Obviously, one will be shocked to hear that an entertainer of Mr Harris's nature is being questioned in connection to the Savile issue.
However, that is because most people have no idea what the word "questioned" means in terms of police strategy. An interveiw, or questioning, will
be applied to anyone that the police believe have a connection to, or information about, an incident they are investigating. Until the results of the
interveiw, the information collected, have been gone over, and slotted into thier place in the investigation, the meaning of the interveiw, and its
content, are utterly unknown to those outside the investigative team who are working on the case.
Let me give you an example of how a person might be questioned, while remaining utterly shiny in terms of thier own personal conduct on a matter:
I was recently a witness to an armed robbery in the street where I live and work. Me and a collegue chased the thieves who had robbed the local
jewlers, round the corner and to thier vehicle, which they managed to get into before we could lay hands upon thier collars.
When the police arrived, they interveiwed my collegue and I, seperately I might add, in an in depth manner. Because my eyesight is bloody fantastic,
I was able to give them many details about one of the robbers, which they would have been otherwise unable to discover, and I had already provided
them with the details of the getaway vehicle, which they then confirmed with me at the interveiw.
Despite the fact that I was utterly innocent of any involvement with the crime commited against my friends and neigbors, I was none the less
questioned in connection with the event, because I had data the police required, and therefore, they had to ask me about the event to gain it.
Mr Harris may be being questioned about events he saw, things he heard, people he knew and the way that the entertaiment industry as a whole was
structured, during the periods being refered to. Bearing in mind that his involvement with the BBC and British broadcasting in general has been
extremely long , it makes sense for the police to want to question him on that basis alone. Also, because Mr Harris has been involved with charity,
and with kids tv over the years, he is in a fantastic position to highlight key areas and periods which might be important to the investigation as a
There is absolutely no reason to jump to the conclusion that he is being questioned because there is evidence that HE was involved in illegal
activity of any kind, aside from his being spoken to by the police (which could have many meanings, not just the sensational one).
GAG for short.
