    Why the fuck can’t the Daily Mirror leave Craig Charles alone?

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/celebs/news/2009/02/17/video-craig-charles-angers-coronation-street-bosses-with-embarrassing-booze-bender-115875-21129565/

    Yes, he’s a bit of a twit, but at least he’s not been at the crack again.

    They can’t seem to get away from the crack, they try to mention it as much as possible.

    For fuck sake. Im not saying his behaviour wasnt alittle unappropriate, but we all get aittle hammered now and again.

    Get the fuck of his back ‘Mirror’, go find some actual news. Lazy cunts.

    Notice how despite the fact that Simon Gregson was also there, his involvement is quietly brushed over.

    Look, we know the Mirror have a vendetta against Craig. The simple thing to do is just not to read it.

    That’s exactly what my mum said.

    Dates back to February 16th 1988 if I remember rightly.

    The cunts filming him should be shot.

    I’m not usually one to stand up for Craig as he tends to make some fucking stupid decisions, but this the lamest excuse for a showbiz story I’ve seen in some time. 3.40 minutes of video showing a drunk man who, at one point, falls off his chair. Wow.

    “Embarrassing booze bender video” pretty much sums it up. Embarrassing that someone would film it, embarrassing that The Mirror would publicise it.

    Haha, that video is hilariously shit. Astonishing footage of Craig Charles, erm, sitting quietly while he waits for a cab.

    You know what’s even more ridiculous. This so-called bit of news was on the Front page of the paper. FRONT PAGE ffs. Are the Mirror really that desperate??!

    I’m sure The Mirror’s columnists have had a few in their time. It’s not exactly breaking news and isn’t surprising given Craig’s publicity in recent years. He got legless nightly shooting Red Dwarf for probably most if not all the series. He still turns up and hits his marks, remembers his and everyone else’s lines. So what, he got caught drunk, falling over. What celebrity doesn’t in this day and age. We are in the age of repression I suppose. Shame The Mirror can’t follow all those Eastender stars who ‘shame’ themselves. They seem to be devoted to Craig. Quite scary indeed.

    No, we’re in the age where enough people are willing to buy stories about celebrities being drunk in order to feel a bit better about themselves.

    I gave up on the vid after the first minute. He was drunk, but apart from that it was pretty boring.
    The way the Mirror go on about it you’d think it was a drunken riot with a side order of rape & pillage.

    But, saying that, you’d think he’d know better, wouldn’t you?
    What an idiot.

    Yeah, he should never have gone for a drink with his friends, just in case some cunt hid behind the bushes filming him from a distance in order to sell it to a shit newspaper. What an idiot.

    And, of course, journalists never get drunk.

    Al Capone ruined Valentine’s night for many people, I don’t think Craig Charles could ever come close.

    What’s making me piss myself about this is how it was at Bowness-on-Windermere, somewhere I’ve been a heck of a lot. I actually know someone who has a boat up there. A while ago they had trouble with people nicking all the little boats tied up at the marina that people use to row out to their own boats. The guy I know had to drive all the way back home after arriving there and not being able to get to his boat (they got there quite late so there was no-one there to take them out to it either)! Bastards.

    I don’t see what the Mirror are trying to gain with this non-story. Still, raising Craig’s profile (which they ARE, even if it’s a negative story) isn’t a bad thing atm. It’s just a shame they seem to feel they have a kind of responsibility or hold over his behaviour. If someone filmed a Mirror journo doing several lines of coke, it wouldn’t be treated as news. The footage would never be seen.

    So where did this hatred of Craig start?

    Anybody who actually buys a Redtop deserves to suffer the utter shite that’s printed in it.

    Bloke gets drunk – hold the front page!
