Don’t get fooled by Channel 4 satirists: Carter-Ruck’s champion Gerald Howarth MP talks gibberish on paedophilia

with 2 comments

For a glorious period around the turn  of the century, satirist Chris Morris produced a series of TV shows demonstrating just how easy it was to get attention-hungry politicians and celebrities to spout utter gibberish on camera.

In yesterday’s debate on freedom of speech in Parliament, one of Morris’s ex-victims, Gerald Howarth MP, seemed keen to exercise his critical judgement in defence of beleagured libel bunnies Carter Ruck.

If this is the best champion that the law firm can find, than perhaps they really are in trouble. Here are some choice clips of Gerald Howarth sharing his wisdom on paedophilia with Chris Morris’s Brass Eye back in 2001:

“How brazen and shameless is the modern paedophile?”

“I’d like to play you a piece of music…”

“Keep away from the guy with the funny eye”

“Gerald Howarth here for No Offenc”

  1. Just read the wikipedia account of Chris Morris’s programme on paedophilia. For me the most telling and funniest episode is that Beverley Hughes should have called the programme ‘unspeakably sick’ without having seen it. This is the same woman who told me there was no evidence for the attack on the Titanic bus in which my daughter was killed. Presumably she hadn’t read the letter from my MP either.
