As one of those who has so far not reacted to the widespread criticism of the reaction to the sad death of Peaches Geldof, I thought I’d better explain my decision not to react to the criticism of those who did react critically.

Critics who have reacted so critically to the reactions should realise that any reaction or lack of it to death and loss should not be reacted to critically – lest the critical reaction is criticised for any reaction which could be reacted to critically.

I hope this short statement clears up any misunderstandings there may have been about my lack of reaction to the criticism of the reaction to the tragic and desperately sad death of a young mother.

If not – let me make myself clearer.

We should all shut up and let her family and friends grieve.
