Salma Heyek Accuses Harvey Weinstein.

selma hayek, harvey weinstein, newsmediaimagesThe intense media coverage of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal is where Sex and the City meets The Accused. Now, in the latest development, Hollywood actress Salma Hayek has accused Weinstein of pestering her for sex — and when she refused – threatening to kill her.

Salma claims that Harvey Weinstein has pestered her for nearly a decade. In a moving article published in the The New York Times Hayek says that her refusals of massages, showers and sex enraged Weinstein.

“ For years, he was my monster. I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no’.

No, to me taking a shower with him. No, to letting him watch me shower. No, to letting him give me a massage. No, to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage. No, to getting naked with another woman.”

Naturally Harvey Weinstein has denied everything.

In a statement issued by a spokesman Weinstein said,

“All of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired.”

It’s amazing how dirty a woman must feel when she’s forced to lie down with a pig. Weinstein is a super pig, and if he’s guilty, then he deserves to be put down permanently.

But Harvey Weinstein is not the whole story. The world’s women are. The victims.

Women of the World.

For years women of the world have felt angry and without a voice. Now, there’s a place to get themselves heard – social media.

Basically, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram users are being encouraged to bolster awareness of sexual assault by including the #MeToo hashtag with details of any unwelcome touching from straight men, straight women, gay men, gay women, anyone under twenty-one, anyone over twenty-five, birds, bees, frogs, cats or dogs.

Yes, start there. You don’t have to prove anything to get involved. Simply update your status with a #MeToo hashtag and then share your story.

I only wish I could get in on the craze. Maybe I’ll get lucky and a Starbucks barista will draw a penis on my coffee cup. Then I’ll know what it’s like.


Nigel Farage Attacks Liberal Elites

Nigel Farage,Liberal elites,When it comes to attacking the liberal elite then there’s no more persistant offender than the vaguely interesting Nigel Farage. He claims he can read their altruistic minds faster than Gary Lineker can lick ladies underwear.

Earlier today the ex-Ukip leader used an appearance on the BBC Andrew Marr Show to defend Donald Trump’s decision to re-tweet three Britain First videos. During the interview Nigel Farage attacked the ‘liberal elite’ insisting they had over-reacted to the situation.

Mr Farage said:

“Do I think those tweets were in good taste? Not particularly, no. But the point is that the level of outrage from the liberal elite in this country is out of all proportion with what happened here.”

Liberal elites?

I guess what Nigel Farage means by ‘liberal elites’ are the salacious and liberal arts grads who now dominate the established media. 

It’s worth Googling the names of reporters who wrote long and informed pieces on Donald Trump/Britain First affair. The entire purpose of their stories was to turn an unpleasant social media broadcast into a narrative which suited a less partisan news agenda – and then hope a largely uninformed readership would agree with them.

To a great extent they achieved their objective. However, there’s a growing number of people who were less than convinced. Unfortunately for them whenever these disingenuous news outlets hear dissenting voices they shout them down with narcissistic accusations of bigotry, racism and racial hatred. In doing so the established media has created a void. An empty void which belongs to the Voice of the People. A void into which the far-right has now stepped.

Fill The Void

Perhaps a truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth approach in the reporting of these issues is what’s needed now. Fill the void. Yes, allow the ‘Voice of the People’ to be heard.

I know, it’s a utopian dream to build a new and perfect society in which everyone is happy. So sayeth the wise man, but what constitutes good and balanced journalism today? Impossible to say? I’d agree, news outlets now have rapid response teams that won’t allow a negative opinion to fester for more than a millisecond before firing off a salvo of misleading flares and redirects all of which are designed to change public perception.

Okay, so good journalism might sometimes find itself at odds with what people wish to believe. However, many journalists don’t factor in how readers respond to their writing. That’s scary because in the end, if nobody believes what journalists write it’s probably a sign that true reporting is dead.

Yes, believe anything you read. If enough people believe it’s fake news, then it’s real. We can’t reboot the Internet. So just feast on whatever news supports your views. That way we all win. 


‘We ARE A Threat!’ Says Jeremy Corbyn.

