I have no wish to add to the mountain of words written about Sir Jim of Fixit. He deserves all the abuse now being heaped upon him. No wonder his family have seen fit to try to hide his corpse.
But surely our sleb culture must take some of the blame. It was only because he was seen, and saw himself, as beyond the standards of other people that he was allowed to get away with his crimes for so many years.

  1. Although I tend to agree with this, I have to say that one thing annoying me is the rash of jokes on the lines of “Jim’ll f... it”. This makes him sound like some kind of super-stud. He wasn’t. This was a loathsome, inadequate creature who preyed on the most vulnerable in our society. Society’s shame is that it allowed, even encouraged, him. We should have locked him up in about 1950.
