Another valuable lesson learnt.

It seems that Sir Elton's art is not indecent after all. Read here.

Seems that a bit like an MOT it has to be checked every now and again against the current general feeling in the CPS. And it takes them a full month to do it as well. Makes you think that some people were arguing for a conviction and others were not. Wonder how it would have gone if it was just straight Joe Blogg's that owned the picture instead of a gay millionaire who has access to some high up politicians and good lawyers?

I'm glad that he took the route of removing his pictures from the gallery. It may have been out of spite but it's about time someone gave a kick to these people. I would have done it straight away but he waited 9 days. What a gentleman. If he has any sense he, and everyone else with art, will never put their private pictures in art galleries again. Let's face it because of someones feelings he has been under threat of prosecution for a very serious crime. It may be a blow to art lovers everywhere but they can just go to a demolition site and have a look at the art there. A few piles of bricks should keep them happy for a while.

Next time the CPS might decide they have enough to secure a conviction and in this mickey mouse country the chances are that they would get one as well. I hope he is looking at some way of securing his collection from any future charges like this.

Wonder what the CPS would have siad if Gary Glitter or Pete Townsend owned the picture?

Henry, I didn't think about those two but you are right. I suspect the decision would have been very different.
