It made me feel tacky. It reminded me why the French cut off the heads of their decadent kings emulated by Elton John. At a time when ordinary working people are facing austerity, evictions, sanctions by the job centre and job cuts the amount of time spent by the media on the petulant outpourings of this over rated warbler is truly astonishing.
But then again, he IS gay, and therefore untouchable (in more ways than one). This blog believes that what one does in private is one's own business. But when someone uses some private peccadillo to gain an advantage, to try to assume a mantel of being above criticism, then that private activity becomes subject to critical comment.
The photo at the start of this posting shows Elton John (left) dressed as French King Louis XIV (or is that Louis XIVF?). It is his 50th birthday party. It is for behaviour like this that the word "Tosser" was invented. Why he chose to flaunt his obscene wealth in this way I don't know. But by doing so he shows he does not give a damn for the ordinary man in the street.
Why should we give a damn for his sensibilities in return?
