Crocodile Tears?

Much as I regret the death of Ian Tomlinson and sincerely hope that the police officer responsible gets what he deserves, I find it rather sickening that the widow is so publicly bereft and distressed. She's lost her soul-mate, her rock, her best friend in all the world, and can hardly be sufficiently comforted by all the media attention.

Is this the same Ian Tomlinson who was living in a hostel and described as homeless because his wife had thrown him out because of his drinking?

I have plenty of sympathy for Tomlinson but his wife seems to be of the Tricia/Jeremy Kyle mindset where personal trauma is mainly to be milked for maximum benefit in the national media with scant regard for the realities of the underlying situation.

Despite being way further down the social scale this whole circus reminds me of the way the Blairs behave.

Modern Britain don't you just love it?
