Gordon in the morning: Once again, One Direction fans prove themselves sweet and restrained

How delightful One Direction fans are, warmly welcoming the news that Harry Hairsytyle is dating Taylor Swift by sharing their good wishes:

One tweeted: “I’ll murder Taylor Swift. She will not date my Harry.” Another posted: “If u dating my harry, I kill u.”
And Lord McAlpine thought Twitter was hostile towards him.

The fans - known amongst themselves as Directioners and amongst law enforcement officials as Borderline Psycopaths - cover themselves in glory once again.

The one soothing consolation for Taylor Swift is that the 'fans' have about as much chance of getting near enough to act out their threats as they do of getting close enough to Harry to act out their fantasies.
