Public Outrage At Kay Burley’s ‘Insensitive’ April Jones Announcement


Kay Burley Tom Watson

One of Sky News’ presenters, Kay Burley has been blasted for insensitivity, following her reporting on missing Welsh girl April Jones’ disappearance and alleged murder. Burley has been openly criticised for the manner in which she broke the news of the girl’s alleged murder to two volunteers in Machynlleth, who had been part of the voluntary search team.

The media had been briefed at a press conference just after 10:30am with the news that the suspect, Mark Bridger, had been arrested on suspicion of the murder of the five year-old girl. Until that point, he had only been arrested on suspicion of abducting her. Burley then turned to the volunteers and told them “They (meaning the police) don’t expect to find her alive.” Then, realising that she had wrongly assumed that they already knew this, said “OK, I didn’t know that you hadn’t heard. Let me just tell you what we have heard from the police, is that it’s now become a murder investigation… they don’t expect to find her alive. I’m sorry to have to tell you in circumstances like this. Would you like to say anything?”

As she speaks, the volunteers look visibly distraught and one said “If they haven’t found her, there’s a chance. Where there’s hope, there’s a chance. The other wept openly and both avowed to keep looking for April. Kay then asks how they are feeling, to which the reply is simply “numb.”

The Winter Guest Review


OK
Extremely chatty, Alan Rickman's directorial debut is long in the tooth and short in everything else. While the photography of a remote Scottish fishing village is to die for, the lack of anything happening in the plot (involving eight natives from kids to the elderly and their various relationships) -- or even much music -- is a real letdown. Most notably disappointing is a shorn Emma Thompson, who spends the first third of the movie in the bathroom. Bo-ring!

The Emperor's New Clothes Review


Good

I'm a big fan of an emerging film genre I call the historical what-if story. "Shakespeare In Love" is the most well-known example of these yarns that skirt around the shadowy edges of known fact to create a fanciful fiction featuring a well-known figure. Others include the current, brilliant "The Cat's Meow," about a murder on William Randolph Hearst's yacht, and "Dick," a great 1999 comedy which presupposed that the Watergate scandal's Deep Throat was actually two ditzy teenage girls who overheard Richard Nixon's conspiracies while working as dog-walkers for the presidential pooch.

"The Emperor's New Clothes" takes a similar approach to the last days of Napoleon Bonaparte. As you may know, history proper records that after his defeat at Waterloo, the distinguished French general and pompous self-declared emperor died in exile under British guard in 1821. But this latest gem of this entertaining genre imagines the diminutive duce escaping back to Paris with grandiose plans to reclaim the throne, only to get waylaid into a more humble life as a middle-class fruit merchant.

Driven by a fantastic dual performance from Ian Holm as both Napoleon and the peasant look-alike who takes his place on the prison island of St. Helena, the film is funny, insightfully human and a delightful lark for history buffs without actually requiring much prerequisite knowledge.
