Victims of Savile fury at PM slur

- BY ALETHA ADU Political Correspond­ent

MANY victims of Jimmy Savile are “appalled” by Boris Johnson’s Commons slur against Keir Starmer.

The PM lashed out at the Labour leader in a debate on lockdown parties in Downing Street, accusing him of failing to prosecute paedophile Savile in 2009 when he was head of the prosecutio­n service.

Slater and Gordon lawyer Richard Scorer said many victims feel Mr Johnson used them to climb out of a “political hole”.

He said: “[The victims] are universall­y appalled and disgusted by those remarks and want him to apologise.”

He added the accusation­s against Mr Starmer are “completely untrue”.
