Ex-BBC homopaedo presenter Chris Denning jailed for 13 years for abusing boys in the 1960s,70s and 80s

Former BBC DJ Chris Denning has been jailed for 13 years for sexually abusing boys in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
Denning - one of the original line-up of Radio 1 DJs in 1967 - was sentenced for 40 offences against 24 boys aged nine to 16.
Judge Alistair McCreath called Denning "utterly depraved" and said he "corrupted" boys at a "critical stage in their development".
The court heard the 73-year-old used his fame to "entice" boys.
This included taking some victims to recordings of Top of the Pops, and in other instances introducing them to celebrities including Jimmy Savile.
One victim recalled being assaulted at Savile's house, while other assaults took place at locations including Denning's home and a computer game shop he owned in Poole, Dorset.
Neil Moore, prosecuting, said: "The defendant used the allure first of the record industry and celebrity, and then the world of computer games to entice boys into his company.
"He spoke to them about his career and the celebrities of the moment he knew."
Denning pleaded guilty to the 38 counts of indecent assault, a charge of gross indecency with a boy and another of indecency with a boy under the age of 14. The crimes were committed between 1967 and 1987.
Passing sentence at London's Southwark Crown Court, the judge told him: "It is not to be forgotten that all of this suffering was inflicted by you without thought for anything other than your own selfish pleasure."
He added: "You gave them alcohol and drugs. To some of them you gave money. You showed them pornographic material.
"You introduced them to inappropriate sexual behaviour by making it seem normal and exciting."
The abuse had a "devastating effect" on the boys - now middle-aged men - the judge added.
Denning wrote to the judge apologising to his victims - but the judge said the "only real mitigation" was the fact he pleaded guilty to the charges.
David Burgess, Denning's lawyer, said: "The years have passed and he in short failed to grasp the enormity of the consequences of his behaviour.
"He's enormously sorry for what he did to these boys then - men now - and that's something he will have to live with."
Baljit Ubhey, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said the extent of the abuse was "truly appalling".
"I hope that his jail sentence will be of some small comfort to his many victims who were brave enough to come forward," she added.
One victim - who visited Denning's home in Winchester in 1978 or 1979 - described it as an "Aladdin's cave" with lots of pornographic magazines. Another recalled a sleepover at the same property when "the lounge was full of boys".
The court heard Denning often recorded his assaults on video or with photographs, and told one victim that another boy who had caused him "trouble" would have compromising photos of himself dropped from a helicopter over his home town.
Denning was arrested in June 2013 under Operation Yewtree, the police investigation into allegations which arose after the sex abuse perpetrated by Jimmy Savile came to light. His arrest was under the strand of the investigation into offences not connected to Savile.
He has previously served prison sentences in the UK, Czech Republic and Slovakia for sexual offences involving young boys.

Why is Children In Need sitting on a £90million fortune? Charity stashes sum away in investment portfolio instead of handing it out
BBC Children in Need has kept £87.7million stashed away in its investment portfolio instead of giving it directly to charity, its latest accounts reveal.
The charity, which has raised more than £600million for youngsters in the UK since 1980, is preparing to launch a fresh appeal to viewers next month.
But some donors may be surprised to discover it does not give the money directly to good causes.
Children in Need has £87,705,000 invested in a range of portfolios, up from £81.2million last year. Another £2.2million is sitting in its bank accounts, up from £864,000 last year.
The accounts reveal it paid £9,000 in fees to fund managers and made £893,000 in investment income.
Its latest charity drive will include a series of celebrity-endorsed fundraising campaigns, and with the profits of a recently released BBC recording of the Beach Boys track God Only Knows, is expected to raise more than £20million.
The money is used to help charities that support disadvantaged and disabled children around the country. Yesterday, the BBC insisted all of the money it raises is given to charity, but said it does not release all of it at once so it is able to measure the impact of its donations and ensure funds are being put to good use.
A spokesman said: ‘This money is not simply cash. It has been allocated to projects working with disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK.
‘In line with standard grant-making practice we do not typically release the full grant upon successful application from projects but rather over a three-year period on a quarterly basis so we can monitor projects to ensure that they continue to comply to the terms and conditions of the grant.’
In 2008 the BBC faced the prospect of an investigation by the Serious Fraud Office after keeping more than £100,000 which should have been given to charity.
The broadcaster admitted staff knowingly withheld money meant for causes including Children in Need and Comic Relief. The scandal emerged after auditors carried out an investigation into the BBC’s phone-voting systems.
