Exclamation Richard Quest arrested for drugs in NYC

I've only just heard this story, but I'm astonished!

http://www.reuters.com/article/newsO...32900220080419

I actually think he's fun, used to watch him on BBC World TV when I lived in SE Asia.....very eccentric and a bit of a prat, but how bloody stupid is he?

I wonder if he has dual UK/US nationality?

It sounds like he's going to get away with a drug conviction, just like Kate Moss has. One law for 'celebs' (who can employ the very best lawyers) and one law for everyone else.....the rest of us would be deported....:curse:

PS: the radio reporter also mentioned that Quest was found with some rope around his neck and genitals.... Just found that report here:

I never quite get how a Cambodian refugee can be deported for a drug arrest, yet know and admitted drug users like Sir Elton John, Sir "Mick" Jagger come and go at will.

Wasn't the Pope a member of the Nazi party between 1933 and 1945?

I think that the word you are looking for (which has no really good equivalent in US English) is "pillock".

The man is a pillock - a complete and utter pillock.

If there was ever a guy I expected to be arrested with a rope around his genitals in a public place it would have to be Richard Quest...

Quest is a loon to be sure - I did find him quite entertaining though; he has come out with loads of "foot in mouth" type interview questions in his time, yet has always managed to hang onto his job. But I'm not sure if he'll be allowed to continue after this latest gaffe.....

I always found him to be very annoying. Why anyone would want to be in central park at 3am is beyond me..I would be scared to death, especially with this guy lurking in the shadows LOL.
