It seems auntie has her own Deadpool running.
Well, at least I'm not on it,!! too far down the list.
Ive found it realy weird, The PM and POTUS dying (like em or hate em) isnt 1st catagory?
It's (almost) an interesting insight into BBC thought processes - the third in line to the throne or the PM (no matter who holds the post), or the President of the US gets the same coverage as Bob bl**dy Dylan. It'd be akin to equal air time being given to the respective deaths of JFK and Aldous Huxley on 22 Nov 1963...
At least if Dylan kicks the bucket no-one will have to look any further than his back catalogue for a suitable dirge.
I see in the article that they quote prominent bods as .......... a former draft dodger, a balladeer and a convicted terrorist.............. how quaint.
The deaths of public figures in this category, which also includes Muhammad Ali, Bob Dylan and Nelson Mandela, will be covered as 'major breaking news stories with coverage on merit'
Covered on merit. So it's blanket coverage if Cassius, Bob and Nelson are involved in some sort of homosexual suicide pact.
