So, he was abused as a child too and four of the indecent assault charges have been dropped but the others still stand.
Is that guilt seeping through him like rusty water under a Yorkshireman's door?
it shouldn't have been for pete townshend.
it's a shame as he is/was/wutever hilarious in the thick of it.
I hadn't realised how much stuff had been printed about it, just been going through the links on the right.
the jurors will have taken one look at his mouth and decided he's guilty.
and i feel sorry for everyone involved but i cant help imagining the courtroom as a scene from the thick of it, with malcolm standing outside telling him what he has to say before he goes in.
he looks really familiar. what's he in?
sounds like a bit of a dodgy defence to me...
'Sorry about that mi lord. I thought it said Kiddie Porn, as in porn made exclusively in the west midlands carpet-making enclave of Kidderminster! Easy mistake to make, I'm sure you'll agree!'
and that he erm, hasn't got any male children.
I think he's going 'down', but don't you just wish it was someone you really hated? I always think that like Wilde, people like Langham are 'singled' out to protect more influential people - a bit like the 60s as well when people were killed who'd been to seriously dodgy private parties in the country where top brass had been sticking their angry penises everywhere and no-one must ever find out. I believe this is why Joe Meek and Jo Orton really died. Probably. Sort of.
what saying it's research beforehand would actually do. Would that make him unable to wank over the pictures?
Exactly. Its so very flimsy that defence.
Sounds to me like he is already trying to chuck in the things that are likely to result in a more lenient sentance, well aware that he is hard guiity.
