ITV Punish Schofield for PM Blunder

ITV have taken action against Phillip Schofield and three other members of the This Morning team following paedo list-gate last week:

“Last Thursday we began an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mistake on that day’s This Morning programme, for which both Phillip Schofield and ITV apologised. This investigation has now concluded and the appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. We sincerely apologise because the way in which the issue was raised was clearly wrong and should have been handled differently. We have taken steps to make sure our editorial processes are always properly followed, which was not the case in this instance, and to ensure such an error will not be made again.”

Just what that disciplinary action entailed they have not said…

    We sent over a copy of our disciplinary handbook, so if they followed that they should get a payrise, promotion and their choice of child from any of the local schools…

      He’s a ‘celeb’, half way to becoming a ‘National Treasure’. ‘Celebs’ don’t do apologies. Except when they’re being paid to do so on my fantastic programme and reading off the auto-cue.

    The punishments should be made on air, especially if Holly Willoughby is to get punished.

    the problem with ITV’s putative ‘editorial processes’ begins with the appointment of someone such as Schofield as a ‘journalist’

    perhaps the results of such a selection – as George Bush might have put it – should not have been entirely unexpectorated

    Andrew Mitchell gets sacked for calling a policeman a pleb which he was, nobody gets sacked for calling Lord McAlpine a peedo which he wasn’t. Justice – GangUK style.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
