CODSWALLOP OR COVER UP
These pages recently commented that, despite the seemingly overwhelming number of claims against the late Jimmy Savile of sex crimes, no evidence has been tested in court. That remains the case
However, something this writer didn't know at that time was that Savile not only admitted in his biography written many years ago that he would have illegal sex given the chance, but incriminated the West Yorkshire police in such illegal activity
This has come to light following an internal enquiry by the Constabulary which has found that, despite a very close relationship between Savile and quite a number of police officers, there was no impropriety and no reason for the police to be suspicious of him
This despite the fact that senior officers met him socially at his home on a virtually weekly basis and that - in his biography - he said that, when one day there was talk about a runaway teenage girl, he had said that if he found her before they did, he would keep her at home for a night by way of a "reward"
He went on to comment in his book that, if his friends in the force were to take any action against him, half of them would go down with him!
Now, whilst all this is still not proven evidence against Savile, it raises one hell of a question mark over West Yorkshire police, who do not have the best of reputations
Either Saville was a pervert and they knew it and their enquiry results are a load of codswallop at best, or the officers who carried out the enquiry are totally incompetent
Surely another force should carry out a fresh enquiry into their activities. Why, on a topic of such nationwide importance, have they been allowed to hold their own enquiry into themselves?
