'If you look at a photograph of Holocaust victims, as we were encouraged to do at school, that wasn't because they wanted us to go out and be anti-semitic.'

I have a sneaky suspicion that the PR world is going to go into overdrive to get Chris Langham back on our screens

he's on 'shrink wrap' (awful name) with old pal Dr Pamela Connolly tonight

Someone we know edited this episode of 'Shrink Wrap' and said after watching it all he has no doubt Mr. Langham is guilty as hell. Interesting.

Have you seen the adverts for said programme? It borders on being a literal translation of the "John Fashanu! John Fashanu! JOHN FASHANU!" skit on The Day Today

I think everyone knows hes guilty but his expensive lawyers have found a legal loophole ( like Townsend ) where they can claim it was 'reserch'.

What kind of 'reserch' is it when you have to find one of these sites, pass over your credit card details ect ect.

Can't belive hes actually getting the airtime.

i for one won't stop appreciating his work just because he's a paedophile. Imagine if you aced an exam but the board failed you because you were a nazi?

Yeah, he's done some terrible things and he should be punished for them. Doesn't mean his comedy timing is at all affected.

I don't think anyone was saying that it was.

Somehow I dont see the mainstream press 'giving him the airtime' as a few people have suggested on this thread...

What would you call 'airtime' if you don't think tonight was?

The Guardian wrote about Chris Langham's wife...

Quote:
A petite, pretty woman with cropped blonde hair and a smile that reaches the corner of her eyes


... starting to sound like the judge in the Jeffrey Archer trial, who couldn't believe a man who had such a "fragrant" wife would ever look for sexual satisfaction elsewhere?

but he didn't pay for the images, they were off a free peer to peer thing, weren't they? that's why his appeal went through. i dunno if you can argue with that when the evidence has been presented and accepted in court.

No wonder he won't touch his kids, they're fucking mental.
