who may be afraid of coming forward’,” says the paper. How? Rooney was not molested. How does Rooney’s endorsement help middle-aged men confront their past? It all carries a faint whiff of PR, a chance for leading figures to be on the side of the right against a wrong anyone sane should know is criminal and revolting. Creating a sense of moral purpose from the pursuit of child-abusers is crass. But that’s how the peado-panic has been manifest for years. Child abuse stopped being about the victims and listening to someone regardless of age and social rank with respect when they make an allegation and into the nation’s defining characteristic.

 

Barry Bennell

 

And so the Sun. Over two page it invites readers to work out an answer to the headline poser: “Is beast Bennell the Jimmy Savile of football world?” The helpful bit about getting to any answer is that Bennell is alive and we know where he is: (Milton Keynes, says the Mirror; he’s in “hiding”, says the Sun). That makes him only half like Savile, who is decomposing, having died a blameless national treasure. The unhelpful bit is that the Sun’s story contains not a single fact linking Bennell to Savile. Other than in the headline, the Sun’s story on a convicted paedophile contains only one mention of the gibbering Yorkshire DJ – “the scandal now described as “potentially worse than Savile“.’

It’s lamentable that something as abhorrent as child abuse should be sensationalised. When being against child abuse is your media’s campaign, the bar has been set lower than Savile’s upturned toes.

Worse than Jimmy Savile: looking for the next big thing in paedo scandals

Paedo-hunting has been a national obsession. One good thing about it is that with so many of the people accused dead, police, MPs and media need offer no right of reply, proof and cough up for damages when the thing goes tits up. One downside is that people who actually knew some of the shameless dead are upset. The widow of the late Lord Leon Brittan is one of that number. Having seen her husband labelled “as close to evil as any human being could get” in Parliament (Tom Watson MP apologised, albeit after the innocent man had died), it did not escape Lady Brittan’s notice that the Met Police failed to tell Leon he had no case to answer before he died of cancer in January last year.

“I think, particularly for him, he should have known that he was innocent of the charges before he died, but that didn’t happen,” she tells the BBC. “…I think he kept it very much to himself because his major objective during those last few months was to get better, get well, do everything that he could to get well. I went to see him one afternoon and he said: ‘I’ve just been just been rung by the police.’ I said: ‘What’s it about?’ He said: ‘I’m not terribly sure, but I’ve just said to them I’ll ring my lawyers.’ And then the lawyers rang me, and then they said to me this is an old rape allegation, 47 years old, against Leon. And then, about a couple of weeks later, he was interviewed under caution. And at the end of it he felt absolutely assured in his own mind that would be the end of the matter…

“I learnt, it must have been in July of the following year after he died, from the Independent on Sunday that no further action would have been taken. I then got my lawyers to write to the police saying, ‘Was this story true?’, because they hadn’t bothered to inform me, and I suppose about a month later I got a reply.”

Never mind, eh. Maybe the huge Home Office inquiry into paedophiles operating decades ago will have more luck with their admin? Currently under investigation are:

Accountability and Reparations for Victims and Survivors of Abuse
Cambridge House, Knowl View and Rochdale
Children in Custodial Institutions
Children outside the UK
Child Sexual Exploitation by Organised Networks
Lambeth Council
Lord Janner
Nottinghamshire Councils
Residential Schools
The Anglican Church
The Internet
The Roman Catholic Church
Westminster

Not under investigation – yet – are:  the Midland Bank, British Leyland, the RAC, the FA and… No, scratch that. The FA is now in the mire. Following the disturbing stories that former Spurs striker Paul Stewart was sexually assaulted by a youth coach as a child and Andy Woodward was abused by Crew Alexandra coach Barry Burnell, the Daily Mail declares: “The scandal that could be worse than Jimmy Savile: How football has been shaken to its core by tales of sexual abuse by monsters in tracksuits.”

Worse than Jimmy Savile? That would be gibbering disc jockey Jimmy Savile who abused hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people. He did. Be in no doubt about it. In 2013, Met Commander Peter Spindler, the man then leading the Jimmy Savile abuse probe, told the BBC that the celebrity had “groomed a nation”. Now the old bastard is worm food, the nation can heel.

