Sir Jimmy Savile dies aged 84


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

FleurDuMal - 29 Oct 2011 14:57:37 (#1 of 17322)

Ah, a eulogy!

WilyCoyote - 29 Oct 2011 14:58:00 (#2 of 17322)

In many ways, he touched us all.

FleurDuMal - 29 Oct 2011 14:58:34 (#3 of 17322)

Speak for yourself! He never got his paws on me!

RankBajin - 29 Oct 2011 14:58:37 (#4 of 17322)

He's in heaven now with Michael Jackson.

tstaddon - 29 Oct 2011 14:59:30 (#6 of 17322)

Ok, who else here didn't get Jim to fix it?

RankBajin - 29 Oct 2011 14:59:55 (#7 of 17322)

Well, he was a devout Catholic.

Make of that what you will.

FleurDuMal - 29 Oct 2011 15:01:35 (#8 of 17322)

I'm sure if he was a devout Catholic, he didn't do any of those things you suggest in the thread header.

Piscineaste - 29 Oct 2011 15:02:01 (#9 of 17322)

< Whistles Nolan Sisters tune >

RankBajin - 29 Oct 2011 15:02:32 (#10 of 17322)

No Catholic would ever do such a thing.

Anyway, he will be remembered by many. Often with a shudder.

RankBajin - 29 Oct 2011 15:06:12 (#11 of 17322)

Remember him this way

RankBajin - 29 Oct 2011 15:08:20 (#12 of 17322)

Or touching up a 14 year old Coleen Nolan on TOTP in front of millions of viewers.

Piscineaste - 29 Oct 2011 15:09:44 (#13 of 17322)

Guess it made a change from touching up corpses of 14 year olds.

JollityFarm - 29 Oct 2011 15:12:44 (#14 of 17322)

I was surprised to hear this, it seemed like he was going to live forever.

Anyway, I await badtouch rumours from places on the internet other than here. Might be a couple of hours.

CaptainBlack - 29 Oct 2011 15:12:56 (#15 of 17322)

He was one of those people who always seemed to be the same age his entire life.

breakfast - 29 Oct 2011 15:14:04 (#16 of 17322)

I only have a second hand experience of Sir Jimmy (thank god). My mum took my grandma to a Leeds hospital for her appointment about a cataract operation. Sir Jimmy was in the waiting room and my mum felt that he was decidedly creepy. However the old ladies there seemed to enjoy his presence and being entertained by him.

That's a bit of a rubbish story isn't it.

Oh well.

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:14:27 (#17 of 17322)

He raised around £40 million for charity over the years. Which is a lot more than I'm likely to do. About £40 million in fact...

Not that it excuses the "alleged" stuff, but still.

RunnyBabbit - 29 Oct 2011 15:15:30 (#18 of 17322)

He was very quiet in recent years.

Phone broke?

Sim'll fix it.

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:15:41 (#19 of 17322)

Bensawbridge - 29 Oct 2011 15:16:49 (#20 of 17322)

I once saw him eating a fuddruckers burger with his mother

PrimePaon - 29 Oct 2011 15:17:12 (#21 of 17322)

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:34:52 (#35 of 17322)

D'you remember back in the 60's when he made that record "Ahab the Arab"? That suddenly came back to me

was he really a corpse toucher?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 15:35:09 (#36 of 17322)

He claimed to have been the first DJ to use twin turntables, the entire hiphop community is in his debt.

Electro - 29 Oct 2011 15:36:12 (#37 of 17322)

He was a staunch supporter of Margaret Thatcher and spent 11 successive New Years with the former prime minister at Chequers!

RosyLovelady - 29 Oct 2011 15:39:29 (#38 of 17322)

I remember Ahab the Ayrab, LadyDi. It was a very stupid song, with racial stereotyping which was offensive even in those far-off times.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:39:41 (#39 of 17322)

Wasn't he called in to talk to Charles and Di and try and stop them from divorcing?

I'd have jumped out of the window

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:42:42 (#40 of 17322)

Wasn't he called in to talk to Charles and Di and try and stop them from divorcing?

It takes some imagination to think of SirJim as the answer to a failing marriage. Or perhaps we've misjudged him.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:47:51 (#41 of 17322)

Perhaps the Queen misjudged him?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 15:48:31 (#42 of 17322)

He fought over one hundred professional wrestling bouts losing nearly every one of them

He was devoted to his mum.

As a mum, I find it sad that this is so often the sign of someone odd. Somehow it shouldn't be.

1OffManMental - 29 Oct 2011 16:00:08 (#48 of 17322)

What is this sinister charabanc business?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 16:01:08 (#49 of 17322)

It's bit odd when you're 80 and she's dead

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 16:05:38 (#51 of 17322)


He kept all his mum's clothes in the wardrobe after she died and left her bedroom exactly as it was. That's a bit odd.

kokolores - 29 Oct 2011 16:07:19 (#52 of 17322)

So that means <does some maths> that back in 1967, the Summer of Love and the Beatles and Top of the Pops and all, Jimmy was already 40. Phew!

