Margaret's mistake

As it is revealed that the late Baroness Thatcher attempted to get Jimmy Savile knighted four times, we call for a wholescale review of the British honours system

 

Today, The Independent revealed that it took the late Margaret Thatcher four attempts to get the late Jimmy Savile knighted.

 

Whilst clearly Thatcher showed poor judgement in not listening to those, such as Lord Armstrong, who clearly informed her of the “difficult[ies]” of giving a title to a man now revealed as one of Britain’s most prolific paedophiles, she was not alone in supporting this now disgraced individual.

Edward Heath’s government awarded Savile an MBE in 1971 and Tony Blair, William Hague and Gordon Brown amongst others were amongst the many politicians happy to be photographed with him.

 

Margaret Thatcher made a mistake and a lesson should be learned from this. The honours system in this country needs a top-to-bottom review.

  1. I think the government was using the young children as a business to keep the Children’s homes from closing down. Selling children to all comers for sex and murder must have been a nice little earner for the bankrupt British government.

    • Time is our greatest enemy, the sexual abused children will become adults that bottle anger and seek revenge, something was bound to happen. It is far to late for window dressing and government spin. The cat is out of the bag. It was sheer arrogance and abuse of power.
