Showbiz guru Peter Ford has taken a swipe at the ABC after it left Craig McLachlan off its list of Logie nominees.

Ford said it highlighted a serious flaw in the award process.

Under the nomination system, TV networks put forward their own list of personalities they wish to be nominated before the public votes.

“This year, the ABC has taken it upon itself to not include Craig McLachlan, who was the star of the most successful TV drama on the ABC, or indeed Australia – The Doctor Blake Mysteries,” Ford said on 3AW Breakfast.

“Now, this has got to be based on some kind of moral policing that they’ve decided to implement because of these allegations that are lurking around – allegations that have nothing to do with Doctor Blake, anyway.

“The allegations stem from the Rocky Horror show.

“I think that is so mean.

“How dare they begin to punish somebody who has not in any way had these allegations tested?”