1OffManMental - 29 Oct 2011 16:08:03 (#53 of 17322)

Grief does strange things to people.

Wearing his mum's clothes and keeping her corpse exactly as it was would be a bit odd.

StakludKar - 29 Oct 2011 16:23:02 (#56 of 17322)

Within minutes, MINUTES of the news breaking on Sky @ 3pm there were fulsome tributes from Dave Lee Travis.

What more epitaph would you want. And Diddy David Hamilton has just been on.

Its the main damn story on there. Suppose they're trying to make up for not going big on the death of Betty Driver the other saturday.

Sky man Ashish Joshi has said, "There was really no bad stories about him At All", a universally kind and loved man, then.

Although Nick Highams on BBC in the pre-packed obit does mention that Jimell was mysterious and essentially a bit odd.

Colleen Nolan did actually appear with him when he was a guest on Loose Women a few months back. Not awkward at all.

oohbetty - 29 Oct 2011 16:23:08 (#57 of 17322)

Let's not forget internet poster TheP (RIP)'s friend who snorted a line of coke from Saville's engorged member.

StakludKar - 29 Oct 2011 16:30:16 (#58 of 17322)

Will it get menioned on Have I Got News For You?

Leeds poice were called to his flat @ midday, and have announced there were no suspicious circumstances to Jimells death.

The cops always announce this whenever a much loved Octegenarian celebrity dies

TommyDGNR8 - 29 Oct 2011 16:32:11 (#59 of 17322)

Fare thee well, Sir Jimmy.

You really wound up some people just by being you.

For that, and your charitable work

I salute you.

Leftie - 29 Oct 2011 16:43:41 (#60 of 17322)

I bet The Guardian are relieved they closed The Talk. It'd be a nightmare having him die at the weekend with no moderators.

DorianJKHawkwack - 29 Oct 2011 18:58:10 (#79 of 17322)

Something very wrong with Jimmy Savile.

My ex was a nurse at Leeds General, and lived in Roundhay not far from him. She said the rumours about him and cadavers were rife, and nobody trusted him. He worked as a porter (voluntary) but he gave everyone the creeps.

I spent one boring day on a train with him up to Glasgow and back filming a BR ad back in the 80s. He was someone who couldn't hold a conversation at all. All he did was talk: either about himself, or make some naff joke. What a tedious, tedious old twat he was.

Narcissist, too close to his mother, worked around dead bodies and children, never married (or had a lover), kept a shrine to his mother (had all her clothes dry cleaned once a year for Chrissakes!)...AND a disc jockey.

One of the weirdest fuckers ever to make it onto the telly.

Everyone has a sexual outlet. I dread to think what his must have been.

Looking forward to the TV film of his life. My bet is it'll outshine Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howard as all the dirt comes out at last...

Electro - 29 Oct 2011 19:00:00 (#80 of 17322)

He claimed to have invented the disco.

deadmanwalking23 - 29 Oct 2011 19:00:01 (#81 of 17322)

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

JohnIlly - 29 Oct 2011 19:01:20 (#82 of 17322)

ITV news described him as a loner

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

DorianJKHawkwack - 29 Oct 2011 19:10:08 (#83 of 17322)

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

JohnIlly - 29 Oct 2011 19:19:31 (#86 of 17322)

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.

shadwell - 29 Oct 2011 19:56:14 (#87 of 17322)

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.

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:12:22 (#92 of 17322)

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.

54321wibble - 29 Oct 2011 20:13:20 (#93 of 17322)

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

Tenesmus - 29 Oct 2011 20:13:40 (#94 of 17322)

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!'"

54321wibble - 29 Oct 2011 20:20:52 (#101 of 17322)

Vendor - possibly the care home

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:22:58 (#102 of 17322)

Not clicking on a fascist link, I'm afraid.

54321wibble - 29 Oct 2011 20:24:52 (#103 of 17322)

Sorry - hadn't looked where the link went

Try this

Leeds-based firm Fox Hayes has commenced legal action against The Sun newspaper on behalf of TV personality Jimmy Savile.

Savile, the star of children’s television favourite Jim’ll Fix It, decided to start proceedings against the Rupert Murdoch paper after a series of articles linked the former Radio One DJ with Jersey children’s home Haut de la Garenne.

The police are currently investigating the care home after human remains were found at the residence where children were allegedly tortured and sexually abused.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 20:25:11 (#104 of 17322)

I'd be more willing to believe it was true if they called Wilfred Bramble by his real name, Wilfred Bramwell (I think but it's def not Bramble). As he was arrested for importuning (lovely word) in gents toilets, it seems likely he prefers men to little boys

didn't realise it was fascist until I read it

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 20:27:40 (#105 of 17322)

But didn't it turn out that the "human remains" didn't actually exist? I was listening to something about this on Radio 4. The whole thing was either made up or a big cover up

rafibrown - 29 Oct 2011 20:27:50 (#106 of 17322)

I'd only heard of him vaguely and I can't find much on the net about these rumours at all. But here is an interview with him, in which he denies all biblical knowledge of corpses and kids.