But we can’t move on because although Savile was never arrested, charged let alone tried for his apparent depravity, his name has become the gage by which all perverts are measured. It’s not enough that young footballers were molested. It has to be a national travesty that they were. We should be calling for the forces of law and justice to investigate the accused, weigh the burden of proof and for all evidence to be tested in court. But instead of substance, we get hype.

In 2014, the Metropolitan police said ‘Nick’s’ stories of a cabal of wealthy and powerful perverts raping and killing children for sport werecredible and true”. If you say you were abused, then it is fact. So today British football is full of paedos. It’s no longer an inquiry if guilt is known before the facts have been looked at. It’s an inquisition. Nick’s stories were not credible and true. But instead of learning from ‘Nick’ and treating the next story with circumspection, we get panic.

In February, the Met attempted to save face. The Guardian headlined a story: “Met police may end policy of automatic belief of sex abuse complaints – Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe, writing in the Guardian, says police should test evidence ‘with open minds’.” You should no more assume every claim is credible and true than you can take it as read that an IC3 male driving a car is guilty of DWB (Driving Whilst Black).

But gathering evidence and assuming innocence is not as exciting as the police’s propaganda unit nicking celebs for the cameras.

If the past few seasons of paedo hunting have taught us anything it is that we should treat all accusations with a healthy scepticism, be on the look out for the next witch-hunt and wonder if in 30 years time we’ll be looking back and wondering why the police, Parliament and media were so obsessed with the dead and decrepit that they overlooked and were incurious about troubling stories and crimes happening today.

The Jimmy Savile sex hunt: Paedo Peel and the only popstar who seduced a groupie

tumblr_o38bsczQGl1u5f06vo1_1280 The Mirror has a BBC paedophile scoop: “World Famous singer seduced tragic BBC girl”. The “girl” was 15-year-old Claire McAlpine, who committed suicide.  The superstar singer who “seduced” her is..?

David Bowie!

No. This one’s still alive. But the Thin White Duke did shag teenyboppers.

Reading on we’re told:

Tragic BBC girl was seduced by world famous singer – and pal vows to reveal name

Woman “vows” to reveal name of pop star her dead pal says she shagged. If you can’t see the holes in this one, get to the opticians pronto. And why wait to name him if naming him is worthy of a vow, a solemn promise? Time’s ticking. Get on with it. Before he dies.

Kelly Gold says her friend Claire McAlpine – at the centre of the Tony Blackburn scandal – was abused by a world famous singer who is alive today

No. The BBC is at the centre of the scandal. It sacked Tony Blackburn last week for his denial that the Beeb interviewed him about McAlpine’s claims made in her diary that a BBC DJ had seduced her. Now we get the story of the popstar who “abused” her.

It was a big shock to Rod Liddle, who quips in the Sunday Times:

I have to say that my reaction to the news that the BBC had sacked the disc jockey Tony Blackburn last week was one of profound shock. I thought he had been sacked in about 1986. It didn’t occur to me that he was still there, smarming away, a sort of cryonically preserved bad joke paid for by the licence fee. I began to wonder if that was the point of the corporation’s “secret memos” that were said to have led to his dismissal.

Something like: “We’re still employing Blackburn? How in the name of Christ did that happen? He was smash-the-radio-set obnoxious in 1971, even worse than ‘Stewpot’. Quick — someone fit him up for a historical sex crime and then we can get shot of him for good.”..

 The BBC has defenestrated Blackburn mainly because he is no big loss to the corporation and it gives the impression that it is doing something, taking action.

Blackburn is accused of being less than copious in his response to allegations — made 45 years ago — that he seduced a 15-year-old girl called Claire McAlpine who later killed herself, leaving behind a diary claiming she had been “used” by a bunch of these horrible BBC disc jockeys.

Blackburn denies everything, point blank. And there is not a shred of evidence to implicate him in any wrongdoing, other than that diary. A police officer said of this diary at the time: “It would be ridiculous to connect anyone or anything in her diary with reality.” The young convent girl was a bit of a fantasist.

So, here’s Kelly Gold with her beckoning finger:..

…she believes the schoolgirl may have been stalked by pregnancy fears before she died from a pills overdose at her Watford home. Kelly also told how she watched her pal being led to Savile’s BBC dressing room at least twice.

Believes. May.

