Of course, if it's Bono or Madonna, you might think that their sheer dedication to self-aggrandisement means we should cut them a little slack. Not so for this gentleman.
Ladies and gentlemen: Mr Jim Corr, formerly of The Corrs. Who weren't very good. At all. He's chosen the Path of David Icke. Pray for him.
