Moyra Melons' Earrings Battle Economic Truths of News Media.

"What do you think of these?" demanded Moyra Melons - searching for an opinion from her husband, concerning her latest earrings.

"Erm - very nice dear," he tutted.

They are exquisite and subtle aren't they?" She enquired.

"Subtle?" He exclaimed, raising an eyebrow.

Moyra turned to him and replied. "Yes - subtle is what I want this pair to be. Don't you agree with me?" 

Her husband came over in a hot flush and began to stutter. "I can hardly say subtle, though they are exquisite."

Moyra pulled a mock sad face. "I want subtle and exquisite - just exquisite is not good enough."

"Well my dear," began her husband who was finding it difficult to contain himself. "Allow me to explain." 

The door closed and after a time - a rather long time, Moyra Melons emerged with a windswept and rather gratified look. Also, she had decided to settle for just exquisite without subtle playing any part in her new earrings look. No amount of retro British understatement could mask the real news of Moyra's exquisite earrings.

Moyra Melons hopes such fine earrings will take one's mind off of the way our TV news and newspapers present fake news concerning our nation. If we can peddle economic truths and pussyfoot around real issues, omit obvious facts by owning the debate and choosing which things to focus on, we can sleepwalk people into all sorts of controlled beliefs. 

Don't Be Blinded by Economic Truth.
