Front Page Ate My Reputation

    Broadsword calling Danny Boy says:

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer chap.

      I feel so sorry for Max. Not really, ha ha ha ha.

      Kelvin Bellend says:

      are you calling me a troll?

      Anon says:

      Wake up–Clifford is only the first victim of the Saville hysteria.

      All those out there who are crowing because you don’t like Clifford think of this: do you want to live in a world where any demented female can claim that, some time in the last 50 years, you looked at her in a way she didn’t much care for and so Plod comes racing around mob-handed as if you are a knife and ski-mask type rapist?.

      Is some obscure revenge on Clifford worth it when it helps with the leftist agenda now being advanced to create a country what has happened to Clifford can happen to anyone withn a penis.?

        BTW your punctuation is weak. Seek help. Call the Punctuation Helpline. Calls cost £1 a minute from a landline. Mobile providers may charge more – see their terms and conditions. Calls may be recorded for training purposes. The Punctuation Helpline is a nonprofit organisation approved by HM Government.

    He obviously needs a good publicist

      bergen says:

      Yes.His interview outside plod was real car crash broadcasting-he seemed totally stunned and suddenly looked very old indeed. I should feel sorry for him but I don’t. Classic case of someone who can dish it out but can’t take it.

        Daniel says:

        “Classic case of someone who can dish it out but can’t take it.”

        He stood on the steps on the police station just after being released from 12 hours of custody, gave a statement and answered questions (and did the same again this morning).

        Most celebs get straight in the car and flee.

    Karma’s a Bitch ain’t it?

    jaded48 says:

    Who’s publishing the story from the (allegedly) abused girls point of view? Lean forward cleavage shot,slightly unfocused lens,looking sad into the distance etc etc.

    East India Company Wallah says:

    You cannot help but smile at the smug shit
    It is not possible to like an arrogant prick like that even if you reared it!


    • 11
      A reporter from the Daily Planet says:

      Sources tell me the Law Courts are expecting to issue two Libel Writs today but that they are going to be disappointed .

      OnBenefits says:

      He’s had it all his own way for far too long.

      As Corporal Jones said, “they don’t like it up ‘em”

    its bleak in sunderland says:

    What goeth around cometh around sayeth the Lord


  8. 12
    You couldn't make it up! says:

    There are some interesting photos on the DailyMail website of Plod walking out of Clifford’s house, carrying bin bags (note the plural) full of ‘evidence’.

    The alleged crimes happened 35 f*cking years ago. What ‘evidence’ is going to be lying around his house today?


  9. 14
    Nogbad the Bad says:

    Can you feel the vibrations from hundreds of strings being pulled by slebs and establishmentarians who are desperate for skeletons to remain in cupboards. Plod must have given a great deal of consideration before taking this action, knowing the forces that will try to protect him. He’s not guilty of anything, but those headlines will not be forgotten anytime soon.


  10. 15
    OnBenefits says:

    How come the media were already at Clifford’s house when the police turned up?


    • 48
      XXXxx says:

      You don’t think someone had phoned around the Fleet Street rags if so that is a bit naughty after what that has happened over the past 4/5 years, especially as the guy has not been charged. All the rags are interested in is the sensationalism, especially as Maxy has helped (admittedly at a price) folks who have been bitten by the rags.

      Synic says:

      Couldn’t possibly be incontinent plods getting their palms greased, could it?


  11. 17
    Sense of humour bypass says:

    Notice that even though most of the house on both sides are reacting with good humour to his slip-up, Maria Eagle sits forward to shout something at Cameron. She can’t even let an innocent mistake go without turning it into a point scoring opportunity. Pathetic.


  12. 19
    Woodwork Crawler says:

    My great grandmother said Edward VII lifted her on to a horse in a most inappropriate way in 1896. The story has caused me severe stress and difficulties in my personal relationships.

