and we have to briefly liaise with his team on a campaign. Every single person on his team we/are women.
didn't stand up in court.
he'd have got in even more trouble for that.
I'm glad he's guilty.
that he had loads of dirt on many high profile people and he'd spill it if he went down?
and not just footballers sex lives then if he has any sense he'd have put it all with his solicitor to be released on the event of his conviction.
It's more a if I go down I take you all down with me. Y'know, prove the government are all shape changing lizards kind of thing.
he should have just fessed up right away
Feels like every grey haired TV bloke i recall from my younger days is getting legal proceedings against them for one grim thing after another thesedays, what a lovely bunch
1. Those poor girls
2. I hope all the people/families who's lives have been affected by all his PR guff over the years put the boot in.
almost bragging to an undercover reporter that he has a number of clients that came to him in the wake of Saville...
fuck this i'm getting a Drifter
Unlike the defendant who said he had a small penis?
You may have to stop thinking about willies for a bit.
it means that it hasn't reached a verdict, right?
And Max Clifford's penis was either "tiny" or "average-sized", right?
So the joke should be "what do max clifford and his jury have in common", right?
and as a result he's had to default on his mortgage and a number of other commitments. Therefore he's a bit short at the moment.
It was hung on some charges, not all.
to get to the other side
If I was him I'd be repatriating funds sharpish and getting a fake ID and getting myself to a country that has no extraditoin treaty with the UK. He's 71, his life in this country is OVER and he has very little to lose from fleeing.
I did a fair bit of work with him in the 90s and although I was young and maybe naive at the time (late teens / early 20s. no, he never tried to pull me) I never ever thought he was this type of person. what a terrible person.
How long is he looking at?
but I suspect it will be. I also think they'll try to appeal both the verdict and any custodial sentence, if passed down.
he has been found guilty of eight counts- each one will be assessed on its svereity separately by the judge and added together, and then a discount will be applied using various fairly conplex weighted resoning appraches (the totality principle in case you're interested.)
It's anyone's guess. If I was him I'd still make a run for it.
Or maybe he'll top himself before friday.
in front of a full jury
Isn't this just fucking BIZARRE?
which incidentally was one of the best Louis Theroux docs
i see a common denominator here. He's behind it all!!
or appeal and get off. Either way he will manage to spin it that all his victims were in on a huge witchhunt, or just silly girls who are in it for the money. And people will probably believe him.
Just horrible, always was, this just confirms it. Piers Morgan and him and Simon Cowell and all of these type of people they are all cut from the same cloth and all horrible. Why does our society give these kind of people the pedestals from which they proudly stand? Horrible.
on the radio this morning, struggling to hide is absolute joy under a sheen of professional chat.
Not nice reading at all.
creeping up on the reporter
"Not unnaturally, what she looks for is some sort of apology from you or an
acknowledgment as to what you have been responsible for. She has been
extremely upset by your public denials before trial, the reports of your attitude
during trial – laughing and shaking your head in the dock at the accusations
made against you. For my part I would add something that since the jury have
returned verdicts I have discovered that you appeared behind a reporter outside
this court whilst he was making his report of your evidence and during which you mimicked his actions in a way that was designed to trivialise these events.
I find your behaviour to be quite extraordinary and a further indication that you
show no remorse."
Pertinent to count 3-6 is the evidence of what you did to a 12 year old girl whilst she was on holiday in Puerto Cabopino. I am satisfied so that I am sure on the evidence which the jury heard that this amounted to another sexual offence against a young child. Had the offence not taken place abroad and at a time when it was not justiciable here you would have been charged with indecent assault in relation to it.
These must be largely consecutive sentences we only a little bit to totality applied. Blimey.
You will go to prison on count 3 for 12 months
On count 4 for 18 months consecutive to the sentence on count 3
On counts 5 and 6 for 24 months on each concurrently but consecutively to counts 3 and 4, making a total in respect of this victim of 4½ years
On count 8 for 6 months consecutive to the other sentences
On count 9 for 6 months and on count 10 for 21 months to run concurrently with each other but consecutively to the other sentences.
On count 11 for 15 months, to run consecutively with the other sentences.
it's unusual to see so many sentences applied consecutively. You would normally expect him to get more concurrent sentences.
concurrent means "at the same time"
so 3 + 5 = 5
instead of consecutive 3 + 5 = 8
Consecutive means they run one after the other
It is very unusual to have some many consecutive sentences from one trial with very similar offences
But I believe it to be correct, given the age of the victims, number of offences, range of offences and the period over which they took place
to the fact that the same offences committed now would carry much higher maximum sentences due to subsequent legislation.
Although that in itself is almost irrelevant. The sentences cannot have been based on guidelines passed since the offences took place
I believe that the Stuart Hall appeal ruling has heavily influenced the sentence here - new piece of case law perhaps?
Technically irrelevent perhaps, but I assume it might have had some impact on the discretionary elements?
So someone could serve 100 1 year sentences in... 1 year?
I really hope he's innocent and got sent down for doing nothing, the prick.
I hope it's a miscarriage of justice and he's not done anything wrong.
It'll hurt him even more the scumbag
I reckon it'd hurt more to be wrongly convicted than getting his comeuppance so I'd like to go with that. It also means that the victims haven't been living with awful memories all their life so it's a win win.
unless a large number of people have concocted a very elaborate lie which has stretched over many years and put themselves through a lot of personal trauma.
What a fucking sicko, and what a really shitty way of getting cheap thrills, getting girls to wank him off by pretending he was on the phone to Charles Bronson, wtf?
I know you're only having a wee laugh because there's little else in your sad life but it's a shame cause you're otherwise quite decent and funny. This is a bit below par for you pal.
(How are you, btw?)
It was a bit of an unecessary, unproductive, immature comment.
just having some wine and watching a bit of telly and that (can't do it in your voice).
The thing is, he probably doesn't even think he did anything wrong, and his actions seem to confirm this. Horrible.
Always find these so much more disturbing because of the clinical nature of the prose. Sickening stuff
Wondering now if he will dish the dirt on some of the celebs in his little black book
