BBC Release Redacted Pollard Review

The redacted transcripts of the Beeb’s Savile inquiry can be read here. The black pen is particularly noticeable over Paxo’s evidence

UPDATE: Here are the top lines:

  • Paxman says it was “common gossip” at the BBC that Savile liked young girls
  • Jim’ll Fix It special suggested as “homage” to Savile, and “Christmas treat”, in October 2011. Entwistle described it as a “great idea”.
  • 8 out of 19 pages of Paxman’s evidence redacted.
  • Entwistle nicknamed himself “Gold Commander”.

UPDATE: Big thanks to @Tent101 for producing searchable PDF versions of the Pollard files:

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
