    Yes, story needs more background.

    Also first tie to see "bail" used like that.

    And so another piece of my childhood turns into crap... Saville, DLT, Gary Glitter, Jim Davidson and now Stuart Hall.

    Also first time to see "bail" used like that.

    It's used like that all the time over here when referring to people ordered to return to court who aren't kept in custody.

    They were hardly the makings of a glittering childhood to start with.

    Betraythetrust!

    Hall was not involved with the Saville investigation but it all seems odd that all the victims from 25-50 years ago suddenly come out the woodwork. Looking for comp? Probably.

    I notice that all those arrested and questioned by Saville police are those out of favour or disliked by most media and authorities. It's turning into a witch hunt that will not ask questions of "acceptable" celebs nor Saville's Royal and political connections.

    ...? What does it mean? "He was bailed to appear before... court."

    In US, bail means to put up money for someone to not have to stay in jail until their court money, as a guarantee they will go to court. (You get thte money back if the guy goes to his court date, and not if he doesn't). (Or to get water out of a sinking boat).

    This sounds like he was ordered? It means ordered?

    That's hardly the point... point I was making is that growing up in the 70s these were the friendly faces on TV.... and behind the scenes they were monsters. All started when Gary Glitter was arrested as a paedophile...

    In the UK, "he was bailed" means he put up a sum of money as guarantee that he'd turn up in court, and the magistrate agreed to accept it.

    Another reason to not pay the BBC fee and risk having their black trucks hunt you down.

    -soon their tyranny will end with all the internet(s) TV (Roku etc).

    say the "TV detector van" is real: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-468466/The-new-TV-detector-reach-home.html

    say the TVDV is fake:

    Britain’s Information Commissioner has swatted down a Freedom of Information request for information on the size of the BBC’s van fleet and the technology used.

    The grounds given for the refusal, however, are telling enough: “if [the BBC] did so it would damage the public’s perception of the effectiveness of TV detector vans,” the report says. “… It relies on the public perception that the vans could be used at any time to catch evaders.”

    If they are real? -Then why doesn't NHK have the troops use these? I am against the vans, but there are many criminals out there not paying the NHK fee also. -These 10 Yen Men should be brought to justice and need to take responsibility for their actions.
