Me and David Bowie: journalists crank up the grief

by | 11th, January 2016

David Bowie has died. You might have hard the sad news. He was brilliant. All day long the BBC has been paying tribute to the great entertainer who was “edgy”, ” cutting edge”, challenging and so on and on and on. That’s the BBC that has a deep history of banning the edgy, challenging, cutting edge, etc. It really is such utter balls from the State censor.

But if you want toe-curling tribute to David Bowie you can compare and contrast the reaction of the man’s own son, Duncan Jones, to that of Times columnist Caitlin Moran:

More tributes to the singer everyone loved, admired, adored and never thought odd or a bit right-wing to follow.
