Save our Thread

I agree with what you say in theory but because of the length of the thread now, if it goes into GD there will be many who haven't read any of the links by BB, information and and thoughts and experiences and everything around that and will not do so. The tone of the thread will be overtaken and hijacked and even closed down which would be a waste of information and background to this case and the topic as a whole.

It has become a legendary thread in its own lifetime on Showbiz.
I think it's more likely to get shut down over on GD too. Best left here, IMO.

Something like this might explain how Savile got away with things for so long.
Its just as well there is the IPCC to investigate such things. He definitely seemed to have friends in the police force, his final interview was held in his flat in the presence of a police officer friend of his, according to the biography.

Wasn't it said that he was somehow able to request the interview happen at the hospital, whereas for most people they wouldn't be able to request where it be held?.

I agree, leave it where it is, where i can find it, i check this thread daily and it is stil loosely linked to showbiz. Other celebs have been questioned besides JS

This laundries stories seem full of exaggerations. Anna Raccoon made a good post about it.

This is such an important thread I hope it isn't moved or locked. I've been following it since the Savile story broke and it's very informative and engaging. I just wanted to thank the regular contributors who keep it going, because something like this needs to be talked about and out there in the open.

I just wanted to thank the regular contributors who keep it going, because something like this needs to be talked about and out there in the open.
I wondered if it would continue for long after it got quiet following some arguments last year, if I remember right. I was a bit concerned people might get annoyed with me posting links/posts at one point as I seemed almost the only person still contributing (and I know my posts can be a bit random or asking things no-one can really answer) but thats not the case anymore. I've noticed more recently that people have posted here with usernames I didn't recognise but of course thats fine, everyone is welcome to post (as long as the posts aren't cruel/offensive of course or anything like that)

The view count for this thread is pretty impressive as well - currently its at 113,051 I presume that indicates there are quite a few people who like to lurk and see whats being said without necessarily posting themselves?.

I hadn't seen that before. It seems he said the same thing about his only ambition being waking up the next day and being alive with no worries for many, many years.

He considered honesty the most important thing in a persons character(!).

Did you have a "best" subject?
- Human nature, the law.
etc.

Most of the Pollard documents re Newsnight's botching of the Savile story should be available tomorrow, hopefully online
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...t-8505816.html

"The 3,000 pages of evidence released this morning into the corporation’s mishandling of the Jimmy Savile sex-abuse scandal will reveal a dysfunctional management that contributed to one of the worst crises in the broadcaster’s history."


Pollard's first report
