Some good news from the UK and three more rants
Taken from the BBC News website 03/05/03
Move to curb sex trade travel
The victims are usually teenage girls
Legal powers are being introduced by the government to ban travel abroad by paedophiles for "sex tourism".
Courts will now be able to prevent people convicted of sexual abuse from visiting specified countries - such as Thailand - where they could be a risk to children.
The court orders would follow a request from police to stop the offender going overseas.
The government is also considering tightening existing rules on paedophiles having to notify the authorities when they intend to travel abroad.
Home Office minister Hilary Benn said: "The UK already has some of the toughest measures in the world to deal with sex offenders.
"However, under current legislation the courts do not have the power to stop an offender who has been convicted of sexual offences against children from travelling abroad to abuse children.
The Sexual Offences Bill provides us with an opportunity to ensure we are doing everything we can to deal with those who commit sexual offences abroad
"We believe this is wrong and that it should be addressed."
The Home Office's new Sexual Offences Bill places a strong emphasis on protecting children from paedophiles and will require people who have committed sex offences abroad to go on the sex offenders register when they come to Britain.
Mr Benn said the Sexual Offences Bill gives the government a chance to do "everything we can to deal with those who commit sexual offences abroad".
The new travel ban will last six months, with the possibility of renewal.
Police can specify groups of countries on the order if they think a paedophile is planning a sex tour of several countries, said a Home Office spokeswoman.
It would also be possible to ban travel to an area as wide as a continent, such as Asia, she said.
The order can also extend beyond countries known for sex tourism to other destinations where police believe a paedophile is likely to abuse children, she added.
Three conditions would need to be met before an order could be made.
The orders would be effective on a person previously convicted of a sexual offence against a child under 16 either in the UK or abroad.
The court must be satisfied, from the offender's behaviour since the original offence, that a foreign travel banning order is necessary to protect children outside the UK from "serious sexual harm".
It would have to be used in situations where there are no alternative measures that could be used as effectively.
The new measure will be included as an amendment to the Sex Offences Bill.
Ministers are also due to stage a consultation exercise on strengthening the rules on foreign travel for paedophiles.
They will review how far in advance offenders should have to notify police of their travel plans - currently eight days.
They will also ask if offenders should have to give police more information of their travel plans, and will review arrangements for passing details about offenders between countries.
Now for the rantings of a sex offender
SO THE POOR OLD TABLOIDS STAGGER ON....

Is it any surprise that circulation is dropping and the sad People is (reportedly) up for sale to the knackers? The writing is SO bad and the ideas are SO unoriginal - every few weeks there's another tired story, based on previous fictions, badly re-written. This week ALEXANDER HITCHEN, who, unfortunately for him, failed to jump ship to the News of the World, unlike his predecessor LUCY PANTON and ex-editor NEIL WALLIS, regurgitated the old "beaten up" concept and ran a People EXCLUSIVE that was, yet again, complete rubbish. Do you know, I've never even been verbally abused in almost l8 months of the prison experience, and certainly not slapped, nudged, beaten or bruised. The staff and officers are very efficient. The inmates are generally a far better crowd, morally, than the bunch I was mixing with before I came in (the media). As I've said before, the pressure of Prison life tends to make prisoners MORE tolerant and LESS aggressive. Unlike journalists. But the key thing to remember is - the fastest growing area of crime is SEX OFFENDERS. This is NOT because we've become a nation of perverts but because the ludicrous laws enable the police and CPS to gain convictions on no proof or evidence at all. So British jails are JAMMED with sex offenders. One key officer told me that, having seen the conviction sheets, prisoners on THE MAIN are 62% sex offenders (a reality the inmates try hard to keep concealed). Virtually every prison has a large VP (vulnerable prisoner) unit and they are getting bigger and bigger. So the tabloid "NONCE" agression is a load of old rubbish. As is sad old ALEX'S regurgitation of the "KING BEATEN UP IN BELMARSH" of a few months ago. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
IF WE GO TO WAR, PRISONERS MUST BE FREED

Could any HUMAN RIGHTS experts reading this message (and I gather we are now getting over l0,000 visits a day on KING OF HITS.COM) consider this theory and let us know whether it stands up? It is surely a serious breach of human rights for a government to hold someone against their will, when they have put lives in danger by declaring war on another territory. If we basically do not agree with the policy, we are entitled to leave the country. All citizens must be allowed to express their choice of either staying, and risking death, or moving to another country, where lives are NOT at risk. I don't believe, since the UK signed up for the human rights contract, there has been a war to test this situation but, if one is now declared, it is, surely, a fundamental human right to choose. And that applies to prisoners as much as to free citizens. Over to you, Blunkett.

JOHN MAJOR came across so well on FROST, I wouldn't be surprised to see him as the NEXT Tory leader..... I'd be willing to pay úl million for Paul McCartney NOT to play at my birthday bash!......Gareth doing Spirit in the Sky is AWFUL.....Roman Polanski gets Best Director and Best Film - I got seven years.....the amazing thing about JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is the question - why are the American pop stars SO much better rehearsed and classy than our home grown ones?
A Note from Archnut
If i am upsetting anyone by continuously posting these rants pleas let me know, but i feel that as the most well known of my group of abusers i want his name to be kept in the frame. This maybe is misguided of me, but i feel i want as many people to read this crap and remember just who Jonathan King, Chris Denning and Rob Randall are
They are ALL predatory paedophiles all with convictions but we are still after a few more.
If anyone from WALTON ON THAMES, SURREY reads this please inform Deniz Corday that he is far from forgotten.
Deniz corday is the former owner of the Walton Hop teen disco during the time of the visits by King and Denning, Randall was a DJ there as were both King and Denning
And all that was left was hope