The cash was generated by callers voting after phone lines had closed on about 20 shows, believed to include Eurovision and Fame Academy, between October 2005 and September 2007.
They were still charged for their calls, typically around 25p a time, but the cash went into the bank account of BBC Worldwide, the corporation’s commercial arm, rather than the charities.
An internal audit showed that a number of workers in Audiocall, part of BBC Worldwide, repeatedly kept money back. It has now been passed on, with interest. The BBC has said the ‘small number’ of staff involved face disciplinary action.
In 2006 TV viewers were warned against giving money to the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.
An independent watchdog said donating to the charity is ‘a bad idea’ because of its huge administration costs – £2.4million out of a total of £33million raised at the time.
Intelligent Giving said money is swallowed up by the need for two sets of bureaucrats: those who run the charity and those in charge of the organisations to which it gives money.

Anger and unrest at London protest over 'BBC bias' on Gaza VIDEO
BBC pumping out zionist propaganda thanks to being run by zionists like Danny Cohen
Protesters accused the BBC of "anti-Palestinian bias" in its reporting of the Gaza conflict as they staged a demonstration outside the corporation's central London headquarters this evening.
Crowds chanted "BBC, shame on you" by New Broadcasting House near Oxford Circus during a protest organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop and War and the CND.
It came as a proposed ceasefire deal brokered by Egypt collapsed.
Israeli forces resumed bombing just hours after the ceasefire came into effect this morning as the country's eight-day conflict with Hamas saw the Palestinian death toll approach 200.
In a statement posted online ahead of the demonstration, organisers said: "As a publicly funded broadcaster the BBC is duty-bound to provide balanced reporting without bias.
"Once again Gaza is under massive aerial bombardment from Israeli warplanes and drones, and, once again, the BBC’s reporting of these assaults is entirely devoid of context or background."
The protest followed Hamas rejecting the proposed ceasefire deal on the grounds that it was not consulted and its demands had not been met.
In a statement issued by his officer earlier today, Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, said: "Hamas's rejection of the ceasefire gives Israel full legitimacy to expand the operation to protect our people. No country would sit idly by while its civilian population is subjected to terrorist rocket fire. Israel is no exception."
A Met Police spokesman said "appropriate policing measures would be in place" for the protest as several roads in the area were blocked off.
It was unclear how many people were present at the demonstration but footage from the scene suggested several hundred protesters were involved.
A BBC spokesperson said: “BBC News reports widely and extensively across TV, radio and online, on many different aspects of this ongoing and complex conflict. Our role is to explain what is happening and why and we endeavour to reflect a range of voices, amid deeply held views. We are committed to continuing to report and analyse sometimes fast moving events in an accurate, fair and balanced way.”

Bully boy lawyers behind protection network of BBC predatory paedo Rolf Harris
Like Savile, Harris was protected by top global terrorists the law society and its goffers.
The same mob abusing men during divorce and who also control media output to stop their crimes
being exposed while they pick dry the lives of their victims. A top royal arse kisser and why he
was given so much protection.
Rolf Harris’s conviction was jeopardised by his secret arrest and draconian threats to newspapers from lawyers citing the Leveson Inquiry.
The legal bullying meant the Press did not name the paedophile predator until four months after he was first quizzed by detectives.
When the news blackout ended, a flood of other victims went to the police to back up the first woman’s claims.
Prosecutors and child abuse charities say this publicity was vital in proving the case against Harris.
Open justice campaigners say the case shows that suppressing suspects’ names – even after arrest – can help protect criminals.
Detectives interviewed Harris in November 2012 but refused to confirm rumours that they had done so.
But following the Leveson Inquiry, which included a raft of proposals to rein in the freedom of the Press, there have been growing concerns that police and other officials have been able to withhold key information from the public.
In his report, Lord Justice Leveson wrote that except in exceptional circumstances the names of those who are arrested should not be released to the press or the public
His lawyers used the Leveson Report, which recommended anonymity in the event of arrests, to intimidate the press into silence.
But newspapers finally did publish his name the following month and more than a dozen victims came forward, nine of whom testified at his trial.
Prosecutor Sasha Wass QC told the trial this evidence was crucial in proving the case against Harris by demonstrating his ‘persistent pattern of sexual offending’.
The prosecutor’s comments fly in the face of claims by the law firm Harbottle and Lewis, which acted for Harris.
It told one newspaper after he had been interviewed under caution: ‘There is no public interest in publishing such content as is entirely self evident following the publication of the Leveson Report.’
