So have I got this right? You can be named as the protector of a 12 year old child, but choose instead to abduct him and his brother, and then imprison them and have them murdered. You can destroy the reputation of your brother's widow and declare your nephews to be illegitimate, just so you can usurp the throne. You can have your critics imprisoned and executed without trial. All these things, but as long as you  have good connections and died centuries ago, not only can all these things be forgiven, but your evil deeds can be expunged, you can receive a hero's burial, a girl guide may bear your crown, thousands could line the streets in your honour, the Queen may write you a tribute, academics may indulge in extraordinary feats of revisionism, bishops may fawn over you and cathedrals might have recourse to the courts to secure the prize of housing your body. I wonder if this is what's in store for Savile in 500 years?
