Disgusted by the coverage in the Media of the Jimmy Saville story

I find myself feeling quite disgusted by so many aspects of the Jimmy Saville investigation. Firstly, the fact that so many people evidently knew about what was going on and either did not speak out or did not make their voices loud enough to be heard by the police or other governing, relevent bodies.  If people saw events happening that involved young children I wonder what it was that stopped them from doing more about it.

There are times in everyone’s life when we are at crossroads and not sure which direction to go in. We don’t even know what we want to do. Its just easier to hope it will all go away and one day just wake up to find yourself looking out the window at your brand new car. Well wake up DREAMER your genie just left the bottle.…
