I personally think this is ridiculous. And after what Cameron said about gay people being "under risk of accusations," the disciplinary action should be going elsewhere.

Not much point in this story unless they say what the ''disciplinary action'' is. Has he been deducted an hour's pay ? Sentenced to do TM five days a week ? Another cop-out.

No, he's sat on the saddle and whipping the cattle's arse.

Very good of the bookers to get someone he could deffo patronise.

Woo-hoo, Phil grab your knees, pretend you care and take the reigns.... .. .. .


I have made a list about people which may guess about domestic abuse.

A three minute check on the internet has produced a list.

Schofield is on my list.

"Appropriate disciplinary action". Yeah yeah, they've rationed his smarm quota, reducing his false corpsing by one a day.

Wow, people just love twisting what David Cameron actually said.

On the BBC website in a story about the BBC crisis it specifically says. "ITV News' UK editor Lucy Manning confirmed: "Phillip Schofield plus some of the This Morning production staff have been disciplined." "

Unless he's been fined a substantial amount of money, there's not much they can do about it. I mean a suspension, even without pay, (if it were possible under his "terms and conditions of employment"), would be like cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
Never took to him, "Gordon" always had far more charisma.

Cameron's comment seemed out of place to me at the time, but I don't think that disciplining Phillip Schofield/This Morning is ridiculous. Whether or not the names on the list could be seen by the public, suggesting that facts could be found with a quick search of the internet would only have led either to the persecution of the innocent or to the guilty getting off scot-free - because any conviction could be easily overturned because the trial had already been prejudiced before it started. Nothing about that would bring justice for the real victims, who are in the corner I assume we're all fighting for.

What I do think ridiculous is the idea that private disciplinary action is 'appropriate' for a public transgression.

It amazes me what some people 'think' they hear

All this is about Schofield and his unprofessional findings on the net !

Philip Schofield is not a News Journalist and should stick to entertainment. He would never had done this years ago when he was at Radio One doing his Sunday Show and Roadshows and Going Live, Talking Telephone Numbers etc etc... He should consider what he is, and stop being something he's not.

Overall he comes across as a nice guy, but these investigations regarding Jimmy Savile and the Tories etc etc have gone to some celebrities heads and not leaving it to the right people to deal with it.

Phil should just stop showing himself ever from TV from now on. What a cheap stunt and I am so glad it came back biting him right on his arse.

If Cameron pulled out another list from his pocket and said 'this list I have has your name on it, when did you first abuse a young child?' what would he have said in response? After all the fact that it's not true isn't the point. It was a list of names from the internet so by Schofields sense of outrage should be treated in the same way as the one he gave Cameron.
Taking a list off the web and treating it as fact isn't journalism and shouldn't have been used in this way.

Would the BBC have gotten away with saying that the Newsnight staff had been given "appropriate disciplinary action" without detailing what the action was??

I'm sure they did say that when they suspended Jonothan Ross without pay over the Andrew Sachs debacle

It's an internal matter, no need to tell the press exactly what it is

Wouldn't the presenter be doing as they were told, with some programmes like this morning allowing the presenter for influence
