HE IS buried in a Yorkshire grave overlooking the North Sea, the grave's ostentatious headstone recently deemed offensive and obliterated and sent to landfill.
There is talk of his body being exhumed from the council cemetery at Scarborough and cremated to placate relatives who find his rotting corpse's close proximity to their loved ones intolerable.
His nephew is such a fervent supporter of the idea that it would not surprise to see him with a shovel in hand and his uncle under foot, posing for the media looking like he was doing the world the biggest favour.
No one, it seems, would care if the remains of the fallen BBC icon, Sir James "Jimmy" Savile, were treated this way.
Dead for a year, Savile recently was outed as a voracious predatory pedophile who potentially abused hundreds of children over many years.
He is estimated to have raised more than $61 million for charity, but no one gives a whit about that now and rightly so.
On May 1 last year, the body of a man was exhumed from the Vatican grotto and placed at the foot of the high altar in St Peter's Basilica.
In his lifetime, the man impacted positively on thousands of lives, but failed to act as his underlings sexually abused thousands of children
The relocation of his body was done because his beatification - a step in the process to sainthood - was hastened dramatically despite the stench of his inaction over the rampant child abuse lingering like a pedophile at a swimming pool.
If Hell exists, Savile is there.
Why do so many people automatically assume Pope John Paul II is in Heaven?
