Why is Ronnie Biggs being sanctified by the media?

It is disappointing to see how this morning’s news media is reacting to the death of Great Train Robber, Ronnie Biggs.

He spent his entire life wanting something for nothing. Once his stolen money started to run out and his health started failing, he came back here expecting the rest of us to pay for his healthcare.

He wasn’t a “loveable rogue”, he was a parasite and a criminal and an attempted murderer.

His death as a dribbling, imbecilic, stroke-addled incontinent is about all the dignity he deserves.

with some of the heaviest editing that any of my whinges has ever had, the Standard printed it:
