“Poor Stuart can’t believe ur life ended in such a horrific way xx a young man who always had a smile on his face & put a smile on everybody elses face too xx I’m sure ur’s will be the brightest star in the sky xx R.I.P ma lovely.”
That is a facebook “tribute” to this man who was badly beaten, tied to a lamp post and set on fire. It’s entirely possible this was merely because he was gay but that’s by the way and I tend to adopt a policy of not commenting on live police investigations*. My point here is that that “tribute” is a travesty. I mean if he really was as nice a guy as all that what’s with the “ur”? I mean your friend has just been horrifically murdered and you can’t be flashed to type “your”?
*Hey can I be a tabloid journalist? I mean I absolutely wouldn’t have done what they disgracefully did in the Jo Yeates case which was to basically convict her landlord on the basis that he had access to the property and was “funny looking”. You know that sort of stuff has repercussions. Just ask Barry George who was sent to jail for murdering Jill Dando because he was “the local weirdo” too. That of course was a double-miscarriage of justice in that the real murderer is still at large.
