I am not totally up to speed on this Schofield thing, but it sounds like whatever is due to come out will be bad and I can't say I am surprised at all. These days it could be anyone in the TV business/entertainment industry that is 'outed' for whatever behavior
I am currently though, in agreement here with what Aet says. The hysteria around the Schofield scandal from what we have learned so far, has had me thinking, how do people think that makes people such as Aet feel?
There has got to be more that is far worse to drop on Schofield because so far all I have seen is what Aet himself has pointed out and suddenly there's a baying mob for what's known on the street as 'Noncing him off'
People think he is another Savile .. but what has happened, other than he's done something that we know fine well happens anywhere else.. just without cameras/tabloid headlines and baying social media mobs??? That is all I have seen reported and once I am at the end of an article wondering, well .. where is the rest?
It isn't illegal if he happened to have gotten into a sexual relationship with a person of legal age, is it? But depends on the circumstances I guess .. which we will soon learn of by the looks of things.
All I have seen the past few days is folk behaving like he's down there with the sickest of pedophiles, and I guess the fact his brother is serving time for what he has done does not help, like ... but the way it must be making other people feel who are actually in normal, consensual relationships where there is quite a significant age gap... I find it disturbing, to be frank.
No one would bat an eyelid if the hardest lad in the area walked into the pub with an 18-year-old under his arm, and he was knocking 50.
Folk is frothing at their gobs to wake up to a Mail headline that Schofield went to levels the likes of Savile did, using his status to get him what he wants. I find that disturbing too when you think about it.
So as Aet points out .. I am still waiting to find out what he has actually done. I have no interest in the lives of the likes of PS, to put it mildly, but you can't get away from it the past few weeks. What a load of fuckin' racket.
If it turns out he was a serial N0nc3 and abuser then I hope he gets the punishment he deserves, but at the minute I just find it all a bit odd ..
I am not sticking up for Schofield at all, I have no knowledge of the other details behind why ITV has dropped him which we're yet to hear, obviously
I am merely asking the question .. where is the information exactly about what he has done that is so bad, it has sent folk into a frenzy such as we are seeing right now.. ???
Aet - I hope you're alright fella. Don't let owt get to you such as this. The media love winding people up to death when there's fk all there to see (though there may be in this instance, we're yet to learn) and folk fall for it every single time, sadly.
