The Savile Effect

The Savile Effect


(a) Widespread hysteria, generated by an individual, or group, with vested interests, usually to improve their political, social or financial position,

(b) A construct, sometimes used in policing, to describe an alleged phenomenon, arising from little, to no, verifiable, evidence.

e.g. "Funds are running low, time to start another Savile Effect", "They may shut us down, time for the Savile Effect."

Origin: From the defamation and denigration, of the deceased benefactor, Sir James Savile.
