Article copied&pasted from the Sundays Mercury newspaper Operation Yewtree cops investigating historic sex abuse are to quiz two more British icons, the Sunday Mercury can reveal today. One is a popular media celebrity and the other a high-profile public figure. Allegations about both men have been passed to the police by Midland journalist Mark Williams- Thomas, the investigator whose TV documentary finally exposed Jimmy Savile as a paedophile, and who has been working with the Yewtree probe. “These are two very high-profile individuals who, in due course, will be subject to criminal investigations,” says the investigator, formerly from Solihull. “One is someone who is in the media world, the other has a high public profile.” Like thousands of children growing up in the Midlands in the 1970s, Mark Williams- Thomas saw Savile on TV presenting his Jim’ll Fix It Show. He never met the DJ nor formed a particular opinion of him – apart from observing that he was “a bit weird”. But he is the ma ...

'We are still committed to giving victims a choice': Operation Yewtree squad defiant after DLT not guilty verdicts
BRITAIN’S top cop yesterday defended his force’s probe into claims Dave Lee Travis assaulted 11 women, after the case was branded a “witch-hunt”. Scotland Yard Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe insisted that his officers did the right thing by listening to the alleged victims and investigating their claims. It is the first Operation Yewtree case to go before a jury since the probe was set up in October 2012, in the wake of stinging criticism of the police’s failure to nail paedophile Jimmy Savile. Before Travis was cleared of 12 of the 14 counts, Sir Bernard said: “If a victim comes to us and makes an allegation they deserve to have a thorough investigation. “In fact, one of the criticisms of Yewtree is that in the past, victims have been turned away and not listened to. “We are caught both ways. If we take the victims seriously but there is no further action we could be criticised for being too aggressive. Yet if we ignore the victims and send them away they would say this is a repeat of ex ...

British disc jockey Dave Lee Travis, né David Patrick Griffin, found not guilty of one dozen counts of indecent assault, and awaiting possible retrial on one further count of same as well as one count of sexual assault. Alleged victims were as young as fifteen at the times of allegation. He has admitted adultery and may face civil action related to his not-guilty verdicts, with potential for renumeration of as much as GBP£1,000 or more per offence. Travis' is the first case to go to a jury since the inception of Operation YEWTREE, a UK police response to failure to fully investigate Sir James Savile, posthumously accused of 214 counts including twenty-six counts of rape, sixteen of the alleged victims aged fifteen or less and four of those aged nine or less. Of fifteen other men arrested, one has been killed, two are set to face trial, seven are on bail, and five have been released without charge. Travis is on bail as well, pending his hearing February 24th. Assistant Chief Executive of the charity Vict ...

THE STORY OF ST.VALENTINE St Valentine was the patron St of Love .The story of St. Valentine has two different versions - the Protestant and the Catholic one. During the lifetime of Valentine, the golden era of Roman empire had almost come to an end.Lack of quality administrators led to frequent civil strife. Education declined,taxation increased and trade witnessed a very bad time. The Roman empire faced crisis from all sides, from the Gauls, Slavs, Huns, Turks and Mongolians from Northern Europe and Asia. The empire had grown too large to be shielded from external aggression and internal chaos with existing forces. More and more capable men were required to be recruited as soldiers and officers to protect the nation from takeover. When Claudius became the emperor, he felt that married men were more emotionally attached to their families, and so, would not make good soldiers. He believed that marriage made the men weak. So he issued an edict forbidding marriage to assure quality soldiers. St Valentine St ...

You have to wonder how good a task force (Operation Yewtree) is when it seems to be heavily funded and well resourced, and as it seems to the general public that they appear to be getting results. But as a lot of their People of interest seem to be famous personalities and getting on in life and also they are people that we as kids grew up with, looked up too and were our generational role models. I have to now start to question whether or not this is turning into some vicious witch hunt that seems to be going nowhere apart from destroying peoples reputations and on and off screen careers. Is this becoming all about that we missed getting Jimmy Saville even though his alleged behaviour was blatant and in your face and many blind eyes were possibly turned due to his celebrity status. I find it sad that at this stage the operation has seen 16 people arrested and only four people being charged. Of those David Smith never made it to trial as he committed suicide, Max Clifford has pleaded not guilty and so ...

