BBC Saville Cesspit Guarded by Her Majesty's MI5
For more than fifty years the BBC denied, that secret service vetting was taking place. Broadcast unions, constantly raised the issue. The BBC denied it both formally and informally. Alasdair Milne then Director-General, said, "I cannot believe this is true, just seven months later, he was forced to admit it, 'It is one of those things one knew about, felt a bit grubby about. I think most of us did but didn't tackle it as radically as we should have done." Like the issue of paedophillia today, this is still the odious culture of the BBC today.
After newspaper disclosures in August 1985, the BBC finally confirmed, the secret service political vetting system of its staff. MI5's recommendation's are final. The BBC were so secretive on political vetting, to the extent of not telling even their own chairperson, Stuart Young until early 1985 ? Apart from the embarrassment of having to admit, clandestine vetting, the answer lies in the peculiar status of the corporation and the considerable numbers of its pedophile employees.
The whispers of a child sex scandal centred on Jimmy Savile, it's entertainment anchorman were around for over thirty years. Information surfaced that Jimmy Savile was a full member of Paedophile Information Exchange (P.I.E) an organisation which campaigning for the abolition of the age of sexual consent in the UK.
The BBC's relationship with the British state and Her Majesty, was outlined in a memorandum of the 1971 Franks Commission on the Official Secrets Act. The official view is that the Governors of the BBC, are persons holding office under Her Majesty, as per the meaning of Section 2 of the 1911 Official Secrets Act, that the Director-General and his staff ,are people employed under persons who hold such office.
This ruling clearly bound BBC staff as being employed by persons holding office under Her Majesty and thus in possession of secret information. Hence their special relationship and obligations to the British State. It was on this pretext that political vetting by MI5 was introduced and preserved with secrecy. The BBC do not view themselves a State servants: Their staff's legal status is neither that of civil servants nor that of those employed by a commercial organisation.
A letter was been sent to Lord Patten, Chairman of the BBC, quite few years ago, stating "I am placing this information before you in this open letter as I feel that the BBC should now initiate a full investigation into these reports suggesting that during the 1970’s and early 1980’s the BBC’s editorial policy was influenced in favour of P.I.E. This alleged infiltration of the BBC by P.I.E in large numbers, might also explain how Savile was able to operate as a sexual predator for his extended tenure at the BBC without challenge or prosecution.Neither could it be possible in such large numbers for such an extended period without the dark hand of MI5.
Stuart Hood believed if the BBC was honest, it would admit that it must support central political authority of the Queen by virtue of the Her Majesty's licence-fee system. But like their paedophiles, the Corporation has always had fantasies of grandeur about itself as a social organisation beyond accountability. It also with the help of MI5, prevented investigation or prosecution as the writer of the of the following letter was to discover along time ago. "I will pursue my objective of securing a full investigation into the alleged membership of Jimmy Savile of the organisation, P.I.E. I will also continue to seek a full and open investigation of the influence, if any, that P.I.E exerted on BBC editorial policy during the 1970's and 1980's. I also expect the authorities to investigate whether any BBC employees were members of P.I.E or expressed sympathy and support for the aims and objectives of P.I.E." Sadly he was foiled and frustrated.
Margaret Thatcher who had a considerable number of paedophiles in her Tory Cabinet as well as the BBC, once threatened to "veto" a BBC Panorama programme about MI5 and MI6 because it was going to reveal details about the way they operate and questioned their total lack of public accountability. In a "top secret and personal" letter, cabinet secretary, Sir Robert Armstrong, recommended that Margaret Thatcher invoke rarely used powers to silence them.
Today Britain's Secret Services, MI5 and MI6 are demanding changes to the UK's justice system, with secret service courts to intern any member of the public without trial, such as whistle blowers on paedophiles or those with liberal politics. MI5, still secretly controls the hiring and firing of BBC staff. For example they blocked the appointment of an editor of The Listener. MI5 originally operated, unknown to almost all BBC staff, from Room 105, an out-of-the way office, on the first floor of Broadcasting House, on which George Orwell modelled his ' Ministry of Truth in 'Nineteen Eighty-Four.' Behind that door sat Brigadier Ronnie Stonham, 'Sp.A. to D.Pers.' As assistant to Christopher Martin, with a team of three female assistants, he liaised with MI5.
BBC staff applying for promotion needed MI5 approval, with their continuous political surveillance on everyone, including directors, film editors, actors and people such as Jimmy Savile. Some had their files stamped with a symbol, like a Christmas tree. Meaning a second, secret file held in Room 105. Intimate personal details containing purported 'security' information, collected by secret agents which in reality was political. A staff member may be shortlisted the second file, a buff folder with a round red sticker and the sign 'secret,' given to the department head, to sign for it.
