Another formulaic rant ...
Parsons and his fellow pundits have embarked on one mission: to kick the Sussexes. This, in turn, shows that the Super Soaraway Currant Bun has never recovered from the time it was edited by the singularly unpleasant Tony Gallagher, who brought with him the culture of the Daily Mail, from whence he came. The culture of humourless spite.
So it was that Tone told his adoring readers (Kelvin and Rebekah Bonkers) “Prince Harry, you’ve broken the Queen’s heart - I hope you’re happy”. How has Hal done this? You’ll love this one: “Prince Harry can fill his boots with the bounty of corporate America … But - with spectacular selfishness and insensitivity - he has turned his back on his family and his country at the worst possible moment … There are 120,000 British dead”. HE DONE IT!
... won't stop his determination ...
Yes, Tony Parsons is yet more desperate than even his sternest critic imagined - so desperate that he’s blaming Harry for the Covid-19 pandemic. If only he had stayed in the UK, it would never have happened! This take is not merely novel. It is total horseshit.
This mound of evil-smelling by-product is enhanced in both size and pungency by Parsons dribbling “What a contrast between the runaway Prince Harry and his paternal grand- father Prince Philip. The Duke of Sussex is the royal woke bloke. And the Duke of Edinburgh is old school writ large”. Phil The Greek is indeed different to Hal. He got away with his various, shall we say, alleged extra-Royal excursions as the press kept quiet.
... to show that folks like her ...
But enough of Parsons and his ranting-to-order punditry: this is not about him. And it is not about The Greek either, at least, not specifically. It’s about two things, the first of which is that our free and fearless press cannot allow any member of the Royal Family to evade their grasp: they are public servants, therefore they are public property, and there for the press to do as they wish, including smearing, defaming and abuse of privacy.
And the second, which neither the Sun, nor any other title, has managed to tell its readers, is that the Sussexes are both involved in litigation against that title - and others. Worse, Hal has alleged that the period during which he was a target for phone hacking went back from 2011 all the way to 1994. So he’s saying they hacked Diana. Whoops!
... were involved in hacking HER
Those standing accused include the CEO of News UK - Rebekah Brooks - and her longstanding pal Piers Morgan, former Screws and Daily Mirror editor. That’s why Tony Parsons, along with Ms Moore, Ms Kelly, Ms Seward and Rod Liddle-by-Liddle, are piling in to Hal and Megs. The Sussexes want themselves, and not the press, to be in control of who gets told what about them. And will instruct lawyers to enforce their wishes.
Faced with that, and the prospect of being exposed for hacking Diana, the Murdoch mafiosi is responding the only way it knows how: a barrage of spiteful knocking copy from its unappealing bevy of useful idiots. Tony Parsons is the latest to be so instructed.
There is one small problem with this approach - it won’t work. But you knew that already.
