Are there any UK members that can help us contextualize what's happening in the UK in the fall-out over the Savile revelations?

I'm not in the UK, but have read an article comparing his social significance to Dick Clark. Considering his work with the little ones, however, it occurred to me a more apt comparison might be Fred Rogers.

Given the particularly high esteem in which I hold Fred Rogers (http://www.malesurvivor.org/board/ubbthr...5771#Post405771), I can understand the disillusionment and outrage those in the UK might have over Savile.

From today's NY Times: Police are planning "arrest strategy" for others linked to the Jimmy Savile abuse inquiry.

Think about that. How many suspects do they have if they need a strategy to arrest them all?

Here is the link:
http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/politics-videos...estigation.html

"More than 400 lines of inquiry are being pursued with the number of alleged victims nearing 300. Savile's great-niece has come forward to speak of her experience of abuse."
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20092115


Unfortunately in dysfunctional society as UK's is this could be just tip of the iceberg frown

Here's a UK-based news segment on the issue. Triggering, and surreal in that this is the stuff that's been in the dark corners of the internet for years, but now it's finally coming to light:

Here's another link that claims a connection to a former aide to a former British prime minister.

Is anyone familiar with the 1992 Peter Righton case? Anyway, here's the link. (possible triggers):

How is that name pronounced? Is it "Say-vile"?
