BIGGEST FAN: Gangland boss John G–illigan is said to be an avid listener of Williams’s show (Surely “only listener” – Ed)

NEWSTALK HOST Paul Williams has branded all the people who don’t listen to his show as “scum”.
The crime writer has taken over the microphone from Ivan Yates for Newstalk’s breakfast show but listeners have been slow to move the dial.
“Scum!” said a disgusted Williams. “Don’t underestimate what people who won’t listen to my show would do.
“They’d kill your granny, my granny and their own grannies before breakfast. The General, the Coach, forget about those guys, they have nothing on people who’d rather listen to Morning Ireland. They don’t fear the guards, anyone, they have no respect. They’re animals.”
