Knives out for the BBC?
To my mind, the most interesting aspect of the Jimmy Savile affair is whether the knives are out for the BBC, externally and internally. It's difficult to say without being on the inside, but I'm still amazed that all this didn't leak out years ago in one way or another. When one considers how child-centred and sanctimonious we are, that is. Or are we?
Has it come out because Savile is dead and can't sue for libel, or because we live in a more probing (please forgive the word) era?
Or are the knives out for the BBC?
