Jack Rivlin - The Proof Of Dumbing Down At Cambridge University

Jack Rivlin - what happens, when a lad tries to do a man's job


Last updated: May 10th, 2013

We sneered [not you, you were almost still filling your nappies, Jack] at the tabloid obsession with paedophiles [sic]. But complacency is what let Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall get away with it [sic].

"Jimmy Savile: witnesses kept their mouths shut.

We used to sneer at the tabloids’ obsession with paedophiles [sic]. Before Jimmy Savile’s disgrace [sic], the main thing liberals [?] feared about paedophilia [sic] were the witch hunts stirred up by the News of the World. Exaggerated [really Jack?] tales of mobs attacking [sic] paediatricians and the (admittedly funny) Brass Eye special, "Paedogeddon", both carried the same message: calm down. Paedophiles [sic] were freaks of nature [sic], a matter for psychologists, not public morality. [interesting interpretation, there, Jack]

Post-Savile, that view is unsustainable [sic]. It looks like [sic] the light entertainment bubble gave its numerous abusers [weasel word] astonishing opportunities. And other people’s silence and inaction allowed it to continue for decades.

The silence is one of the most shocking things about Yewtree [maybe to a kid]. As every hideous new detail emerges, one depressing sentiment repeats itself: “Everyone knew it was going on.” We’re told it was a permissive time, when paedophilia [sic] wasn’t taken so seriously. The scandal has been a watershed [sic], giving victims [sic] new strength to speak up and seek justice. But why then – given the extraordinary number of witnesses [sic] – is it still the victims [sic] going to the police?"