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 20:27:59 (#107 of 17322)

He claimed to have invented the disco.

In the 40s and 50s, the musicians union was very sniffy about people playing records in public without hiring musicians, Jimmy Saville solved the problem by hiring bands and not bothering to let them play.

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:30:20 (#108 of 17322)

And he was the first 'dance hall' DJ to use two decks so he could segue records smoothly. But he fucked corpses, so it's a bit 'good news / bad news' really.

mancurse - 29 Oct 2011 20:37:32 (#109 of 17322)

Macman told me the sad news with the words: "Guess who's found himself face down on the slab tonight?"

I went to see Jim'll Fix It being recorded on a school trip when I was about 14.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 20:38:35 (#110 of 17322)

Is there a doctor on the forum? Back to my question:

Is it possible to fuck a dead person?

In the You will Die thread, yumyum says that dead people groan etc and expel a lot of body fluid. Then I think rigor mortis sets in PDQ

Sabacious - 29 Oct 2011 20:41:32 (#111 of 17322)

Rigor mortis peaks a few hours after death and then gradually wears off over about 2 days.

Odd things can happen soon after death as motor nerves spontaneously fire. Sitting bolt upright in bed is not uncommon, and plenty of noises.

MadamZsaZsa - 29 Oct 2011 20:41:39 (#112 of 17322)

Rigor wears off again though, you can't keep a stiffie forever.

so to speak

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:41:57 (#113 of 17322)

From notoriously reliable Wikipedia; Rigor mortis (Latin meaning "stiffness of death") is one of the recognizable signs of death that is caused by a chemical change in the muscles after death, causing the limbs of the corpse to become stiff and difficult to move or manipulate. In humans it commences after about 3 hours, reaches maximum stiffness after 12 hours, and gradually dissipates until approximately 72 hours (3 days) after death.

(my bold)

so, pot of lube and you're in.

mancurse - 29 Oct 2011 20:42:45 (#114 of 17322)

Of course it's possible to fuck a dead person. Dead people sigh rather than groan, in my experience, but that's a perfectly valid response when your corpse is being fucked by a creepy old man.

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:42:50 (#115 of 17322)

erm, apparently.

< rattles jewellery >

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 20:46:11 (#116 of 17322)

I didn't realise rigor mortis wore off. Heck!But doesn't decompostion start pretty quickly?

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:48:28 (#117 of 17322)

Not in a mortuary setting, I wouldn't imagine. But keeping bodies in cold storage will obviously slow the rate at which rigor wears off.

I'm thinking about this too much, aren't I?

54321wibble - 29 Oct 2011 20:48:42 (#118 of 17322)

Apparently he sat with his mother's corpse for several days after she died. I have really bad thoughts going through my head now. Thanks threadsters!

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 29 Oct 2011 20:49:13 (#119 of 17322)

It's a service we provide, Wibbs.

JollityFarm - 29 Oct 2011 20:50:31 (#120 of 17322)

He insists it was because the ground was too frozen immediately after her death to dig a grave.

I'm not going to comment, I know nothing about these things.

GU Rock Lives

Opaz – 01:55pm Jun 12, 2001 BST ( #16 of 17)

It’s last at night in a fashionable area of downtown (sorry, Spon) Leeds, well-dressed people out on the town scurrying about on their way to expensive French restaurants. A slender leg is emerging from the open door of a black cab, we realise that the leg belongs to Poobie, whose face we can just make out in the gloom of the cab’s interior. She is wearing a long luxurious fur coat and a diamond necklace and is holding a cigarette in a holder in one hand. There’s a man in the back of the cab whose face is entirely in shadow, although tendrils of long white hair are just visible, as is his arm stretched over the back of the seat, holding a large cigar. We realise it is Jimmy Savile. Across the street, Shadrack lurks in a shadowy doorway, looking as if he might have been sleeping rough the last few nights, his dark suit rumpled and stained, a bottle of beer in his hand. The driver of the cab appears to be Boog, wearing a sinister smile.

From comments on the DM:

About 6 years ago, my wife and I were having a weekend away in Scarborough.... bumped into Sir Jimmy in an Italian Restaurant on the seafront.......he joined us for dinner (we picked up the bill!!) He told us stories of his life which will probably have never been mentioned or published....... greatly memorable experience..... hugely eccentric and direct..... a truly wonderful character in every way. Very sad to hear of his passing today. RIP Sir Jimmy. God Bless.

