Jimmy Savile police arrest two more men

The Metropolitan police have made two further arrests in their Operation Yewtree investigation into alleged sexual offences by Jimmy Savile and others.

A 53-year-old man was arrested in Hampshire and a 59-year-old man held in west London on suspicion of sexual offences on Wednesday.

(...)

The Met police said the two arrests fall under the "others" strand of the investigation, meaning the alleged offences are not connected to Savile.

(...)

Others arrested under Operation Yewtree include former pop star Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and publicist Max Clifford.

1. The 59 year old was Jim Davidson

Why does it seem that so many of the arrests are those objectionable people that you thought the entertainment business really could do without?

2. Remember, libel laws still apply on DU

So please think very carefully before calling Jim Davidson a comedian.

3. The Tories' favourite "politically incorrect" comedian? Tsk, tsk.

Who'd-a-thunk-it?

I try to avoid schadenfreude but for Davidson I'll make an exception.

4. Davidson is a horrible man...

and should have been arrested long ago for his self-admitted wife-beating.

5. Agreed

Sadly his wife-beating didn't seem to concern BBC bosses who kept him on prime-time television, Big Break/Generation Game.
