You may say I'm a dreamer

So John Galliano is to join the likes of Richard Keys & Andy Gray languishing in the insufferable class - the lowest of all social classes in modern times. They are the intolerable intolerants and the outrageous outcasts. Say what you like about them (they would about you), they know how to get people who normally don't give a shit to give a shit.

You're in one camp or the other, usually. Either you think awful opinions should be punishable or you believe they should be kept separate from other areas of life. Mostly, discussion focuses on one person's ability to do his (have there been any hers yet?) job properly but that's not the main issue for me. I'm in the good riddance camp simply because I'm fine with the possibility of someone much nicer coming along and having all their money instead. That, frankly, strikes me as being a much better version of the sort of world I'd like to live in.

(Please feel free to point me in the direction of my own words when John McCririck gets made the next head designer at Christian Dior.)
