Thatcher lobbied for Savile knighthood despite warnings

Margaret Thatcher made repeated attempts to win a knighthood for Jimmy Savile  despite warnings about his ‘manner of life’.

Savile said getting knighthood was ‘a relief because it got me off the hook‘  … folder contained a handwritten letter from Angus Ogilvy

“The folder encloses the letter from the Prime Minister offering him a knighthood, the envelope it came in, some bumf about keeping it secret till the proper date and then – proudest of all – telegrams from Charles and Diana, from Prince Philip, a handwritten letter from Angus Ogilvy and a very sweet homemade card with a stuck-on snapshot of Princess Bea, from the Duchess of York.

Lady Thatcher’s FIVE attempts to secure knighthood for Jimmy Savile while her aides warned of his ‘strange and complex’ life

  • Tory PM first asked he be made ‘Sir’ Jimmy in 1984, secret documents show
  • Civil servants warned her off because of his boasts about his ‘lurid’ sex life
  • He was finally knighted in 1990, Lady Thatcher’s final year in office

Previously unseen documents from the Cabinet Office reveal the extent of unease about the BBC presenter, almost three decades before he was finally unmasked as a predatory paedophile.

Mrs Thatcher eventually succeeded in her quest and the DJ and Jim’ll Fix It presenter was made Sir Jimmy Savile in 1990, a month after she left Downing Street.

Previous government correspondence has revealed that Savile wrote to Mrs Thatcher in 1980 and she invited him to lunch at Chequers.

She subsequently spent 11 consecutive New Year’s Eves with him and oversaw his eventual knighthood in 1990.

‘The last time Jimmy was seen going through the gates of Downing Street he was dressed for the occasion. He was dressed in running shoes and puffing away on a cigar. He has quite the most distinctive approach to fitness training, some might even say it was a little eccentric, but then so many great Britons have had a touch of eccentricity about them and Jimmy is at Leeds General Infirmary, Stoke Mandeville and Broadmoor, to name only three institutions which have benefitted from his charity compassion. Miner, wrestler, dancehall manager, disc jockey, hospital porter, fund raiser, performer of good works, Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, Knight of the Realm, Jimmy, I and millions more salute you. God bless you.’ It was signed ‘Margaret Thatcher’.

 

If the civil service advised against Savile’s knighthood because he was a paedo did they not inform the BBC they had a paedo in their midst?

 

 

”We wouldn’t understand”


There had long been rumours about the BBC’s McCulloch / Uncle Mac – who would “interfere” with children
Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret recorded their first ever broadcast inmade the radio address on October 13 1940 during Children’s Hour. … New Zealand, South Africa and the United States of America.” … Derek McCulloch, nicknamed Uncle Mac, was the man responsible

According to a contemporary report in the Daily Mirror, he ‘besieged’ the management of the BBC to find out if permission would be given.

The Queen’s speech marked the start of a monthly series of features on Children’s Hour dedicated to children in war time.

These included messages from parents and brothers and sisters to children who had gone to live in America.

The Daily Mirror wrote on 9 October, 1940: “When Uncle Mac thought of starting a new service for the children who had been evacuated to Canada, America and Australia, he decided at once that Princess Elizabeth was the one person to introduce this once-a-week feature of the Children’s Hour.

“The Princess has never broadcast before but this did not deter Uncle Mac.

He besieged the big noises in the BBC and when they wondered whether permission would be given, he turned his attention to the Ministry of Information, and pointed out how appropriate such a broadcast would be.”

The King agreed, despite concerns that Princess Elizabeth was too young.

To help put SoVile’s abuse history in context and link it, initially, with his affiliations with politicians, I’ve just compiled a short history of who was who and when, in respect of our research here. This is not to ignore – and certainly not to forget the 100’s of other childrens’ care homes investigated for abuse of their innocent victims.

1960 Jersey boys renamed Haut de la Garenne

1961 – Conservative Monday Club founded

1970 – 1974 – Edward Heath P.M.

1970’s – 1990 Elm Guest house – gay then paedo brothel

1973 Kincora first accusations of abuse by Wallace.

1974-1976 – Harold Wilson

1974-1990 Bryn Estyn children abused

1975 – Thatcher becomes Conservative party leader

1976-1979 Callaghan

1979 – 1991 Thatcher

1980 Kincora abuse first reported in 1980

1981 HdLG report says home not economically viable should be closed or modified as the number of children were ‘declining’

1982 Elm Guest house raided

1985 Judge Hughes reported after his lengthy public inquiry on Kincora.The view that there was a more extensive ‘ring’ operating at the home was not accepted.

1986 HdLG closed

1990 Carol Kasir of Elm Guest House found dead

1994 Jillings report

2000 Waterhouse report into Bryn Estyn

2004 HdLG refurbished as a youth hostel

2006 HdLG subject of covert police investigation

And why is Savile so central to all of this?

I heard the other day – How did Savile get away with it for so long as if it was some sort of mystery.

I would rephrase it –How could someone who was so closely linked with the aristocracy such as ( Mountbatten and Charles), someone closely linked with so many senior police officers in the UK, So close to senior politicians that for example he spent several Xmas’s with Former PM Thatcher, someone close to the Former PM Ted Heath, knowing that someone with such links would of course be vetted by security services. How could someone like that get away with sexually abusing children for all that time?

If after that and people still don’t know the answer then there is no hope for them.

Why is Savile so important … the key if you like

His connections, he just seems to be in so many places where child abuse occurred or linked to high profile people who have or are claimed to have abused children

He was more than just a stand alone child abuser. He was a procurer, a fixer for elite paedophiles

He is a gateway to unravelling some of the elite paedophile rings that operated at that time.

Savile –Prince Charles

Savile – Royal patronage

Savile – Heath – Jersey- Haut de la Garenne care home

Savile – Mountbatten – Heath – Kincora – MI5/6

Savile – Broadmoor – Sutcliffe –ripper murders- Krays – Clarke

Savile – Thatcher – It would appear most of her cabinet members during that time

Savile – Elm Guest House – various high profile politicians and clergy

Savile – Cardinal Keith O’Brien

Savile – King –Gldd –and Harris – let alone the many many other celeb’s convicted of child abuse

Savile – CHARITY fund raising – children’s charities that did nothing to protect – rather provided a convenient database and access point

The list goes on and on. So many disparate groups – all linked by Savile.
