Thread Name: Ewan MacColl - coward or traitor?
Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl - coward or traitor?
I dont know about traitor but the guy was a coward because if he wasnt he would have refused to fight and taken his punishment like a man not run off and hid like a little child.

Surely somebody who runs off rather than stand up and face the consequences of their actions is a definition of a coward?

For all of you defending him i think you are letting your admiration for ewan maccoll the musician to cloud your judgment on the actions of ewan maccoll the man. I am a big fan of his music and i will always regard the musician in him as a true great just as i will always regard the man himself as a disgrace and a coward.
