'There you have it from the horses mouth. A Tory minister from the time confirming that there was a cover-up. I believe that is the first time we have had such a confirmation, one that we can almost take as an official confirmation, rather than the allusions we have had to date. What is notable from this is she was NOT referring to Peter Morrison.
By stating she was not part of the cover-up, she could not be referring to Morrison, as she has already admitted that she knew but did nothing, which is being part of a cover-up by any benchmark. So Edwina was referring to the cover-up of different paedophile activities, as she then confirmed by mentioning the current police investigations.'

So much for BBC transparency! 90 pages of BBC’s Savile report blacked out, DG goes to ground... and no one is blamed for fiasco
'The BBC faced ridicule last night for publishing an ‘open’ dossier into the Jimmy Savile scandal that was covered in censor’s ink.
The corporation had repeatedly promised to be open and transparent about the material, which formed the basis of last year’s Pollard inquiry into the Savile crisis.
But there were accusations of a cover-up after large swathes of staff testimonies about the saga were blacked out.'
