This week’s most important #FakeNews is about a wedding.
The truth is that Meghan Markle’s wedding dress didn’t cost 300 grand, it was a third of that and apparently she’s paying for it “herself”, anyway.
The disingenuous reference to the Grenfell tragedy in the fake news stories is scurrilous. Fact was the people who built that tower didn’t spend the requisite amount of money to use fire-retardant cladding!
It’s also worth pointing out that Princess Diana’s dress cost more nominally, but that was almost 40 years ago, inflation since then means that Ms Merkle’s dress should have cost 350 grand, if she’d wanted the equivalent of Harry’s mother.
To be frank, I’m not interested in royal weddings, but fake news and shameful “journalism” of this kind persists and is exactly the sort of lie that piles up and persuades people to vote for the likes of Trunt and Brexit…