“I’d been to see Top of the Pops regularly and the guards ­recognised my Corona stage school uniform, so I didn’t need to sign in. We went into the changing rooms to get ready, and these young schoolgirls were transforming ­themselves into little pop queens…I knew what was happening to Claire. I knew what was happening to all of us, and what everybody who’s been at the inquiry has been saying. It was happening to Claire because she was the new kid on the block. We didn’t go there in the hope that we would be touched up. It wasn’t on our radar. Over the years I’ve thought about the alibi I gave her for that night and I wish I hadn’t. Within a couple of weeks she was dead.” 

In other news in the Sunday Times:

IN 1973 the head of programmes at BBC Radio 1 summoned Jimmy Savile to a private meeting to discuss “serious” matters. Derek Chinnery, in the company of executive producer Doreen Davies, confronted Savile over rumours that had reached the ears of Douglas Muggeridge, the controller of Radio 1 and Radio 2, that the DJ had a sexual interest in young girls.

A relaxed Savile began the meeting with a joke and casually dismissed the allegations in much the same way as he would do throughout his life.

The significance of that meeting, however, goes far beyond Savile’s casual disdain; it illustrates how early in his career the rumours about his sexual behaviour reached BBC bosses and how they failed to act on them.

Which make you wonder at this news in yesterday’s Times.

A memo sent in 1971 by Tony Preston, the BBC’s assistant head of variety, claims that Blackburn “was interviewed” by himself and another official. Blackburn said that “the contents of these documents are untrue” and part of a “whitewash and cover-up”. A source close to the DJ said that Mr Preston, who has died, may have fabricated his claim to appear as if he had investigated the allegation. Dame Janet’s report shows that BBC lawyers told him he was “duty bound” to investigate.

That’s Dame Janet Smith, who has published a 1,000-page report on the BBC’s failure to stop sexual abuse.

In other news, over in the Star we read:

THE vile musings of sex monster Jimmy Savile can still be found on a BBC Top Of The Pops tribute site.

 

ToTp

 

Scrub and scrub as it might the BBC cannot get that Savile stain out. That might be because the BBC’s scrubbers have badly stained hands.

But hold on – what’s this?

 

John Peel sex paedo

 

 

A big BBC tribute page to BBC Radio DJ John Peel. He’s the ‘national treasure’ who shagged 13-year-olds.

“Well, of course I didn’t ask for ID. All they wanted me to do was to abuse them sexually which, of course, I was only too happy to do.’ He complained that American girls had ‘this strange notion of virginity as a tangible thing which you surrendered to your husband on your wedding night. So they would do anything but s*** you’. Aged 26, in 1965, Peel married a 15-year-old American girl called Shirley Anne Milburn. He later claimed she and her family had lied about her age. They divorced in 1973. Some years later, after returning to the U.S., she committed suicide.

Good old Peely the Peelophile. He was hip – so he gets to Rest In Praise:

Jimmy Savile and John Peel’s sex with underage girls will end the depraved BBC

jimmy savile teddy
When asked by a reporter in 2001 whether he was concerned if he would be remembered as a “conning pervert and abuser when he died,” Jimmy Savile replied:

‘If I’m gone that’s that. Bollocks to my legacy. Whatever is said after I’m gone is irrelevant.’

The reporter then asked if Savile was ‘into little girls’, to which the BBC presenter replied:

‘I’d rather not even opinionate on this. I’ll leave it to the psychologists to sort out the psychology of child abuse.’

Every day a new allegation emerges about Jimmy Savile. These allegations now cover 6 decades, and include allegations of the rape of children, mentally ill patients and the sexual assault of a disabled girl. The police are currently investigating over 300 lines of inquiry.

Savile’s attacks occurred in hospitals, clubs and the BBC. And it is the latter organization that is coming under considerable scrutiny by the police.

The question is how did the BBC employ such an individual, when there were known allegations against him? And what was the everyday culture at BBC that could allow Savile’s behavior to go unnoticed? Uncommented upon? Even tolerated?

