The Jimmy Savile myth unravels over a ton of claims of sexual abuse. Apparently we all knew about it whereas in fact most of us merely suspected he was a 'weirdo' because he behaved oddly, idolised his mother, wore tracksuits and red-tinted shades.
Rumours of Savile necrophilia in a hospital mortuary lost nothing in the repeating.
Now, the respected Oxford Astrologer starts her latest blog post with these words: 'A while ago I met someone who had been molested by the late kid's TV host Jimmy Savile back in the 1970s. I won't disgust you with the details; he was a little boy at the time and Savile a middle-aged man.'
The sooner we know the full details the better. Let's put aside the appalled face-pulling and other huff-puff shock-horrors and get down to the nitty-gritty. The man who spoke to the Oxford Astrologer should go straight to the police, if he has not already, and make his complaint. Better too late than not at all.
We need to know all the facts for a better understanding of Savile. He was not unique.
