The Tenuous Link Prize
Tenuous link prize goes to the Daily Mail, and not for copying out the Press Association report that Charlie Gilmour’s father’s bandmate Roger Waters, whose father was killed in the Second World War, wrote some lyrics about soldiers.
No, the Mail manages something even thinner:
Gilmour’s* maternal grandmother, Esther Cheo Ying, was of Chinese descent and served as a major in Chairman Mao’s Red Army – not renowned for its tolerance of protesters.
*I think that this means Charlie not David.
