      If these lawyers are so smart I trust they have injunctions in place to prevent the distribution of his estate pending the outcome of litigation .

        If BBC lawyers did that it would in itself be an admission of their liability to what went on on their premises.
        Victims lawyers could and probably have already done that (that is if his estate has not already been wound up).

        Aydodge E. Scheisster QC says:

        Good luck trying to get all the money in his charitable trusts, unless there was some fraud involved in the setting-up of them. He probably was getting a relative pittance from them as an income whilst he was alive, probably to forestall anyone trying to sue him on some spurious ground or another (par for the course with a bizarro celebrity like him). Wouldn’t have bothered Sir Jimmy anyway, as he was undoubtedly a schnorer par excellence who probably never whipped out his wallet except when he absolutely had to do so (though you can be sure that was the only thing he didn’t whip out). The claim of his “daughter” has to be dealt with, though. After that, whatever’s left may not be worth the hassle of suing or defending, and one anticipates that, unlike Elvis or Michael Jackson, Sir Jimmy will not continue to earn money in perpetuity in a sufficient amount capable of paying claims as they arise, and the old legal maxim of “Here’s a bob, now shut your gob” will be employed.

      This week has confirmed my belief in the dishonesty of most human beings Cat. You mention the discrepancies between UK police and politicians each seeking their pound of flesh, or trying to avoid it.
      Then we have the Savile saga where at the moment we spectators have to distinguish between those making visible allegations, saying they were subjected to Jimmy S’ pork sword or roaming fingers, and those jumping bandwagons who see possible financial killings yet choose to remain undercover/ anonymous and stir the pot.
      Suddenly Beeb ‘ celebrity’ gets a conscience and touchy / feely declarations of ‘tied hands’ and heartbreak now do the rounds in an attempt to excuse their culpability or implicate others.
      Leaving the UK many many years ago, though probably the best decision I ever made still does not avoid the heartache of realising just how low the integrity of my country has descended to.

            For each of 30 years, I made at least one trip to Scotland, often in May/June when it is at its best and the days are at their longest especially in the highlands and islands.

            The country of people into which I was born however has changed almost beyond recognition. I am happier now that I am the agent of my own change rather than have others do it for me.

          The Mainstream National Press are hoisted by their own hypocritical petard -They want Mitchell out over a minor spat, yet while they’re calling [being seen to be calling note.] for heads to roll over Hillsborough.

          Meanwhile the ‘Public interest’ is what they’re all trying to avoid.

          BTW – Several of the coppers involved in the Hillsborough [See Indy] cover up – have already been told that no matter what they will not be going to prison.

And of course the Grand Masterly ‘get out’ always seems to be to blame the public in the end. e.g. Pension thefts – it was you the public who were at fault for not putting in enough funds in the beginning!

      Labour have yet to explain why they investigated yet did nothing. It was completely in their own interests to show what went on under a Tory government. Yet they did nothing at all. Incompetence or cover up? And a cover up of what?

      Why was that ?

        I am grateful for that. I remember them all from the seventh one onwards so it was easier than it looks. I am acutely conscious of the way the pace of life has sped up in the last half century and measuring events by major scandals is valid because they really do happen more frequently now, even though in some ways they also become easier to detect with modern communications. It had been bugging me and so I did it in the hope that someone will pick it up and run with it. My role hopefully might therefore be regarded as a catalyst rather than a prime mover.

        My work was of course closely associated with the DPA and I took great pains to ensure we complied with it including restricting anyone, myself included, from holding casual copies of the database. The curious thing is that I cannot recall one single instance of either government checking or public enquiring before I effectively withdrew myself from the industry. The way a whole spate of data losses occurred in the 2000s showed that my approach was not generally followed by companies – but worse by government and local government.

        As regards FOI, I had already decided by the time of its introduction to sling my hook so I cannot claim to have had experience of it other than as a casual observer.

        Almost as stupid as allowing the state to be in charge of looking after patients through the NHS. The big problem with banks is the ‘too big to fail’ situation. In 1997 how much competition was there? Quite a lot, including many recently privatised banks like Northern Rock, Halifax, Abbey National, Bradford and Bingley, Alliance and Leicester. So many smaller banks until they amalgated later and became much too big to fail. Halifax merged with the Bank of Scotland in 2001 and then merged with Lloyds after the banking crisis started.

        And there were quite a few foreign acquisitions (such as RBS taking a huge chunk of ABN AMRO in 2007 and 10% of Bank of China in 2005) and foreign banks making UK acquisitions (like Santander) making the number of banks in the UK smaller but much bigger.

        Who was it but Labour who gave the green light for all these anti-competitive mergers and acquisitions that made the banking system so top heavy?

          I find it ironic that so many accuse Labour for failure to regulate, when the very ethos of this blog is laissez faire / unbridled capitalism / deregulation and the ensuing ‘job creation’.

          And the coalition has had 2½ years to regulate, and has done precisely nothing.

In prison where he belongs? Lying dead in a ditch? Hanging from a stairwell in an NCP carpark? No, he’s an MP, and still fairly high up, troughing-away merrily at our expense.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
