For those who don't know about Kirsty MacColl, she was an English singer-songwriter who had made quite a few albums and had collaborated with many other musicians in her career. Kirsty is the female voice dueting with Shane Magowan on the Pogues' song, "Fairy Tale of New York".
Kirsty was on holiday in Mexico and enjoying a scuba dive with her children when she was run down by a careless powerboat driver and killed. The powerboat belonged to some rich guy who just paid off the local authorities and literally got away with murder. Her mother started up a website called: Justice for Kirsty. She campaigned for years, but gave up recently, exhausted.
RIP Kirsty, you have given me many happy hours of listening pleasure and you didn't deserve to go this way. Below is an excerpted piece from the website.
