Kind of an off side to the Jimmy Savile thread, there are loads of famous pop stars etc out there who where about t the same time....
Who's the next to be Outed??

We have had King and Glitter but there where lots of Personalities about then

Who do you think is coming next?? Remember some people can afford Super Injunctions and may already be known but we can't talk about!

I heard that someone took out aSuper Injunction just over a week go, and is from the. jimmy Savile era

Place your bets!,,,,,,,,

Just about anyone appearing on Top of the Pops. I would imagine in the day that these lassies complaining now weren't complaining then about getting groped by a superstar. :cool

I don't think the super injuction can have been on behalf of Freddie Star though his name has been mentioned because a woman has alleged she was groped by him at a party hosted by Savile back in the 70s.He denied being at the party at first but someone dredged up a photo showing he was indeed present so he has now retrenched taking the position that a photo proves nothing and he'd never touch underage girls.Pretty much what any of us would say put in the same position.

I'll see your Blobby and Raise you Danny.
Can you imagine that? Caught on someones mobile phone whilst on holiday in Thailand,
surrounded by Lady boys clad only in a thong, thoroughly pissed out of his nut sitting in
front of a coffee table piled high with Grade A cocaine taking pot-shots at passing tourists
with a black market AK-47?



(Sort of an "image destroyer" innit?)

Weird and wonderful characters in their private lives though they may be, (Michael Barrymore etc.), it's the trust the nation put in Saville and his attacks on defenceless victims that appaul.

That and the fact nurses did not speak up on behalf of paralysed children at Stoke Manderville.

Be interesting to see what the management structure there at the time have to say about letting him run riot for the sake of the money he brought in.

I'd be very surprised if they make any comment given the current climate.They'll be like the BBC and try and pretend they knew nothing.

It didn't start in the seventies. I know of many instances in the forties and fifties, but in those happy days no one turned a hair. Getting tapped up or groped at work, on the tube, or in any other situation, was par for the course if you were young, (male or female). Most women, now in their seventies/eighties, would have a tale or two to tell about work colleagues with "wandering hands", but they just brushed it aside and got on with life. It was "part of life's rich pattern", so to speak, and they just made sure they steered clear of anyone who was "a bit handy" when possible.
I knew several people who worked at the BBC and in entertainment, and we were warned by our parents not to get into situations where we were likely to be alone with certain "personalities" that lived in our locality.

2BM,I see exactly where your coming from. This topic has been discussed a great deal in our office this week. Now I'm not advocating what he did (or may have done), but those days were very different and a lot of things that were, not necessarily acceptable, but happened quite routinely then, are not acceptable now and rightly so. There was a very pertinent comment on the radio last week along the lines of: "This is an era in which Benny Hill was watched by millions and was seen as very funny, that wouldn't be the case now. With all these allegations coming to light it is almost as if the whole of that era is being put on trial."I have older sisters and often remember them moaning to my parents about dirty old men in the workplace when they first started in jobs, my parents advised to give them a wide berth and if that wasn't possible my Dad would sort them out. That kind of backs up what you're saying that these blokes were seen more as old pervs rather than out and out paedos. Again, I'd just like to stress that I don't make light of it or condone it before them cyberspace lynch mob come for me!!

As a junior seaman on the Llandaff during the 60's I was groped/fondled by one particular old hand A.B. throughout the commision but it was all in 'good fun' only tailing off when I was big enough to take him on. The same bloke would come to the juniors mess and stand at the top of the ladder lowering down nutty bars on a piece of string 'fishing' for juniors and grabbing many of them in the course of his 'fishing' expeditions for further groping and fondling. No wonder the Llandaff was known as 'The Chocolate Box' on previous commisions, can I now sue the Captain at the time for not looking after his juniors who were under age and in his care or MOD?
No you cant. You can have pride in the fact that as you grew up in the mob you first frowned upon, then tut tutted before saying "dont do that around me" before having the balls to say, "that's wrong, **** with that and you **** with me". Someone said it and took that stance, good on them. Hope it was you because that kind of shit wasn't happening in the 80's.
