Gordon in the morning: Crimes and allegations

Curious - Bizarre does carry Richard White's story that Amy Winehouse was "pushed back" on stage in Belgrade when she tried to leave - complete with the official denial:

But he denied Zoe's claims that Amy was pushed on stage and said she voluntarily walked on with a friend.
Yes, it has the story, but you wouldn't know from looking at the front page of Bizarre, which instead makes space for the sentencing of Blake Fielder-Civil to prison.

Gordon is on hand to co-author the claims that Louis Walsh is being investigated over claims of a sexual assault. Walsh denies the claims, and it shan't detain us here, but it's worth reading the first paragraph of the report for a classic piece of Sun writing:
X FACTOR judge Louis Walsh is being probed by police over claims he indecently assaulted a young dad in a nightclub toilet.
"Young dad" is, of course, code for "normal, heterosexual male who has fathered children and so clearly wouldn't be in the toilet looking for that sort of thing, if that's what you're thinking".
