He sounds great

 

We went on a school trip to Alnmouth in the 70’s and there were two pubs in the place. We were firmly warned that we weren’t allowed in the one the teachers would be drinking in. I was 14.

I see the TV companies working with Noel Clarke have fucked him off until the allegations against him are investigated which is fair enough. However, there are also calls not to show the final episode of Viewpoint which has been airing on ITV this week. 
 

So they’ve shown the first four episodes Monday to Thursday and the final one is tonight, is it just me or does it seem crazy not to show it when you’ve already aired the first four? What about the other actors in the show?

Television production companies have halted their work with the actor and director Noel Clarke after the Guardian published detailed allegations of sexual harassment against him.

 

On Thursday night, the Guardian described the accounts of 20 women who claim Clarke sexually harassed them. The director, who first came to fame for his Kidulthood series of films, strongly denies the accusations, which were made shortly after Bafta announced that it planned to give Clarke a special award for outstanding British contribution to cinema.

 

Sky said it stopped work on the forthcoming series of the award-winning police show Bulletproof, which was created by and also stars Clarke, after reading the allegations.

 

It said: “Sky stands against all forms of sexual harassment and bullying and takes any allegations of this nature extremely seriously. Effective immediately, we have halted Noel Clarke’s involvement in any future Sky productions.”

 

Vertigo Films, the UK producer behind Bulletproof, said in a statement: “We are devastated to hear about these allegations and have launched an urgent investigation to find out if any apply to any Vertigo Films productions. Our immediate concern is for any cast or crew who may have had a negative experience on set.

 

It said it had not received any complaints but encouraged anyone affected to get in contact. It said: “Effective immediately, Noel Clarke is removed from any Vertigo Films production.”

 

ITV has yet to comment on whether it will show the final episode of Clarke’s new show, Viewpoint, which is due to be broadcast on Friday night. The five-part programme is being shown in a prestigious 9pm slot every night this week. On Friday morning, the channel was still showing promotional clips for the concluding programme even as the channel’s news programmes reported the allegations against Clarke.

 

Michaela Coel, whose award-winning BBC series I May Destroy You was influenced by her experience of sexual assault in the television industry, also publicly offered her backing for the individuals who spoke to the Guardian.

 

“I am here to offer great support for the 20 brave women who have come forward; those who have shared their identities with us, but also those who have preferred to use an alias.

 

“Speaking about these incidents takes a lot of strength because some call them ‘grey areas’. They are however far from grey. These behaviours are unprofessional, violent, and can destroy a person’s perception of themselves, their places in the world and their career irreparably. I have shared to show solidarity, to express my belief in them and to stand with them in their indignation. I applaud the Guardian and its journalists for investigating and publishing this story.”

 

Clarke has denied all but one of the claims made by the Guardian and said in a statement: “If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise. I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

ITV have decided to pull it. I’ve been watching it and am pissed off I won’t get to find out what happens.

Well, they need to immediately keep people safe as there's a potential sex offender involved, so not showing a programme that was recorded months ago will really help there...

Just seen this in The Guardian. 
 


The decision to pull the finale of a drama series from a mainstream television channel for off-screen reasons at the last minute is highly unusual. The broadcaster said the final episode would be made briefly available on its ITV Hub streaming service for viewers who wanted to see how the story concluded.

Some banter about Borrowman being next up, would be happy to see him cancelled the fucking oddball fuck.

Apparently he keeps getting his knob out on every set he's worked on. And groping young lads as well as being a diva twat screaming at people.

 

He's such an annoying OTT cunt

You want to get yourself one of this new fangled dvd players Tone, keep the VHS player though, I reckon you can sell that to hipsters in a few years for a tidy sum.

Well if he gets convicted you’ll have as much chance of selling it as I did with Gary Glitters Greatest Hits

Never watched either of them, but judging by the reactions it might have been better if the last episodes of Game of Thrones and Line of Duty had been cancelled.

And so to today’s offering from budding Dick Whittington and all round top fox, Laurence Fox.

It seems Mr Free Speech Fox believes having the freedom to say what you want doesn't apply to those working in the public sector, who should just keep their mouths shut, get on with it and be grateful that grifters like Fox are funding them.

I'm just so tired of these people, what exhausts me the most is that it's not even genuine, it's actually a 'job', in modern Britain and the USA, saying inflamatory shit is actually a career option when your career hits the skids, something that gets you called on radio shows and Questiontime and lets you sell mugs and keyrings. If that's not fall of Rome shit, I really don't know what is. 

 

"All fat people should be gassed"

 

"OMG can't believe he/she said that"

 

"Hi it's Pandora fuckbucket here from Newsnight, would you come on our show for three grand?"

 

"yes please."
