In today's Sunday Herald Alan Taylor says about "Jakey" Rowling that her backing the No campaign made him wish he'd stuck to Enid Blyton.
In the next paragraph he says "By spooky coincidence Ms Rowling also has a new book to promote."
I've seen both these memes before about J K Rowling. 1) No-one will buy her books now. 2) She's promoting her latest book. 1 rather cancels out 2, I would have thought. And as for 2) said of one of the biggest book sellers in history - well...However the idea of someone having an honest opinion and presenting it with no ulterior motives seems to be beyond many people.