Operation yewtree hasn't been a success has it?
Operation Yewtree The intention of the campaign is a good idea but as many have said that even if the assaults took place that after this time it will always be difficult to get a conviction. I believe that if those making the accusations were assaulted then they have every right to feel injustice. The times that these incidents may have taken place were different times when everyone had a strange uncle or someone they felt uncomfortable with. But back then it was not possible to talk to peers about these things. I find that spending the money on trying to get a conviction now maybe somewhat futile. I feel that money could be better spent on making sure that the young are protected now and in the future. But please don't think that I in any way condone the crimes that may have occurred as I find them simply disgusting and hope that we can all go on trying to ensure these things do not happen again.
Questions raised about the future of Operation Yewtree after the first trial results in not guilty verdicts for Dave Lee Travis
The decision to prosecute historic sex abuse cases involving celebrity defendants has been called into question after veteran DJ Dave Lee Travis was acquitted of 12 sexual assault charges in the first high-profile trial brought by Operation Yewtree.

Can we just dismantle Operation Yewtree, right now? I always thought the DLT thing was *** DLT had to sell his house to pay his legal bills and was found Not guilty on all counts, reputation in tatters, radio career over and Yewtree is still looking for targets. Face it boys you didn't catch Jimmy Saville. Move on and do some real detecting.
Another celeb acquitted of all charges. How much of tax payers money has been wasted on this Operation Yewtree?! I feel sorry for the 'victims' if their claims were genuine and insufficient evidence or incompetent prosecution led to these verdicts. DLT said that there were no winners today...I think the legal firms receiving their legal fees would beg to differ. Sorry for a moment of seriousness...carry on looking at your pictures of dogs, drinking games etc etc
Can't help but think no one will win with this Operation Yewtree jazz. Those being cleared have had their names dragged through the mud and reputations ruined. And genuine rape victims will be taken even less seriously. A no win situation all round.
Strange another entertainer gets cleared off sexual charges, what's going on then ? were they hoping it would stop operation yewtree from investigating bent politicians ? and establishment people? .
Well this operation YEWTREE seems to have been money well spent.. Dave Lee Travis cleared today too ,.. quite correctly in my opinion.. the ''sex offences'' he was said to have committed were , pinching someones bum in the 70's early 80's and basically getting in someones personal space.. but ffs.. lets get it in context.. a pinched butt isnt the same as a rape!! it belittles the words sex attack when its used for the more stupid than malicious offences.. late 70's early 80's a lot of guys pinched butts.. dont make it right but time and expectations was different then.. now thru a climate of fear of lawsuits .. we all stay ten yards from each other.. unless we're married, then its twenty yards.. but ffs .. while all these crap historic sex cases are going on, viscious, hate filled serious attacks are not getting to court... historic or not.. if a man grabs ya bum and you object.. loudly tell him to fook off and make a show of him... he wont do it again... if he does.. kick him in the nuts... and if he tri ...
So has Operation Yewtree actually managed to charge and convict anyone? Hundreds of man hours, thousands of pounds that lead to loads of 70's celebs being questioned and released due to lack of evidence, and only managed to catch Jimmy Saville..several years after he died. Really great work there, everyone.
How much of our money has been wasted on Operation Yewtree?

Freddie Starr arrested over new sex offence allegations Freddie Starr has been arrested over new sexual offences allegations. Officers working on Operation Yewtree, set up following the Jimmy Savile child sex abuse scandal, spoke to the 71-year-old at a Warwickshire police station. Starr denies all charges and has been released on bail until February. The comedian was previously arrested in November 2012 over claims falling under the 'Savile and others' section of the investigations. He was arrested again in April 2013 over allegations not related to Savile. Scotland Yard has confirmed that the new arrest is also part of the "others" strand of the Operation Yewtree inquiry.