    The nice lady from Social Services has counselled me, and says I must sue the Saxe-Coburg descendants for compensation.


    • 25
      its bleak in sunderland says:

      A spokesperson for lawyer r us says get in touch its time we dealt with those Saxe Coburgs once and for all

      Wouldn,t it be,The House of Hanover, cos Vicky was their from 1837 to 1901,
      if memory serves,and,this old book is correct.

    OnBenefits says:

    It has always been my opinion that Freddie Starr probably didn’t eat anyone’s hamster.

    Maybe we will now be told the truth.


    • 28
      This is fun. says:

      He didn’t eat it and it wasn’t a hamster.

      He bummed it and it was a choir boy.


    • 53
      Dixon of Dock Green says:

      I found the hamster in this gentelman’s fridge

      It is important evidence in our ongoing enquiry

      But what we are really lloking for is gerbils…


      • 89
        nudge nudge, wink wink says:

        I have it on good authority that those bin bags removed from the house by the Police contained the remains of a hamster.

    Joan Was Quizzical says:

    PC 31 says, “We’ve caught a dirty one!”
    Maxwell stands alone
    Painting testimonial pictures, oh oh oh
    Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery,
    Say, “He must go free (Maxwell must go free)!”
    The judge does not agree, and he tells them so, oh oh oh…

    Nanny knows best says:

    Confucius he say: he who rides the elephant much be careful not to get a tusk up the arse.


  16. 27

    lets hope he can clear his name , i mean all this happening to a man who for a hefty fee , preaches morals and ethics and standards to the rest of us


  17. 29
    A reporter from the Daily Planet says:

    The average age of prisoners in the UK is about to increase to 62 in a shocking survey issued by the MoJ today .


  18. 30
    Lorna Dunkley says:

    I asked members of the angry mob who had gathered outside Max Clifford’s house, burning effigies and screaming “Scum”, whether they were overreacting to unproven child abuse allegations.

    “What child abuse allegations?” they asked.


    • 59
      XXXxx says:

      Those must have been the Fleet Street Rag Mob and hired rent a mob. It is known if you get a few people crowded together more will join them and before you it you have a large crowd, remember the old pot salesmen on the markets.

    Stuart Hall's Schedule for 2013 says:

    It’s My Knobout!

    John Terry is 32 today.

    Lord Cashpoint, I proudly bought Labour Party says:

    No one has ever eaten my reputation

    I never had one to start with


  23. 44
    Penfold says:

    Would be nice to see if the rozzers can fit him up for abetment……


  24. 47
    Not surprised says:

    Just a small point (oooerr!) Why is he allowed to “brief the press” following his questioning?

    If I was arrested in connection with these sort of despicable crimes, I would be ushered out through a side door with a blanket over my head.

    Don’t give the creep any coverage and let him crawl back under the rock from whence he came!


    • 97
      Gareth Pierces sparkling personality says:

      He hasnt been charged and unless he is subject to specific bail conditions so there is no restriction on him talking to the press.

    UK alcohol production wallah says:


    I am writing to you to complain

    Look at this

    Alcohol consumption is collapsing in the UK

    You must seriously increase yours please

    I want you crawling on all fours during this festive season

    And young Harry

    You are not fulfilling your patriotic duty

    Our life defends on it


  26. 51
    The Boy Plunger says:

    No one mentioned at all that the BoE kept interest rates on hold yesterday and inflation is above target .

    The country is obsessed with sex .


    • 56
      Confucius says:

      In case you hadn’t noticed, the BoE has been doing that to us for the past several years. Do keep up.

        So when this independent Canadian arrives he is going to really shake things up then.

        Hand picked by Cameron and Osbourne I heard .

      Gideon and Dave the phantom cutters says:

      Plan C. Let inflation erode the national Debt. Keep stealing from non-inflation indexed pensioners, savers, and all the other plebs who are so stupid they are not helping the economy by taking on more debt.

