Culture News Roundup: Sympathy for the Devil

l-wren-scottMonday 17th March brought with it the tragic and untimely death of L’Wren Scott. Scott was found dead in her Manhatten apartment having hung herself around 10.00am.

Most of us wont be surprised to find a Tory thinking that money can buy him friends and happiness, but the other political parties were quick to start pointing fingers and laughing. It’s all quite pathetic really, squabbling over Facebook ‘Likes’ as if they are on a school playground. It just goes to show how little they understand the social media platform, too.
