“The notion that those who don’t agree with her and Harry for the reasons outlined in the OP, however, are baseless.”
This sentence makes no sense. The next two are better, but wrong.
“What’s more, the idea that other royals haven’t attracted the same amount of bitchy bullying and public displays of nastiness as MM does is totally and utterly false. Just check back on comments about Kate and her ‘common’ background or Fergie, her behaviour and her dad.”
It’s wrong because the papers quickly shut up about Kate’s background when they saw William was serious about her. Most press were intrigued by the idea of a commoner.
But, it was very different with Ferguson and her dad. She’d been having an affair. He’d had been with prostitutes. So it’s no surprise they got a broadside. Yet, just look at the gushing treatment the Mail affords him now!
It’s the usual double standards. The media certainly like to bully the women. MM is guilty of nothing except being herself, yet receives worse than any of the above!
And BI simply comments “The simple truth is that the Royal Family attracts more media coverage and interest than any other family on the planet and the idea that this is all going to be supportive — about any of them — is fanciful and naive.”
Read the coverage given to both in the links above. See the difference in treatment from the same papers. Ask yourself why it exists.
Strangely, and despite some pretty appalling behaviour over the years by the monarchy, there have been hardly any calls for either its reform or abolition from the low-born, grovelling columnists, like Gove’s wife in the Mail, or from lickspittle members of the public, like Bucksiron on here. That suggests they’re happy with how it currently is – old fashioned, dysfunctional and perpetuating a ludicrous class system in which it’s ‘open season’ on those whose faces do not fit.
Oh, and Bucksiron, you ask about Labour and anti-Semitism. I have no idea if they have dealt with it adequately or not. I hope so, but you should make up your own mind. Or, ask someone with party connections and report what they said.
You could always vote for the Greens if you’re not happy with Labour. Or try Lib-Dem. But luckily we aren’t stuck with political parties like we are with the royals.
