The fact that he was able to do that annoyed me at the time, and still rankles. Tax payers' money was spent on the admin for that name change, to what end? Anything that benefits Sutcliffe can hardly be said to be in the public interest. And yes, he only deserves to be known by his original name - even the title "Yorkshire Ripper" risks glamorising him, and I certainly don't want to recognise a new name that he's chosen for himself.Sutcliffe apparently changed his surname in prison but I don't care enough to look it up.