      Mervyn — Don’t forget to shit out another £200bn or so ofQ.E. before you swan off into your platinum plated retirement.

      By the way, how did the measurements for the ermine go the other day?

      Lots Of Love

        Better start remarketing low cost endowment policies too .

          Marion the cat says:

          While Cameron stuffs the poorest and most hopeless in society just to continue ‘bunging’ his millionaire father in law over wind-farms. I have grown to hate the bastard ever since he took control. Everybody, please don’t be duped by the worry of the Milliband Kid, if we all vote UKIP we can sort this out. CHRIST now he now wants homos to marry in church. Isn’t his obsession with the shirt-lifting fraternity a bit worrying. F**K OFF you bastard.

      Go back to the Gold Standard, that will restrict the thieving politicians and screwball economists.


  27. 57
    Editor of the Tatler says:

    I am sending two hundred hacks and paparazzios to cover our Max’s scene

    He has been such an icon of progress, British fashion, show bizz, transparency and total fucking decadence……


  28. 60
    The Last Governor of the BBC says:

    I am writing to you to say that the investigation into the BBC has been indefinately “postponed”

    We will resume normal service when all this unecessary fuss has calmed down

    PS In the meantime, I am trying to find out exactly how many employees we have… the Chief of Personnal has no idea

    And how many pay UK tax…


  29. 64
    BB says:

    Quote of the day from ‘Davy’ on the Dan Hodges article in ‘Read Elsewhere':

    ‘Ed Balls is the economic equivalent of Jimmy Savile. He got away with it for years, but there’s no way we’d trust him with our kids future knowing what we do now.’

      Legal Beagle says:

      I would put him in the Madoff category

      Master of the Ponzi Arts and proud of it…

        He did not personally but the banker’s asked to have little or no regulation as it cramped their style, Gordy and Ballsy said ok, and the bankers did the rest.

    reports from the rear says:

    this is one of those happy stories that the press like to put out at christmas

    rejoice – rejoice as lord leveson says


  31. 67
    Hank the Cat says:

    I hear that Max Clifford is hiring Tom Watson to do his PR


  32. 78
    8illy 8owden, the world's greatist umplre says:

    According to the BBC, ‘Calcutta’ is now ‘Kolkata’.

    They’ll be renaming Peking next.


  33. 80
    reports from the rear says:

    there’s a saying – you can tell a lawyer by the clients that keep him

    does this apply to PR people too?


    • 91
      Russian Oligarch (and his bent City solicitors) says:

      Not really

      You just bung the PR scum and they open their legs (or buttocks depending on your taste)

      We do it anonymously so no one knows who exactly is laundering our reputations


  34. 88
    Synic says:

    I hope Max Clifford has tucked away copies of all the yet unpublished scandal he must have on many politicians and celeb. luvvies, so that plod won’t have been able to destroy it after searching his house.

    If they try and send you down, then take all the fuckers with you Max.


  35. 105
    perry Mason says:

    Savile has completely stifled all serious political debate in this country.

    What should happen is that his body should be dug up from that cliff in Scarborough and transported to BBC Broadcasting House in London .

    His body in full public view should be beheaded . Then his body should be hung drawn and quartered through the streets of London with his entrails finally being deposited on the minute hand of Big Ben .

    Only in this way can all those poor boys and girls get closure and will not have to spend years and years in Courts with Lawyers .


  36. 107
    Daniel says:

    Funny how all but one of the arrested people so far have been household names. How come some unknown BBC producer/assistant/cleaner wasn’t also a pedo/rapist/groper?

    Bit like how people who claim to do reincarnated are usually someone well known from history, like Joan of Arc or Julius Caesar, not some farmer from Suffolk who died age 42.


  37. 109
    Hank the Cat says:

    Ed milliband thinks he was reincarnated, Judas


  38. 115
    Jimmy says:

    This laves the very obvious question: where do the victims go to get the best deal from the tabs?
