    those like myself and family who once worked within the establishment are always security vetted some more so then most

    Jimmy Savile would have only been security vetted at a basic level his demeanour would have failed him at a vetting process for a higher office

    many people fail for high office like working for MI5/MI6 or the bank of england and for the most part they wont even know why they failed

    The bbc has far as i know just do standard vetting MI5 etc wonts to know about your friends and family and associates. You have to provide financial information and there will be a check with a credit reference agency. You will also have to provide information relating to your health and lifestyle.

    had Jimmy Savile been vetted by myself for example he would have failed at the first hurdle

    at the end of the day the country is only as good as it’s leader David Cameron nothing more nothing less if you get that wrong you’ll fail if you get it right as a country you’ll succeed

    pretty simple is you ask me

    well even if he somehow escaped the vetting at bbc are they really trying to say that those that gain close proximity to the queen and her family wouldnt have been vetted then..very thoroughly? or are we to believe they let let any old joe public in and have a close friendship with her? well why dont you try it and find out if they let you in and if they check you out.. i think you will no for the first and a very deffinate yes for the second

      the queen has always had security problems Emma the security vetting is only as good as the persons concerned with that procedure carry it out

      a good vetting takes your childhood into consideration mine was safe with being in the cubs and then st Johns and although basic it gives a good insight into a persons real intentions in life in my case for example a safe pair of hands i was always told
