Sorry to post again on this subject but it looks like he will face no further punishment. I have to say I was a Rossy fan prior to the incident. At the moment I am on the fence as to wheather I will listen or watch his programs in the future. One thing I can say for sure his first show back on BBC1 will be a big hit rates wise, just goes to show there is no such thing as bad publicity.
Perhaps it would have cost the BBC or licence payers, more to get rid of him, than to keep him.
It might be a case of wait and see, if his return improves the situation. Personally I have been informed on many occasions that he is a rather intelligent commodity,much sort by many, but his smugness made me and mine non-viewers or supporters of this gentleman.There's one or a few others that could be mentioned as well!.
He has been fined- but sacking him- could lead to all sorts of contractual wrangles and compensation payments So perchance he is not fired - but neither will he be used in further schedules - perhaps maybe. What I ever happens I shant be holding my breath I didn't watch that type of program before and I certainly wont in future - Not Rossi, or Norton or any other non-entities such as this. I have recently availed my self of a 32inch flattie- and as I said to my daughter 'Why did I bother'
