'Tirade'? You must be thinking of someone else on this forum."

OK, I suppose I need to spell it out:

Bob Dylan, George Orwell, Hugh McDiarmid, Elton John, Bill Wyman, Johnny Handle, Sting, Bono (and as far as I know, 'Baz Bowdidge'!) etc., etc., etc. all changed their names and no-one (as far as I know) fatuously accused them of "prejudice".

So you didn't like Ewan MacColl - get over it and stop pointlessly and mindlessly belabouring his corpse!
