But what made this Great Train Robber so popular wirh the British public?
Lydon's dad was a train driver and was not impressed that fat barrelled , bungling burglar Biggs sang on a song under the name The Sex Pistols. For the record my Grandad was a train driver too. It could have been Johnny's Dad or my Grandad he coshed.
He only wanted to come back to Blighty to use the NHS. The government of the day should have refused to give him a new passport and left him at the mercy of the Brazilian health service.
His passing is no loss imho.
Just wait to see the tacky horse drawn hearse followed by the dregs of humanity
Good riddance to bad rubbish, although it is disappointing to see people making him out as some kind of Robin Hood figure as some of our press love to do. He was the lowest of the low, a common thief
