Judging by his lack of tweets on the subject, I suspect they know better than to waste their time trying to contact him.

Re: GB News

There's rumours in the industry that Andrew Neil wasn't happy about the poor technical standards during the first couple of weeks and that he has now pulled out of the project.

If and When Neil comes back it'll be interesting to see if they keep doing the 'Woke Watch' thing where they whine about people being cancelled.
I wonder if this was a ploy by this presenter to get out of his contract? It might also have been orchestrated as a publicity stunt to try and generate more much needed viewers.

Whilst he was in year 9 himself and it wasn't in front of children it was craftily under the desk, you misrepresent allegations like that and you might find yourself threatened with legal action

If it was my project, I'd be fighting tooth and nail to keep it afloat. As I'm sure most people would. I'm surprised Andrew Neil isn't doing the same. Very suspicious to have over two weeks' break at such a defining time in the station's history.

Darren Grimes has now successfully got the tweet that made these allegations removed.

It's an offence to knowingly indulge in sexual activity in front of minors, whether openly or covertly.

I don't believe that the fact that they were all alleged to be in year 9 makes any difference in the eyes of the law, for example, if a 14 year old sent a naked picture of themselves to another 14 year old (or of any age), they are committing the offence of distributing indecent pictures of children.

Do you not see the difference in how you represented it, you put it on a whole different context and it's shocking given the legal team you have backing you up

I don't believe I misrepresented anything and made it clear that these were allegations.

I am, however, happy to acknowledge that one of my disabilities may have an impact on my cognitive skills & the way that I can express myself.

Really, you don't believe you misrepresented a year 9 boy being caught knocking one out under a desk by saying

There have been allegations that one of the presenters masturbated in front of year 9 children.

That is a far worse thing to have said than the actual allegations themselves, consult your legal team for their opinion on what you've done

For clarification, are you suggesting that the effects of my brain injury are not as described?

Maybe not in those particular words, but I think most would agree that there are situations and events in everyday life that perfectly fit the bill, as it were