I wrote in to Jim'll Fix It when I was a girl, asking to ride showjumper Eddie Macken's horse Boomerang, or possibly Pele, anyway whichever one it was who kept winning everything at the time. I wanted of course to make him (Eddie, not Jimmy) fall in love with me and make me his wife. My only other hope of being Mrs Macken was to become a successful showjumper myself.

I didn't get on Jim'll Fix It and I didn't get to marry Eddie Macken.

Antimatter - 29 Oct 2011 23:15:24 (#154 of 17322)

I grew up in Aylesbury too, and my mum was an occupational therapist at Stoke Mandeville. She met JS on many occasions, and said he was a very difficult person to talk to, but the children really loved him. He just didn't seem able to relate to adults, well, live ones anyway.

When I used to go over to Norn during the school hols to stay with my peasant cousins I frequently lied to them in an attempt to come across like some supercool cat telling them I had been on Jim'll Fix It. My tales spanned the full romantic gamut of going on a rollercoaster and eating shit loads of ice cream sundaes (i.e. lots of exotica unheard of and unseen in Norn) and meeting John Conteh and Norris McWhirter et al. I even fashioned a Jim'll medal out of a bar of Shield soap, tinfoil and some ribbons using a pen knife and flashed it out of a bathroom window to the congregation of gullible ginger cuz-tards below who all worshipped me as "oldest cousin".

The young Jimmy Saville looks quite normal. Clearly either gay or a dabbler, but I certainly wouldn't have him down as a corpse-fucker with his own room in a hospital.

This thread is disturbing. I used to think it was all just, rather dark, GU japery. Now I don't know what to think. Could charity man Sir Jimmy really fuck corpses? I mean, who fucks corpses? That's just fucked up. Is it a Satanic ritual thing? Does he love Satan too?

This from the Daily Mail,(just for the record, and JohnIlly)

"Grieving families are being forced to wait more than a month to bury their dead as Britain struggles to cope with the worst winter in 13 years.

Undertakers say the number of unburied bodies has risen sharply since the start of the cold snap - and is expected to grow.

The sub-zero conditions and snowstorms have triggered a surge in deaths and left the ground too frozen to dig up across much of the UK.Digging in: A woman near Aviemore where temperatures fell to -18c

Digging in: A woman near Aviemore where temperatures fell to -18c

Despite the growing crisis, local councils are refusing to clear the backlog of bodies by opening up cemeteries on Saturdays and Sundays. Most still allow weekend burials only for Muslims and orthodox Jews.

According to the latest official figures, funeral directors and registrars are struggling to cope with the bodies of more than 54,113 who have died so far this year.

The figure is almost 6,000 higher than in previous years, with thousands of deaths still to be registered for January and the first week of February.

From the Graun's interview in April 2011,3604,178381,0

Savile rises from the bed to tell an anecdote from his book-reviewing days. "After a couple of weeks I said, 'I want to expose a book. It's for children and it's dreadful; there's this girl who's well underage and she takes up with a geezer who's yonks old and eventually they schlep off together.' "

What's the book?

"Wait a minute because you're the audience now," Savile chides. "Now bear in mind this was live TV, and I'm saying, personally, I don't think it's a good thing because I don't think an underage girl should be exhorted by her parents to strike up a relationship with a guy five, six, seven times older than she is. And the book - Peter Pan! I got the sack for that." He loves the story, laughs himself silly and hops back on to bed.

The creepiest moment in the documentary occurs late at night when he thinks the camera is off, and he talks about the dancehall days. "I wouldn't stand for any nonsense whatsoever. Ever, ever. I never threw anybody out. Tied them up and put them down in the bloody boiler house until I was ready for them. Two o'clock in the fucking morning... We'd tie em up and then we'd come back and I was the judge, jury and executioner. If a copper came and said 'You were a bit heavy with those two guys', I'd say 'Your daughter comes in here, she's 16, she's not supposed to come into town. Presumably you'd like me to look after her. If you don't want me to look after her, tell me and I'll let them dirty slags do what they want to her.' "

SlasherBindman - 30 Oct 2011 19:15:45 (#230 of 17322)


An early example of 'zero tolerance'.

DavidT999 - 30 Oct 2011 19:31:35 (#231 of 17322)

From his Telegraph obit:

This led to Savile’s becoming a Mecca dance-hall manager, and by the late 1950s he was responsible for the entertainment at 45 Mecca ballrooms across the country. At that time, Musicians’ Union regulations stipulated that entertainment in dance-halls should be provided by live bands, with records played only in the interval between performances. Realising that the records were invariably more popular than the band, Savile would circumvent the rules by paying the musicians not to perform. His policy of what he described as “zero tolerance” towards drunks and troublemakers revealed him in a somewhat less benevolent light. In later years, he admitted that they would be taken to the boiler-room, tied up and left for a few hours to reflect on their misdemeanours.

and it closes with:

"....a man who regarded it as his duty to brighten everybody’s day, collaring passers-by to whom he was at best a distant memory and regaling them with his jokes and catchphrases, making a beeline for anybody in a wheelchair.

