EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew Steeples Our editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Taking The Flack

Matthew Steeples suggests that both the press and the legal system have a lot to answer for in the wake of the death of Caroline Flack

The media created her and the media took her away. Caroline Flack, in spite of plainly being a very troubled lady in other regards, was most definitely destroyed by both the press and the legal system.

 

In December, I recall sitting with a leading barrister on the day Miss Flack was due in court. We discussed the story of her arrest and aside from my pointing out that the police ludicrously overreacted in sending so many police cars to process an essentially minor alleged crime, the legal eagle I mention said something telling. In commenting: “They’ll kill her,” my friend sadly predicted the outcome we now all know and very much regret.

 

Miss Flack’s on-off boyfriend ‘victim’ was not prepared to give evidence against her, yet magistrates imposed conditions limiting contact between them. I, for one, hope that those very people wake up and examine their consciences this morning. They certainly have blood on their hands.

  1. An excellent article Matthew, you have hit so many nails on the head, with every comment true to the end. No matter what Caroline did in her private life it was just that, private. The press sure do have some answers to give, but will they? Not an effing chance. They’ll simply move on to the next easy picking for which, thanks to reality television, they have many poor souls to pick from. May Ms Flack rest in peace. For her, sadly, she has no more worries. But for her nearest and dearest, especially her family, they somehow have to find the strength to move forward. Very sad indeed.

  2. When the gutter press spend days and pages and pages on this nobody who commiited suicide, and don’t waste a single second on the army veterans with PTSD who do the same then something is plainly wrong.