Jeremy Corbyn Blasts Morgan Stanley David Cameron once told Jeremy Corbyn to “put on a proper suit and do up your tie”. Now, two years later, Jeremy Corbyn has taken that advice and become GQ Magazine’s Best Dressed Man of the Year.

Well, that story didn’t take long to write but oh boy what week this is turning out for Jeremy Corbyn. Not content with the cover of GQ he’s also launched a ‘banker bashing’ salvo at investment bankers Morgan Stanley. Essentially he’s told those ‘casino capitalists’ that they are right to regard him as a threat.

The Labour leader’s comments come after the US-owned bank released a statement in which they warned that a Labour government was a bigger threat to the UK economy than Brexit.

They said:

From a UK investor perspective, we believe that the domestic political situation is at least as significant as Brexit.

It is certainly plausible that the Labour Party could ultimately moderate some of its more radical policy ideas; the alternative could be the most significant political shift in the UK since the end of the 1970s

Mr Corbyn’s response came in a video in which he pledged that a Labour government would reform banking regulations and rein in the “speculators and gamblers” who crashed our economy back in 2008”.

He said:

“These are the same speculators and gamblers who crashed our economy in 2008. And then we had to bail them out.

Their greed plunged the world into crisis and we’re still paying the price, because the Tories used the aftermath of the financial crisis to push through unnecessary and deeply damaging austerity.

That’s meant a crisis in our public services, falling wages and the longest decline in living standards for over 60 years.”

The Labour leader also said that despite the bank paying more than $3 billion in fines Morgan Stanley continue to court senior members of the UK Government. Apparently they meet with Chancellor Philip Hammond four times in a year.

Media Coverage

Jeremy Corbyn seems somewhat self-effacing, at least in this video. He comes across as an honest politician wanting to do what’s best for the common people. By appealing directly to the electorate (via social media) Jeremy Corbyn has effectivley by-passed the established media.

While Jeremy continues to advocate equal opportunity and equality for all the traditional media are driven by an entirely different ideology. Money, influence and power. Consequently there’s now going to be a media stampede to publish anti-Corbyn stories.

Indeed one doesn’t have to look far to find journalists who will report everything that Jeremy Corbyn says as being utter utopian nonsense.

However there are a growing number of people who now believe the traditional media to be politically biased. Biased by way of omission, selection of stories and worst of all, spin. (Paul Dacre knows what I’m talking about.)

Oh I know, newspapers were never truly objective; but they were never this bad. Unfortunately they can’t see that. They continue to applaud themselves for publishing their own partisan ideology simply because it fits their corporate news narrative. That’s kind of scary.

The Fourth Estate has gone the way of quality rock ‘n’ roll and girls in mini-skirts. A distant memory of days gone by.

Yes, the guy with the writing service in Bristol is sitting pretty.


Royal Engagement – Sexy Meghan Markle Sparkles!

British royal watchers are all of a flutter today because Prince Harry has finally announced his engagement to American actress, Meghan Markle. According to the press they will marry early next year.

Now that Prince Harry has confirmed that Meghan Markle, a divorced lady, will be joining the royal family everybody in England is scrambling to find examples of a royal marrying a divorcee. And guess what? There isn’t one. The closest an American divorcee got to the royal throne was American socialite Wallis Simpson whom Edward abdicated to marry.

So, is marrying an American divorcee still considered a royal scandal? Maybe, maybe not. Who knows. Who cares.

Lets face it Meghan Markle has all the right credentials to become royal. After all her track record of ‘good deeding’ is impeccable. In between her workouts and occasional casting calls she already works for a number of global charities. Yes, her good deeds are most sincere.

However, as far as her future role as a royal ambassador is concerned it’s not exactly super exciting. On the upside she might get to address equality, body shaming and recycling issues. On the downside she’ll have to start kissing newsworthy babies always hoping that nobody in the crowd asks her why she doesn’t get a proper job.

Oh I know, it’s easy to mock our royal family. That is until we’re forced to accept that the rags of scandal have now replaced them with reality stars like Gemma Collins and Sam Faiers. And yes, their dubious veneer of class is best discussed in the privacy of pole-dancing club.

