Rik Mayall

I have to say I am rather perplexed at the Diana-like outpouring of grief over the death of Rik Mayall.

What did he do for society apart from making people think it is cool to sneer?

Does he not typify everything that went wrong with the United Kingdom in the 1990s.

Heaven knows, I am the last person to defend John Major.  See here.

But in endlessly kicking a party when it is down, did he not make it so much easier for Tony Blair to coast to power?

Would they have cheered so loudly for Tony Blair, would they have given him such a free licence to act if Rik Mayall had not made the opposition so uncool?