Who else talks to 'get a job' Bob Lambert, the nomad of Portishead High Street? He started talking to me about BBC's Robin Hood. "I don't watch the telly, Bob". I haven't got a license." He seemed genuinely surprised when I asked if Alf Garnet was still a racist. He was perplexed when I asked if Fletch and Godber had gone straight. He was frustrated when I asked if Rigsby had ever given Miss Jones a good seeing to. And he stormed off when I asked if he thought Dusty Bin would lose his prime-time, Saturday night slot if Operation Yewtree turned their attention to him.
With all the Operation Yewtree stuff that's been going on lately - you know, with Jimmy Saville, Rolf Harris, and Ken Barlow, why has nobody pulled Ian Krankie in for questioning yet??? The man's married to a schoolboy for feck sake... How the *** is he not a suspect?

Oh aye, no bother Pat ya *** never mind winning their games, just give wee Lenny and his merry men a trophy because you feel sorry for them! Wee *** Operation Yewtree will be at your door soon ya spooky wee ***
'Operation Yewtree' is like 'Highlander'. I imagine all the 1970's entertainers being hauled in by police leading to a final showdown between Jim Davidson and Matthew Corbitt. I can imagine bruce forsyth being Corbitt's 'Ramirez'. "There can be only one!"
Wenger should be calling Operation Yewtree, he's been thoroughly abused in the Liverpool area today.
*** OF A LOT OF MONEY FOR A REALITY SHOW. Soldiers and others out there putting their life on the line for PEANUTS compaired to £200.000. Jim Davidson had just £761 in the bank prior to his appearance on 'Celebrity Big Brother', according to reports. The comedian, who received a £200,000 fee for being on the show, said that he lost hundreds of thousands of pounds in earnings and legal fees after he was arrested by Operation Yewtree.
Operation Yewtree, apparently Basil Brush is preparing to leave the country.
As I said when operation Yewtree started as a witch hunt for celebrities, they would make the whole thing a farce, and in by doing so they would discourage other victims from coming forward against what I believe is the real horror yet to unfold in Britain about Peadophiles, the Justice system, I reckon there are several Judges, high profile Police officers and attorneys all involved in a paedophile ring, which would explain low sentences and botched investigations. By arresting charging and then finding not guilty or releasing loads of celebrities they are completely discrediting and discouraging any historical abuse victims from coming forward to seek justice. Of all the people arrested and accused surrounding Operation Yewtree, how many have been brought to Justice, Ken Roache was foiund not guilty this week, before that was another Corrie actor, most of the cases against BBC actors, producers or employees are either still to be brought to court or have already been dropped due to lack of evidence. For ...
Waiting for Buzzfeed to post "Which Operation Yewtree character are you?"
With Bill Roache, Michael Le Vell, Andrew Lansel all found Not Guilty, you wonder if "Operation Yewtree" is starting to fall apart...
The comedian was first arrested over a year ago by detectives from Operation Yewtree, the investigation launched in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal
Operation Yewtree has improved the reruns of immensely by increasing the proprtion of David "Kid" Jensen on screen.
So Rolf Harris, Dave Lee Travis AND William Roache all end up in court on the same day? Does this mean Operation Yewtree has gained the ability to use Outlook or is there a more prosaic explanation?
Big day for Operation Yewtree. Ken Barlow and Dave Lee Travis in court, Rolf Harris pleads not guilty, Freddie Star just been re-arrested, and rumour has it Police are on way to arrest Tim Wright and Lee Gaterell which both are less of a shock!
since all this Operation Yewtree stuff I've automatically assumed the Chuckle Brothers to be paedophiles, which is perhaps unfair
Operation Yewtree: You have to pick stuff out of the corpse of Jimmy Savile without setting off the alarm.
Why is Jim Davidson on Am I confusing him with someone else or was he not a suspect under operation yewtree???
I think I'd rather have heard that Lionel Blair'd been picked up by Operation Yewtree than Celebrity Big Brother. Especially after his appearance in Extras.
NEW BB FORMAT - "Hitler's Bunker" - Put all the people from operation Yewtree in an underground chamber with a cyanide capsule…
Why is Lionel Blair trending? Aww! It seems in an effort to evade 'operation yewtree' he's entered the Big Brothel house. Clever Lionel!
he got arrested in operation yewtree and denied all so got to got free... Didn't say he was innocent just that he denied all.
Hasn't Lionel Blair been caught by operation yet?
I haven't seen this many celebrities in handcuffs since the Operation Yewtree officers raided the BBC. Such a good launch night
. Jimbo Davidson is involved so . Operation Yewtree is looking in2 it.
Top of the Pops 1979 on BBC 4 right now or as Scotland Yard call it 'Operation Yewtree ' training opportunity.
was meant to be in last year but got arrested under that operation Yewtree.
Just my thoughts on Celebrity Big Brother, I reckon it might be being run by Operation Yewtree police officers? Would make things easy wouldn't it?
Jim, i think you'll find Operation Yewtree didnt have enough evidence, not that there was none.
Suppose it keeps Operation Yewtree off his back for a few weeks.Lionel Blair will be banged up by Christmas 2014!!
Great Celebrity Big Brother is on. Where can I put a bet on for when operation Yewtree gets mentioned
People forget Jim Davidson was arrested for being a nonce. May of been cleared but I'm not convinced.. Operation YEWTREE!
For a fact operation yewtree will be waiting for Lionel Blair when he comes out
Alan Hansen quits MOTD. If this is to do with Operation Yewtree, can imagine The Sun headline "You can't win anything with kids, Alan!"
Opportunity to handcuff Davidson to someone from Operation Yewtree for a joke, squandered.
big brother 2014... operation Yewtree televised... bet Lionel fiddles with Oli before Sunday
Is Celebrity Big Brother a secret holding area for Operation Yewtree detectives with Lionel Blair and Jim Davidson in there
Jim Davidson and Lionel Blair probably thought Operation Yewtree was back when they got to the CBB house
Odds on Lionel Blair dying or being arrested in operation Yewtree before CBB has finished? Or both.
Operation Yewtree getting a leg up tonight with contestants.
You know police cuts are going too far when the operation yewtree cops are having to moonlight as CBB casting directors.

