Wally of the Week – Joe Corré

Vivienne Westwood’s son pathetically burns £5 million of memorabilia as a protest; he should have given it to charity

 

Fans rightly reacted angrily when Dame Vivienne Westwood’s publicity loving son Joe Corré set fire to £5 million worth of memorabilia given to him by his mother and late father Malcolm McLaren on the River Thames at Albert Bridge in Chelsea on Saturday.

 

Before setting light to the items, Corré, who founded the lingerie company Agent Provocateur, remarked: “Punk was never, never meant to be nostalgic – and you can’t learn how to be one at a Museum of London workshop”.

 

“Punk has become another marketing tool to sell you something you don’t need. The illusion of an alternative choice. Conformity in another uniform”.

 

Dame Vivienne, bizarrely positioned in a green double decker bus on the river bank, then added:

 

“This is the first step towards a free world. It’s the most important thing you could ever do in your life”.

 

“I never knew what to say before … ever since punk … we never had a strategy then, that’s why we never got anywhere. This is so ridiculously easy. Let’s all have a laugh and stay alive”.

 

Effigies of Boris Johnson, David Cameron, Theresa May and George Osborne were also burnt as part of the protest but what is telling is that the real idiot is Corré for orchestrating this pointless exercise. Shame on him.

  1. Joe Corre is indeed a complete twonk to do this. By setting fire to 70TS punk memorabilia he is stopping anyone else getting their mitts on it. How I see IMHO he is burning these much sought after punk mementos as it stops other people buying it or displaying same in a museum and trying to recreate it over and again. By burning it, it stops the recreation of that particular era. Kills it. Fans not happy though.
