If making abusive phone calls is illegal, and considered sufficiently serious to be punishable by a prison sentence, why are Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand (and the responsible BBC executives) not being prosecuted for the conduct which has been reported extensively during the past few days? Why have we not yet heard that the Metropolitan Police have arrested the offenders – or are they falling down on the job yet again?
And when found guilty (as, presumably, they should be, since both “entertainers” effectively admitted the offences by issuing apologies) should they not be given the maximum available sentence in view of their status as role models setting standards for impressionable young people?
And why, 36 hours after the initial press reports of this matter, are the BBC (according to their own news reports) still investigating? Shouldn’t they have taken prompt action on this matter, such as sacking both of these obnoxious filthmongers and passing the evidence to the Metropolitan Police.