Operation Yewtree team will be raiding the Celeb Big Brother house tonight to get Lionel and Jim!
So when is Lionel Blair getting arrested by Operation Yewtree?

Lionel Blair next up for operation yewtree??
My pal just texted and told me that Jim Davidson walked into the Celebrity Big Brother House and introduced himself by saying 'I would have been in last year but I was arrested by the officers from Operation Yewtree'. This is exactly why we launched our telly last year but I must admit that I kind of want to see it, much like when everyone drives slow past a carcrash on the motorway, you know it's wrong but you have to do it anyway.
Jim Davidson in big bro house; keeps operation yewtree off his case...
So Jim Davidson has gone into the Celeb Big Brother house. Maybe they're going to put all the people investigated under Operation Yewtree in there and we can vote what sort of horrific punishment they'll suffer each week. Just an idea...
If you put me in the BB house with that sexist pig Jim Davidson he'd pure get launched over the fence. Operation yewtree should have tried a bit harder with that one!
'Im actually a year late as last year I was arrested as part of operation yewtree' ha
CBB looks to be Operation Yewtree themed this year

Simon's laptop has been to see an Apple Genius today, only a matter of time before Operation Yewtree is busting down the front door.
I come from a generation were you could tell a British woman you had a Ministry 12 Inch and she would not report you to Operation Yewtree.
"Today we're going to learn what the Song of Solomon tells us about sharing!" I think that if that became a real thing on a children's programme, Operation Yewtree would look like it just wasn't trying...
Walking with the Promise of God - God's way or the World? Are you a tempter? Do you offer those things to others who are too weak to refuse the temptation? Be aware! "One day Jesus said to his disciples, ‘There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting! It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin. So watch yourselves!" Luke 17:1-3a Two days ago we talked about Operation Yewtree and those who have allegedly been involved in child abuse. I mention it again because pictures have appeared in the press of personalities wearing OBEs or whatever around their necks following investitures at Buckingham Palace. To anybody guilty of leading children or young people astray Jesus is saying swap the gong for a millstone and be thrown into the sea because that would be better than the fate that awaits you! Such an individual would need to throw themselves upon God's mercy in ...

Watching some of these Audience With . shows being relegated, looking at the audience there, Operation Yewtree could have rounded up most of them in one night!
