  • Richard Desmond - President. Desmond gave £2million to Norwood prior to his appointment. It is reported that a big row broke out over the appointment over another matter. According to the Daily Mail, the Jewish Chronicle devoted its front page and leader column to questioning the appointment. It reportedly printed a list of Desmond's 'exotic TV interests', as well as the claims he makes for them. These include: 'Red Hot Only 18: If you like them pure and fresh, Red Hot Only 18 shows the sexiest, fresh-faced beauties misbehaving'; and 'Television X Raw: Real, raw, amateur sluts All night, every night, unpolished, home-grown hussies doing what they love.' Honorary Life President and Council member Trevor Chinn is reported to have supported Desmond by saying: 'These activities (adult TV) are marginal[2].