The firm’s senior media lawyer, Gerrard Tyrrell, who has acted for Prince William, Prince Harry and the Middletons, also warned The Mail on Sunday it could face ‘highly damaging’ legal consequences if it published the fact that Harris had been quizzed by detectives.
Liz Mullinar, founder of child abuse charity Heal for Life, said: ‘Not naming suspects in cases like this is a disgrace. It means nobody else can come forward. It is protecting the perpetrators not the victims.’
Philip Davies, a Conservative MP on the Commons culture committee, said: ‘The Rolf Harris case is another prime example of why it is so important to have an open system of justice where people are informed about who’s been arrested or charged.
‘Maintaining any secrecy over arrests or charges only benefits criminals who could use it to get away with their crimes.’
In his report, Lord Justice Leveson wrote: ‘I think that it should be made clear that save in exceptional and clearly identified circumstances (for example, where there may be an immediate risk to the public), the names or identifying details of those who are arrested or suspected of a crime should not be released to the press or the public.’
But the decision of Harris’s lawyers to cite this as proof there was no public interest in naming him after his arrest was condemned from all sides.
The Harbottle and Lewis letter was described in a Times editorial as ‘an ill-disguised threat deployed chiefly to protect a celebrity’s privacy’.
BBC Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile: The day a pair of evil paedo's penned autographs for kids at fete
Two top BBC presenters and royal arse kissers protected by freemason cops
Rolf Harris, found guilty today of 12 sex attacks and facing years in jail, was once shown around Broadmoor hospital by Jimmy Savile as female patients were undressing for bed.
The celebrity paedophiles, who had earlier signed autographs at a fete, leered at vulnerable young inmates.
Alison Pink – who said Savile abused her at Broadmoor– remembered the pair suddenly turning up on a women’s ward just as patients were preparing to strip in the corridor.
The ex-patient, now called Steven George after a sex change, believes the pair were “birds of a feather”.
Steven said: “Harris turned up one evening out of the blue.
He was being shown around by Savile in an understated way. Normally stars only came if they were there for an official performance but Harris didn’t do one.
“It was also unusual because visitors would come at visiting hours, between 10am and 4pm, but they came in as we were getting ready for bed.”
It can now be revealed that Harris’ visit was mentioned in last week’s report on Savile’s abuse of vulnerable victims in the hospital.
While it found no evidence of wrongdoing by Harris, it stated: “We heard convincing accounts of a pattern of inappropriate behaviour surrounding Savile’s attendance on female wards at bath time and bedtime... female patients would be obliged to strip while lined up in corridors.
“We heard that Savile followed a clear pattern of arriving on a female ward at just before this time.”
The report adds: “Unchallenged by staff, he would then watch from behind, as the row of female patients undressed.”
Steven, now 62, first wrote an account of Harris’ Broadmoor visit in his 2012 autobiography “Heartless”.
Alison was sent to the high-security psychiatric hospital as a teenager after she ran away from her adoptive parents and set fire to a property.
Top of the Pops host Savile was a frequent volunteer and was given his own keys and living quarters at the hospital. Alison was on the York ward when the men visited at the height of their fame.
They then headed to the Lancaster ward, where women who were being punished had to strip in the corridor in front of warders.
Steven said: “Harris was very famous at the time and had his weekend show. He walked down the passageway of York ward with Savile opening the doors along with a nursing officer.
“Some of the girls came out and there was an unprompted performance of Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport. He then went through to the punishment ward.
"At that time of the evening all the girls on that ward would have been undressed ready for bed.
"We all had to get completely undressed in the hallway in front of the staff, male and female, to show nothing was being taken into our rooms.
“I thought it was odd that he was walking through the female wards and not doing a show. It was strange that he arrived at the same time the women were undressing for bed.”
Steven said Alison was 17 when Savile molested her by putting his hands up her dress as she watched TV with patients on Lancaster ward.
Today the Mirror is publishing exclusive shots of Harris and Savile as they signed autographs at a fete in July 1973.
The photos were taken by Neil Taylor, 63, now a kitemaker living in Harris’ hometown of Perth, Australia.
He said: “He has been a bit of a hero to me all my life, so the recent revelations came as a real shock.
“I lived close to Broadmoor at the time and we would visit all the summer fetes.
“They were huge entertainers of that era, so I stopped to get a picture of them both. It didn’t cross my mind that they had anything to do with the hospital.”
