Langham Classed As 'Townshend Category' Child Porn User

03-08-07

ACTOR Chris Langham is expected to quickly revive his showbusiness career after being classed as a "Townshend Category" child porn user.

The opening chord from 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and all is forgotten

Experts say the star is likely to be forgiven by society because of his involvement in such cutting edge programmes as The Thick of It and People Like Us.

NSPCC spokeswoman Jemima Smyth explained: "The fact remains that he has been in some really great, cool shows.

"Society must ask itself whether his crimes should preclude the continued enjoyment of his high quality comedy programmes, many of which are worth watching over and over on DVD because they work on a number of levels and have lots of hidden gags."

Media analyst Bill McKay added: "By writing such classics as My Generation and Pictures of Lily, Townshend ensured his offences were soon forgotten while the likes of Gary Glitter were treated as the glam-rock scum they are.

"Langham should thank his lucky stars he didn't make his name on Keeping Up Appearances or Are You Being Served?

"If so he may have found himself in the same catgeory as Jonathan King, who, let's be honest, was jailed for Una Paloma Blanca."
