If you've been following the unfolding Jimmy Savile story obsessively like I have been, then you know that the police have gone silent, even more than usual. Two men have been questioned by police, and their identities have not been released.

Additionally, the police announced that Operation Yewtree, which was the investigation into Jimmy Savile, has concluded, while a new investigation called Operation Fairbank has begun to look into allegations of an elite pedo ring operating within the UK.

If you want good primary sources to watch, check out this blog:

And the Twitter feed of Mark Williams-Thomas, the former police detective and British TV presenter, who has been instrumental in breaking the Savile story:

Two new developments:

According to the Mirror (so consider the source), the Yewtree investigation is looking into a "world famous pop star," "a film director," and 23 others:

Meanwhile, Freddie Starr and Max Clifford have been "rebailed," whatever that means:

The first MSM report on new (potentially explosive) allegations, from The Independent. Be careful of triggers here:

Comedian Jimmy Tarbuck has been arrested in connection with a historic child sex abuse allegation, according to sources.

Tarbuck, 73, was questioned by North Yorkshire police on 26 April in relation to an incident that allegedly occurred in the late 1970s in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, when the victim was a young boy.
The arrest was made following information passed by Metropolitan police officers working on Operation Yewtree to North Yorkshire police.

The truth is, that the police have been covering up abuse for many decades.
They are not 'New' allegations, but were reported many years ago.
In most cases they said there was insufficient evidence to prosecute.

This is only scratching the tip of the iceberg.
It makes me wonder whether the police have covered up allegations, by telling the complainant, "nothing ever happened"!

If only they knew? What their denial did. I guess, one day they will.
