Now corrected.</p> <p>I have to say that my sympathy for Moat was increased by reading an <a href=”http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/jul/17/raoul-moat-brother-angus-moat”>interview with his brother</a> in The Guardian. A sad family story, there’s no doubt. But even Angus, the brother, condemns the Facebook page (which has now been removed by its creator).</p> <p>Sympathy, yes; but he’s still not a hero, or a “legend”. Charlie Brooker <a href=”http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jul/19/charlie-brooker-offensive-facebook-groups”>talks sense</a> on the matter, as you might expect.</p></div>Britain todaycharlie brookermoathttps://devilgate.org/blog/2010/07/20/moat-again/Tue, 20 Jul 2010 16:58:23 GMT
