McCartney sisters confronted by abusive mob

The McCartney sisters have been fairly absent from the new pages of late. Apart from the fact that the Socialist group of MEPs in Europe had voted give financial help to their campaign for justice for their brother. But a small group who confronted the women as they handed out leaflets for a vigil outside the pub, where he was killed, ensured that they are back in the limelight again.
