UPDATE – 4th October 2012. With all the people coming forward and alleging that Savile raped or molested them, there is little doubt as to what he was. What is not coming out is the much bigger story that he was a procurer. He supplied vulnerable kids to Prime Ministers, and was also a regular and welcome visitor at The Palace. No wonder they’re running media stories/reports to draw peoples’ attention away from the role that Jimmy Savile played as a procurer of children for sexual abuse by others, and focus on the obvious and well known fact that he was an abuser in his own right.

During the headline round:
DEAYTON: You used to be a wrestler didn’t you?
SAVILE: I still am.
DEAYTON: Are you?
SAVILE: I’m feared in every girls’ school in the country.
DEAYTON: Yeah, I’ve heard about that.
SAVILE: What have you heard?
MERTON: Something about a cunt with a rancid, pus-filled cock.
(Huge audience laugh; Awkward pause)
SAVILE: I advise you to wash your mouth out, my friend…
MERTON: That’s what she had to do! (Audience laughs)
HISLOP: Weren’t you leaving money in phone boxes or something?
(Saville glares at him) Or have I got completely the wrong end of the…
SAVILE: (To Deayton, heavily) The question you asked was about wrestling.
DEAYTON: Yes. And then you mentioned girls’ schools. I don’t know whe…
SAVILE: Well I understood this was a comedy programme. I realise now how wrong I was. (Audience laugh)
DEAYTON: So were you a professional wrestler?
SAVILLE: Yes I was.
DEAYTON: (To audience) Glad we got that cleared up.(Pulls face; audience giggles)
HISLOP: Feared by every girls’ school in the country…
SAVILE: That’s right.
MERTON: Due to having a rancid, pus-filled cock.(Huge audience laugh)
HISLOP: You’re on top form tonight, Paul…
SAVILLE: (Strangely) I’m…this is not what I…
FLOOR MANAGER: (OOV) OK, do you…(inaudible section)…shall we, for pick-ups…
MERTON: I’m terribly sorry. I don’t know what came over me.
SAVILE: A pus-filled cock, I imagine. (Shocked audience laugh)
MERTON: Oh, it’s nice to see you joining in. We’d been waiting for you, you sad senile old shitter. (Audience appears to do double-take)
DEAYTON: I think we…d-d-you you want to apologise to our guest, Paul?
MERTON: Sorry, I do apologise. Sir senile old shitter, is what I meant to say.
(Audience laugh; pause) Sir senile old shitter…who fucks minors.
HISLOP: Sorry, I’m just looking at our lawyer again. (Waves) Hello!
DEAYTON: Shall we get back on course with this, or sha…
SAVILLE: I do fuck miners, that’s quite correct. I have always done so. They can do the most wonderful things with cigars. The coal…
MERTON: What, they stick them up your senile, pus-filled arse?
FLOOR MANAGER: (OOV): Come on…I’m getting an ear-bashing here. It’s…
MERTON: Oh they want to continue. Sorry, I’ll contain myself. Carry on…
DEAYTON: Right (Pause) You used to be a professional wrestler didn’t you?
(Huge audience laugh)
SAVILE: (Calmly) I did.
DEAYTON: You didn’t have a nickname or anything?
SAVILE: Yes – ‘Loser’. (Audience laughs)
TAP – The above sent into comments anonymously. If Savile can operate unchecked for sixty years and be a known paedophile and proud of it, it’s not too difficult to believe that he and his type are protected by the powerful. Savile used to drop off kids at Edward Heath’s place in his Rolls Royce, says Gordon Logan, ex-MI5.
Here’s another team on HIGNFY referring to Savile’s ‘attributes’, more obliquely but no doubting their meaning….and as a joke, saying the latest Savile TV series, with Savile aged 80, was risky seeing how old he was.

Not even Sarah Cornley?
She was an exception.
Who’s Sarah Cornley?
Sarah Cornley is…
About fifteen grand in damages, wasn’t she? (Uncertain audience laugh)
So if I was going to mention that you threatened to break her arm if she said anything…
You’d be very wrong. (Pause) I said I’d break both her arms. (Audience unease)
Fucking hell. I mean, you’re just sitting there, all shell suit and cigar, wearing those fucking…I don’t know what they are.
Chrome-plated SC-700 sun-visors, these are. Sent to me by…
We don’t give a shit. Ladies and gentlemen, Sir James Saville OBE. Jim has fixed it for me to have my arms broken.

They could actually sing, even if they look naff today.
