Cliff The Airhead

Crackpot Christian crooner Cliff Richard’s lawyers allude to him owning air

 

The libel case brought by Sir Cliff Richard – a self-declared “genuine international celebrity” with an ego the size of China – against the BBC took an unexpected turn yesterday, according to a report on the corporation’s very own website.

 

In an article published Tuesday, ‘Auntie’ remarked:

 

“Sir Cliff’s barrister, Justin Rushbrooke QC, asked [Jonathan] Munro [the BBC’s head of newsgathering] if he thought it had been acceptable to fly a helicopter over a private estate to ‘spy’ on the singer’s home.”

 

“Mr Munro said he would not use the word ‘spy’ and added he thought it was acceptable to film police searching the home of someone under investigation.”

 

“Mr Rushbrooke said: ‘If that is your genuine belief I suggest to you that you are unfit for your job.’”

 

Clearly, aside from being supposedly cheated out of winning Eurovision by General Franco, ‘Cliffy’ now plainly is of the belief he was robbed of the airspace above the apartment complex he used to live in. No congratulations required; the man’s an airhead.

  1. Sir Cliff should not have been targeted in this way. It wasn’t very kind to film his house and he deserves to win his case.

  2. He should be told to bloody well ROD OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Frivolous case!!!!!!!!!!!! He was also friends with the man we were so glad to get rid of in Australia —— ROTTEN ROLF HARRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Cliff Richard has always been outrageous. He is more than a crackpot though. He’s damn well crazy. I have watched the Loose Women interview where he talks about being on his kitchen floor, etc and it made me question his sanity.

  4. A rather strange angle to take , Matthew, about Cliff ‘owning the air’ above his home.
    Leaving whether you like Cliff or not as a person aside, the case is surely a test for ‘trial by media’ editorial decisions generally and in this particular case the BBC’s power to reach millions and of commissioning a helicopter-bound reporter to cover a Police investigation without owning the responsibility of following due process.
    Something some of us still value in this country, over the shoot first, ask questions later style of journalism. #syria#peterhitchens#peterford

  5. If I were the bachelor boy I would be keeping a very low profile and let sleeping dogs lie. I think Cliffy has a very big closet full of titbits he wouldn’t want to be aired in public. Like Rod mentioned he had some dubious acquaintances including the pervert and convicted child molester Harris.
    I would suggest going on another summer holiday.
