Good grief, for a bunch of schoolgirls allegedly attacked by a monster in a Rolls Royce, Karin Ward and her pals had a jolly good laugh about it at the time !
In her 'autobiography' which no-one would ever see or download, she wrote words to the effect of : I never thought of it as abuse. Sorry, I really can't be bothered to scroll through that book again to find the actual words, but I know I'm not far off. Indeed, she repeated the same to the press early on in the game.
No, she wasn't 'aware' of feeling any anger now towards Savile, maybe because she was too busy being angry with the journalists, one in particular !
Hard not to be angry when everyone has you somewhere you weren't. Chew on that piece of irony if you will ! Ward wasn't in Exposure, but the worlds press and his wife placed her there just the same !
Twat Thomas had interviewed her but not for his October 3rd program. She describes events in her own blog - get ready for a bit more anger !
'last October' I thought it was five days AFTER Savile's funeral ?
It's not really Jimmy who's 'still hurting you' is it Karin ?
Email response from Karin Ward to Fiona who she couldn't remember being at Duncroft with her because she WASN'T ! But I've covered that one already, repeatedly. Google Fiona, Rabbitaway, Karin Ward, Duncroft, anyone who wants to can find numerous blog posts on that one, including extracts from actual emails like the one above. Here's another
No wonder Jones heaps so much praise on Ms Ward, keep your friends close and all that !
Now, for some light relief ! I hadn't meant to make Karin Ward the focus of part 2, it just happened that way. Let's get onto the next 'victim' presented to us in Abused.
The narrator informs us that after Merry ann's film was scuppered 'a former detective who'd worked on the piece, took the story to ITV and began working on his own documentary'
The screen then says 'nine months later' and 'September 30th 2012' (the interview with Lucy Manning was screened on 2nd October 2012 on ITV news)
'We had heard that ITV had this documentary that was going to make claims about Jimmy Savile . Straight away we knew this was going to be big and in the Sunday papers it got a lot of coverage ...... someone from the newsroom came over and said, 'we've had an email from a woman who wants to speak to a journalist about Jimmy Savile'
Ever helpful, Manning does NOT say WHEN this email came in or even how this complete stranger to how TV companies work, was able to access ITV planning !
Next, we're treated to just PART of the interview made back then. Just a few words that is until we arrive at Dee's caravan home for her Abused interview ! Firstly, in an attempt to jettison any thoughts that she may have appeared a tad 'matter of fact' in her earlier appearance, she explains that she was on Beta-blockers that day 'I couldn't have done it without. But I felt when I looked at it I was so detatched from it ... sexual assault, so matter of fact. It wasn't matter of fact at all, it really wasn't and that's why I was determined not to take beta-blocker's today (she smiles) cos it is messy'
Not quite how you'd expect someone about to talk about something very painful, to look is she ? Next, remembering she hasn't taken her beta-blockers, she becomes upset, yet manages to compose herself
'My mum and I were dead close ... I was definitely going to be a teacher' Her mother took her on holiday to Jersey because she'd done so well at school. She says she was 14, an odd time to be congratulated for your grades, but moving along
'I chose the hotel (God she sighs) How many 14 year olds chose holiday hotels even now ?
'We were at our table and he just wondered in with gold shorts and a vest ... worked the room came over to our table .. my mum thought it was incredibly exciting.
It was the next day that the assault happened. Next morning there was one other girl about my age staying at the hotel ...it had a back door through the car park to take you to the beach, and that's where Savile was staying in his motor-home in the car park ...he came out and got this girl to take photos of me and him ..
The first two he's really pulling myself into him, thrusting his leg between my legs and it was ugh. I could tell when I look at that expression on my face I'm not comfortable with it.
And then the third one, I do remember cos he said, oh he took his vest off and got me to stand behind him. I was more comfortable in that one.
Apologies guys and gals, those few pics are photo's off my tv screen, here are those I copied earlier, one's we've seen many times. Does she look in anyway 'uncomfortable' in ANY of these
'and then we got invited into the van ... locked the door pulled me towards him ... ' Becomes very upset, tearful but says nothing more about what actually happened, choosing to bemoan the fate of others, sex with minors etc etc.
'I didn't tell my mum what had happened. He was still in the hotel ans she was still talking to him, and I thought; you must know there's something wrong with me you must see it. And I really hated her in that moment'
Oh my giddy God, now she's turning on her mother, blaming her for not protecting her
It's her job to protect me and that hadn't happened. I couldn't tell her, oh God I couldn't tell her. It's only because she's dead I was able to come forward when I did (sniff sniff)
The interviewer remarks her current abode of choice, being a caravan by the sea, not dissimilar to the place in which she'd suffered such a 'horrendous experience' ?
Dee forgetting to remember to forget her beta-blockers, breaks into a hearty laugh with a line that could have been drawn straight out of Jimmy Savile's own mouth !
'I never thought that .. really funny' and continues with a line that could have come straight out of an interview with Jimmy himself ..
'This is total freedom ... (describing her joy at realising she might get her this home 'This is it - my house is going to happen'
Mmm, when did she buy this I wonder !
Her interview with ITV news broadcast on 2nd October 'her claim triggered an immediate public response'
Cut to audio of a radio phone in, the Vine show I think. The great British public were astounded by the revelations. A few objected to the claims being made against a dead man
'maligning a man who made £40,000,000 for charity'
'if this is true, why did they not report it to someone'
The rest is, as they say, history, rather THEIR story, their spin. They had the upper hand, they controlled who was able to say what to whom. The little people's voices were drowned out and the UNTOLD story is yet to be told !
But we're working on it Jimmy, we really are !
