Allegedly some booksellers have removed David Walliams books from sale and yet on what grounds are they doing this I am forced to wonder.
David Walliams was paid to compere the Presidents Club Charity event and like any professional actor, he did his job and then went home, having not seen any of the alleged sleazy goings on which were supposed to have taken place.
Would the booksellers who have removed his books from sale have taken the same action had Mr Walliams been taking part in a West End play, where after the curtain call gentlemen had started to grope female members of the theatre staff? An unlikely scenario but none the less virtually the same set of events alleged to have happened at The Presidents Club charity event.
We live in very strange times, where people are being treated as guilty before any evidence has been produced and seemingly sometimes on the word of one person, actors are being black balled and replaced in films before any shred of evidence has been produced. Whatever happened to Innocent until proven guilty, the cornerstone of any civilised legal system.
It seems quite unusual that the media has, as yet not produced any photographic evidence of the alleged ungentlemanly conduct, this in an age when everyone films everything. When, for example a terrorist attack takes place and people are in danger of losing their lives, rather than run for safety they stop and film it to upload later, on a social media site, assuming they survive.
The same can be said for accidents at sea or aircraft crashes where, for example the obvious thing to do is get on the lifeboat as fast as possible, not stand about filming adding a voice-over,”we’re all going to die”.
I’ve always found it rather bizarre that people would film their breakfast or lunch before eating it, although I suppose it would be more strange if they took a film of the toilet bowl the next day together with the caption, “here’s what I ate yesterday”. The way things are going it would never surprise me if people do start to do a before and after shot of their daily food intake.
I was going to comment on this when the story first broke but thought I would wait until there was proof of the goings on, but as yet there seems to be no evidence available and I’m not sure what conclusions I can draw from this.
Firstly we have to assume, there is no evidence for in this day and age, surely if there was anything, by now the media would have found it.
Very few of the women employed as hostesses have complained, which leaves us with the fact that basically this whole story hangs on the word of an undercover journalist.
It is unfortunate that we live in a snowflake culture, whereby people get offended on behalf of others, I have no idea if this is the crux of the matter and the whole story has been blown out of all proportion by an over sensitive female journalist.
I look forward to some real evidence being produced so we can get down to the facts of the matter and see who is really telling the truth of this event.
