Raoul Moat/Percy Topliss similarities....

Just read that its alleged Moat's family scattered his ashes in Rothbury and left a little shrine to him. This keeps alive the divided opinion on him; the Jeremy Kyle audience think he's some sort of hero while everyone else knows he was a cowardly rat-bag.

However this got me thinking about Percy Topliss (The Monocled Mutineer). Some people only believe the TV dramatisation of Topliss' life, which the writer himself admitted was a work of fiction, and see him as some sort of gallant figurehead in Tommy Atkins' struggle against the Red Tabs. However others, and this is especially true in the area where he was shot, want nothing to do with the man or his story.

Seems nothing really changes, especially human nature.
