  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

ITV news described him as a loner, says it all.

ITV news described him as a loner

That's nearly as bad as the neighbours saying "He kept himself to himself".

Why is it so many male celebrities (esp lonely, fucked up ones) have such strange relationships with their mothers?

I blame Oedipus.

Has there ever been a good media week for loners?

I wonder whether, given Sir Jim's sterling work at St James's in Leeds, someone will sing St James Infirmary Blues at his funeral:

I went down to St. James Infirmary,

Saw my baby there,

Stretched out on a long white table,

So cold, so sweet, so fair.

Radio presenter Paul Burnett told Sky News...

'He did a lot of work as a porter in the hospital that he collected money for. He would go there at night and work as a porter and I think he loved the people that he worked with

Oh dear. Didn't he do a lot at Stoke Mandeville too?

I'm conjuring up some awful thoughts here

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:10:03 (#91 of 17322)

He went to Stoke Mandeville after being asked to leave the Leeds hospitals. Where, apparently, they kept a VERY close eye on him.

When my son was in Leeds General we spent a lot of time there with him, and one of the nurses on his ward told us a few tales about wonderful man-of-the-people Jimmy Savile.

Apparently Savile had an injunction preventing this picture apparently of him with children at a Jersey care home being published.

All this innuendo is shocking. Doesn't anyone have any reliable links to show he really bummed corpses, or something?

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:14:43 (#95 of 17322)

'A' Jersey care home, or 'the' Jersey care home?

54321wibble - 29 Oct 2011 20:17:40 (#96 of 17322)

That I don't know (but my first thought was the Jersey care home)

There surely can't be that many care homes on Jersey

A quick google reveals:

"I once interviewed Larry Grayson for a local radiostation. After the interview, Larry says to me 'Doyou know the truth about XXXXXX XXXXXX? All that workhe does at the hospitals - well it's all a front.The real reason he's happy to help the hospitalporters is because he likes to fuck the dead.'

"At which point Larry Grayson does an impersonationof XXXXXX fucking a dead body, while repeatingthe words 'fucks the dead, fucks the dead'

"Larry then sits down leans over to me and says 'hewon't be able to fucking fix that if it ever gets out!'"

Bronski Beat and The Communards won't be the same without him.

I think we can all now fill in the Xs without fear of libel.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 20:20:42 (#100 of 17322)

Is it possible to fuck someone who's dead? I would have thought rigor mortis would be a bit of barrier
