So, Craig’s reported for bail, and been “let off“, then. As in: he’s escaped court, and instead got a police caution, in return for agreeing to go into rehab. All eminently sensible, obviously – there’s no point anything else happening. I wish we still had a statement from Craig about the whole thing – but let’s face it, we’ve only got a few days to go until we get one…
No word yet about his current suspension from Corrie, or his 6 Music show – presumably decisons will be taken when he leaves rehab. It’s interesting to note, however, that 6 Music have finally replaced Craig with Eddie Piller, so they clearly don’t expect him back for a while at least.
It’s been a strange few weeks, really. We’ve not said much about the case – partly because we didn’t want to risk legal trouble as we haven’t actually had a statement from Craig yet, and partly because – well, what is there to say? The current outcome was clearly what was going to happen. In-depth discussion of the issue is largely pointless, simply because we still don’t know enough about the facts of the case. He’s obviously been a twat – but then, The Mirror hardly comes across as virtuous. Pretty much everyone comes out of the case a bit grubby. Including, sadly, some fans, whose ludicrous statements I won’t repeat here.
We obviously wish Craig all the best with it. Sort it out soon, so we can get back to bitching about you, yeah?
