The key phrase in Andrew O'Hagan's enormously important think-piece on the Jimmy Savile/BBC pederasty scandal comes about halfway through its seven thousand words:
"Whatever else it has been in the past, paedophilia was always an institutional disorder, in the sense that it has thrived in covert worlds with powerful elites. Boarding schools and hospitals, yes, churches certainly, but also in our premier entertainment labyrinths."
Hits the nail on the head, right there. Of course, the rest of "Light Entertainment" is very much worth reading.