The Bracknell Times ran a report on the event with the headline “star-studded Broadmoor fete raises £800”.
It said: “Jimmy spends an enormous amount of time at the hospital and is a regular visitor to the annual fete.
“The fete’s other celebrity, Rolf Harris, who did not arrive until later in the afternoon, proved a big hit, too.”

BBC A cesspit of depravity
Leonard Rossiter: 10 BBC workers quizzed over 'sex assault' claims involving Rising Damp star
Rising Damp star Leonard Rossiter, who died in 1984, is alleged to have performed a sex act while three BBC employees tried to rape an 18 year old man
Police are getting ready to quiz 10 BBC workers over sex assault claims involving TV legend Leonard Rossiter.
Detectives had already been investigating an accusation that Reggie Perrin star Rossiter, who died in 1984 aged 57, performed a sex act as three BBC employees tried to rape a male TV extra.
But the Sunday Mirror has been told a second alleged victim has now been identified – shedding new light on the probe which started in 2012.
The latest alleged victim – also a TV extra – is believed to have fled the same set of controversial play The Year Of The Sex Olympics on a separate occasion in 1968, sobbing: “It’s like a f****** orgy in there – I didn’t come here to get f*****.”
It is understood Operation Yewtree cops found the actress after the first TV extra, who claims he was 18 when he was sexually assaulted twice by three men – once as Rossiter watched and performed the act – stepped forward to give a statement.
Following a lengthy probe, investigators will now question a further 10 people, all believed to be at BBC HQ during the four-day filming session, where both accusers acted alongside the star of Rising Damp. It is understood that arrests are being considered.
The first accuser, who described the BBC set as “a cesspit of depravity”, told how his fellow cast member confided in him when he found her in a distressed state in the West London studios just days after the alleged attacks on him.
He said: “She looked really upset and I asked her what was wrong. She said, ‘It’s like a f****** orgy in there – I didn’t come here to get f*****’.
“She had clearly witnessed something bad. She said she was going to do something about it. She did not go into details about what had happened to her.
“She was crying and had obviously been very disturbed by what had happened.
“I told her she wasn’t alone and that I had been attacked by Rossiter and his colleagues too.”
He said he was so disgusted by the attacks he went to a senior BBC worker to complain.
He said of the actress: “She was even more distressed than I was and we went to see someone senior at the Beeb to tell him what had happened.
“I remember them saying, ‘If you pursue this you will never work for the BBC again.’
“It was disgusting but we were both young and feared for our careers. The woman was too distressed to continue that day, so filming was cut short.”
The actor, now 66, first told Jimmy Savile cops in October 2012 how Rossiter had watched “with glee” as three BBC men tried to rape him during the second of two attacks.
He had kept his contract from the time and handed it over to police, allowing detectives to trace the second alleged victim and other cast members.
The disturbed man described how twice-wed Rossiter performed a sex act beside him during the sexual assault.
He claimed he had returned to the set two days later to continue filming because he feared he would ruin his career if he quit.
But on returning to London’s Television Centre, he encountered the young actress in tears and they confided in one another.
He claimed: “In the rehearsal room, one BBC man tightly held my wrists while two others were behind me trying to rape me. I was the victim of two assaults.
"The second time they obviously tipped off Leonard Rossiter because while I was struggling and shouting for help he was in the room.
“He obviously found it all a big turn-on. He was watching with glee. The staff who attacked me were animals and thought they could get away with anything.”
Of the actress, he said: “We confided in one another and I knew it wasn’t just me – it was the culture of the place.” Both alleged victims had been ordered to strip off and were smothered in gold paint for The Year Of The Sex Olympics.
Rossiter played the part of the co-ordinator of judges presiding over couples having sex.
The controversial play was broadcast on BBC2. Rossiter’s accuser called police after being appalled by stories of sexual abuse within the BBC which have emerged amid the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.
He said: “It is important people know what a cesspit of depravity it was at the BBC. Staff at the Television Centre assumed they could get away with anything. It’s time these people face justice.”
He now hopes the new line of inquiry will lead to arrests.
A BBC spokesman said: “Any allegations of criminality are a matter for the police, and the BBC is not able to comment."
The Operation Yewtree investigation into sex abuse allegations began after telly star Jimmy Savile died in 2011.
By late 2012 the number of alleged victims totalled 589, of whom 450 alleged abuse by Savile.
Most recently Gary Glitter was charged with eight offences. He is awaiting trial. DJ Paul Gambaccini is still on bail. Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning is charged with 41 offences. He is awaiting trial. All deny the charges.
