This acid tongued Australian harpy was the press secretary to William Hague when he was leader of the Conservative Party. She’s now reverted to journalism and after leaping to the defence of her “dear friend” Rolf Harris declared “Cliff Richard doesn’t deserve this lurid trial by television” in August 2014. Amanda Platell “ran out of sympathy” for the Duchess of Cambridge earlier in the year and declared “the real gay marriage bigots are its intolerant supporters”. Twitter trolls have been called “evil by her”. Why then does she herself write such hateful bile?
Amanda Platell thinks that Cliff Richard should not have trial by media. AGREED! BUT at least he has the money for good lawyers Why should he get preferential treatment because he’s a celebrity. I was involved in a trial that was courted by media but did not have the luxury to challenge the media circus. Justice prevails for those with deep pockets! Thank goodness for the few lawyers that can give limited time pro bono for accused to challenge the often distorted facts of a sensational headline. Trial belongs in a court not the media.
The irony is that the same William Hague is now part of the Angelina Jolie circus. They all want to be part of a circus, it is their choice…..
I would not wish to have sex with an ugly old Aussie trollop like her.
Platell from time to time writes a load of shit in her column, but that does not mean she is a serial shagger, try Edwina Currie…..
Learn some decency. Amanda is a genius and a fabulous writer.
