JK sent rolling as show gets the axe

The Jeremy Kyle Show has been axed by ITV following the death of a guest who took part in the programme.

Steven Dymond was found dead on 9 May a week after filming the show, during which he took a lie detector test.

The death has prompted an outpouring of criticism around how the show treats vulnerable people, with a decorated Gulf War hero who suffered from PTSD speaking out this week after he too was driven to the brink of suicide after appearing on one of the regular daytime TV slots.  

Carolyn McCall, ITV’s CEO, said: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.”

“The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.

“Everyone at ITV’s thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steve Dymond.”

The broadcaster added: “The previously announced review of the episode of the show is under way and will continue.

“ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.”

    …… Yet since YVette Cooper Balls was the first minister to sign off the unlawful and illegal ESA in 2009. Over half a MILLION vulnerable disabled have been forced to kill themselves related to ESA DWP.

    DWP’s own stats for 2014 – 2017 show minimum 132,000 “deaths”. Stats for 2009 to 2014 are hidden. Stats from 2017 to now 16th May 2019 are hidden.

    Get this is perspective. Bosian War killed approx 50,000. Saddam Hussein killed approx 100,000 of his own people in ten years.

    The death penalty for members of State under 1688 Bill of Rights and Magna Carta never ceased! Wake up people. England’s Police, public authorities, Judges, magistrates, court staff, solicitors, councils, social services, NHS, Charities etc are just as dirty as those in Iran, China, North Korea etc…… just so much State harm on the population is covered up as England is a small country compared to others so is easy to manipulate via the media etc. We NEED our NATURAL right to fully automatic weapons to be realised.
