Jimmy Savile: BBC director general rules out inquiry

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by velcrostripes, Oct 6, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've heard they're using the back seat of his Rolls Royce to train new valeters in the noble art of leather sanitation.
     
  2. I wonder if it will go to Leveson. Judging by the stuff that's being reported, it might just be a disaster for the BBC were they to hold an Inquiry about an alleged "culture of abuse" in an institution which, if any of this stuff is true, seems to have been bullet proof. Was it just the BBC? Accusations of shitty, seedy goings on over decades, as claimed by not a few women connected to broadcasting over the last thirty years. Blokey banter and messing about is one thing, paedophiles or seedy old blokes groping women just doesn't sit well. It's just wrong. If these people now being accused were nobodies living in the community, well you can guess what would happen. We might like not them all the time but those well known faces kicking up a fuss at the moment, have a point and should really get their Inquiry.
     
  3. Any inquiry should also include the likes of Esther Rantzen, who seems to know a lot more than she's let on so far. It shouldn't be allowed a cover up of any sort especially as it appears that at least one 15 year old girl may have committed suicide over it with the police at the time dismissing the diary she left as fanciful.
     
  4. Blimey, more old celebrities' names cropping up in this thread than an episode of Strictly Come Dancing!
     


  5. I suspect a lot of former BBC higher ups will be shitting bricks...

  7. It will be interesting to see how the Saville/Glitter link plays out. Seems the two of them were well known for their shared hobby within the BBC, and add in Savilles routine defence if Glitter.

  9. Anybody who knew what SaVILE was up to, should face some form of punishment.
     
  10. Similar words used by many of the victims I think
     
  11. This has the potential to be extremely damageing to the BBC, they have so far managed to portray themselves as whiter than white in the Levonson inquiry. Even though they were forced to admit using PI's in some of their work this point was not pressed to it's obvious conclusion that the BBC could not be certain their contractors had not used illegal means to aquire information, instead the focus has been entirely on the print media. If there is any truth to the allegations of a cover up, over several decades, of a pedophilia ring operating within the BBC it would destroy their reputation for being trustworthy and impartial for ever.

    The whole thuinbg is clearly a police matter but there is also identifaction and explanation needed of reprorts to police being idelined and why and BY WHOM.

    It is a great pity that Jim Callaghan's 'reforms' whichb did away with the distinction between Felony and Misdemeanour also did away with the old common law offence of Misprision of Felony, whereby anyone having knowledge of a felony, and failing to report it, became complicit in that crime and a criminal themselves.
