(satire – possibly)
Authorities have expressed relief at the success of a multi-million pound operation to prevent any references to Jimmy Savile taking place during the funeral of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher last week and the London Marathon today.
Government and public security officials were concerned that serious incidents of Savile’s name being mentioned could take place during the mass public events after close links were unearthed between the disgraced paedophile TV presenter and the former prime minister.
And in a shocking revelation, unnamed MI5 officials have also confirmed off the record that they believe there is substantial evidence to conclude that Savile had regularly taken part in marathons across the country – including the London marathon.
However, a massive behind-the-scenes security operation put in place before both events enabled both mass public events to pass without any major incidents of Jimmy Savile being mentioned by anyone anywhere at all.
