The Torygraph contains an extraordinary headline (I didn’t read the story) about claims by the brother of someone called “Susan Boyle”. I am not aware of the young lady. I assume that she is a pop singer of some sort, perhaps a member of one of these “girl groups” about which one hears so much these days. Perhaps Dave can illuminate this little corner of popular culture; he likes to keep abreast of modern music.
Anyway, Mr Boyle has expressed fears that his sister might be assassinated in the same way that John Lennon was.
I find this disturbing and disrespectful.
John would never have courted controversy by comparing his status to someone even more famous from the past.