Concealed from the individuals concerned, who have no clue about what is being used against them, similar to the secret courts to sentence people to long term of internment, similar to Marian Price in British Occupied Ireland.Their details are fed into a computer containing the details of millions of British 'subversives' ?. When MI5 regards a person as a 'security risk' or politically incorrect, it is enough to blacklist him or her for life. A bizarre aspect, is that BBC boards, are expressly forbidden to ask openly about political views at interview, while it is a priority in secret. Senior executives are fearful of speaking out about vetting, because of the Official Secrets Act, with victims of blacklisting, generally too scared to admit it. neither can they speak about the numerous MI5 paedophile proteges within the BBC.
Sir Hugh Greene a former director-general, said: 'In my day we would never have allowed jobs like The Listener to go to MI5.' Then MI5's claims were challenged, they were often at best, over-zealous and at worst ,false information against applicants, for political spite or to leave the door open for an MI5 paedophile protege. An example of MI5 blacklisting of potential BBC personnel at its most sinister, was in 1981, when a board considered whom to appoint editor of the BBC's Listener. Richard Gott the Guardian's features editor, with a brilliant presentation was chosen.
However, MI5 disapproved. 'His file went off for "colleging," the secret BBC term for MI5 vetting and it was blocked. They said he was politically unsuitable Their phrase "He digs with the wrong foot" being the same terms, used for a Catholic seeking employment witha boss from the Orange Order In British Occupied Ireland. So, what do the BBC and MI5 achieve from their secret black- balling ? The reasons for this clumsy, dishonest and very unfair system can only be PIE whose key aim was to secure a reduction of the age of consent in the UK to FIVE and then abolish it altogether. Within the BBC they became creators in public discourse with programmes such as Hearts and Minds, grooming public political opinion for MI5 with even their own programmes such as Spooks.
The Paedophile organisation secured significant support within Her Majesty's parliament, the entertainment industry, the media and similar, professional, organisations. It was reported that the organisation's membership list was found to contain the names of nationally known politicians, entertainers and people engaged in professions, including the medical and legal profession. The influential nature of its membership and the extent of support in places like the BBC among ‘opinion formers’ probably explains how it managed to remain in existence in Britain for so long. Independent investigations indicate clearly that the tentacles of P.I.E extended deep in the British establishment as well as the BBC and Parliament.
In October 2004, stories were published implying the BBC Director General had suggested that the dumbing down of the BBC was the consequence of its growing number of female executives: "Too many dumb, dumb, dumb cookery and gardening shows . . . I have nothing against women. I've worked with them all my life. It just seems to me that the television service has largely been run by women for the last four to five years and they don't seem to have done a great job of work."
The system where all staff were politically vetted by the Secret Services and their decision given in writing without anyreasons for their recommendations was enough to blacklist him or her permanently. Members of board interviews were told not to ask questions. For many years a BBC staff member was used as MI5 Liaison Officer but in 1982 Brigadier Ronald Stonham, moved into Room 105 along with the Director of Personnel, Christopher Martin. In 1985. The BBC stated, "Only relatively few members of staff go through this [vetting] procedure. They are necessarily involved in sensitive areas or require access to classified information.'
They are liars. Considerable evidence shows that vetting was used in a political context, not for security reasons.
Whitehall euphemisms for vetting became standard during post-interview discussions. 'Does he play with a straight bat?' or 'Does he have snow on the right foot?' typical BBC expressions for political suitability that can be found on the streets of loyalist sectarian Belfast. Politics and sexual orientation rather than security were much more relevant. MI5 reserve their strongest objections to BBC drama producers. Television drama reflects the latest radical mood with hard-hitting, naturalistic dramas which portray working-class people in a sympathetic light who might with affirmation challenge the whole paedophile British class sytsem, sparked off political controversy such as recent Jimmy Savile controversy. Drama has a powerful hold on peoples hearts and minds and a source of political influence much safer then to have MI5 programmes like Spooks in place.
One applications as a film editor on a six-month attachment to the BBC Community Programmes Unit was unsuccessful. A senior executive sitting on the interview board, explained why. The applicant was interviewed but as soon as he left the room, MI5 said there had been a mistake. His file had a Christmas tree, meaning a security file was because of something to do with sympathies for Welsh nationalism. He didn't get the job. His Welsh nationalist activities amounted to learning the Welsh language, because he was working on programmes of Welsh interest. This is also true for applicants with Scottish or Irish sympathies.
Many sources spoke of Savile’s membership of P.I.E which was known to many others within the BBC, who were either sympathetic or were members themselves. There was no effective pursuit of Savile, his friends in the BBC or the organisation, by either MI5 or the BBC, during the many years of P.I.E’s existence. Contrasted against their thorough vetting of BBC staff, with liberal thoughts or politics, there can be but one conclusion on the generic nature and extent of BBC/MI5 paedophile patronage. Savile must have been vetted by MI5. Savile was known, by many of his contacts, to be a child sex abuser for over 50 years. Savile was a procurer for royalty and the wealthy. Savile was a protected man. This cesspit, is at the core of the British ruling class, protected by both MI5 and the BBC, they are filth.
