I can’t believe how deep Britain has got entangled with the death of pop singer, Michael Jackson.
OK, we all knew that this would affect his British fans but why has the British media seen fit to give it wall to wall coverage?
Now comes the final straw. We are sending a twelve year old boy from Swansea, Shaheen Jafargholi, a performer on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, to sing at the Michael Jackson memorial service, to be held today in Los Angeles.
How short is the human memory, sending a twelve year old boy to glorify the life of an alleged paedophile.
For the sake of those of you with amnesia, back in 1993, Michael Jackson paid the Chandler family an out of court settlement of $22 million after allegedly sexually abusing their 11 year old son, Jordan.
I don’t know about you, but to me, if someone coughs up that amount of money, the word ‘allege’ suddenly morphs into ‘acknowledge’.
My thinking is, err on the side of caution and let the tribute go on Shaheen-less, or is Britain too morally bankrupt to care!
