Do you know how absurd it is to even believe that the BBC can be brought down by mere speculations? Have they ceased to collect the license payment?
My direct debit went out as per usual.
And, if you fail to realise that this is about entertainment, then you are failing to look at the situation, and what is going on, critically. The
victims are simply being used all over again. The Police have changed since the original allegations were made, and I am not pro-Police either, but
it wasn't them who ordered that evidence be destroyed. Not according to anything that I have read. Progress is, and has been made, children in care
have never, in history, been as protected as they are now. Children in general have a greater voice, in this country, than they ever had. And the
victims of abuse can obtain the support that they need, not from the government, but from independent and charitable bodies set up to meet that
As convenient as it would be to believe that there is a huge conspiracy to conceal an enormously powerful group of people that are responsible for all
abuse, the truth is far more mundane. And although certainly such networks do exist on a lesser scale, the main reason that such abuse was able to go
on, including that committed by Saville and his cronies, is because people chose to ignore it, and those children had nowhere and no-one to turn to.
That attitude is, thankfully, on the wane, but it is essential that we remain vigilant, and that we continue to support the work of the NSPCC and
Childline. The worst thing that we can do, is believe that it is beyond our control and that there is nothing that we can do to stop it, because that
just isn't true.
I agree though, this thread has run it's course.
Best wishes, and I am sorry if I come off as critical...that is not directed at you, but at the situation in general.
