Comedian Graham Norton has vented his fury at Irish broadcaster RTE’s decision to pay €85,000 to leading opponents of gay marriage.Not just because they felt like bunging them a few quid, you understand. The payments were out of court settlements to prevent RTE being sued when their presenter shot his mouth off and defamed these people. Shooting your mouth off without thinking can have that effect.
So it’s a good thing for Norton that he’s rich. Maybe RTE can sue him for defaming them? It’d be the funniest thing of his whole career so far.
