A very British story. Where would we be without investigations and inquiries? In the 90's probably

The BBC have announced that the BBC will investigate the BBC after the BBC dropped a BBC report last year into several stories of alleged abuse by Jimmy Savile at the BBC.

BBC political programme Newsnight carried out a six week investigation last year into late BBC presenter Jimmy Savile's alleged abuse of youngsters on BBC premises. However, in December 2011 the BBC report was dropped before airing on BBC political programme Newsnight.

This prompted BBC political programme Panorama to conduct it's own investigation into BBC political programme Newsnight as to why it failed to complete it's own investigation.

Newsnight editor Peter Rippon was responsible for the report being dropped from the show, angering mother Angela, and has 'stepped aside' while a wider Police, you guessed it, Inquiry takes place into Newsnights handling of the original investigation.

It is unclear whether the Police inquiry will include investigating why the Police and the State have such a hard-on for inquiries, which merely muddy waters, delay justice and provide a smokescreen for the powerful.
