The Guardian have (finally) published their obituary.

It’s warmer than many would have expected, but that might be because none of the three authors work for the paper.

Fucking so weird that a paper of any sort, left/right/whatever, takes so long to print an obituary about another journalist (not y’know a dictator or a famous criminal or something) just because she upset a few poshos.

Aye someone so young wouldn’t have had a pre-made one I guess
