Glitter is always a threat to children
EVIL Gary Glitter has never shown a shred of remorse for preying on innocent kids.
The image of the pop paedophile trawling the internet weeks after his release from jail is sickening.
A recording of the disgraced star apparently talking about the Dark Web while holding a smartphone at his bail hostel is deeply disturbing.
Don’t forget this is a man who admitted possessing 4,000 child abuse images on his laptop.
It is bad enough that the pervert only served half of the 16-year prison sentence he was handed down for sexually abusing young girls.
At his 2015 trial, the judge blasted Glitter for failing to atone for “real and lasting” damage to his victims.
He told him: “It is difficult to overstate the depravity of this behaviour.’’
Glitter also refused to engage with rehabilitation programmes while in jail.
It is no wonder that lawyers for his victims are sounding alarm bells.
The probation service and the police are responsible for monitoring his behaviour while he is in his taxpayer-funded hostel.
They must check this monster’s phone. If he is in breach of his release conditions he must be sent back to prison immediately.
Be bold, Chancellor!
JEREMY Hunt has a real chance this week to rev up Britain’s stalled economy.
His Budget plans to prop up cash-strapped families struggling with the cost-of-living crisis are welcome.
The Chancellor reveals today he will scrap the extra costs of pre-paid energy meters to help poorer households.
He will also boost childcare cash to get parents on benefits back to work.
These are welcome measures but they are only tiny steps towards the growth the country desperately needs.
We hope Mr Hunt will see sense and axe the planned hike in corporation tax that threatens to strangle business recovery.
He should also give hard-pressed motorists a break by freezing fuel duty.
It’s time for big ideas Mr Hunt — the sooner the better!
Stamp of approval
AMID the storm over the Government’s migrant policy, one thing has gone unnoticed.
Germany’s commissioner for migration Joachim Stamp has raised the prospect that his government may also process asylum claims in Africa.
Rishi Sunak can take some comfort if even Germans — usually at the heart of EU liberalism — see some merit in his plan.