Tony Blackburn, dead Savile and the death of BBC dancer Claire McAlpine

claire

 

In front-page news billed as a”World Exclusive”, the Mirror brings news of Tony Blackburn, the BBC radio DJ of no little vintage. “BBC Axe Sex Probe DJ Tony Blackburn,” announces the dire headline, one seemingly written by an SEO expert for whom English is not their fist language. The headline can be unpacked in the first paragraph:

“DJ Tony Blackburn has been sacked by the BBC is a row about a sex abuse probe.”

Blackburn says he was never “quizzed” in 1971 over  a “woman’s allegations” he’d seduced a teenager. The BBC’s report out today says he was. He says, “They are destroying my career and reputation because my version of event does not tally with theirs.”

The story continues over page 4 and 5, “Beeb bosses covered up ‘DJ seduced girl’ claims,” chimes the Mirror. The girl was 15-year-old Claire McAlpine. We’ve reported on her before. In 2012, the Press linked her death to the then Sir Jimmy Savile, who after death became ‘Jimmy The Beast”.

 

News of the World 1972

 

Last month the Daily Mail had more:

“Claire McAlpine, 15, killed herself after being abused by an unnamed DJ on the show [Top of the Pops] on 1971.”

On the same day the Sun led with the Jimmy Savile Report, a review by Dame Janet Smith, who concluded that the BBC “HID” news that Savile had “seduced” a 15-year-old dancer on BBC TV’s Top of The Pops music show. The paper adds: “Clair [sic] McAlpine killed herself weeks after the alleged sexual encounter.”

 

claire mcalpine

 

Back then Jimmy did it.

Now the torchlight falls on Blackburn’s 73-year-old face. The BBC has sacked him. He says he never seduced McAlpine. He says he’s a “scapegoat”.

Looking at the media’s scattergun reporting on the case of Miss McAlpine reveals a story laced with agendas.

PS: On 7th April 1971 the Daily Express had Jimmy  Savile news (via Rabbitaway):

Jimmy Savile and Jon Peel: the BBC’s ugly Englishmen are always perverts

savile the womblesJimmy Savile is back in the news. The Sun leads with the Jimmy Savile Report, the review by Dame Janet Smith into the BBC stalwart who post-death was labelled the most prolific child molester of all time. News is that the BBC “HID” news that Savile had “seduced” a 15-year-old dancer on BBC TV’s Top of The Pops music show. The paper adds: “Clair [sic] McAlpine killed herself weeks after the alleged sexual encounter.”

We don’t know if the pair did have sex. We don’t know what part if any the alleged sex had in Claire McAlpine’s tragic death. All we know is that when Claire’s mother read of the alleged sex in her daughter’s diary – we don’t get to see what the teenager wrote – she “rang the BBC… demanding to speak to the chairman but was told that was impossible.”

The Sun joins the dots, saying “just a month later Clair died after taking an overdose of sleeping pills”.

The report says the BBC made no attempt to interview Claire or her mother. The BBC did meet with Savile, who denied any wrongdoing. He was also interviewed by an “independent barrister”.

Dame Janet says the BBC review was “inadequate”. She cannot understand why the BBC destroyed its own call logs from the time. Really? This is the BBC that erased or tossed away and wiped lots of its output, including Not Only… But Also, starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, and the BBC studio footage from the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landings.

 

News of the World 1972

News of the World 1972

 

On pages 4 and 5, the Sun re-introduces us to Sylvia Edwards. She says that when age 18, the 50-year-old Savile stuck his hand up her skirt in 1976 and told her “A fella could get used to this as it  ‘appens”. The Sun says “millions of BBC TV viewers” saw this because Savile was presenting Top of the Pops at the time and Sylvia was in the audience.

Horrified Sylvia ran to a floor manager to report what the DJ had done only to be told: “Get lost — it’s just Jimmy messing about.” In the judge’s draft report, she said Sylvia’s was “one of two quite serious indecent assaults” and girls on the show were placed in “moral danger”. But she added: “I do not think any member of senior management was ever made aware of Savile’s abuse of young people while working on Top of the Pops. In the testosterone-laden atmosphere where everyone was, in theory at least, over 16, child protection was simply not a live issue. No one noticed what Savile was doing: he was able to hide in plain sight.”

