King slams Beeb for paedo bias

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

POP paedo Jonathan King has kicked off at the Beeb for cut­ting him from old Top of the Pops footage.

The sta­tion axed a per­for­mance of him singing in a 1976 episode of the show when it was screened on BBC4 in July.

King, 66, fired off a let­ter of com­plaint to the Beeb, which has con­firmed it’s re­ceived a let­ter but made no fur­ther com­ment.

In 2001, King ( above) was jailed for seven years for sex as­saults on boys.

Ap­par­ently con­fus­ing pae­dophilia with be­ing gay, King said: “If it’s BBC pol­icy to erase all sex of­fend­ers from his­tory, will they now start on Os­car Wilde and Sir John Geil­gud?”

He had originally ap­peared on the cult mu­sic show as 100 Ton And A Feather singing It Only Takes A Minute.