A man who divided opinion without ever appearing to care much what anyone thought of him, he was simply an odd chap. "

You'd think their Dad would have wrung Savile's scrawny neck for that. But perhaps he was too guilt-ridden/compromised by sexually abusing his eldest daughter, Anne, to notice.

Has there been any solid evidence of Savile being anything other than an oddball? Or were any public accusations made while he was alive (as was the case with Cyril Smith)? I ask because "he's a bit odd - must be a nonce" has been the cause of one or two miscarriages of justice in living memory.

The really amusing thing about it is the number of pre-recorded obits for TV news that various talking heads have done over the years, referring directly to Savile's behaviour and expressing their revulsion and disbelief (over him never getting nabbed for it).

This thread is disgusting and ridiculous. Either substantiate your absurd claims or be quiet and respect the dead. You are making yourselves look ignorant and childish.

Savile did more for charity than nearly anyone else in the country and did more good for this country than the people who smear his name would even conceive of. You are small, mean and insignificant. He was a magnificently generous English eccentric. Respect due.

It never seems quite the same when people turn it into a circus and make as much public fuss as possible. There is no law of nature which makes it impossible for someone who puts in work for a charity to still be a wrong 'un.

I am reminded of an episode from The Sopranos where Paulie ensures he donates plenty of money to the church to reduce his time in purgatory for all the murders he has committed. With discounts he reckons 600 years before he gets to heaven. "I could do that standing on my head."

I do. I fucking hate 'charity'.

  • It absolves the state from meeting its responbilities to the vulnerable.

  • The poor contribute disproportionately.

  • Decisions on who and how to help are made through a vile combination of marketing and OPR and donor preference. So, cash is not allocated according to need but according to fashion and promotion.

  • There is insufficient scrutiny of charities compare to statutory agencies.

  • Charity itself is a dodgy term - viz the fucking private schools.

Mindless support of 'charity' is pathetic. It's even worse when it is used to excuse or compensate for dodgy behaviour.

Cavewoman - 31 Oct 2011 10:30:24 (#258 of 17322)

BlankChank - 31 Oct 2011 10:33:37 (#261 of 17322)

Hmmmm....think you are a little off the mark with some of that Col.

It's perfectly possible to support a high level of state provision of essential services while still wanting to make additional contributions to causes about which one has a strong personal link, particularly if that is going to longer term research which may be difficult to justify on a strict cost-benefit basis. Cancer research, for instance.

col2001 - 31 Oct 2011 10:34:51 (#262 of 17322)

And because I am in full-on frothing mode. here's two numbers that make me mad:

Children In Need 201 broadcast fund raising total: £18 million.

In 2011-12 ... Councils are set to cut about £337m of children’s social care services through gross budget reductions of 5 per cent.

A telethon will make people feel better. Actually, political lobbying would achieve a great deal more.

Charity is fine in principle. But.

col2001 - 31 Oct 2011 10:37:05 (#263 of 17322)

Blank - yes, charity can be fine. (I won't debase the discussion by itemising the specific charities I support and the personal reasons why.)

But the kind of charity-fundraising you describe is a small part of the 'charity' narrative.

SlasherBindman - 31 Oct 2011 10:37:58 (#264 of 17322)

Papal Knight Sir Jimmy Savile entertains the nation for decades, is a style pioneer and man ahead of his time, invents the discotheque, lives frugally in the Leeds suburbs, donates 90% of his income to worth causes, works as a hospital porter and selflessly helps the needy. Yet he is pilloried by internet self-soilers and pedlars of mistruths. What a travesty of natural justice.

No it doesn't. The state should help the vulnerable. why blame charities and people if they also want to help. why should I not donate to the red cross or MSF if they are helping flood victims? why should people die just because you hate the word charity?

•The poor contribute disproportionately.

•Decisions on who and how to help are made through a vile combination of marketing and OPR and donor preference. So, cash is not allocated according to need but according to fashion and promotion.

•There is insufficient scrutiny of charities compare to statutory agencies.

maybe, but why attack charities in general and attack good people who want to help others? Is this a reason to let flood victimes die?

•Charity itself is a dodgy term - viz the fucking private schools.

maybe. however you give yourself away here as a heavily chipped person. you don't like private schools so you lump all charities together and say they are evil. do you really not see all the NET overall good that charities do? do you think most people are so stupid that they cannot recognize that contributing to charities helps people out in general?

'People' are indeed too stupid to see that charity is too often cover for state and society not doing what it can and should do.

"La Discotheque" opened in 1941 to play the jazz music that was banned in dance halls: since it could not hire jazz musicians, it was only playing records."

Same here.

The allegations, rather than being based on actual facts or events, seem to be extrapolations based on some of his more creepy mannerisms and comments.

