|Janet Street Porter has claimed many at the BBC knew of allegations concerning Jimmy Saville|
However there is a certain strong irony concerning this disturbing subject. It would appear that the BBC are now accused of possibly covering up for Saville in his criminality and therefore permitting such behaviour. Now the BBC have never been shy to dine out on similar allegations concerning for instance the Catholic Church. Indeed many commentators have accused our state broadcaster of being biased against Christianity. Indeed the BBC never failed either in it's reportage or in it's dramas to mock and belittle Christianity as well as dining out extensively on the abuse issue. Yet that is hypocrisy writ large if these current allegations are true, the BBC are rotten. I will say again that my thoughts are with the victims, I just hope that the BBC will now subject itself to the same standard of critical enquiry that it has previously reserved solely for Christians. This post may be seen as having little to do with libertarianism, but if we can dispense with another morally redundant tax payer funded institution I'm game.
