[scapegoats] while ross keeps his job

Jonathan Ross, 12 weeks while Brand and Douglas must depart? That stinks.

Among BBC staff, there is anger that she has been forced to fall on her sword, while Jonathan Ross clings on to his job.

Not just among BBC staff, I suspect. The test of what the public really thinks, whether they have the courage of their convictions, is at the end of the 12 weeks.

Will you boycott the show when Ross returns or will you keep watching regardless?

It's been a long time since I last watched his show, James. I have never been a fan of his and his radio show is the most obnoxious pile of rubbish you could want to hear.

As I have said at my place, he should have been fired. The BBC lack the guts, but there is no surprise there.

PS: There was a word out of place in my last comment, and it made the sentence confusing. That's why I deleted it.

There was a time when if you could not speak the Queen's English the BBC would not employ you.

This twit cannot even speak pwoper and is paid £18M.

Perhaps they should Brand his tongue?


In have read that Russell Brand resigned over the matter.
Not sure who Douglas is.

I really think he'll have to bow to public pressure in the end because his is a business that thrives on ratings.
