This thread is losing its way/being bogged down by people with agendas IMO. All getting very personal. Take it elsewhere maybe?

Make a new thread: Jimmy Savile: the bloggers view. And bicker on that.

Indeed. The BBC has deep pockets and I believe they need to draw a line under this after the investigation and that mean they pay up where applicable. The girls were under the care of the BBC while...
