The Most Curious Jonathan King

After the convicted paedophile Jonathan King endorsed Jeremy Corbyn last week, he’s gone on to condemn Brexit, laud ‘woman manhandler’ Mark Field and share all sorts of his other rather odd political views

When the convicted paedophile Jonathan King’s support for a candidate in an election is making headlines, one knows the world is going bonkers.

Last week, after Guido Fawkes reported that King had endorsed Jeremy Corbyn as “decent, honest, old, wise and unambitious” on Twitter, the Labour leader’s fate looked sealed. “With friends like these, who needs enemies” commented many and in the days since the disgraced abuser of teenage boys has gone further and shared many other equally odd and contradictory views.

Aside from yesterday intervening to say most people “don’t really care either way” about Brexit, King claimed Labour’s John McDonnell to be someone he “liked the sound of” on Sunday. On October 31st, he added that ‘Bosie The Clown’s’ chop-changing Tory to Lib Dem to Change UK to God knows where next sister, Rachel Johnson, was “lovely and nice” and more recently, on the 3rd November, he lauded the now ex-MP for Westminster, Mark Field – a man recently videoed “manhandling women” – as a “decent guy.”

Given his all-over-the-place track record, who on earth will the fruitcake Jonathan King be supporting next?

  1. He should be banned from Twitter. It is shocking this criminal is again profiting and getting publicity. Him and Rolf Harris should be sent to a far, far faraway place. Shame on Twitter for allowing him to remain.

  2. I’d be extremely wary of King. What makes him so dangerous is that he’s very manipulative. In conversation, he often comes across as a witty and charming eccentric. He’ll typically regale others with several entertaining stories about his life in the music business and encounters with various stars – from Marlene Dietrich to the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix. You can well understand how he managed to do what he did and reel others in. Simon Cowell actually put bail money up for him, Tim Rice testified in his defence, and Ozzy/Sharon Osbourne sent him good luck wishes/presents for his trial. Even Jon Ronson who covered the trial as part of a special report admitted to growing to like King on a personal level.

    However, having listened to the harrowing evidence/testimonies from men who did not know each other – but had similar tales to tell, there was no doubt that King was guilty.

    It therefore astounds me that he’s allowed to use the Internet, and build up a cult following and influence.

    And shame on Stephen Fry and Boy George for following him on Twitter.
