Irene Armstrong, the celebrant at last week’s wedding where fire destroyed three cars and damaged two others, is outraged at being accused of being responsible for the blaze. Irene’s brand new car was one of the three destroyed in the fire but it was not the car that started the blaze as stated in this week’s Gulf News.
As if it wasn’t bad enough to suffer the trauma of seeing your new car go up in flames, to then be falsely accused of your vehicle being the one to start the fire adds insult to injury. I hope the journalist who failed to check the facts is fired, and there’s a front page apology to Irene in next week’s issue of Gulf News.
Ever been annoyed at having your name spelt wrongly in the papers? It’s no wonder it happens when the writer at the Waiheke Marketplace, Diana Worthy, can’t even spell her editor’s name correctly on the front page of the paper this week. It's 'Gardner' not "Gardener', you muppet.
