Whilst the number of complaints raises eyebrows is it just me who thinks that this policy of treating all complainants as telling the truth (and thus Clark as a liar) is somewhat at odds with how we conduct justice? One might go as far as to call it perverse that the new normal is to prove ones innocence. This seeming to be the path taken with groups such as the BAFTAs giving him the boot on, as yet, unfounded allegations.
By all means treat accusations seriously but the idea that we should put blind faith in any random accusation (this goes for all people in all cases) seems perverse in ones book and a damn dangerous tilt in the way justice is delivered if people are seen as guilty until otherwise proven (nevermind the fact you cant really prove a negative).

This should serve as a wake-up call for an even more cautious and more rigorous evaluation of accusations of any misdemeanor.

While the mounting numbers do make it more likely he is guilty than if it was a lone accuser, I never watched the show but I would be pissed off if I had invested a week in doing so only for it to be pulled on the last night finale.

Just a guess, But I have a feeling the BAFTAS received or viewed some evidence after the initial unfounded complaints that changed their minds from 'How do we weather this?' to 'Out! out! OUT!'

Always came across as slimy tbh.

You can still get it on the ITV catch up - thank God. If you can forgive Noel for making your willy fall off.

The bosses at BAFTA have clearly had decent legal and PR advice and then handled it poorly.

These are their press releases:-

https://www.bafta.org/media-centre/p...ment-29-4-2021

The first press release of 29/4 could only be faulted in one respect. It wasn't obvious how this would play out to a finish if no-one investigated the allegations. A line about the BAFTA Council meeting to consider the allegations later would have given them the wriggle room to set up an inquiry if no-one else did.

The press release of 30/4 is a car crash of prejudice. All they needed to get over was that they knew nothing about the allegations before making the award.

I don't think once you have been named it is ever a case of proving yourself innocent. Regardless of the legal process and whatever ruling is determined from that, he will always been seen as guilty. Even those that protest his innocence will have a new limitation to their trust in him. That is the reality of these types of accusations.

Let us hope that justice is done reasonably soon. The current lengthy waits for court cases are no justice to those accused, victims, and indeed anyone who is going to give evidence.
