How would have have felt about her death if she was a Liverpool fan?

She often said she changed to become a red following marriage but deep down like her dad she was a blue.
Like half the scousers to have ever played for Liverpool then, and Paul McCartney. They all seem to "support Liverpool" when they get famous and need a bit of world wide appeal, eh?

One of my neighbours was playing her music full bore yesterday afternoon. Fair enough if you're a fan and you want to pay your respects by playing her music on the day of her funeral that's ok. Just don't inflict her awful singing voice on everyone else.

Have a little more respect for the dead please.

Also coming from a scouse family I know its not uncommon for scousers of Cillas generation to follow both teams.
You should have been here when Thatcher died. We proper went to town on her. Mind, she was the anti Christ.

My road got blocked off for her funeral, fair enough have it in Liverpool but she is from Scotland road the other end of the city.

Oh yea and as said, she was a Tory.

She loved the city so much she spent fuck all time in it after getting famous.
True, had homes in London,Spain and Denham (Bucks) Couldn't sing a bloody right note either, could you imagine a younger version of her on singing talent shows today? She'd be out after the first auditions.

I do find the comments about her moving a bit odd though, she grew up in a very poor area? Of course she would move, especially in the 1950s when everything is in London. It's still true now, if you get very wealthy you go to London or the home counties.

How much time did Oasis spend in glorious Manchester after they got big, alty?

I don't keep tabs on how often the Gallaghers visit Manchester, but in fairness they don't crowbar in a reference to the place during every fucking interview/TV appearance. Cilla Black traded on being a professional Scouser despite the fact she seemed to have no interest in ever returning to the place.

Even McCartney has his own interest in his city, helped set up LIPA and so on. Being a Scouser became a 'down to earth' image thing for her, nothing more.

Anyone from Scotland Road who votes Tory should be fucking ashamed. My nan (also from Scotland road) couldn't abide her for the reasons outlined.

As for the accent, there is no way in hell she genuinely talked like that after nearly 50 years away from Liverpool.

You're slipping into Home Counties mode as the years go by, are you? :D

She did turn her back on the Tories later on.
