The Fail on Sunday

 You couldn't make it up 

Here's the press release - check out the monogram - tiara with floating M ribbons - no, could it be the tiara? The subject of  the wedding tiara tantrum? In which the QEII snappily refused Harry's request for the tiara Meghan wanted, saying, allegedly, "She gets what tiara she's given by Me."

The statement reads: "This is a victory not just for me, but for anyone who has ever felt scared to stand up for what’s right.
"While this win is precedent setting, what matters most is that we are now collectively brave enough to reshape a tabloid industry that conditions people to be cruel, and profits from the lies and pain that they create.
"From day one, I have treated this lawsuit as an important measure of right versus wrong.
"The defendant has treated it as a game with no rules.
"The longer they dragged it out, the more they could twist facts and manipulate the public (even during the appeal itself), making a straightforward case extraordinarily convoluted in order to generate more headlines and sell more newspapers—a model that rewards chaos above truth.
"In the nearly three years since this began, I have been patient in the face of deception, intimidation, and calculated attacks.
"Today, the courts ruled in my favor - again - cementing that The Mail on Sunday, owned by Lord Jonathan Rothermere, has broken the law.
"The courts have held the defendant to account, and my hope is that we all begin to do the same.
"Because as far removed as it may seem from your personal life, it’s not.
"Tomorrow it could be you.
"These harmful practices don’t happen once in a blue moon - they are a Daily Fail that divide us, and we all deserve better."

Poor old 'arry. Of all the English Roses he had at his disposal, some probably even nice girls, he picked an American. Now with kids and all the bollocks he has espoused (I'm sure he only reads a script) there is no way back for him. Condemned to live in America with an ageing harpy and no mates. And fallen from a position of general, if lukewarm, affection, to outright hatred amongst his fellow Englishmen. If he's not careful, drink and drugs will overtake him.

Just like his great great uncle, I guess, mr mike - a life of dissolute regret.

That's right, mr shoulders, she perjured herself - sorry, forgot a few minor details in evidence - so that you don't have to. I trust you're suitably grateful.

Old cliche from Carl Marx, Mrs I: "history repeats itself, first as tragedy then as farce".
