Abstract

Thanks to the Internet’s back-alleys we can trace the history of the Harry story even though some of the webpages have been taken down. Thanks to Leftluggage.blogpot.com for pointing the way to the Google cache of the original story in a crappy Australian tabloid website on January 7th. This was even picked up by Bild magazine in Germany but no-one here noticed before Matt Drudge ran it last week. Bizarrely the British media turned upon Drudge for reporting it, while accepting themselves that their cozy pact with the MoD was now redundant and that the UK public finally deserved to hear from its own media about what the young Royal was up to. Then followed some fantastic PR coverage of our brave boy fighting the evil Taleban.
