"A SONG has been dropped from an East Kilbride primary school’s Christmas show after angry parents complained it was a hit for paedophile Gary Glitter."
"Kids in P6 at Greenhills Primary have been learning the disgraced 1970s star’s festive single ‘Another Rock n’ Roll Christmas’ for the past week."
"The 1984 song was one of the most played Christmas hits on UK radio for a decade, from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, but has been blacklisted from radio stations following the depraved singer’s catalogue of convictions for child pornography and abuse."
"One furious parent said he only became aware of the school’s blunder when his daughter came home singing the song."
"The dad, who did not want to be named, said: `When I first heard that pupils at the school were going to be singing this, I thought it was a joke.`"
"`In this day and age, everyone associates Gary Glitter with his disgusting crimes and not his music.`"
"`To have children singing one of his songs makes me feel sick. It’s completely inappropriate.`"...
"South Lanarkshire Council confirmed to the News the song would be removed from the school’s Christmas show."
"Tony McDaid, head of education at South Lanarkshire Council, said: `The song was included in the set list in good faith without anyone involved knowing who had recorded and written it.`"
"`We can confirm that the song will not be in the set list for the Christmas show.`"
