Jonathan King's Serial Killer Song

Shamed music mogul JONATHAN KING has written a song claiming convicted serial killer HAROLD SHIPMAN was innocent of murder. Shipman, a British doctor, was handed a life sentence in 2000 after being found guilty of killing 15 patients with lethal injections. A later report concluded he had killed more than 200 other patients across a 23 year period. He committed suicide in prison in 2004. Former Genesis producer King - who was jailed for four years in 2001 for indecent assault on a number of teenage boys - believes Shipman had the consent of patients he killed. And he has written The True Story Of Harold Shipman, which will feature on his new album. In the song, King sings, ""Police will inflate and the law says it's fine to accommodate tabloids with a solid headline/But a real psycho monster who's killing for fame would leave notes for acclaim to establish his name. "Some people will sigh when they're waiting to die/Won't you please speed it up as I'm starting to cry/There's one thing he ain't and that's saviour or saint/But a pleading complaint didn't pass him by." The move has been attacked by relatives of Shipman's victims, including Barry Swann, whose mother was killed by the doctor. He says, "We're talking about a convicted paedophile here. Who would want to buy this rubbish? I just can't comprehend his point of view. It's sensationalist rubbish and he's put this out because it's easy for him to do so in his position. He obviously feels he was unfairly dealt with but to compare himself with a mass murderer is ridiculous. He's just a plonker."