Anyway, imagine the stories Meghan will tell her children someday – how their mum rose from the shadows of Hollywood to become the sparkling flower of Britain’s aristocracy. One day her story will rank first on Wikipedia’s list of great things a girl can achieve. 


Pink Risks Everything – Jumps Off 34 Story Building!

PinkPink, 38, went ALL out for her appearance at last Sunday’s American Music Awards. In the run-up to the show the pop star was seen practicing her dance moves while hanging off a 34 floor hotel in Los Angeles.

While Pink is known for her theatrical acrobatics, doing flips and grinds while hanging 400 feet above the ground took her normal routine one step closer to death by mis-adventure.

However, is an AMA performance really worth dying for? I’m not sure it is but when you’re engaged in a battle for media attention, then break dancing on the side of a sky scrapper is certainly different. And yes, it puts a skilfully calculated up-skirt to shame.

But what does that kind of risk taking mean to a musician like Pink? Does it mean she’s a strong independent entertainer blessed with magical powers? Or does it mean she’s just a middle-aged mother desperately trying to save her audience from boredom?

Of course it could mean that losing her life while making a music video would make a great headline. Imagine just how many headlines she’d have recieved had Pink splatted into a million pieces after a cable malfunction.

Well, the cables didn’t break which is probably why hardly anyone this side of the Atlantic has covered the story. Seriously, a nip-slip would have been enough for an appearance in the Daily Fail’s  column of shame

Times have changed.

After this desperate and fool-hardy stunt it’s now time for Pink to bow out gracefully and go be a mum in the suburbs. That way she can get on social media and let everybody see those bingo-wing arms. Then, she can sit back and await the trolls at their body shaming worst. It won’t take them long especially if she posts some decent up-jowl selfies. Give the sad emoji cycle twenty-four hours before Pink can then make her world comeback by saying she doesn’t care what the haters think.

That way she’ll get hyper-kudos from commenters, mummy bloggers and overweight people everywhere. They’ll pen endless stories about how brave,  bold and smart she is for sticking it to the shamers.

I know, it’s a fine line between wanting to be a strong, ruffian woman failing in the music business and simply wanting a little attention. I’m calling Pink on this side of the line.


Charlie Sheen,Cory Haim,sexual assault, claimsAs social justice continues on it’s sexual allegation warpath another Hollywood A-Lister is now being burned at stake. Yesterday it was the turn of Charlie Sheen to deny accusations of rape and deeds most foul.

What follows is the latest twirl in the sordid tale that Charlie Sheen calls his life.

Begins: Back in 1986, while they were filming the movie Lucas, Charlie Sheen, then aged 19, is alleged to have had sex with Corey Haim. At the time the child star was just 13 years-old.

The unsubstantiated claim has come from actor Dominick Brascia who says that Haim – who died in 2010 as a result of drug induced pneumonia – confided in him about the encounter.

He said:

“Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed Lucas. He told me they smoked pot and had sex.

Haim said after it happened Sheen became very cold and rejected him. When Corey wanted to fool around again, Charlie was not interested.”

If this is true then it seems that Charlie Sheen could never leave a bad idea alone. However, a spokesman for the actor has denied the claim.

Sheen’s spokesman told the Sun newspaper:

Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations

And there you have it. Story over. Case closed.

Or is it?

Sexual allegations are not to be messed with. And, depending on your level of fame, they can either keep you relevant or ruin your career.

However, Charlie Sheen has a history of ruining his career all by himself.

It’s unclear how Sheen blew so much credibility so quickly, but if you think about cocaine, hookers and hush money, then you’ll find three reasons for sending Charlie to the nearest rubber room.

Lets face it there are many ways that life can overcome a man. Charlie Sheen has experienced them all. He survives on crack, intravenous McChicken, vials of tiger blood and yelling “Winning” at the top of his voice.

Oh I know, everybody loves a rebel, especially when he’s buying the drinks. However, popularity is a fickle mistress. With the media writing Sheen off as a loser his battle cry of ‘Winning’ is now falling on deaf ears.

It’s a real shame. While Charlie Sheen continues to believe he’s a true American hero, everyone else now thinks he’s an asshole.

How’s the tiger blood working now Charlie?