TV legend Rolf Harris is currently on trial over sex abuse allegations, which he denies.
Comic Jimmy Tarbuck spent nearly a year on bail before being told he would not face charges, and Jim Davidson and Freddie Starr were also told they face no further action.
Former Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis was cleared of 12 attacks but still faces trial on three counts.
PR guru Max Clifford was jailed for eight years for indecent assaults. Stuart Hall is in jail for assaulting young girls.

BBC hierarchy ignored homopaedo attacks at television centre
Victims Jason Little and Lee Sullivan
A child sex victim of a driver who chauffeured BBC stars has told detectives he was abused by a paedophile ring linked to the pervert.
Jason Little, 42, said he was assaulted in the world famous Television Centre by David Smith during a number of visits with the convicted abuser.
Jason said Smith got him a BBC pass and introduced him to scores of stars, including fellow paedophile Jimmy Savile.
A coroner ruled yesterday that Smith, 67, took a fatal overdose after becoming the first person to be charged as part of Operation Yewtree – the investigation sparked by the Savile scandal.
Jason and his childhood pal Lee Sullivan, 41 – also abused by Smith – have chosen to become the first victims to waive their anonymity in an effort to give hope to others.
Both accused the BBC of covering up Smith’s abuse after the corporation refused to admit he ever worked for them.
Jason said: “It makes me sick that the BBC won’t admit it. They haven’t even bothered to speak to me about Smith.”
Lee added: “He has cheated me of justice by killing himself.”
They spoke out as solicitor Liz Dux revealed two of Savile’s alleged victims have come forward to say they were abused by other men
One was a former BBC cameraman, who has now died. The other attack is alleged to have happened at the TV Centre in West London.
The BBC last night denied Smith ever worked for them and admitted they are no longer investigating his links to the BBC, despite never having spoken to Jason or Lee.
Smith, described in court last October as a former BBC driver, admitted abusing Jason and another boy at the Old Bailey in 2001 and was jailed for six years.
The Mirror can reveal that by then he had served seven years for attacks on nine different boys that led to separate convictions in 1968, 1972, 1975, 1978 and 1989. Lee and Jason were 12 when Smith began the assaults them after meeting the pair at Tooting Bec lido in South London in 1984.
BBC homopaedo David Smith
Speaking at his home in Ramsgate, Kent, Jason said: “He took me to parties with other men and kids. We were given drugs so they could attack us.
“Smith also took me to a big house outside Amsterdam where I was abused with other children. At the time I didn’t know what was happening to me.”
Smith used his BBC connections to groom children and even had a white Ford Granada with the number plate “372BBC”. Jason said he took him to the set of Saturday Superstore and Top of the Pops.
He said: “I remember seeing Savile on quite a few occasions. Smith knew him and I saw them talking together.”
Both men have struggled with alcohol and drug addiction, and are now getting professional help to heal their mental scars.
Jason said: “I have decided to speak out because I know there are kids going through similar things today and I want them to know they are not alone and that there is help out there.
Adulthood has been an existence, not a life, because of what that man has done to me.”
Lee added: “I want to thank the Operation Yewtree detectives Hannah Rose and Mike Wallace for their great work.”
Southwark coroner’s court heard yesterday how Smith was found dead at his home on October 28 after failing to turn up for the start of his trial, accused of raping and molesting Lee in 1984.
A note found by his body read: “Do not resuscitate. If still alive allow me to die in peace.”
Senior Coroner Andrew Harris said that it was “beyond reasonable doubt” that Smith intended to take his own life.

Noel Edmonds says he is ready to buy the BBC to save it from ‘disaster’
TV presenter Noel Edmonds is preparing to buy the BBC with the backing of a group of wealthy investors to save it from ‘inevitable disaster’, he claimed yesterday.
The former BBC star – who now hosts Deal or No Deal on Channel 4 – said renewing the corporation’s current licence fee agreement would be ‘as futile as giving medicine to a corpse.’
Instead, he wants to turn it into a not-for-profit broadcaster run along commercial lines and slim down its ‘bloated’ bureaucracy.
The 65-year-old said he has assembled a group of rich backers under the name Project Reith, after the corporation’s first director general Lord Reith.
He insisted they ‘could and would pay’ the market price of the BBC, as calculated by a team of advisers and former BBC executives.
He said that finding the money to buy the corporation would not be a problem.’