 

totp

 

The Sun lists Dame Janet’s main findings:

— Savile abused 45 victims who worked at or visited the BBC

— He abused staff and kids on Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix IT

— Some evidence a paedophile ring operated at BBC in 1970s

— Stars like Savile ‘untouchable’ and managers ‘above the law’

— Bosses quizzed Savile about his interest in young girls but no action was taken

— Managers should have heeded interviews with Savile in The Sun where he told of picking up girls

— BBC in 1970s dominated by booze culture and staff feared reporting abused would damage careers

— Culture of secrecy means whistleblowers are more scared to come forward today thand 40 years ago

— Another Savile scandal could still unfold at the BBC

And how did the Sun comment on Savile’s death, after he old them about “picking up girls”? Like this:

RIP JIMMY SAVILE – Prince Charles leads tributes as Jim’ll Fix It star dies aged 84

Now then, now then, cries and gals – We join 3,000 fans at Sir Jimmy Savile’s send-off

As for Sylvia’s story, we heard it first back in 2012. The Sun told us about the 19-year-old victim:

 

savile jimmy

 

In today’s report she is 18:

 

savile the sun reproting

 

The Daily Mail has more on the “BBC’s £10m Whitewash”.

“He raped , groped and abused girls and boys under the noses of complacent BBC chiefs…. He preyed on his 45 victims in  almost every BBC building he set foot in…”

The Mail mentions Claire McAlpine. It makes a clear link between her death and Savile:

“Claire McAlpine, 15, killed herself  after being abused by an unnamed DJ on the show [Top of the Pops] on 1971.”

Yes, that’s “CLAIRE”, the teenager the Sun calls “CLAIR”. In the rush to be right and prove Savile was a raping would-be killer who had sex with the dead on NHS time, the papers can’t even agree on the victims’ ages and names.

This is, of course, as much about bashing the BBC as it is hitting the revolting Savile. On cue, here’s resting BBC DJ John Peel. He’s the “national treasure, who also worked at the BBC. He’s dead. Julie Burchill wrote in 1999.

What did YOU do in the war, Daddy? Well, John Peel caught VD, and banged on about it. Until recently, Peel banged on a lot about sex. Like many an ugly Englishman, he went to America, where that nation’s young women found a Limey accent so beguiling that they barely looked at the face it came out of: “All they wanted me to do was abuse them, sexually, which, of course, I was only too happy to do,”

Peel told the Guardian in 1975. “Girls,” he said to the Sunday Correspondent in 1989, “used to queue up outside oral sex they were particularly keen on, I remember one of my regular customers, as it were, turned out to be 13, though she looked older.”

This was the Sixties. Fleeing America after the authorities quite rightly objected to him having sex with young teenage girls, Peel was joined by his wife, Shirley, a Texan girl, who was 15 when he married her.

If you are connected. If you are rich. If you have friends in high places and do things they like, you get away with it. Same then as it is now. Nothing changes.

BBC crisis: Jimmy Savile cover-up, Alan Yentob’s ‘omerta’ and the Kids Company troughers

LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 22:  A poster for a series of church services is displayed opposite BBC Broadcasting House on October 22, 2012 in London, England. A BBC1 'Panorama' documentary to be broadcast later tonight contains new allegations about the handling by BBC2 programme 'Newsnight' concerning claims of sexual abuse allegedly carried out by fomer BBC television presenter, Jimmy Savile, the transmission of which was subsequently dropped. Police have confirmed that Sir Jimmy Savile, the BBC presenter and DJ who died in October 2011 aged 84, may have sexually abused young girls on BBC premises.

A poster for a series of church services is displayed opposite BBC Broadcasting House on October 22, 2012 in London, England. A BBC1 ‘Panorama’ documentary contains new allegations about the handling by BBC2 programme ‘Newsnight’ concerning claims of sexual abuse allegedly carried out by former BBC television presenter, Jimmy Savile, the transmission of which was subsequently dropped.

 

Jimmy Savile’s rotting corpse continues to bob around the news. Today the Sun has news of “BBC boss Yentob and the Savile cover-up.”

We know the BBC failed to investigate claims their favourite uncle was a paedophile. Liz MacKean, the excellent reporter who wanted to reveal the story on Newsnight, was quashed.  She is no longer on the hard-hitting (it says here) news show, which somehow managed to survive the scandal.

But what else? The Sun’s Harry Cole writes in what the Sun calls an “Exclusive“:

BEEB boss Alan Yentob said the journalists who exposed the cover- up of the Jimmy Savile scandal were “traitors to the BBC”, one of them has sensationally claimed.

