In January I was sexually assaulted. On Tuesday, I was interrogated, ridiculed and had my journalistic integrity questioned by James Whale on his TalkRadio show as I described the experience, during what started as a discussion about flirtation since #MeToo. After hearing me talk of being orally raped – an expression James Whale can be seen horrifically laughing at in the YouTube clip of the debate TalkRadio itself tweeted (which has since been removed) – he proceeded to interrogate me on my behaviour in the aftermath of the assault. Whale and his sidekick, Ash Gould, concluded: “It’s worrying: men are afraid to approach women and young men are having less sex,” and, as a result, they “might not even do something that is perfectly innocent”.

Owned by Murdoch through one of his subsidiaries.
Hadn't realised that he had bought Ulster and then morphed it out. Good call, Mister Mayle.

UTV split their TV and radio divisions, sold the TV division to ITV and renamed their radio operations "The Wireless Group" only for a few months later to be bought out by M**doch.

Mr Whale came to prominence in the late 1980s as the host of The James Whale Radio Show, which, despite its name, was actually a TV show that became a Friday night fixture on ITV until the mid-1990s.

In the 1990s, he moved to the radio station Talksport, but was fired in 2008 after calling on his listeners to vote for Boris Johnson in the London mayoral election - Ofcom ruled that it was a serious breach of impartiality rules.

Last time I heard Whale about six or seven years ago, I actually thought he had mellowed a bit. Yes, he was of a right wing tack, but was willing to debate issues, and respected the opposing point of view.

Clearly more money to be made being a prick.

And of course Talksport was once owned by Kelvin McFilth
