    Re; Diana inquest and cameras, I lived in Paris for 25 years till recently. I believe that the Pont dAlma is the only road bridge in Paris with NO camera. Odd, no?

    PM seems quite incorrectly to have broadcast the news today that the judge said there could not be any evidence that Diana was pregnant. You had previously said the court was collecting evidence on this! I think what the judge said it could not be proved scientifically. Surely the BBC can tell the difference between submit evidence and proove!

    Gossipmistress, you are The One. See you on the nonexistant Beach, and I'll get you a drink.

    Pssst! Mr Fish! I've got some bubbly under my jacket. Can't get down to the beach it seems to be closed - fancy a glass here? Watch out for Sergeant Blog and the Frog Mod police! Sante!!

    I hearby boycott this thread, on account of the reference to what can hardly be termed news; to whit the death of three people in a car crash ten years ago caused by a drunk driver.

    I agree that this isn't of interest anymore. Yes its always sad when we lose loved ones but having an inquest 10 yrs after the event, OMG!

    Gossipmistress, Electric Dragon & FFred - couldn't agree with you all more.

    Wearing a seatbelt would probably have saved her life, the car she was in was going too fast and was driven by a man with several times the legal limit of alcohol in his bloodstream. Bottom line is that she's still dead. End of.

    Can we move on now please?

    I'd like to know why this inquest is likely to last 6 months and cost 10 million quid. If I died in a car crash - drunk driver, seatbelt, conspiracy theory or not - I expect it would all be over in a morning. There is nothing new that can be said about this case and I really hope PM gives it a wide berth.

    And Mac, I hope GM complains about your comment which I believe breaks BBC house rules for contributing comments to message boards and blogs on the grounds that it is personal abuse.

    Rachel - thank you for your comment - I presume the offending comment has been removed as I can't, and didn't, see it. But I have complained about one of 'Mac's' comments previously about someone else which was also consequently removed.

    La la la, la la la, with fingers in ears.

    Such a good position to make a comment from.

    Sounds to me like someone who thinks it more important to comment than to listen.

    Its the sort of position peopel adopt when first told the truth about themselves that they don't like.

    yours 'till ferrets Racheal and Gossip explain what's abusive about that.

    PS Its what I said last time.

    I feel for her sons, having all these personal details of their Mother's life aired in public. The inquest should have been held in private. All the public needs to know is the verdict.

    Mac is a necessary weevil: every blog should have one. Nobody has to reply, everyone can make that "oh, *mac*" comment with varying degrees of pity or exasperation, and sometimes we may even agree by accident...

    It's a bit like the uncle at the family Christmas who gets blotto and calls Auntie something the children don't understand and which makes three or four people draw in their breath sharply and mutter to each other about how he's getting worse each year.

    Oh, and I do *hope* she's still dead: think how awful if she started wandering around and voicing her paranoid opinions again!

    Gossipmistress @7, since the Beach now causes the computer to crash if I try to go there, a glass or two of bubbly over in this thread seems like a very good idea.

    Cheers!

    ps Not being able entirely to ignore this lot, I love the conspiracy theory that says the driver was part of the conspiracy to kill DiPoW. If he had been, might he not have worn his seat-belt, and tried to survive? otherwise he might as well have set off a Mills bomb in the car and made sure of things. I find myself uttering words to the effect "gaaaah! Why are we encouraging this nutter by pretending to take him seriously?" I leave it to readers to work out which nutter I mean.

    Mr Fish - cheers! Weirdly & spookily, I was just having that very conversation before looking at the blog. If they really wanted to kill Diana & Dodi, why do it in a car crash & not with eg a bomb? What if she had put her safety belt on - she might well have survived! And if whoever the *powers that be* are had wanted to cover anything up then it won't come to light in this or any other inquest.

    If it was a mere mortal would they be suggesting the body was exumed to see if she was indeed pregnant? It's just an especially bad episode of Witless Silence without the good-looking pathologists!

    The photo splashed across many newspapers on Wednesday was revealing - taken by a photographer, using flash, from in front of the car, and apparently showing Di looking out of the rear windscreen.

    I also read somewhere that Henri Paul was called upon to do the chauffeuring about 3hrs after going off-duty. Which makes a nice convenient explanation for his supposed drunkenness - if he thought he'd finished for the night, it's quite possible he visited the bar before his final journey.

    So here's my speculation:
    Immediate cause: car going well over the speed limit fails to negotiate a bend in a tunnel.

    Contributing factors: route chosen, speed, camera flashes, Henri Paul's sobriety (or lack of).

    One other thing I just thought of: lack of sufficiently tinted glass in the windows...

    -oOo-

    And here's food for more speculative thought:
    Imagine if the crash hadn't happened...
    Would Charles have rekindled his love for Camilla?
    Would Di have married Dodi? After all, since she was divorced from Charles and officially estranged from the Windsors, "The establishment" wouldn't be able to prevent it...
    And of course, would Dodi's dad be in possession of a UK passport by now? :)
    Not to mention, what would a certain paper fill its front page with? :)

    In view of (1), (3) (16) and (21) here and (12) and (20) at the very next site (on Chipperfield's building) can I ask that Gossip's opinion that my post (previously (13) at No plans for Saturday night?) be removed be itself discounted and my post restored?

    I confess I am one of those who only now is taking any serious notice of the debates surrounding Di's death. (My interest ended at her brother's fine speech of usurption and Reg Dwight's singing at the funeral)

    One point that intrigues me. It is clearly not a disproof of Dhodi's father's claim that Prince Philip was organising their assassination that their death was a complete accident. The English courts seem to have found a way of investigating that claim. In the case where their death was indeed an accident one hopes that notwithstanding the full truth will emerge.

    AFter this much time how can anyone prove beyond a doubt that any tissue samples are actually hers.... how can anyone prove any evidence anymore. come on were not turnips! we have common sense and can figure out that the driver tipped off the photogs, they chased them....he performed obviously for them in a get away situation and his carelessness caused the death of not only himself but dodi and diana. any conspiracy proof was disposed of yrs ago. if there were any at all. to say the least... i thought diana was a beautiful person, but she obviously had a bad marriage, and trust issues. dont get me wrong, i think the world of her, but you have to set things aside and face that there was something more goingon with her. might have been battle fatigue from going thru a bad marriage and divorce, or maybe she craved attentions she never received from charles. still its sad when anyone passes. but lets all remeber that the two boys, shouldnt be made to suffer the same fate as she did. the papparazzi need to back off all these celebs....give them space and dignity.
