The sad death of David Bowie has brought with it the usual, generally poignant, host of Twitter tributes. Among these are some posts that are reactions to David Cameron’s own tribute. These range from the splenetic (e.g. surely he’s too busy fucking pigs’ mouths to listen to Bowie) to the indignant (e.g. what right does HE have to even comment on Bowie’s death?).
Now I am no Cameron fan; I disagree with a number of his policies and views; likewise those of Corbyn. Cameron may or may not have been a Bowie fan; Bowie was non-committal about his own politics. Whatever the case, the moment you believe it is genuinely morally repugnant for an elected Prime Minister to say something nice in tribute to a rock icon who died is the moment when you should really turn the mirror on yourself and wonder just how twisted your world view has become.
