IN October 1978, when Jimmy Savile was in his paedo pomp, seducing kids on the BBC with the vow that Jim’ll Fix It and spinning the discs on Radio 1, Johnny Rotten wanted to murder him.  In this clip, John Lydon talks about killing the protected Savile.

The interview features on Public Image’s album Religion Attack. This part about Savile never did make the Beeb’s final cut for broadcast:

    remember – we still do not know whether Savile was guilty or not – all we have is police and press hearsay… I would think that Johnny targeted Savile as a symbol of the ‘establishment’ … and/or because he (Savile) was an irritating t**t 🙂 … couldn’t stand him myself so I just can’t imagine why any young girl would be within ten yards of him …

      I agree. If he did kn wo what Savile was up to, why didn’t the great anarchist just say..?

    documented testimony from victims and witnesses is hardly “hearsay”…. these people have suffered enough without someone else casting doubt on what they say…

    Shame he did not get his wish to finish off Saville in view of what we now know.