Writing in The Sunday Times, Mr Edmonds said that he had meetings with business people across the globe and they all believed that a business model could be found to save the BBC.
He said: ‘Believe me, these people can make it happen. If ailing British companies such as Rolls-Royce, Land Rover, British Airways and Cadbury can be turned around, there is still hope for the BBC.’
Mr Edmonds first found fame on BBC Radio 1 before hosting TV shows including Top Of The Pops and Noel's Hose Party.
But he quit in 1999, publicly criticising the corporation’s management culture. In the past, he has refused to pay the licence fee in protest at the ‘threatening’ way in which it is collected.
Yesterday, the star claimed the BBC could face a mass ‘licence fee revolt’ and could collapse if just five per cent of households refused to pay the £145.50 annual charge.
He said that he believes people 'deserve better' than the current organisation.
'BBC management has pursued an expansionist strategy that defies logic and the founding laws of commerce,' he said.
He blasted the organisation for purchasing new buildings rather than focusing on quality television.
My Edmonds declined to say how much it would cost to buy out the BBC, although experts have said its commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, is worth about £2billion alone.
A BBC spokesman said: ‘Long-term polling shows that the licence fee is the funding method with single most backing and it’s been rising.
‘Support for the licence fee is at 53% - way ahead of subscription and advertising. It’s the top choice for funding the BBC across all ages, classes and whether you are in a Freeview, Virgin or Sky household.’

Savile - Operation Yewtree – the biggest Police cover-up since Hillsborough
Crime and Parliamentary Affairs correspondent TIM HICKS follows up on the incredible revelations of misconduct in North Yorkshire Police revealed by the BBC Inside Out programme.
“That particularly dubious Constabulary that merits careful consideration”
[Lord Maginnis of Drumglass, commenting on North Yorkshire Police, following his involvement in the case of Mrs Barbara Hofschröer].
Jimmy Savile’s principal residence was in Leeds and he travelled regularly to Scarborough from 1960 onwards to visit his mother and to stay with her. He continued his close association with Scarborough after her death, staying there regularly in his flat at the Esplanade. It follows from this that the full and meticulous investigation of his activities in Leeds and Scarborough are of critical interest to Operation Yewtree, the Home Office, HM Inspector of Constabulary and the IPCC in determining why it was that he was able to offend for so long, without being arrested by the Police.
Yet the West Yorkshire Police investigation into Savile, called Operation Newgreen, has been widely condemned as a farce. Alan Collins, a solicitor representing 40 of Savile’s victims, is quoted in the press as having told ITV’s Daybreak programme:
“The report begs a lot more questions. It provides some answers but the report reveals memories that are not as sharp as perhaps they ought to be, ‘can’t remember’, documents that can’t seem to be located. It doesn’t add up. But my take is that there seems to be a collective myopia and the collective myopia is evidenced by Savile. He was able to run rings around the police for decades. He used police officers. He was ingrained with them, dovetailed with them.”
Unusually, Chief Constable Nick Gargan of Avon and Somerset has broken ranks and also criticised West Yorkshire Police over its handling of its Savile enquiry. He is quoted in the Yorkshire Post as saying:
“It seems clear to me that Operation Newgreen does not have the look and feel of an independent report. As I turned from one page to the next, I saw example after example of the author putting the case for West Yorkshire Police. At times this case was put with some force and emotion and more than a hint of exasperation with other bodies. In that respect, Operation Newgreen was unsuccessful if it was its intention to give an impression of independent assurance: it may even have had the effect of strengthening suspicion that West Yorkshire Police was at the very least being defensive.”
Mr Gargan suggested the force carry out a “very open and public examination of its actions” and a public engagement strategy to deal with issues raised by the review. He said:
“I think you will benefit from a situation in which your staff respond to criticism with the questions ‘maybe this person has a point’ more readily than ‘how do I prove them wrong?’.
North Yorkshire Police deny all knowledge
The initial response of North Yorkshire Police was to deny all knowledge, despite the fact that Savile had been mentioned in the press and on the BBC regularly as living in Scarborough and was well known there as a Freeman of the Borough. A force spokesman commented in 2012:
“When the allegations surrounding Jimmy Savile were publicised, we carried out extensive searches of force records which did not reveal a local connection”.
Given that North Yorkshire Police nevertheless provided Savile with a police car and driver to take him to a community event for young people it had organised in Selby in 2008, where Savile shared the platform with the Chief Constable, this was clearly a lie.
