Unbroadcast excerpt from a radio interview Lydon did with the BBC in 1978 [eventually released on a reissue of the first PIL album last year].

Truth to power. Lyndon was good at that then, still good at it now.

Thanks for that. If the rumour was so strong in 1978, too bad nothing was done about it at the time

Yeah, it's just so hypocritical, isn't it?

There is an inquiry in Australia at the moment into institutional child abuse, which has considered the cover up by the likes of the Catholic Church where known paedophiles were simply moved from one parish to another but kept on reoffending. Those who failed to intervene should be held responsible. In one local case a priest offended in about ten different parishes, involving dozens of young people over many years.
