The long awaited BBC report into the Saville affair has concluded that no-one at the BBC was to blame.
The report author had spoken to many BBC employees, trawled through hundreds of emails and watched endless video footage, but could find no evidence at all that anyone had ever spoken to, or indeed seen, Saville at the BBC.
Evidence from the discredited Head of News, who said that she wrote ‘JIMMY SAVILLE IS A PAEDOPHILE’ in foot high letters on a placard and jumped up and down waving it in front of the DG, was discounted. “She is an hysterical woman who has lost her job, what would you expect her to say?” said the report, “besides he was looking the other way at the time.”
In conclusion the report finishes, “We believe that Jimmy Saville must have worked for ITV.”
