That rotten decade

Watching Newsnight reporting on the latest revelations in the Jimmy Savile scandal, I can't help feeling that it is the 1960s that is also on trial.  That rotten decade with its culture of permissiveness, free love and "anything goes" created people like Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter and no doubt other celebrity gropers yet to be exposed.  And I also have the feeling that it was always going to end like this - corruption spreads until it rots everything it touches.
