In Hollie’s birthday month and taking advantage of the ‘Savile surge’, now is the ideal time for this campaign to go fully public at last, starting with a challenge the BBC as to why they pulled the documentary programme about Hollie in July 2009 just as it was about to air on BBC Frontline Scotland and BBC Radio Scotland and thereafter on Panorama.
Who gave the order to pull it and what were the reasons? Mark Daly the producer told Anne at the time they couldn’t go ahead after all “or we’ll lose our jobs” but then a few weeks later he denied he’d said that.
The BBC continue to sit on a lot of crucial information about the case collected by Daly in 2009. He seems to have had some very special relationship with the Crown Office. For example, he managed to get hold of the autopsy report on Anne’s brother’s death which she herself had been pressing for for 12 years yet it had been continuously withheld, despite her being Roy’s next-of-kin. It was only thanks to Robert’s help that she finally laid hands on it in December 2009, yet Daly had got hold of it months earlier! Then, Daly very quickly found out all about the incident in 1997 when Greg was arrested for ‘lewd & libidinous’
behaviour, details of which Anne to this day has not been permitted to know, such as who was the Sheriff who after 3 admissions to the court let Greg off with an admonishment? Could that by any chance have been Sheriff Buchanan?! And she also suspects that Daly obtained details on her unlawful sectioning in 2000 to which again she herself is not privy.
In other words, the BBC are very much implicated in the cover-up of Hollie’s abuse and we need to start pressing them for answers to questions as to what they know about the case that they are withholding from the two ladies and the public.
(Incidentally, HGH (the Hollie Greig Hoax so-called team) also seem to have the knack of obtaining confidential information on Hollie’s case).
Friday’s demo will be at the HQ of BBC Television, 201 Wood Lane
London W12 (Wood Lane tube on Hammersmith & City line) from 11 am to 2
pm. We’ve been denied permission to process around the complex, for example to visit the offices of Panorama or of Children in Need, unfortunately. We’re only allowed to stand opposite the main entrance to the Television Centre on the other side of the road, not even outside the entrance itself. It appears the personnel have had enough of being harangued by the public as they go in and out of the building!
Another sensitive point is that BBC Children in Need airs that evening – well of course, that’s the reason for our being there on this particular day! We’re going to find out if the BBC is going to do something to help children in need of being rescued from paedophiles NOW, not 20 or 30 years ago, bearing very much in mind that Denis & Greg Mackie are still at large in Portugal and we fear, still terrorising small girls. And who might they be hanging out with these days, and who might be giving them cover??
A propos, Esther Rantzen has been asked many times for help with Hollie’s campaign but being a close friend of She Who Cannot Be Named she’s somewhat compromised. OK, so now we’ll go around her and ask current Chairman Stevie Spring & colleagues if they will help Hollie get justice and help keep all the other little Hollies safe from now on, please?
BBC assistance in getting justice for Hollie/protecting children NOW would be a marvellous way for the Corporation to recoup the moral high ground which is exactly what’s needed as Aunty flounders ever deeper into the mire…
* Hollie’s birthday is actually a week later, Friday 23rd November and she’ll be 33. If anyone would like to send her a card please contact us and we’ll give you the address. She’ll be thrilled to get a little shower of cards, like the last 2 years! Thank you.
