and what was her function in life??

Many of the newspapers today, as well as the BBC website, have several pages devoted to this individual who, I gather, has topped herself.

Not being a member of the snowflake generation I have absolutely no idea who she was nor why the papers think I should be remotely interested in her.

Clapton is God I have absolutely no idea who she was nor why the papers think I should be remotely interested in her. But interested enough to read about her then.

No, I didn't read about her - I simply couldn't avoid the first 5 or 6 pages of the newspapers having her "story" splashed all over them before I'd turned over enough pages to actually reach the day's real news.

Whoever she is, it is so sad for her family and loved ones when a person takes their own life. It seems that people in “show business “ may be famous and have money but have the same mental health issues as the rest of us. A bit of sympathy is needed- she had a variety of TV roles including winning “Strictly come dancing “

Scandal has always sold Newspapers.

It is us that buys them.

In many ways, we are at fault and, don't say "NOT ME". Think of Princess Diana among the many, who have been hounded by the Press because, such News and Photos sell Copy.

No that is not so.

Prosecutions are Regina v Accused.

The victim is just a witness in the case. Domestic Abuse/Violence has historically often resulted in victims withdrawing their statement meaning that a prosecution has been dropped. Now where there is other evidence to support a prosecution then even if the victim refuses to make a statement or withdraws their statement the prosecution can continue.
