Gary Glitter 2 Weeks, 6 Days ago  
I'd have more faith in the Parole Board if I could be convinced they saw evidence that GG is still a danger to society rather than fearing the media backlash were they to allow his release.

I doubt he wants to be out.

Where will he go and stay? Vanessa George has a support group in the Midlands but rarely goes out alone. My sister in law has then her around locally. The UK is only tiny but overpopulated. There parts of Europe that Glitter can't go to, he can't be a nomad or live in a trailer park in America. The public travelled miles to Dorchester go to the hostel he was in. The press turned that town in to a media circus along with YouTube so-called Auditors.

I am annoyed, I use to like his records when I was younger, I knew pretty much all his lyrics. The act was terrible and it was cheese on steriods. He was on the bill with a lot of huge bands at the time like Saxon(yuck) and Girl School. I can't believe he pissed it all the way. I have a theory he wanted to get caught.

In a bizarre way I wish a staunch journo could get an interview with no narrative and no interuption. I can imagine Rod Liddle having an interview with GG, whilst puffing away on a cigarette in a prison wing. Just letting GG dig a hole.

I hate it when journos talk over people when they asked a question, in the first place. Emily Maitlis is a joke and is cashing hard on the one Prince Andrew interview. Martin Sheen will do anything for a pay cheque.

Interviews are so different now to the "old days". So often now it is just about the interviewer. Watch old Parkinson - or our host actually on Ent USA - the interviews are actually about the person being interviewed.

Although there is a lot of interesting stuff online/You Tube to access. But that tends to be more niche interviews/events with writers, artists, historians or scientists.

It appeared that he didn't make any efforts to attend any programmes in prison to address his sexual urges. He could have just gone along with what was required, he didn't have to believe in it. With regards to any risk, he hasn't committed any offences in the uk since 1998 when he got caught looking at dodgy pictures. The conviction from 2015 dated back to the 70s and the conviction in Vietnam has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
