Ahmed out of chokey

So, Lord Ahmed gets off after just 16 days of a 12 week sentence.

…because of the “exceptional” personal mitigation in his case, Lady Justice Hallett said the court was able to take the step of suspending the sentence for 12 months.

Lord Ahmed’s barrister, Jeremy Baker QC, had argued the jail sentence could “irreparably and permanently” damage Lord Ahmed’s ability to carry out community work in the future.

Somehow, I’m not surprised…

OK, time for another cheap shot at the Daily Mail…I haven’t slagged them off properly for a while.

New row for BBC as Jonathan Ross returns to plum role of  Baftas host two weeks after suspension ends

The BBC was last night embroiled in a fresh row over Jonathan Ross after it emerged he will host the prestigious Orange British Academy Film Awards (Baftas) on BBC1 – just two weeks after returning to work from suspension.

The controversial presenter has been handed back the plum role presenting Britain’s answer to the Oscars despite public and political outrage over his lewd phone calls to actor Andrew Sachs.

This story is so typical of the kneejerk reaction that passes for news and comment in this piece of tabloid shit.

The floppy-haired scamp’s suspension was for 12 weeks, so keep him off the air for any longer and it’s not a 12 week suspension, it’s more than 12 weeks.

So, now we have to explain simple maths to the fuckwitted rag…

What’s the BBC supposed to do?

Suspend him for 12 weeks but just ignore him for a further month on the off chance he won’t notice?

And it’s not as if he’s been given a new job – Ross has done the BAFTAs gig before.

So, what would the Mail like to happen to Ross?

Maybe come back to work and find a picture of a penis scrawled on his office door?

A drawing pin left on his chair?

How about allowing him back on our screens but only every other week at 2am on BBC 4 presenting a program about llama rearing?

Of course, like the moralising heap of excrement that it is, the Mail would like Ross to vanish from the airwaves altogether – but he’s too popular.

Thank fuck…

Oh, and Dacre hasn’t got a gong – but Ross has…har-de-har…
