I’m in London this week (enjoying stunning weather that’s actually hotter than LA!), and was asked today to travel to BBC studios and speak on the Jeremy Vine show about Roman Polanski’s release. I can’t understand why Gary Glitter, a convicted pedophile who has served his time, is demonised, but a man who sodomised a 13-year-old and fled sentencing is revered by so many European ‘intellectuals’. Is it because Polanski made Chinatown while Glitter has a creepy beard? Or that his greatest claim to fame wasn’t Rosemary’s Baby and The Pianist, but crappy 70s glam rock?
