George Monbiot rather fell for one. The original:
The most expensive yacht in the world, costing £3bn, is a preposterous slab of floating bling called History Supreme. It carries 100 tonnes of gold and platinum wrapped around almost every surface, even the anchor.
Perhaps to visit one of their superhomes, constructed and run at vast environmental cost, or to take a trip on their superyacht, which might burn 500 litres of diesel an hour just ticking over, and which is built and furnished with rare materials extracted at the expense of beautiful places.
With the footnote:
This article was amended on September 19 to remove an inaccurate reference to the world’s most expensive superyacht.
George can get taken in by odd claims…..
