I find the title of this thread rather inappropriate, in the light of all that has happened since the original posting. Would it be possible to change it to something less celebratory?


I also agree with you Dalehelms, however there was some controversy over teh renaming of the thread as some people were of the mind that JS was not around to defend himself and therefore stand trial to be found guilty or not.

But this report really does question whether we should now retain the thread title,a nd i dont think we should.

I am going to suggest that we simply call it Jimmy Savile.

Any thoughts?

Not long before the whole Savile scandal blew up there was a very creepy wax work dummy of him for sale on Ebay.It had been on display in a cafe in Scarborough. I was prepared to go up to 50 quid to get it to play a prank on someone but it went for £150! I wonder what the sucessful bidder has done with it now? I bet it went on a bonfire!

Would have been good for Halloween, put it in the window and the Trick or Treaters would have stayed away.

Hi cnosni. By coincidence, I too thought that Jimmy Savile would be a more appropriate title. It will be interesting to see if other members have views on the subject and what their posts might be.

Yeah, we will give it tonight to see what people think, if no reasoned alternative is brought forward,a nd others agree ten we can change it.

Its a subject that needs to be "aired" but i cant see how anyone can now even defend him even if there is a suspiscion that some of the claimants may be bogus.
