As far as I am aware, Gary Glitter has never been charged with rape, sodomy or giving drugs to a thirteen year old in order to commit rape or sodomy, both of which Roman Polanski has been charged with.
France has turned Polanski, not into a pariah, but a cause celebre.
What the feck is going on? Who is the victim? They cannot both be, unless of course one's preference for underage sex is ok if you are a feted film director and not a crap 70's Glam Rocker. Polanski is out there collecting awards and Gary is wiped from all those BBC clip shows about Glam Rock. It must be something to do with how talented you are, which somehow does not seem right to me.
Well done Swissies by the way. It's a great country, and since they are not in the EU, they can do what they fucking like.
