‘ELTON John says it’s “one of the most disgraceful things” he’s ever seen.

The Princess Diana Open Sewer

“It’s purely ugly. It looks like a sewer,” opines the noble knight. “It looks like one of those water park rides that’s just collapsed on the floor. It’s hideous. Hideous. Disgraceful!”

Well, we’ve always thought his toupee was a ropey, but if he hates it that much it makes you wonder why he got it in the first place.

Perhaps the key lies in a later quote about his various addictions: “It’s about the ability to look yourself in the mirror and think you’re OK.”

We jest, of course. It turns out that he’s not talking about his syrup at all. He is speaking of the Diana Memorial Fountain.

And the Express seems to agree with Sir Elton’s opinion. It quotes the view of an unimpressed visitor, who likens the monument to a storm drain.

Sir Elton suggests that the money should have been spent on a hospital wing instead of a fountain.

A hospital wing in the middle of Hyde Park? Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it…’
