Not for the first, Stephen Fry has thrown his toys out of the pram. Perhaps, he was expecting the world-and-his dog to beg him to ignore those nasty newspaper reporters and return to centre stage - where he imagines he belongs. It will be interesting to see how he copes with his current dilemma because, as sure as eggs are eggs, he isn't the sort of person who would enjoy sitting on the outside whilst the rest of the world carries on without him.
I should point out, by the way, that Mr. Fry was the very first person I chose to 'follow' on Twitter and, more often than not, if I ignore his gay agenda, I've enjoyed his contributions enormously. It didn't take too long, however, to realise that he has other shortcomings - and one in particular (which doesn't seem to have attracted much attention) is his willingness to allow his popularity to be used to promote commercial products in a manner which suggested that he was being very well-remunerated for his services.
Now, Mr. Fry is not the only personality to do this and I'm not suggesting there is anything wrong with it. However, there were also occasions when he has complained about certain products and - surprise, surprise - ended up being generously 'compensated' as a consequence. To suggest that he didn't know this would probably happen is naive. Furthermore, so far as I'm concerned, in addition to being unscrupulous, it's unethical; especially when being carried out by someone renowned for endorsing products. Capitalising on an image fast approaching divinity is cynical - even if the driving force might not be the sainted Mr. Fry himself. However, he is an intelligent man and would know full-well what was 'going on'. Shame on him.
