I've heard women in a Co-op queue trying to black cat each other "boasting" they knew the latest casualty from here etc and how theywent to Wooton only a few weeks before and how they were planning going again etc.
Its fashionable amongst certain daytime tv watching members of society to have a few "Wootons" under their belt dontcha know. Even better if they can claim some association with any of the repatriated.
If only the local residents and those who knew or were related to the deceased turned up, the streets would be vastly emptier. I'd prefer too see it like that, far more respectful. She's got a very good point.
We've got a day every year to pay our respects to people we never knew.
