  • Mantel's Right Royal Calumny - Beatrix Campbell
    body is to breed Yes But there is more Being seen is not just about being visible indeed it is hardly that and I don t really share Mantel s observation that we stare at royalty to find antiquity to find the special When we stare aren t we searching for something else Aren t we struggling with that paradox of monarchism the evidence that they are not so much immortal as merely mortal Aren t we searching for something about them that is human That finally is the problem our democracy warrants their sovereignty and yet we worry about the price THEY pay Not the price we pay for their indulgences not the price we pay for our compromised unfinished democracy for our abjection as subjects rather than citizens No the price they pay for the seeming pointlessness of their privilege what Mantel describes as the airy enclosure that is always a cage The paradox is that when they show their humanity they are in trouble Being seen in the royal firmament is never to show their humanity it is about the parade as propaganda it is about being seen as superior as sovereign Share this Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Google Email Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Comment Current Affairs News and tagged duchess of cambridge hilary mantel kate middleton london review of books royal bodies royalty on February 19 2013 by Beatrix Campbell Post navigation JODIE FOSTER FOREVER THE ACCUSED HEROINES AND HUBRIS One thought on Mantel s Right Royal Calumny R Read February 19 2013 at 6 04 pm Nice piece Bea I think it is about both the price they pay AND the price we pay There is room to worry about both http www bbc co uk programmes p014n2gc Go 1 hr

    Don t launch inquiries on the back of lurid claims David Aaronovitch Gesturing towards new knowledge abuse Aaronovitch then cautions But it seems we have had to pay an unnecessary price for our new understanding In Cleveland in the late 1980s alongside real abusers completely innocent people were deprived of their children on the basis of the beliefs and a faulty diagnosis of a paediatrician and social worker Not long afterwards there was panic on Orkney and in cities such as Rochdale and Nottingham amid claims that there were networks of abusers using satanic rituals as a pretext for acts of abuse including infanticide and cannibalism Books were written front pages were splashed serious conferences convened in which dark caverns and human sacrifice were earnestly discussed The unattractive because complicating truth is that sometimes people do lie about being abused When it all collapsed as it had to It doesn t matter that this stuff is punctuated by historical inaccuracies and a repetition of the mass hysteria moral panic line That never matters What matters is what this kind of stuff is NOT interested in and what it is NOT about Andrew O Hagan threw no light on the questions thrown up by Jimmy Savile perhaps because is not interested in child abuse nor in how easy it is to get away with it His rendition of Savile as a man made to the public s specifications ignores the other publics who have been challenging marauders like Savile British society is not homogenous it is fissured by sexual abuse how it happens to whom and how it comes to be known Why did the BBC harbour Savile What was it about his horrible persona that the BBC wanted Was his allure precisely misanthropy and misogyny It was not the public it was the BBC that made a public according to Savile s specifications The broadcasting media do not reflect public taste they participate in the creation of it Crucially his reputation and room for maneouvre were secured by both the BBC and the Big Society Savile traded on the NHS and schools dependence on charity Without charity he would have been just another coarse grotty DJ Without the Big Society he would not have been showered with virtue blessed by popes and princes and politicians Without the Big Society he would not have been given the keys to any hospital school or prison Where would Savile have been without the counter revolution from the late 80s apparently endorsed by Aaronivitch against evidence of sexual crimes against children O Hagan s contempt for so called political correctness and the instant invocation of terms such as moral panic and obsession whenever child abuse is aired has licensed grumpy old and young men to grope whoever they like to proclaim the right to be right off and swank about it on telly Savile s savvy access to almost anywhere warehousing vulnerable people from children to patients and prisoners is a model of grooming
