article imageJimmy Savile's holiday home vandalised

By Steve Hayes     Oct 28, 2012 in World
Jimmy Savile's Scottish holiday home, Alt Na Reigh, was vandalised overnight. The Glencoe house in the Highlands was painted with abusive slogans.
According to BBC News, police at Fort William said the house was painted with abusive slogans. The slogans include "Jimmy The Beast".
This is not the first expression of public anger against the former star. A commemorative plaque in Scarborough was daubed with the words "paedophile" and "rapist' before being removed. As reported by Digital Journal, Savile's family felt constrained to have his gravestone removed, broken up and disposed of in a landfill site.
Other memorials to Savile have also been removed, including his name from the Civic Hall in his native Leeds. However, the most bizarre example of how unacceptable the name of this once immensely popular star has become is the case of the Happy Lovers sex shop, which is to remove a brick due to its association with him. On Sunday reports the owner, Sub Indran, said that he did not want the shop associated with such behaviour. He added:
We are one of the cleanest sex shops in the industry and are very careful about (what) we sell.
Ironically, last year local councillor, Ken Lynch, was demanding the removal of the brick on the ground that it was an insult to Savile.
