Re: The Life And Scandalous Times Of John Nathan-Turner

I think some of the papers are trying to spin this into something of Savile like proportions, when clearly it's a very different scenario. The reference in the Mirror article about them being treated like rock stars is very telling and I wonder if the media are going to go after every personality who's ever misued their poistion to get sex?

That doesn't make it right, but as far as we can determine this was concensual, and the main focus appears to be that they were under the then age of consent, which seems to suggested the Mirror/Mail feel the age of consent being 21 for homosexuals was right at the time?
