I could hardly stop laughing as I saw his sad little face on the News last night and it has cheered me up no end again this morning. "All political lives, unless they are cut off in midstream at a happy juncture, end in failure" as Enoch once wrote. And Fatty has been allowed to swim for far too long already.

The BBC had one chance to manage and control the fallout from Savile. If they had handled the 'investgation' and subsequent whitewash / coverup / blame deflection exercise with skill and cunning they might have got away with it. As it is, the exact opposite has happened.

You need to supply more information, and maybe a link or two, for your non-UK readers. Who is Fatty Pang? I figured you were playing on a name like Patty Fang, and there is such a person!

And St. George? I had to use google to get the answer

"Fat Pang" is an English translation of the nickname Hong Kongers gave to Chris Patten when he served as the last British Governor of Hong Kong (1992-1997). The HK Chinese called him 'Fei Pang' - 'Fei' is Cantonese for "fat" and 'Pang' is the closest Chinese name to Patten.
