There’s an “exclusive” tribute from Boy George: “'I always dreaded this day, I hoped he was immortal': Boy George writes touching tribute to friend David Bowie after star's shock death … George penned a tribute letter for his friend David who died Sunday … ’I first saw David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust performing at Lewisham Odeon in 1973 just before my twelfth birthday,' George started his letter … The Karma Chameleon singer said Bowie 'validated me and made me realize I was not alone’”.
Because yesterday’s paper, published before news of the death was announced, contained a typically nasty hatchet job on Bowie from the pen of Jan Moir. Under the headline “THE BITTERNESS OF MRS BOWIE”, readers were told “She claims he forced her into a debauched open marriage - then 'poisoned' their son against her. Now Angie Bowie's hitting back in viciously indiscreet style”.
More to the point, "working" at the Daily Heil automatically means you are a coward, liar and hypocrite with a strain of fascism thrown in.
None of them have ever done an honest day's work in their lives.
"Hurrah for the blackshirts!" anyone?
I seem to remember Lynda lee-potter telling us that princess Diana was irresponsible by cavorting with Dodi in the Caribbean, while her sons sat silently at home. Cue Diana's death a week later and lee - potter rushed to inform us that Diana was a wonderful mother who cared deeply for her sons.
I'm loath to speak ill of the dead but Lee-potter - along with everyone who has ever worked for dacre - was flea-ridden; that's what comes from laying with dogs.
Happens all too often with celebs. In the case of Diana I remember watching a local news piece on her about a week or so before her death. She'd been to visit a 'psychic' and this was treated as "OMG, what is she like, such an embarrassment...".
Ah. The "halcyon" days of Lynda Lee-Potter.
Oh for the era of a merely stupid, gossiping old fish wife.
Now there is a newsroom full of nazi propagandists. All of it headed up by a Dacre that gets more loonier and reactionary as he gets older and closer to checking out.
Gotterdamerung beckons, just as it did in 1944.
The Jan Moir piece doesn't actually slag off the late Mr Bowie at all. It's actually more of a piece giving the former Mrs Bowie enough rope to hang herself as a bit disreputable. Mr Bowie's reputation barely gets a look-in. I think you're over-egging the pudding.
As was only to be expected, the DM has wheeled out a Glenda to try and regain the moral high ground by attacking the previous day's coverage. It even valued a posh house Bowie once owned, FFS.
"Forgive me, but I find this hysteria a little over the top: STEPHEN GLOVER says the Second Coming would scarcely attract as much attention as Bowie's death"
What's the male equivalent of a Glenda?
To Arnold 11:34.
The male equivalent of "a Glenda" is "a MacKenzie." Also known as a gobshite.
