Twenty-nine-year old Sarah Bartholomew changed her name into Sarah Walliams, according to Little Britain’s David Walliams.
Sarah “Walliams” stalked David for over four years; she was, and unfortunately for David still is, obsessed by him. This ex-veterinary nurse has changed her name and she really believes she is married to David. Under permission of the hospital Sarah filled out the deed poll papers. The staff of this hospital even helped her with the form and visited her ‘reception’.
Although Sarah stalked David badly, the hospital gave their approval to this imaginary marriage. Before she was sent into Kneesworth House Hospital, she stalked David by sending hem sexually-charged letters and gifts. She has been told to stop stalking David, but up to this point she has not done so. Instead, she has written him a letter in which she tells him she would do anything to let him stop seeing other people. She would even kill him, if necessary.
I think it is madness to let someone believe that they are married to someone they are not married to. Even if this person is in medical care, it is not right to let him/her use someone else's name.
What is the use of an imaginary marriage in this case? This case shows us that it is obvious that the lunatics are running the asylum. She is probably so obsessed she uses his name to give her a sense of being satisfied. That is crazy but possible, but I do not think it is suitable to give permission to do something like this.
Imagine having a stalker who wants to use someone's name, because they are so obsessed by them. I shadder to think of something like this. Would they give their name to a lunatic who stalks them?
