The Photo is from 1980 so she was only into her new role as PM for about a year. Was Saville exposed for the creep that he turned out to be back then? I'm not too familiar with the guy other than his recent exposure one whole year after his death. (pardon the pun).
Savile set up two charities, the Jimmy Savile Stoke Mandeville Hospital Trust in 1981, and the Leeds-based Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust in 1984. During the sexual abuse scandal in October 2012 the charities announced that they would distribute their funds, of £1.7m and £3.7m respectively, among other charities and then close down.
Apparently back then he was known to be quite the philanthropist in the UK so this picture in question seems to fit the era.
Was Thatcher involved in JImmy's escapades or did she Have personal knowledge of them? All I could find is that they were known to be friends for many years. He was apparently friends with many people during his heyday. If not, I fail to see the point behind this thread linking him to Thatcher.
The fact whether the public was privy to saviles "escapades" or not does not change much to the fact.
