The great William Connor, who wrote a column for the Daily Mirror under the name of 'Cassandra' once referred to an issue that led him to yearn for "A handkerchief, an aspidistra, and the old heave-ho".

That's pretty much how I felt when I looked at The Sun's piece about Prince Harry today.

The paper hounded the Princes' mother, and continues to hound them. The other day a picture appeared showing Prince Harry - shock horror - with his hand cupping the breast of a nubile young woman. It turned out that the photo was three years old, which blew holes in the paper's sniggering about the reaction of Harry's current girlfriend.

If you have time, and if you have a bucket handy, read the Sun's piece, combining grovelling yet prurient speculation with an apology that was written for, and probably by, lawyers.
