Baying for blood
What I do know, and find very distasteful, is the sight of the great British public, encouraged by our salacious media,.baying for blood and waiting eagerly for all the prurient details to be published. And of course there is an exhibition of that distasteful trait whereby we take pleasure when the mighty fall, when our idols prove to have feet of clay, when, in other words, they are just like the rest of us.
As to the politicians trying to make capital for themselves by braying moral indignation at every opportunity, they are lucky that they are already so far beneath my contempt that I have no venom left to spit at them.
I am also very uneasy that the DJ, being dead, has no chance to defend himself. One consequence of this is that the media are already treating him as guilty before any evidence has been produced. It really is sickening, and the fact that he was an egoistical pillock should not prevent him from being treated with proper respect and due process of law.
