No de­fence for ju­ve­nile prank

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

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.
