  • Nobody filed a complaint to the Police when Saville was alive and could have defended himself. Those who complain now can win compensation. I don't know whether Saville was innocent or guilty - but I worry about this new 'no smoke without fire' legal test will lead to terrible injustice.

  • A hospital forced to sell the scanner from a children's ward, so Liz Dux can boost RJW's PEP.

  • Interesting. I would like to know how this particular firm already has instructions.
    I would also like to see preliminary issues on 1. limitation and 2. if a duty of care actually exists.
    The fact that Saville is not around to defend himself is interesting and quite how a court would decide whom to believe when it is only going to hear one side seems to be unbalanced I suspect that this may turn out not to be about the merits, but how much the BBC and NHS want to put in the kitty rather than spending telephone numbers in legal costs.

  • Will money really make it better?

  • This looks like an advert for instructing Liz Dux.

    Why not go against Sir Jimmy Saville's estate? Oh, it's because there's less money to be had there...

  • "They want to be taken seriously, they are not interested in the financial compensation at all, they just want the cathartic process of telling someone what they have been through and someone believing them for a change.”
    OK, so why not just tell the police? They seem all too ready to believe anyone with a tale of abuse by JS, and it's so much easier now that he's not inconveniently around to deny it,.
    The alleged victims can have as much catharsis as they like, and it's all free.

  • If Savile victims want to be believed, I believe them. No money can make up for what he did but maybe it can help.