He was certainly odd, but i do wonder if he suffered from something akin to aspergers that made social interaction difficult for him. Hence the completely over the top persona, all the 'now then now then, how's about that then?' affectation covers up the fact that he has no social skills and can't judge how to interact with people. Perhaps some of the off colour comments and odd behaviour are down to him trying to be funny and eccentric but not being able to perceive what is acceptable and what isn't?

Obviously just ill-informed idle speculation on my part, but that's what the internet's for, after all.

It hardly takes a genius to come up with the idea of playing records in a dance hall. The reason that people didn't do it for so long was that the musicians union was so powerful.

Momentary return to dullness - sorry. As just one example, before the Welfare State, healthcare for the poor was dependent on patronage by the rich. The NHS has made a good job of providing healthcare for all, as a state responsibility. I should perhaps modify my endorsement of col's post by saying that the state should provide core services for those who need them, but there'll always be scope for charity as well.

As you were - back to scurrilousness, please.

BasilSeal - 31 Oct 2011 12:31:21 (#296 of 17322)

This is true betty, perhaps it's being unfair to aspergers sufferers.

What i mean is, was it that he had some sort in built problem with social interaction, which accounts for his completely over the top mannerisms and persona? surely the 'now then now then' stuff was an affectation he adopted for some reason? Perhaps he was just painfully shy?

whatever, the speculation about him seems to be based, rather than on actual evidence, on people saying 'look at this inappropriate comment he made, he must be a corpse fucker'. Well, maybe he is, but then again maybe he just said inappropriate things because he lacked the necessary social skills to judge the nuances of what is acceptable and what isn't.

That's just ill-informed idle speculation on my part, but then again it's not different than saying 'he was a bit odd, he must be a nonce.'

WilyCoyote - 01 Nov 2011 17:42:33 (#381 of 17322)

Hello, am home.

Anyway, I showed the link about Sir Jim being in a coffin in Leeds to my colleague, who seemed vaguely upset at the idea of Sir Jim “lying in state”, and then went off on a rant about him for about five minutes and called him a “dirty old fucker.”

In the 80s, my colleague worked for a certain British board game manufacturer, and was responsible for the marketing on their best selling product – a world famous footy-based gamed that involved flicking pieces of plastic about.

However, it was beginning to look a bit tired and video games were becoming more popular, so they wanted to relaunch it to broaden its appeal, particularly to girls.

They brought in a PR company who hit upon the snazzy idea of combining the 40th anniversary of said game with a national campaign involving footballers and celebs going into schools to play kids, particularly girls, at this game. Chief celeb number one was “Jim”, who would visit a number of schools to “fix it” for the girls to be footballers (geddit? It was the 80s………)

The campaign worked brilliantly. There was plenty of press coverage in national and local media, even internationally, and there was even a puff piece on Blue Peter. You possible saw it.

However, after a couple of school visits it became increasingly apparent that “Jim” was an absolute liability when it came to the attention he paid certain young ladies.

The marketing team from the certain British board games manufacturer quickly developed “standing orders” for dealing with “Jim”, namely that:

When on school premises, escort “Jim” everywhere. Particularly during toilet breaks. In case he ends up in the wrong toilet. Again.

Choose girls who look under 13 or over 18 for any up-close stuff. They were apparently “safe”.

Under no circumstance leave “Jim” alone with any female aged from about 14 to 17.

My colleague said there was loads more, but he then had a bit of a wobble about it and wouldn’t say any more.

I shall work on him tomorrow.

That is all.

Even anecdotal evidence that he had a (truly shocking) attraction to fertile young women and lacked the social skills to deal with that appropriately does not excuse the vileness of this thread. It's the same mentality that gleefully smeared Chris Jefferies.

Mr. Savile never married, though in talking of women he often described himself as a Lothario who could never be trapped into staying all night. “Good heavens,” he said in a 2000 BBC television profile, “anything more than two hours — brain damage!”

WilyCoyote - 03 Nov 2011 18:33:29 (#444 of 17322)

Apologies for formatting.

Since Popbitch launched in 2000, we've often been asked which celebrity we'd had most stories about. It's not David Beckham. Nor even Paul Danan. "Jimmy Savile", was always the answer. Among a host of strange rumours is this one, the strangest. It involved Mr Savile, a penchant for necrophilia... and access to the morgue at Leeds General Infirmary which, the story went, he was given in return for his charity work. We've been told this story by probably 100+ people - including two DJs, six journalists and a member of the House of Lords - it was even supposed to be one of Larry Grayson's favourite yarns. But most often it was told to us by a Leeds resident, the Rev Goatboy, late of this parish, who always promised to leave the evidence to support this wild theory with one reliable person, on condition we'd only use it after Savile's death. Sadly, none of us can remember who was supposed to have been the guardian of this evidence. So we have none. We'll have to add this magnificent rumour to the pantheon of apocraphal celebrity stories for now. Unless it's you that has the evidence... (if so:, please)

WilyCoyote - 03 Nov 2011 18:33:42 (#445 of 17322)

Oh, it worked.

