    What question? Have a missed your take on the topic at hand? Sorry if I have, it is harder work when you have several people to contend with.

    You’re comparing someone directly evil to someone linked with evil? It’s a desperate reach, they aren’t like for like.

    It is, everyone has a wonky moral compass. I'm a hypocrite in several avenues. Man City being another one.

    I don't necassairly support these acts, I just appreciate the talent. That doesn't always translate to monetary support.

    Is there anything that I or anyone could say that would change your mind on this?

    Of course. I'm not myopic.

    In that case, given your views on things such as Man City and their owners and Amazon, how can you defend directly funding a convicted paedophile? His crimes are far worse than anything amazon have done, and as bad as anything City’s owners may or may not have done.

    I read somewhere that the revenue Glitter will get will be tiny by the time everyone’s taken their cut, but it angers me, and will probably stop me from paying for a film that I really want to see because knowing that the sick **** would even make a penny makes me sick.

    I didn’t need back up, I was the back up bro.

    Your “jokes” need to at least make sense, I came in halfway through.

    Well, for a start, I didn't go to see Joker knowing that Garry Glitter would be featured or that he would be getting paid for it. I would have gone to see it anyway, maybe naively putting the inclusion down to ignorance. Also because I wanted to see the film, and 20 seconds of the leader would've been excused in my hypocritical mindest. I suppose I could justify it by saying that Glitter is still entitiled to earn a living, despite his horrible crimes.

    As for squaring the other things in conjunction, I can't. I can only do my best and accept my own failures. I don't believe having a weak moral stance on certain things should make everything else a wash. I'll still complain about sweatshops and employee abuse, despite taking drugs and adding to some form of misery somewhere because of it.

    I apologise, Red. There was some good discussion going on about the film before all this.

    I thought I'd accidentally strayed onto that seldom trod path known as the current affairs section.

    There's an excellent review from Mark Kermode that I watched yesterday. Check it out if you haven't seen it. He makes a great point about dance being such a great way of conveying inward emotion in an outward manner. Then going on about how he'd actually like to know something about interpretive dance, so he could appreciate it more when it appears in art he watches. I thought exactly the same thing :laugh:
