RIP Poly Styrene

There's been no official confirmation - so there's still hope it might just be an internet rumour - but it sounds like Poly Styrene has lost her fight against cancer.

I was sure it was you who tweeted the other day about the phrase "lost their fight against cancer". I might be wrong. Probably am.

But anyway it holds true - nobody ever died from cancer because they didn't fight hard enough

You're right, it's a bit of a lazy cliche (although the concept of a body fighting an illness isn't restricted to cancer).
