Mrs Blunt goes down the school to stick up for her son

Today have done a piece on the 'pop's gone posh' story this morning.

In return, they got a moaning email from James Blunt's mum, complaining that "most critics" take a harsh line on her little James "because of his background".

Up to a point, Mrs. B - given that James probably wouldn't have got past a record company door without the benefits of his privileged start in life, he wouldn't have been in the line of criticism without his poshness.

But the criticism itself is down to his droning, dull music. I don't know whether we'll ever find out if insipid balladry is down to nature or nurture, but be assured that he is being judged on his record. Literally.

I remember hearing whispers about how Blunt got his 'in' at record companies, and they alleged that it was more to do with the recreational products that he was providing for A&R men. Again, allegedly. Fine, upstanding men like Blunt couldn't possibly have any kind of shady dealings like that in their pasts, I feel sure.
