Chris Langham arrested and released on bail for child porn charges.

He hasn't been charged, though, and claims innocence. God, I hope that's true.

I heard that on the radio this morning. I really thought it was just me dreaming until I heard it again on the news.

I'm sure it's not true, and I hope it blows over as soon as possible.
I can't believe the police are allowed to make the name public when there hasn't even been a charge.

I honestly don't think it's true, I refuse to believe it unless he's charged and there's strong evidence against him. And even then I won't want to believe it.

That really shocked me when I first heard it, but I'm glad to see that he wasn't charged with anything. I really hope that it's not true.

The newspaper says he was 'released on bail until February'.

So what happens in February?

I hope it's untrue as well. I hate to see people being unjustly framed for this sort of shit.

People like Pete Townsend use their credit cards directly to access this shit and get away with it, but people like Michael Jackson and Chris Langham are arrested and their names are dirtied, even though there is no evidence to suggest their involvement in such activities other than 'implications' which generally means somebody is trying to fit them up.

Nothing to do really with the case in question but - it's unfortunate that 'child porn' can apply to both looking at a picture of a fully developed 15 year old, and a picture of a three year old kid. Both wrong, but hardly the same stratosphere.

Wise words from The Independent.

QUOTE
Chris Langham's 56-year-old life has been an eventful one, but the past few days of it have been more memorable than most. At the British Comedy Awards on Wednesday evening he was named best actor both for his exquisite turn as a psychotherapist in the brilliant BBC2 comedy Help, which he devised and co-wrote with Paul Whitehouse, and for his rather disconcertingly convincing performance in Armando Iannucci's coruscating and partly improvised political satire for BBC4, The Thick of It, as New Labour's self-pitying, hapless, easily bullied Minister for Social Affairs, the Rt Hon Hugh Abbot. The Thick of It was also crowned Best New Comedy of 2005.

But Langham did not get long to celebrate. Lugubrious even at the best of times, he was promptly plunged into the worst of times, as yesterday's Daily Mirror splashed with the story that he had been arrested 17 days earlier for alleged internet-related child pornography offences, and released on bail until February. Rarely has the British "tall poppy syndrome" of building people up only to chop them down been quite so rapidly deployed.

Whatever, Langham has not been charged with an offence and on the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven - a cornerstone of our judicial system which takes on the consistency of a rubber brick when "celebrities" are involved - it seems safer and fairer to concentrate on Thursday's headlines, rather than yesterday's.
