So THAT’S why the Dursleys were so horrible to Harry Potter – a fan has the answer

Dursleys 2 The dastardly Dursleys (Picture: Warner Bros)

When Harry Potter was orphaned he was taken in by his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon Dursley to live in their little house on Privet Drive and his life, briefly, took an even further downward spiral.

And it was all because of the dastardly Dursleys.

The Dursleys were the reason he had to live in a cupboard.

They were also the reason he never celebrated a birthday, why he had to pretend he didn’t exist, and why he nearly, very nearly, didn’t go to Hogwarts at all.

We’ve been brought up to have a serious dislike for the Dursley family because of their meanness to our boy Harry. But what if their cruelty wasn’t their fault?

Not excusing their terrible behaviour of course (they fed him through a cat flap?!) but a fan has come up with a theory that they might explain things.
