A bullet in the head would be a far cheaper alternative than another twenty years of a whole team of medical experts sitting down and asking him about whether his father whipped him as a child, and asking how he felt about some ink smudges.
This is going to cost the British people millions if he is extradited - i sincerely hope he is tried and convicted in Thailand. He'll probably topp himself before the Thai police get their way, but you can bet he's having a lovely time in a Bangkok jail.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

For crimes against music - yes
Seriously, whatever the law of that land is is what he should be prosecuted under. If that means death for what he did, then that's the law and it has to be respected. although i suspect it'll end up as consentual with an underage minor rather than child rape. i can't see the firing squad happen - but it makes for a good tabloid shock.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

Precisely so. I was wondering how to frame my reply, and you've got it there.

Quoting WhiteHatter (Reply 10): I can't see it going to a child rape charge due to the circumstances. It wasn't a case of abducting a child off the street so underage sex is a more likely charge against him.
In the UK in the circumstances this is child rape, you dont need to abduct to get a charge of rape.

If I am correct, Glitter has several convictions for sexual crimes in the UK. It's a shame that we cannot find some way to physiclly alter people like him with a drug or treatment (like a sexual lobotamy) that would end those beheavors forever. So he went too far in the wrong place and faces a possible death penalty. While sad in one way, he had to know what he was doing was wrong by any standard of moralty and will have to face a horrible price for it.