The thing about Colleen Nolan must be semi-public knowledge.

I posted on it, because the Nolan sisters themselves (on some BBC1 nostalgia documentary about TOTP in its 70's heyday) were recounting (cheerily, which was even more gobsmacking) how they had to form a human shield round Colleen to stop her being chased round by Savile on set.


Colleen wasn't in that actual interview.

Had no idea about the Auberon Waugh obit though. Tried googling it and not come up with anything.

When Cyril Smith died last year there were fawning tributes from all the papers, and I suppose he's still thought of by most people as a kindly fat eccentric. It took Private Eye and Kevin Maguire in the Mirror to point out there were sworn affadvits that he used to abuse boys in the local care home which Smith never sued for libel over.

Oh ok maybe she was interviewed after all'll+feel+it%3B+FI


"THIS is the moment when a normally mild-mannered Nolan sister almost turned nasty.

Coleen Nolan revealed the horror she felt when she was intimately cuddled by TV presenter Jimmy Savile as a young teenager on Top Of The Pops.

Now aged 43 and a panelist on ITV 1s Loose Women, Coleen says Maureen, Anne, Bernie and Linda - performing as The Nolan Sisters - glowered at the then 53-year old Savile as he held Coleen tightly under her right breast. Footage of the incident was shown on a BBC2 documentary We Are Family, which was broadcast on Saturday, December 6.

Coleen, who had been an audience guest on that 1979 edition of TOTP , a year before joining her family's group, said: "I stood next to Jimmy.

"I was 14, and he was all over me.

"I could see my sisters glaring: 'You touch her and we'll kill you!' "And they would have." "

And an Alfred bar, and right next to that, the infamous "Conny" club, probably the inspiration for that David Bowie song. A suburb of contrasts.

A working men's club, The Conservative Club.

Are there any nice bits of Leeds? I've been to the student area, but where do poshos live - Roundhay, Alwoodley?

In the NE suburbs such as Alwoodley, Shadwell and Roundhay, then slightly further out in commuter belt rustic places like Thorner, Wike, Scarcroft, East Keswick and Harewood. A lot of poshos go further and move to Harrogate or beyond. Savile had a flat on the edge of Roundhay Park.

In the NW of the city, places like Rawdon, Guiseley, Weetwood, Adel and West Park. Possibly bits of Horsforth.

Meanwood has its moments, but is probably too full of students to achieve poshness.

South Leeds can be forgotten about.

Yes, they could. Shame on you, David Cameron.

While some of his antics may have seemed a bit sleazy, somehow you always felt (unlike Gary Glitter, for instance, who always came over as a slimeball), that it was all harmless and perfectly innocent.

All harmless and perfectly innocent.

Late 1960's - my neighbour's in the local bakers with her baby in the pushchair. Jimmy Saville walks in and, while waiting to be served, makes the expected fuss over the baby. Only later on does my neighbour find the five-pound note Saville has tucked into the baby's blanket. I bet you'd find there a lot of stories like this about the man.

My dear parents finding me somewhat tardy in the development stakes sent me to the local school for handicapped children in Brighton from the age of 3 to 6.As a consequence, I was interviewed by the deceased for his Sunday radio show. Happily, I didn't fall into the teen girl category so emerged relatively unscathed, although I recall his breath or body odour was repulsive.Too much charity running I can only presume.

Funnily enough Toil, I once went on a walking tour in Leeds city centre led by this character.

Jimmy Savile. A very strange man.

Can't wait to see the TV bio movie.

Why is it that there are so many strange English entertainers of a certain age who either live with their mothers or have very strange relationships with their mothers?

I wonder who the next generation of them will be?

Or has the strange single man entertainer phenomenon died out along with Jimmy Savile, Frankie Howerd, Bennie Hill, Kenneth Williams and the rest?

BellaFiga - 20 Sep 2012 15:56:43 (#949 of 17322)

I think that a lot of stuff went on in the seventies and perhaps eighties (Bill Wyman and Mandy Smith?) that was highly dodgy, but only very borderline paedy. Mandy Smith looked like a woman but was 13 or 14. Some eyebrows were raised, but Wyman married her when she 18 and sort of legitimised it. I think it really fucked her up though.

There is - or was - a weird liberal seventies hangover attached to sex with youngish women, especially if they were dressing to look older.

Twiggy - back in the sixties - was in a serious relationship with her manager, ten years older, from the age of 15.

I'm not saying it was right, but these things just slipped under the radar.

BellaFiga - 20 Sep 2012 16:47:44 (#956 of 17322)

Something else I thought about while walking home...while the seventies were liberal in some ways, there was also this old-fashioned unspoken feeling of "Well if she's dressed up like that, what did she expect?". So a girl would not get a lot of sympathy if she received unwanted attention (or more) from an older man, if she had gone out - as most of us did - looking a good five years older.

