Thread Name: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Subject: RE: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
The troll has some factual background for the things he says (all the best lies are that way), but the end charges he comes out with are still departures from the essential truths of McColl's life.

"Wanker" and "scum", of course, are mere pejorative namecalling, and reflect at most the troll's attitude (if indeed they are even reflective of his own thoughts and not merely trollisms).

And even if the troll's substantive charges against McColl were both true and unique to him, it would be a FAR stretch to call him "talentless"!   Wow! Talk about untruths!