On the 27th of April 2013 following confirmation from the Detective at Operation Yewtree who liaised with Real Whitby, that all the information gathered by the Metropolitan Police as part of Operation Yewtree would be passed on to North Yorkshire Police, who would conduct the investigation from then on, I wrote to Operation Yewtree stating (prophetically) that:
“A central issue of the Scarborough aspect of Operation Yewtree is that there are consistent allegations of corruption within North Yorkshire Police in respect of their response to Jaconelli and Savile. I am satisfied that North Yorkshire Police will not investigate the allegations concerning Savile, Jaconeli and the response of Scarborough Police impartially and that referring the investigation to North Yorkshire Police means that the integrity of this aspect of Operation Yewtree has been completely compromised.”
Our analysis of the North Yorkshire Police investigation by Deputy Chief Constable Cross showed that it is also another whitewash.
Enter the BBC
The following revelations were made in the BBC Inside Out documentary aired on Monday the 10th of February 2014 at 7.30 pm:
Archive BBC film was shown proving that Jaconelli was an associate of Savile, practised judo with Savile, filmed in Scarborough for the BBC.
Multiple witnesses alleged that complaints had been made to North Yorkshire Police about Peter Jaconelli in his lifetime, alleging that he was a paedophile.
It was alleged that North Yorkshire Police had admitted at the time it was completely aware of the allegations about Jaconelli, that there had been other complainants, but Peter Jaconelli was not arrested because of his status as a Councillor and Mayor.
It was further alleged that a statement had been taken as part of a formal criminal complaint.
It was also alleged that it was common knowledge throughout Scarborough that Peter Jaconelli was a paedophile.
It emerged that North Yorkshire Police Operation Yewtree investigation had not bothered to interview any of the witnesses developed by Real Whitby.
This has some profound implications for Operation Yewtree.
Peter Jaconelli was a close associate of Savile and therefore falls within Strand 2 of Operation Yewtree. Although he is unquestionably Britain’s longest offending and most successful paedophile ever, probably having committed thousands of offences in Scarborough over fifty two years, he is not mentioned anywhere in Operation Yewtree. Yet the BBC programme showed there was ample evidence of his offending being known to the Police.
A follow up article in Real Whitby alleged that Officers had deleted and withheld intelligence on Savile and his associates and that there had been other examples of misuse of police intelligence in connection with other cases in North and West Yorkshire Police. These concerns now stand vindicated:
The BBC quoted a victim confirming that he had made a complaint and given a statement to Police about Jaconelli. Yet this information has miraculously disappeared from Police intelligence.
It was alleged, on Inside Out, that other complaints had been made to the Police. Yet this information has also miraculously disappeared from Police intelligence.
Every schoolboy and most parents in Scarborough knew of Jaconelli’s offending and yet we are asked to believe that he was completely unknown to Police and does not appear anywhere in any Police note-book or intelligence system.
In 2003 North Yorkshire Police conducted a major paedophile investigation in Scarborough which generated so much intelligence it had to be managed through HOLMES (Home Office Large Major Intelligence System). According to local and national newspaper reports , Savile, Jaconelli and Corrigan featured in this investigation as suspects. The intelligence generated in this major operation has also miraculously disappeared.
As part of its Operation Yewtree investigation, North Yorkshire Police should have interviewed the witnesses identified by Real Whitby, entered their evidence into HOLMES and then tasked a specialist sexual offences intelligence detective to compare it to the original intelligence that had been gathered during the 2003 investigation to see what additional evidence this produced. It appears that no criminal record check was conducted. A cold case review may also have resolved any outstanding offences. However, Deputy Chief Constable Cross did none of these things, effectively ensuring that intelligence on Savile, Corrigan and Jaconelli which could have been developed was withheld through inaction.
Deputy Chief Constable Cross is a most capable and formidable detective, with extensive CID training recently retired after a distinguished career. She is widely admired in the British Police Service for her textbook investigation of the murder of Jenny Nicholl and her contribution to the development of forensic linguistics. So what possible explanation can there be for her inexplicable omission of Peter Jaconelli from her report, the effect of which is to airbrush Peter Jaconelli and Jimmy Savile out of North Yorkshire Police history?
Why has Peter Jaconelli disappeared into the Operation Yewtree black hole?
The two critical failures of the British Police Service to arrest Savile both occurred in North Yorkshire. They are:
1. The failure of North Yorkshire Police to arrest Jaconelli and Corrigan, which would surely have led them to Savile, (Britain’s most prolific paedophile and rapist).
