Not very original; You Say Email:letters@liverpoolecho.co.uk.



ANodious tabloid is currently basking in the glowof its headline 'Sign on you Crazy Diamond'', in relation to the erstwhile chief executive of Barclays'' Bank.

Can I reaffirmthat this inspired line (based on Pink Floyd''s Shine on you Crazy Diamond) was actually plagiarised from our very own Half Man Half Biscuit''s ''A Lilac Harry Quinn'', which dates back as far as 1991 on their McIntyre Treadmore and Davitt album.

The record needs to be set straight, here, and the rag should maybe stick to its hopelessly contrived (read false) tales about deranged Scouse comedians partaking of people''s hamsters as a delicacy. And that''s ''The Truth'.'.
