You couldn’t make it up, an apparent anti-speech activist masquerading as a “privacy” lawyer has said that the allegations against Savile are true, whilst telling others not to name “politicians as suspected paedophiles”:
Hugh Tomlinson QC, a leading privacy lawyer, said: “The first point to make is that for many years there have been rumours about all kinds of individuals. Some of those will turn out to be false, and some to be true. Lord McAlpine is a very good example of the first and Jimmy Savile is a very good example of the second. But for people to report rumours in the way that some people apparently are doing online is extremely dangerous from a legal point of view.
“First of all it could prejudice any prosecutions. Secondly, it could expose them to defamation proceedings. If people are naming politicians as suspected paedophiles, it seems the McAlpine lessons have not been learned.”
As we know from blogs such as Rabbitaway, Jim Cannot Fix This and Anna Raccoon Savile was innocent of most allegations. Now I may be wrong about Hugh Tomlinson, he may just be an idiot but I can’t help feel that there is some sort of sinister attempt by him to try and keep paedohysteria alive by protecting politicians from spurious paedophilia allegations whilst carrying on “business as usual” of locking up tens of thousands of working and middle class men on spurious claims of “paedophilia”.
