How can we ever forget the glory days of It’s a Knockout, when Stuart Hall and his gritty chum Eddie”Up and Under,” Waring were the commentators?
Stuart Hall was the drinking companion of George Best, probably the best footballer the world has ever seen. In all fairness Stuart Hall was excellent at his job, as he was in later life as a Match Commentator.
This makes it all the more painful to see him arrested in his dotage, for allegedly abusing young children, especially so soon after Lord McAlpine was left, uninvestigated, after he too had been implicated, by the Police themselves in paedophile activities. Lord McAlpine, a rich man, received one hundred and eighty-five thousand pounds of licence-payers money, from the BBC, while the child whom was most certainly abused by someone, was left with nothing.
Such is the way the law operates in the UK. Low-level offenders are picked out and used to screen the real problem, most of which takes place in Masonic Lodges and involves the likes of high level politicians whom are never brought to Court and whom are left free to carry on as before, while attempting to change the law to make their obscene behaviour legal.
Lord McAlpine, whom was named as one of a group, whom abused children in the North Wales Paedophile Scandal, has received one hundred and eighty-five thousand pounds in damages from the BBC, in an out of Court settlement, because he claimed that their reference to a name which could be found on-line, was in some way libellous.
We were told that the BBC agreed to pay this sum, in order to avoid litigation. On what grounds would this case be based? The BBC did not name McAlpine, it was the North Wales Police whom named McAlpine, to a youngster whom had been abused.
There has been no sign of the actual photograph, which had been shown to the boy and the name of the person has not been divulged. We have been left to guess as to whether the identity of the suspect in the photo was a relative of McAlpine, whom has been implicated in the sordid affair but whom is now dead, or maybe it is yet another Toff, whom may have been amongst the alleged offenders, whom could possibly sue the BBC in turn. McAlpine is not the only alleged possible offender, whose name may well have been on-line for years. Does McAlpine have proof positive that he was targeted more than others, when the BBC suggested that “a name” could be found on-line?
I get the impression, that the BBC has paid a large sum of Licence Payers money to give the impression that with or without evidence, without any proper enquiry, that a man whom was named by the Police in Wales, is innocent.
Perhaps I need straightening out on the twists and turns in the law of libel. Personally I found it difficult to pin down a direct reference to Lord McAlpine and the abused boy, whom is now a man. It was not until his name appeared in the Press that I became aware that it was he. So why is the BBC paying?
Take a look at a photo of Margaret Thatchers Cabinet and I bet you pick out the same suspicious looking character as I have. No not that one.
An awful lot of people must have thought that Savile would never die.

“We were supplied with copies of court documents…there was an order made for the book of photos to be destroyed.
“So Messham’s photos of alleged abuse…were destroyed?
“They were. Well that’s what’s in court papers – official documents.”
That could have been vital evidence?“It could. Yes.”I
