EXPLOSIVE claims have emerged that conspiracy author David Icke may have LIED about his knowledge of Jimmy Savile’s predatory paedophilia and necrophilia, to the point of being COMPLICIT in the media establishment’s cover-up of the notorious former BBC star’s HEINOUS CRIMES.
His timeline of events is highly suspect – as an important BBC employee from the late 1970s and right through to 1990 it is most likely that he learnt about Savile in the late 1970s or early 1980s and was part of the great BBC COVER UP.
This certainly isn’t the version of events David Icke would have you believe.
If you have been paying attention to him these past few years you will have noticed he has been leading his coverage of the Savile scandal with the claim that since the 1990s, when he claims ‘unimpeachable sources’ informed him of Savile’s true nature, he has ‘told those who would listen’ about Savile’s ‘paedophilia and necrophilia’ (“Jimmy Savile… Doorman to the Cesspit,” David Icke newsletter, 14 October 2012) and that he had ‘named’ Savile as a predatory paedophile ‘such a long time ago’ (David Icke Newsletter, 3 November 2012.)
His claims of being a lone voice attempting to convince the disbelieving masses for decades was even REPEATED without question in the mainstream media.
Sonia Poulton in the Sunday Express (28 October 2012) wrote, ‘Savile’s BBC colleague David Icke, who went from respected broadcaster to laughing stock, was at the forefront of such claims in the Nineties when he named Savile and others as paedophiles.’
Tom Peck in The Independent (26 October 2012) made a similar remark while reporting on Icke’s Wembley Stadium gig, noting that Icke ‘might well feel a little vindicated. For while Jimmy Savile may have been protected by the BBC and the media establishment, Icke has been calling the former DJ a paedophile for years, to anyone who would listen. “They used to laugh at Icke,” claims the promotional material to his Wembley show, and indeed they did.’
Mainstream journalists might fall for Icke’s evidence-free, self-aggrandizing bluster, but not us. We have crunched all the data from every David Icke publication before Savile’s death, from Truth Vibrations (1991) to Human Race Get Off Your Knees (2010), as well as every newsletter and public speech, and the word ‘Savile’ only occurs twice in these millions upon millions of words. Paul Savile, graffiti artist, gets mentioned once. As does a murder suspect wearing a Savile Row suit. But the most famous Savile of them all?
FACT: Before Jimmy Savile’s crimes were reported by the mainstream media, Icke mentioned him a total of ZERO times. Zilch. Nada. Not once, despite naming a multitude of others as paedophiles: George Bush Snr, Bill Clinton, Boxcar Willie, Kris Kristofferson, and many more. Not until Savile was dead and the whole mainstream media was swarming over his cadaver did Icke dare to so much as mention his name in his work.
Icke cannot be allowed to continue taking credit where it is not due.
But it gets WORSE.
He also has some serious questions to answer.
It is has become well known that BBC insiders in the 1970s and 1980s knew about Savile’s predilections. Former BBC personality Bill Oddie, for example, said that Savile’s activities were a ‘running sick joke’ at the BBC. ‘The idea that youngsters were prey – everybody knew that.’
Tony Blackburn, as reported in the Herald Scotland (14 October 2012) admitted, ‘There were always rumours circulating about Savile, the problem at the time was that rumour was always hard to translate in to fact.’
Former BBC Radio 1 presenter Nick Murray claimed that ‘absolutely everybody knew about’ Savile’s behaviour (ITV, 13 November 2012).
Janet Street-Porter, who joined the BBC in 1987, recently confessed to Sky News that in regards to Savile, “A lot of people in the BBC knew what was going on.’
So are we to believe that David Icke didn’t know what was going on?
David Icke, who joined the BBC in the late 70s as a sports presenter, and from 1981 worked as a presenter on the prestigious BBC Newsnight program, and subsequently on the prominent BBC shows Breakfast Time, Pot Black, and Grandstand until his contract was ended in 1990.
Are we to believe that such a prominent BBC insider didn’t know what was going on until the 1990s when his mysterious ‘unimpeachable sources’ told him about Savile’s nature?
The internet is starting to bubble over with people calling Icke out on his dubious claims.
In an article at The Icke Exposed website (25 Oct 2012), for example, Simon Loveland wrote:
David Icke’s been boasting recently, how clever he was for revealing that Jimmy Savile was a paedophile back in 2011, and how nobody else believed him at the time. What I want to know is this—how many years ago did David Icke, really know about Jimmy Savile sexually abusing hundreds of children while working at the BBC, before finally coming forward with his story?
David Icke joined the team of Newsnight, in 1981. Esther Rantzen had known about Jimmy Savile’s sexual exploitation and abuse of children, since the 1970′s. How likely is it that in an organisation like the BBC (which is very close knit), David Icke wouldn’t have heard the rumours about Jimmy Savile as well? Not very likely. David Icke has been aware of Jimmy Savile’s child abuse activities, just like all the other prominent BBC presenters. David Icke like the rest of them, chose to say absolutely nothing.
Now this vile, cowardly man who put his own career before the safety of hundreds of children and teenagers, has the audacity to come forward and take ‘credit’ for exposing Savile as a paedophile after his death!!!
Congratulations Mr Icke—You like all the others, have shielded a monstrous serial paedophile from prosecution to save your BBC career and in doing so, you’ve made sure this appalling man was able to carry out the satanic, ritual sexual abuse of as many children as he wanted, for years and years—you should be very proud of yourself!!!
Commenting on this article on the GodlikeProductions forum, there was also a discouraging word from an anonymous user (10 October 2012):
[Icke] claims he only learned of Savile’s behaviours in the late 90’s, but I somehow doubt this, as Icke worked at the BBC in the early 80’s for 8 years — when Savile was there and rumours had long been circulating. And it doesn’t matter whether he knew in the 80’s or not — fact is, Icke was informed by his “unimpeachable” sources in the 90’s, but did nothing about it, yet he wrote about Ted Heath, the Royals, George Bush, Dick Cheney… but no Savile.
