Sir Jimmy Savile dies aged 84

http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16099015

So:

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

"Your attempt to portray this as conspiracy theory and describing me as "aroused" and "a perv" is libellous."

You really are a comedian aren't you.

"Libellous" - now there's a big word for a moron like you. A real legal eagle. You'll be making legal history - being libelled on an anonymous talkboard - you mentally deficient goatfucker.

You and your fellow fuckwits were clearly on the point of wetting your collective nappies with excitement when McAlpine was being falsely accused, and now you're all driving yourselves into a tumescent frenzy with the thought of pervs in every nook and cranny you can think of. Just the same as McCarthy and his "Reds under the Bed"

Haha. What a tool.

Just what the place needed, another abusive mental defective with a big mouth.

This one, I have encountered before.

He was nothing but an abusive idiot then, and he's nothing but an abusive idiot now.

The Krays were involved with paedophilia. Boothby, a Tory, was in it it up to his neck. As was Driberg (Labour).

The people mentioned were gay. They probably had sex with youths under the age of consent (which didn't actually exist at the time for homosexuals) but to call them paedophiles is to misunderstand the term.

Brunothecat - 26 Nov 2012 12:13:12 (#8633 of 17322)

Its a bizarre thing, though. You would expect any prosecutions to reflect the laws at the time any offences had been committed. So theoretically people could get prosecuted just for being homosexual if it happened long enough ago.

> You would expect any prosecutions to reflect the laws at the time any offences had been committed.

I understand where you're coming from, but it's not what I would expect.

The law generally works that something cannot normally be made retrospectively illegal, and that if something formerly illegal is made legal, no further prosecutions will be brought.

Your country expects needs you to do the right thing, pw.

Brunothecat - 26 Nov 2012 12:37:00 (#8636 of 17322)

Yes.

Tell him what a cunt he is, then he will think you've given him your attention at which point you pop him on ignore.

Works a treat.

Isolde - 26 Nov 2012 12:41:36 (#8637 of 17322)

Already done. The last bit, anyway.

Policywatcher - 26 Nov 2012 12:42:16 (#8638 of 17322)

Snap.

but it was that year he was put in charge of a taskforce for six months to look at ways of overhauling the place.



Did you watch the second ITV docu, Lawlsie? People keep repeating this, but he wasn't (apparently) 'put in charge' of the task-force at all. In fact his role was never clarified at all, a situation that seemed to suit the Broadmoor top brass (including the hapless big boss, himself put forward for the job on Savile's recommendation), and certainly suited Savile.

Brunothecat - 26 Nov 2012 13:07:58 (#8640 of 17322)

The stench of cover up is overwhelming. All this bollocks about Savile being covered because people were fiddling their timesheets looks like a diversion intended to limit scrutiny to junior levels.

The notion that a junior staff member is going to feel confident blowing the whistle on a celebrity appointee with politicians for friends is absurd even if they aren't fiddling their timesheet.

nubuck - 26 Nov 2012 13:11:19 (#8641 of 17322)

Extend that notion and there would be no such thing as a whistle blower.

The Arthur C Clarke defence.

Eh?

You think the only people who get the whistle blown on them are gold tracksuit sporting celebrities who have Christmas din din with the PM occasionally and have been given access to supposedly top security facilities?

nubuck - 26 Nov 2012 13:40:58 (#8644 of 17322)

Er, actually, no.

The MCAlpine stuff reminds me of the Simpsons spoof. Homer Simpson is accused of molesting the babysitter when he pulls a piece of candy off which had stuck to her bottom. There's a media storm where his guilt is automatically assumed and Homer becomes a hate figure. On national TV a sobbing woman cries "I don't know Homer Simpson, I never met him or had any real contact with him but - I'm sorry I can't go on" and the interviewer says "That's OK, your tears say more than any real evidence ever could."

FFS, NTT. The dead can't fucking sue. Learn the fucking law you idiots.
