Yeah, I know that, I actuallt have a twitter account but someone does it for me.
I think my point, and you know what I mean, is that for millions of people to be trending the same thing is one thing, but for the wife of the Leader of the House of Commons to come and add her tuppennies worth is just stupid.
If everyone saw McAlpine was trending, why did she insisit on mentioning it herself other than to fan the flames?
She is in a position of responsability and should act accordingly, especially when accusations of child abuse are being thrown about.
Saying that, I don't think anyone here is actualy defending her are they?

A further arrest made, and another of those names which has been drifting around in association with this whole thing. If the McAlpine thing is anything to go on it shows how reliable they are.

Sorry. It's still quite new to me so I find it easier to believe people don't know about it!

Can I just say I still giggle at the title of this thread. "Allegations of Jimmy Savile" makes me think that these people are being arrested under suspicion of Jimmy Savilling.

Which I guess now is true.

I'm no legal expert but can Mcalpine really sue people for mentioning something they had been led to believe was true via another source? A usually reliable source? While I understand how angry he is this litigious rampage seems a bit over-the-top. Saw his smug lawyer on the news earlier; you could practically hear the "chi-ching" in his voice.

Which reliable source gave them a name? Philip Schofield?

Well, it was because of the Newsnight thing, wasn't it? Or am I getting muddled up? There's so much horseshit flying around it's hard to keep up.

Okay, I'm going to be quiet now.

Alright, so his identity was implied, as opposed to 'revealed'. Got it.

But can Twitterers still be sued for coming up with a collective conclusion that they had been somehow 'led' to make?

DLT - groupies?

Tricky, VERY tricky, territory if so.

I also saw that now-dead Lib-Dem mungous Cyril Smith has been accused of abuse, albeit abuse of a slightly different nature.

Anyone see The Daily Show's take on the Savile stuff?

Was funny.

Another now deceased individual who appears to have gotten a free walk with abuse. I remember him being on television a lot when I was younger as a political pundit. And now it appear to have been firmed up that abuse was more than just claimed.

He has now been charged with three counts of indenct assault on children aged 8 to 13 years of age. Although it is important to remember that until found guilty in Court it is just an allegation.
