Dead sacked about going to Itchy & Scratchyland!
either go back to his stupid job or away from it. whatever will keep him out of my line of vision longest.
jelly & icecream
at least shoot richard hammond too
Until I saw that interview that bloke from Guido Fawkes with the really fat head. Now I'll be glad he gets sacked just because it will annoy him.
"Sacked off going to Itchy & Scratchy Land."
But overall, winner.
Lisa: Mom, Dad, Bart’s dead!
(Lisa runs into the room with Bart on a wagon and Marge and Homer both gasp.)
Bart: That’s right, dead serious about going to Itchy and Scratchy Land!
and it makes sense in English too.
who apparently believe they'd get away with lamping someone at work
didn't want to believe he had actually lamped the guy. Or like me, strongly suspected he had, but held counsel pending the outcome of the investigation. (worth noting there had been no suggestion of police involvement or anything like that- which may well change now).
Turns out that, while he has not been found guilty of an assault by a court of law, or charged with an offence, his internel work investigation have concluded it happened, and it was clearly serious enough, and with enough evidence on which to send him packing. it's really heartening that they took a stand against him. So often shite like this gets swept under the carpet.
of course, now we will have to bear witness to an almighty bidding war between sky/ Netflix/ whoever else, to sign him.
you've got to respect her troll game. CG must be in awe.
Will give him more free time for his run at PM as UKIP/Independant
what is damning about it? Clarkson reported it himself and confessed, the report verified the various accounts, they lined up, correct procedure was formed. Who does it damn and how?
but it is remarkable that people are willing to put their faces and real names next to stuff like this.
Just not getting his contract renewed.
where if he's sacked they have to pay him off but if contract expires then he just walks? (never understood the logic of that).
Probably easier to wait until the contract on it ends then sell him the show so he can take the whole #brand off to sky for a gazillion pounds or whatver, as if anyone actually ever watches sky1 ffs.
That's a sacking.
Anyone saying the BBC handled this badly... bollocks. When that happens you suspend someone, investigate it and act on the findings. I saw so many people say "they handled it badly because this shouldn't have been drawn out in public"... well, it wasn't. They did the standard stuff any employer would do - as above. The "public" bit was the disproportionate amount of attention this got everywhere, in the interim. And the BBC were obliged to report on that. I mean, I understand why it became public interest, which isn't the same as me agreeing that it should have done.
Anyway, boo hoo and all that, because while it's the right decision I imagine the networks are getting out their chequebooks as we speak, and he'll now spend the rest of his working life slagging off the BBC in his Sunday Times columns too. Great news for him, utter tedium for people who give a shit about decency and get fed up of being told it's a lefty conspiracy/political correctness gone mad and all that bollocks. HE VERBALLY AND PHYSICALLY ABUSED A COLLEAGUE.
(The channel that is, sexybum's always happy.)