2. When asked for intelligence on Savile by Surrey Police in 2007, North Yorkshire Police Force Intelligence Bureau replied that it had none, although Jaconelli and Corrigan are alleged to have featured in a 2003 paedophile investigation conducted by North Yorkshire Police and entered into HOLMES. As a result, Surrey and Sussex Police did not have the intelligence from North Yorkshire necessary to assist in its investigation – and the best opportunity of bringing him to justice was lost.
It is widely alleged that North Yorkshire Police knew all about Jaconelli and that Police Officers covered up for him and allowed him to carry on offending, because he was a prominent local Councillo,r businessman and Mayor. So if Deputy Chief Constable Cross were to admit that Jaconelli had been a paedophile, this would raise all sorts of questions as to why the Police had not arrested him. Clearly this would be a huge embarrassment to North Yorkshire Police.
Deputy Chief Constable Cross of the North Yorkshire Police started her career in Leeds with West Yorkshire Police, the two forces that Savile was most closely associated with – and which have suffered severe criticism over their collective failure to arrest him. Neither force has confirmed if Cross knew Savile there.
Chartered Accountants and indeed all investigators are taught that when conducting investigations they should develop as much evidence as possible, then consider all the evidence before coming to a conclusion. However, this did not trouble Deputy Chief Constable Cross. She simply ignored the witness evidence provided by Real Whitby, wrongly stated that Jaconelli and Savile did not feature in any North Yorkshire Police intelligence, and used this as an excuse to exonerate North Yorkshire Police from any criticism. In short, she appears to have conducted a cover up to save the face of North Yorkshire Police - which if true, is a corrupt act.
These are the same evil bastards that smear men using feminist domestic violence promotion while they themselves
hound the public into an early grave with their thugs, ENFORCERS, predatory paedo's and junkies. Time to end this mass

BBC pays out £100,000 compensation to people 'bullied' by TV licence collectors: Corporation has made 500 'goodwill payments' over past five years
The BBC has admitted handing out more than £100,000 in compensation to innocent people hounded by 'aggressive' TV Licensing officers.
Over the past five years it has made almost 2,500 'goodwill payments' to householders who were wrongly threatened with prosecution, bombarded with leaflets and taken to court.
They included a grieving son who was given £250 for the stress caused when the BBC repeatedly ordered him to buy a licence for his dead mother.
Peter Troy, of County Durham, was threatened with a £1,000 fine unless he paid the fee, despite the fact his mother had died six months earlier and her house was empty.
He repeatedly explained the situation to officers from Capita – the firm with a £560million contract to collect the fee for the BBC's TV Licensing – but received an apology only when he threatened to sue.
Another viewer was eventually given £100 after reporting TV Licensing officers who repeatedly turned up on his doorstep threatening legal action, even though he did not own a TV.
He said: 'I even considered buying a TV licence in my panic … because I was so worried about the whole situation.
'I was shaken up by the brazen way in which an organisation could ignore legal restrictions to literally bully people in their own homes. This is clearly harassment … to force people into buying licences they do not need, simply to increase revenue.'
The revelation – uncovered by a Freedom of Information request – comes amid growing anger at the heavy-handed way in which the £145.50 fee is collected.
Last night Jonathan Isaby, of the TaxPayers' Alliance said: 'It's bad enough that Auntie has squandered cash on various digital debacles without then wasting money on chasing people who have already paid for the broadcaster's profligacy.'
TV Licensing prosecutions are clogging up the courts, with the BBC accounting for one in ten cases brought before magistrates. More than 180,000 people were prosecuted for non-payment in 2012.
Last year, the Daily Mail revealed the corporation's army of 334 'enforcement officers' – who have no legal right of entry to homes – are paid a bonus every time they gather evidence leading to a successful prosecution.
Critics say it means they have a strong incentive to harass those they suspect of not paying.
A TV Licensing spokesman said: 'Sometimes we get it wrong and work hard to put things right.'
The very warped agenda of the man hating BBC (but ONLY heterosexual men) VIDEO
The hypocritical BBC fail to realise they themselves create HATE propaganda every day accusing
heterosexual men of abuse of ex-wives and children while they also support a murdering tory government
smearing the poorest sections of society that are being psychologically tortured by the
tory assassins ATOS and DWP. Meanwhile protecting BBC predatory paedo's like Jimmy Savile and his
band of perverted BBC gangsters. They have NO MORAL RIGHT to preach about protecting any sections of
society especially the deviants they bend over backwards to protect.