And:

Respected former producer Meirion Jones claims the remark about him was made to another employee after he contributed to Panorama’s exposé “Savile — What The BBC Knew”.

Jones worked with MacKean on Newsnight. He no longer works on the show.

Mr Yentob, 68, strongly denies making the comment. The film by Mr Jones and colleague Liz MacKean revealed the corporation’s bids to stop Newsnight exposing Savile as a predatory paedophile who struck on BBC premises.

They can’t both be right. Maybe one them has misspoken  or mis-remebered or whatever modish PR-made word covers this wort of thing?

In an article for Spectator Life magazine, Mr Jones said: “A BBC colleague abused as a child wrote to Tony Hall [director general] to complain about the Savile affair. In his email he says he approached Yentob just after Panorama broadcast a film about whether or not there had been a cover-up at the BBC. He claims that Yentob denounced us. ‘Liz MacKean and Meirion Jones are traitors to the BBC,’ Yentob told him.”

So much for Cole’s “exclusive”.

The story in The Spectator’s new offshoot is calledThe Pasha of Portland Place“.

…I heard Alan Yentob had been seen prowling the corridors, leaning on Newsnight, haranguing the reporter Lucy Manning and escorting Camila Batmanghelidjh into the Today studio. After Savile, it should have been abundantly clear that managers shouldn’t interfere with investigations close to home, but here was Yentob trying to influence the Batmangate probe into the charity he chaired. It also felt a bit like the Panorama investigation in 2013 into Comic Relief’s dodgy investments. That was delayed after celebrities appealed to the great and the good in the BBC.

A BBC colleague of mine who had been abused as a child wrote to Tony Hall to complain about the Savile affair. In his email (copied to me) he says he approached Yentob just after Panorama broadcast a film about whether or not there had been a cover-up at the BBC (the film included clips of Liz MacKean and me talking about what the BBC knew). He claims that Yentob denounced us. ‘Liz MacKean and Meirion Jones are traitors to the BBC,’ Yentob told him. He strongly denies saying this, but it wouldn’t be the first time he had complained about people breaking the BBC’s code of omertà.

The BBC will eat itself.

Jimmy Savile: BBC pays compensation to children’s home boy abused on BBC TV show

Jimmy Savile makes a return to the news, featuring in the Daily Express story: “Jim’ll fix it victim paid by BBC: ‘I ran away but BBC security team took me back’.”

The BBC, of course, attempted to squash its own investigation into Sir Jimmy’s alleged crimes, but did dear old Aunty really delivers victims for the depraved DJ to abuse?

THE BBC has paid £15,000 to a fan of Jimmy Savile who was molested in Television Centre as a teenager after writing in to Jim’ll Fix It. Savile paid for the young fan to travel to London only to hand him over to another abuser. It is understood to be the first BBC settlement to be made public following the Savile scandal.

Now aged 54, the victim tells all. It was 1977 when he wrote to Savile:

“When I arrived I was shown to his room at Television Centre and met him and there were other small children present… I ran out and tried to get help and asked the security men at reception to help but an assistant of Savile’s turned up and took me back to his room with security. I had been so used to being sexually abused I knew what was to come. A man in his 40s or early 50s joined us, sat behind me and said he would be taking care of me.”

The man says Savile was “sexually aroused” with small girl on his lap. Then someone named Brian came in and took him away.

“At this house (the club) Brian abused me and a much smaller boy aged between seven and nine who looked very poorly and thin and was also being abused by a very obese man… [Next morning] Savile came in, and took the other boy away and said I should hurry up to have breakfast. I had breakfast and Savile made me a lunch box.”

The teenager was was taken to Victoria Station and given £5.

He later returned to the children’s home in Northern Ireland, which has itself been the subject of a public inquiry into abuse.

That’s interesting. Kincora?

Says Robert:

“The BBC initially said that Savile was not known as a groomer and that was given as a reason for refusing the claim. Then they said my being abused by his friend was not something they could or would consider. I believe there are many cases where the BBC has refused claims because Savile was just the arranger for abuse by others and the BBC does not believe it is responsible.

