Why authorities named by Gove must investigate thoroughly the Savile sex abuse allegations

Last Updated: March 28, 2014By

The most important part of this is the hope that anyone in authority approaching people who may have been victims know how to provide proper and adequate support.

    “Commend him for announcing the Savile investigation”…..

    Two things. First, why commend him for announcing the bare minimum of what is required i.e doing his bloody job. Secondly, he can announce as many investigations as he likes but as we are all aware from ‘investigations’ from the past, the real perpetrators rarely get punished- expect another establishment cover up.

    A few nights ago on TV I just happened to see a clip of Jimmy Savile competing in some Marathon/Race somewhere. Even by my standards his running kit was a little weird. Bright gold lame, shorts and vest etc. Okay for a little girl on Coronation Street perhaps, but for an aging TV celebrity? Not really.
    I myself saw it a few times while watching it with my little sister who now turns out to be about 54 years old. At a guess she would have been about 7 or 8 years old at the time and even she implied that he was slightly strange. “And so it came to pass then”. I can only assume that he was that popular and wealthy that the BBC was too frightened to cause ripples amongst their stars and basically hoped it would just go away. The sad thing is that now everyone knows what he was – just one of many employed by the BBC. And it would seem still that the BBC is hoping that they will now all go away. And as soon as possible. Failing that, it will become one of the longest inquiries in history, or until it’s forgotten about. G.
