Looking again at the clip of him on the bench it looks like he has lost weight - certainly his face is a lot thinner, cheekbones more prominent.

He was probably kipping on that bench afterwards with a bottle of whisky.

Looks like his partner has given him the boot.

Enough about Clarence though.


Even Clarence has gone off to the far side of the world

Mitch, or Clarence, as he likes to be known is all about himself.

Hot-footed it over to Oz for an audience. Hot-footed it back because they all probably thought he was a pratt.

He's creamed as much as he can possibly can with the name M. (Wanted extra cash and some limelight)

But, when it all goes wrong, then without doubt he will distance himself.

Gerry who..?

Err.... nope - don't know the McCanns.

Got a flight to catch.....

Gerry #mccann on radio4 today moaning on about press freedom and intrusion. Ironic that the #McCanns used the same papers to get people to donate to their fund. And who told them that Kate couldn't have sex after Maddie vanished? Oh yes it was the #McCanns

UK will lose freedom of press if MPs back new regulations, minister warns

Joe Murphy 2 hours ago




Britain will slip further down the international league table of media freedom if measures to regulate newspapers are passed by MPs, a minister warned today.

Culture minister Margot James said: “UK’s current standing at 40th on the World Press Freedom index needs to be improved, not set back further.”



Her intervention came as the Commons prepared to vote on a proposal that would expose newspapers to paying the full costs of some court cases even if they are proved to have been in the right.



The idea was put to a vote by Labour deputy leader Tom Watson and backed by privacy campaigners reportedly funded by F1 racing tycoon Max Mosley. A second vote was called by former Labour leader Ed Miliband in a bid to force a new statutory inquiry into newspapers, their relationships with police officers and handling of data.







“These amendments would undermine the freedom of our newspapers,” tweeted Ms James, who said the new Data Protection Bill would strike a fair balance “between respecting press freedom and curbing excesses”. Former Guardian editor lan Rusbridger tweeted it would be “crazy to impose punitive costs on newspapers” in the way proposed by Mr Watson. But he said the arguments for a new Leveson inquiry were “harder to dismiss”.

Gerry McCann, whose daughter Madeleine was abducted in Portugal a decade ago, said it would be “a betrayal of the victims” of media intrusion not to hold the second part of the Leveson inquiry. He said he had no faith in the independent newspaper regulator Ipso, telling Radio 4’s Today programme: “I wouldn’t even talk to them.” 

Theresa May told Cabinet yesterday it was “very important for the Government to resist amendments which could undermine our free press”.

The Prime Minister pointed out that almost £50 million of public money was spent investigating phone hacking, saying another inquiry would not be a “proportionate” solution to claims that had been investigated already.







Local newspaper editors say the Labour amendments could destroy regional journalism. The News Media Association described them as “draconian”.

So victims of ‘press abuse’ like the Mccanns (!!!) are to be allowed to take the government to court over its decision to scrap part two of the Leveson inquiry. A judicial review will be held this Oct.

If the Hacked Off group wins, it will get costs so the taxpayer pays.

The press has indeed behaved very badly with McCann coverage by questioning nothing and just taking their PR teams press releases at face value. Print lies or misinformation often enough and it becomes ‘the truth.’ The journalists who have written these 'exclusives' over the years should be expelled from the NUJ - but possibly they were never members. I do believe that the NUJ cares about standards.

In other instances, people have been badly treated like Christopher Jeffries who is also mentioned in the NUJ article in its magazine. I do believe there should be appropriate mechanisms for redress.

Trust the McCanns to get in on this as though they were genuine victims. It is irritating to see their names in the list of press victims along with innocent Mr Jeffries.

It has never done my blood pressure any good to see the McCanns linked together with people who have suffered at the hands of the media or are crime victims, like April Jones's family.

I musn't get too wound up now about it as, with the infernal heat as well, I would explode!
