The SMH has the bombshell news that Harvey Weinstein is standing Canberra up and won’t be coming for the huge celebrations being planned for him.

When we hear more on the impacts of this we’ll let you know but we’re hearing the events are being shelved.

What’s Your opinion?

Looks like Weinstein simply blew Australia off and told a porkie.

Far from banned from flying (and first-class travel negates thrombosis risk) , he flew to Zurich at the end of September; back to the US then off to the London Film Festival for a week in mid October; at a film opening in LA end October; White House film screening November 7; back to LA to appear on Piers Morgan November 14; then back to New York two nights ago.

Not much evidence of convalescence following a knee operation in among that schedule!

Banned wasn’t a term used. Even if it was a farce, he will be back for the event next year unless the sponsors acquit themselves. None of the claims you make with regard to HW whereabouts are in dispute. That isn’t any evidence that is adverse to his reason for cancelling attendance at the Canberra event? Is it? Im not sure what you are leading to with the ‘Nazi Sympathiser’ comment. Weinstein is Jewish, any reasonable person is unlikely to sympathise with the Nazis, even more so someone raised in a Jewish family. I don’t understand why you are taking any joy in the cancellation of the event. It is a real blow for the CIFF, and Canberra. Lucky we have you and the bling ring to find out if he is just faking eh.

Have another think, and don’t invite him back. He blew you off (rude!) because he hadn’t realised the Kennedy anniversary was coinciding with the planned visit. It was convenient to haul out his knees as an excuse. One that didn’t wash, as my little googling minute exposed, because he WAS travelling throughout the time when the supposed knee operation took place.

And yes, he’s Jewish, so who knows why he funded and distributed W.E., a film pretending to be a factual account, but that denied Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII’s roles in WWII – they weren’t actually just Nazi supporters, but traitors. That’s why they had to be sent to the Carribean. Basically, HW behaves like a piece of sh*t and, as I said, it’s good that he never disgraced our city! Anyway, New Yorkers are a pain. Get someone from the west coast!

I don’t blame him. Why would anyone with half a brain actually make the conscious decision to come to Canberra. It is arguably a bigger hole than the Gold Coast, has less culture than a small tub of yogurt and the people here live in such a narrow bubble it is breathtaking.

I hafta say that I appreciate your ongoing engagement with the Canberra community, and the uninhibited manner in which you express the evident joy that you experience from living here.

It’s a real breath of fresh air!
