Sometimes I wished I'd never started this. The sensation lasts less than a few seconds because I know what I'm doing is right, still ...
Enough of my troubles, because last night I received some very important information that could put a very different light on the Dee Coles yarn. Someone calling themselves 'Dee Coles', living in Worthing has a Facebook page. She also contributes to sites like Trip Advisor. Whatever, I'll come back to that later. What I really want to know is
How the hell Savile was able to travel to Jersey with his campervan, without the necessary PERMIT ? You see, even now, even residents themselves have to ask permission just to have a caravan, I kid you not. Something to do with affecting hotel trade/tourism I think. If this is how it is now, what was it like in 1972 ?
I cannot say for definite, as yet, but I'm guessing that Jimmy NEVER took his campervan to Jersey. It shouldn't be that hard to check, I wonder if Osbourne Clarke bothered to ? I mean it's not that much to ask is it ? And an awful lot hangs on this, wouldn't you agree ?
There are various tales doing the rounds post October 2012, involving Jimmy and the channel Islands, mainly Jersey. The thing is, only Dee's involves a motor home/caravan. Here's another version by some other anonymous accuser
That one involved Guernsey, as did this little number
Did Mr Collins ever find Jimmy's hidden stash I wonder ? Doesn't look like it does it ?
Strange that Mr Collins didn't attempt to find Jimmy's cash in 2008 when he represented all those other alleged victims of sexual abuse in Jersey. He did so try to interest as many claimants as possible.
Last week, the High Court gave permission for 78 claims to be paid. 78 out of an original 211 (just 3 shy of the 'crimes' attributed to Jimmy by Scotland Yard in January 2013). What happened to all the others ? Were the unlucky 133 claimant's stories so ridiculous, even Osbourne Clark didn't dare ? I'm still not convinced that the scrutiny process was as thorough as it could have been, I don't care who says otherwise. After all, we don't KNOW do we ? We're not allowed to know !
Did anyone bother to ask Jimmy's friends if he brought a caravan with him to Jersey ? He was there often enough by all accounts, and everyone seemed to enjoy his visits. Oh, and NO his mother didn't have a home there, ever !
Meanwhile, everyone is pissed because the lawyers got the lions share of Jimmy's charity money, while his alleged victims, who weren't in it for the money anyway, get so little !
Wonder how much Dee Coles got ? How sad would it be if someone were to find some clear evidence that her story cannot possibly be true ? Go for it guys and gals !
Why would Jimmy have gone to all the trouble of taking his van to Jersey, getting the permit etc etc, just to stay in a hotel ? And don't tell me he parked it in the car park but didn't sleep in the hotel. I wonder if some of the inspiration for that yarn came from the Louis Theroux film ? That bit where Jimmy does that macho bit of sleeping in a freezing cold van in sub-zero temperatures near Fort William ! More questions than answers ... onwards !
