Circle Jerk

TAB does not watch a great deal of ordinary TV. We have lives and a blog to maintain. So we are very selective in our viewing.

Bored as we are with the dumb outbursts of minor tabloid TV celebs, we have been waiting for an intelligent and succinct report on this particular incident and Tory Maguire of The Punch seems to have come to our rescue.

And that should be the end of the matter. A fine soldier, alleged good bloke and VC winner was the subject of  idiotic comments by a couple of minor TV presenters on a low-rating gossip show. Apologies were given when the story hit the media.

Except that the whole incident grabbed the unwanted attentions of the Facebook rabble, specifically this crew.

Here’s Facebook woman-hater and rape advocate Trevor George

Trev gets mildly admonished by his unnamed female friend. And we are pretty damn sure that Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith is not particularly interested in fighting for Trev’s preferred way of life.

But Trev, like most of his kind, cannot shut up. In fact he heads over to Yumi Stynes’ Facebook page and lets fly – presumably like a rool man would…

We are sure after this loud and public declaration that Trev is going to attract a large following of female admirers.

It’s clear to us that The Circle isn’t the only place you find jerks.
