He's given his libel damages to Reprieve. I know he rightly gets a bad press on here, but £54k is not to be sniffed at.

I was hoping he would do this.

Good on him. He's many things, but he's not a racist and he's done the right thing here. Bravo.

he is still a wanker.
a disablist wanker

Perhaps he should have donated the money to the school Katie Price is setting up for children with SN, after abusing her and her son so foully.
oh but wait. those with learning disabilities aren't actually people, are they. Just fuel for Boyle's revolting "humour".

I do adore Clive Stafford-Smith. I'm sure Frankie Boyle will learn.

Clive Stafford-Smith is amazing.

does that make it all right then?

Sorry. I mean that I hope no-one will see Clive Stafford-Smith as a bad guy in all this. He does amazing work, on a pittance. He tries, for example, to save wrongfully convicted poor, young, black prisoners in the USA from the gas chamber.

The gas chamber?

Absconditus Sat 03-Nov-12 23:47:20

i laugh at his jokes does that make me rasist ???
if you wasn't having a go at him it would be someone else.
leave the poor guy alone.

threesocksfortheguy Sat 03-Nov-12 23:50:11

"poor guy"
are you drunk?
he is a disablist wanker

Give the guy some credit, you don't have to like everything he does to admit that this is a nice gesture.

Toughasoldboots Sun 04-Nov-12 00:14:24

He could have done that nice gesture in private, otherwise, you know, it looks a bit as if he is showing off about what a wonderful person he is.

threesocksfortheguy Sun 04-Nov-12 09:46:49

he is a wanker.
he is not "nice" disablist people are not nice

ProcrastinatingPanda Sun 04-Nov-12 09:55:39

Disablist little prick.

Glitterknickaz Sun 04-Nov-12 09:57:07

Disablist arsehole.

ssd Sun 04-Nov-12 10:07:51

did anyone see him on jonathon ross

so unfunny he made me squirm

please dont think all of us from glasgow are tossers like him

ProcrastinatingPanda Sun 04-Nov-12 10:15:38

ssd is right, we're certainly not like him. I hardly know anyone here that actually finds him funny.

HarlettOScara Sun 04-Nov-12 10:21:30

I have no real opinion in him one way or the other but in tweeting publicly regarding the recipient of his libel damages, it raises the profile of the organisation which has to be a good thing. No?

And if he hadn't made it public, then I'm sure a lot of his detractors would have been very quick to jump to the conclusion that he'd kept the money and hadn't followed through on his promise to give it to charity. So he can't win, really, can he?

Toughasoldboots Sun 04-Nov-12 10:29:20

I don't care either way what he did with the money. Nothing would raise the low opinion that I have of him.

My relative sued a sartorial magazine for libel and donated the whole lot to charity.
He is well known but didn't feel the need to broadcast it.

ssd Sun 04-Nov-12 12:22:29

..yes, I noticed on jonathan ross Boyle couldn't wait to say he'd donated it to charity

he's still a prick

limitedperiodonly Mon 05-Nov-12 08:40:18

Why shouldn't he say that he's given the money away? Otherwise people would think he pocketed it.

The Mirror got rightly caned for lazily calling him a racist. He wasn't and was entitled to sue. It's a terrible thing to say about someone and the Mirror was lazy and stupid to say it and try to defend it.

They are just as offensive and ignorant as him as they presumably don't think the 'jokes' he makes about about disabled people and women matter and that racism, even when it doesn't exist, is the only sin.

Brycie Mon 05-Nov-12 08:42:16

Yes he is still a twat. Again. Twatty twat.
