Following on from yesterday's vow by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe to hunt down alleged serial sex offender Sir Jimmy Savile (see NB passim) and increasing demands that the DJ be disinterred, it is reported that a desperate Savile has now sought asylum from Ecuador.
Police have cordoned off the Ecuadorian embassy in London from torch and farm-implement wielding locals and stationed snipers on adjacent rooftops.
A picture has been tweeted on the internet allegedly from inside the building showing him next to fellow asylum-seeker Julian Assange.
How's about that then...?
Mr Assange, who has been secreted within the embassy for over a hundred days, was apparently unaware of who Savile was, nor had any idea about the current furore, so posed happily for the photograph, believing the errant knight to be seeking sanctuary from persecution by the media and the government.
He tweeted to his followers, 'With @jimllfuckit - some weird old guy who says they've all got it in for him. He doesn't smell too good, that's for sure.' And later on Twitter, he said, 'Not sure about this bloke. He rattles, not just his jewellery. AND the bastard's scoffed all my Ferrero Rochers.'
Theresa May will make a statement later today, as it is believed Mr Assange is ready to negotiate leaving the embassy immediately.