I can remember getting into some very tricky situations at parties when I was 13 - fortunately the guys (who were between about 21 and 30) seemed to have a sense of honour or decency, much to my disgust at the time.

That would be expensive to remake to correct the spelling mistake. Still, it will all come out of the estate.

I see that they can't spell the name either. Just remember: it ends in "vile".

Marvelous little piece by Skynews there. The bit that got most of my attention is at the end:

I often wonder what was the pervy thinking behind those one-eyed monstrosities, and the Lisa Simpson blow job logo.

There's a story in last week's Sunday Post. A woman telling them she first met Jimmy when she was 15 and how she spoke "exclusively about their touching relationship".

Without a hint of irony. She met him when he went to buy a tent for going up Ben Nevis, apparently.

Looks like Justin Lee Collins is heir to the Savile Wrongmo title:

solomongursky - 28 Sep 2012 11:56:18 (#984 of 17322)

A string of women have given shocking accounts of how they were allegedly sexually abused by Jimmy Savile when they were young girls, it was revealed today.

The assaults occurred in public places including hospitals, schools and the BBC studios where the children’s TV presenter recorded his family shows, it is claimed.

The explosive accusations, ranging from rape to indecency, are made by up to 10 women who claim that their lives have been “destroyed and devastated” by the late DJ, knighted in 1990.

According to the allegations in a TV documentary screened next Wednesday, Savile abused girls as young as 13 at the height of his fame.

The ITV programme will feature between five and 10 women claiming he was a sexual predator who took advantage of their vulnerablility.

A source who worked with the investigation team told the Standard the show contains “shocking material that really lifts the lid on the icon” and “goes beyond anybody’s comprehension” of what Savile was capable of.

The flamboyant star, who died aged 84 last October, hosted Clunk Click, his 1970s BBC family show, and Jim’ll Fix It, which ran till the mid-Eighties. He also presented the first edition of Top of the Pops in 1964 and the last in 2006.

Some of those who contributed to the documentary are believed to be former pupils of Duncroft Approved School in Staines, Surrey, where Savile was a regular visitor.

Two claimed that he took them for drives in his car and gave them money, cigarettes, records and places in the Clunk Click studio audience in return for “sexual favours”.

In 2007 Surrey Police received a complaint from a woman who said she was indecently assaulted by Savile at Duncroft in the Seventies.

The allegation was investigated but no further action taken.

The documentary — Exposure: The Other Side Of Jimmy — took 12 months to make and the final edit was being done today.

I remember his 'clunk click every trip' TV public info ads* but not a show of that name.

"Play It Safe".

As for that programme that's coming on, it's been discussed before. ITV plugged it a while ago.

They were never brave enough to show it whilst he was here of course.

I misread this sentence as "The explosive accusations, ranging from rape to indecency, are made up by 10 women..."

halfnelson - 28 Sep 2012 13:59:20 (#988 of 17322)

Clunk Click was a show he did before Fix It. They showed a few clips of it on the tribute show last year.

Play It Safe was a horrible show. There are about 3 episodes of it on YouTube, and it's unremittingly grim and scary even 30 years later.

The really amusing thing about it is the number of pre-recorded obits for TV news that various talking heads have done over the years, referring directly to Savile's behaviour and expressing their revulsion and disbelief (over him never getting nabbed for it). I saw Auberon Waugh's a few years back and it is well worth the wait (assuming it is ever broadcast).

Leftie - 28 Sep 2012 14:15:16 (#990 of 17322)

Oh God this isn't going to end up with the discussion about Jimmy on "Have I Got News For You", which is like the Atlantis of the comedy world.

The HIGNFY thing is a genius bit of writing. I'm surprised I haven't heard of more fake transcripts since as they must be a joy to write.

julietxx - 28 Sep 2012 22:21:18 (#994 of 17322)

There is a photo of Savile with a group of kids at a "care" home in Jersey. He absolutely denied he had been there despite the evidence. His name has been mud among poor shafted care kids for decades.

dottie30 - 28 Sep 2012 22:26:39 (#995 of 17322)

One of the homes was a secure unit.

If this is true it really is disgusting behaviour - similar to Catholic priests in Irish industrial schools. Purposefully choosing the most vulnerable troubled kids - kids who had already been labelled 'bad' and who no-one would believe.

Cavewoman - 28 Sep 2012 23:51:50 (#996 of 17322)

Hence the systematic trawling, by every police force in the country, of adult "care" survivors, following the North Wales care homes abuse scandal. But it was done pretty ham-fistedly, with police offering care survivors financial inducements for revelations of sexual abuse which, damaged as the care survivors were, led to many false allegations and ruined careers of innocent teachers and carers. A nightmare situation, impossible to resolve satisfactorily.

At least he was straight.

One of the allegations in this programme (according to the Mail) is that he had sex with a 16 year old.

And Rantzen is getting in on the story as well.
