No defence for juvenile prank
Sir, – I am surprised at the attitude of responsible readers to the juvenile actions of a grown man who placed a skeleton in a prominent position next to his house in Carnoustie just before the recent Open Championship.
Depicting a skeleton of the England football manager, at a time of pent-up emotions, during the World Cup, showed a lack of respect.
It is not the kind of behaviour that should be condoned.
There was a lot of hyped-up praise of the England team by TV reporters and perhaps that hit a nerve, but this was not just banter – it was merely an attempt to have a laugh at someone else’s expense.