“I believe this is a scandal because clearly Savile via the BBC brought me over to be abused by someone else.”

But what about the children’s home? The Express offers nothing.

Over in the Mirror, we get more:

NHS pays Jimmy Savile victims a paltry £10,000 – while half have yet to receive a penny

The Times advertises Jimmy Savile’s Scottish home as ‘good for the soul’

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 22.13.25

 

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.

Edward Heath: shaking hands with dead paedos in Savile and Jaconelli’s Scarborough

ted heath paedophile

British Conservative politician, Edward Heath (1916 – 2005) signs autographs after the ceremony for the renaming of Lympne Airport to Ashford Airport, Ashford, Kent, England, 10th June 1969. 

 

Edward Heath was a peado! Well, maybe. The Sun continues to fan the speculation that former Prime Minister Edward Heath (dead) might have had sex with a 12-year-old boy (or might not have had sex with anyone – ed) by telling its reades that “COPS are investigating links between ex-PM Ted Heath and a notorious paedo pal of Jimmy Savile dubbed King Cornet.”

Detectives are trawling through dozens of files over the connection to ex-Scarborough Mayor Peter Jaconelli.

Savile is dead. Jaconelli is dead. But the cops are very much alive to the idea of showing how the Old Bill don’t protect nonces by inviting anyone who ever knew any of the dead men to come forward if they “believe” they were molested by one or more of them.

The Sun adds:

The 21-stone ice cream boss abused 32 boys during a 40-year reign of terror. He died in 1999 aged 73 but was later exposed by cops as a serial predator with links to senior Tories.

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

richard kerr

 

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:

Westminster paedophiles: how police Sergeant Don Mackintosh and the church saved Cyril Smith in Stockport

Cyril Smith in 1981 peadophile rochdale liberal

Cyril Smith in 1981

 

Westminster paedophiles: a look at the story of VIP crimes against children during the 1970s and 1980s. The tabloid Press have been hot on the news of corruption in high places. Let’s look at today’s coverage:

Number of front pages covering the story: nil.

The Sun page 11: Rod Liddle says the elite are “shiedling political paedos”.

Liddle says news that gross former Labour and Liberal politican Cyril Smith was arrested for alleged child abuse and his files wiped from history explains why no politican has been treated to the same high-profile raids as celebrities – think of innocent Jim Davidson being arrested at Heathtrow Airport as her flew IN to the country – and police raiding Sunderland FC’s Adam Johnson’s home.

We’d add that no police have been so brutally dealt with, either.

Liddle adds that because the police allegedly abused the Official Secrets Act to busty Smith’s depravity, the “morbidly obese self-publicist” was free to attacked boys in his Rochdale constituency and beyond.

Who now trusts the police?

And what of now?

The Daily Mail has news on page 22:

“Scores of paedophiles, rapists and even killers are being granted bail after being found guiulty.”

Suppose you could call that progress. Unlike Sir Jimmy Savile and Sir Cyril Smith at least they were tried before they dropped dead.

Daily Mirror page 26: “No one ever tipped me off about Savile, says Rantzen”

Childline founder Dame Esther Rantzen has denied being told Jimmy Savile was a paedophile decades before he was unmasked.

Westminster paedophiles are like Jimmy Savile and Peter Jaconelli: guilty now that they’re dead

Savile and Jaconelli

Savile and Jaconelli

 

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: now comes the cash

Court artist sketch by Elizabeth Cook of Chris Denning who has been jailed for 13 years for sexually assaulting 24 boys – including one allegedly at Jimmy Savile’s house.

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’’.

Jimmy Savile And The Married Bisexual Monk And Convicted Child Abuser Who Fixed Clocks For Kids

harding savile

 

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.

Jimmy Savile Compensation: Victims Roll Up To The Great Charity Give Away

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.

DO we belive a Westminster paedophile ring operated in the 1960s and 1970s? Do we believe there was murder?

Martin Evans:

Scotland Yard is looking at claims that an alleged paedophile ring with links to former government figures, could have been involved in a murder

Any facts?

Detectives investigating allegations of organised child sex abuse in the 1970s and 1980s are now examining possible murder links, the Metropolitan Police has said.

Paedo-Panic: Puxton Park Would Have Let Jimmy Savile Watch The Birds

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.

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.”
