      Morrissey used him to further his career. Horrible. Not into that.

      It's just struck me for the first time that this image has an echo of the Years of Refusal cover.

      This.
      Will be just another excuse for people like Barbara Windsor to glorify past actions..... the usual cliches..... ''they never harmed women or children....''

      Didn't Hindley die in 2002 or 03?

      I didn't know anything about this man, but the six inch nails creep me out!!

      And whoever pointed out the resemblance to the cover of YoR...it does remind me of this photo!! :eek:

      Clueless mindless drivel. Even for you, Celibate.

      Just because your daft mind thinks it, doesn't make it true. Get someone with a grain of reality to peer review your posts in future.

      The Moors murderer Myra Hindley died in hospital aged 60 - Friday 15 November 2002 18.01 GMT after suffering respiratory failure.

      She was taken to West Suffolk hospital at Bury St Edmunds with a suspected heart attack.

      Hindley, a chain smoker, had experienced ill-health for much of her 36 years behind bars, suffering from angina, suspected strokes and osteoporosis.

      Brady, now 64, is currently being held at the high security Ashworth Hospital on Merseyside, where he is on hunger strike and being fed through a plastic tube.

      He has failed in several legal attempts to be allowed to starve himself to death.

      Pauline Read was the first child to suffer at the hands of Brady and Hindley's. The 16-year-old vanished on July 12 1963 on her way to a disco near her home in Gorton, Manchester.

      John Kilbride vanished four months after Pauline - He was lured up on to the moor, sexually assaulted and murdered.

      The next victim, 12-year-old Keith Bennett, has never been discovered. He vanished after leaving his home in Chorlton-on-Medlock in Manchester on June 16 1964.

      Lesley Ann Downey was murdered on Boxing Day, 1964. The 10-year-old - was enticed from a fairground to the house Hindley shared with her grandmother in Hattersley.
      In Hindley's bedroom, she was stripped, sexually abused and tortured as they forced her to pose for pornographic photographs.
      The harrowing attack was recorded on audio tape by Hindley. The tape lasted 16 minutes 21 seconds.

      "used an image of Charlie Richardson as a backdrop on the Your Arsenal tour and also the tour merchandise"?
      Errr...Did you forget it was actually used in the Your Arsenal CD booklet/LP inner sleeve as well? Or did you just download the album off your mate? ;)

      Yeah, I noticed that too and commented somewhere back in 2009. I also noticed that Huggies may have used the idea as well. Have you seen the commerical where "Dads" play with their babies to test the durability of the diapers? (One "Dad" looks like he's even taking a sniff, ewwww!) Well, the print ad for that campaign was very reminiscent to the Years of Refusal cover.
