It’s a day of big news and I’ve got an announcement to make.
This afternoon, ITV gave my production company the green light to start making my new series on crime in the UK. 'Dick Justice' will see me returning to my roots as an investigative undercover reporter. In the first series, which we’re due to start filming next week, I’ll be going undercover to investigate what's really going on in the UK.
This news couldn't have come on a better day. I see that Jeremy Clarkson has been questioned by police because he’d quite rightly beat up some young thug giving him grief. And this is another example of why the country is calling out for a show like ‘Dick Justice’. Jeremy’s being vilified just because an ‘A’ list celebrity decided to take the law into his own hands. Yet men like Jeremy need supporting. I’ll be doing my best to get him involved in the show.
For myself, I won’t be beating up young louts, as much as I'd love to. I aim to become the first presenter to really get inside fanatical terror cells, outposts of the Russian mafia, and the importation of poorly made Chinese goods via the so called ‘sock’ mules arriving daily from the Isle of Man. The aim of the show is to expose the criminal gangs that are operating in the country and to shame them into changing their ways.
So, my law abiding friends, you heard it here first. There’ll be a new name for the law this Spring. Remember that name: Dick Justice.
If you need justice, just call me Dick.
