As I said before, there's no need to twist this into something sick like a morbid fascination with blood and death. That's just another tactic to bully someone into silence.
:::::::::::::::::::
The main point is "I". In this case you. Such evidence belongs in a court of law. Who are you, or I for that matter, to demand the "right" to decide what is and what is not true.

This is not some ghastly Hollywood reality show a-la Anna Nicole Smith. This is a legal inquest into the circumstances surrounding the death of Diana Princess of Wales. Unless we are required by law to present evidence (not speculation) or called to serve on the Jury we have no rights at all.

Just because Tony Blair coined the phrase "The People's Princess" does not make her our next of kin. She did not belong to us in life and she certainly does not belong to us in death.

As for "twisting it into something sick",the facts speak for themselves. Photos of a dead or dying princess were not even deemed suitable as fodder for the tabloids in Britain.

I doubt they were ridiculed, or even mocked. But, think about what the statement that Diana was seen walking around after the accident suggests. That the Princess, bleeding internally, somehow got out of the damaged car, walked around, then got back into the car, in the exact same position, jammed her foot back under the seat, and waited for the rescue teams to dismantle the car to get her out again. It's a completely implausible scenario that doesn't fit with the known circumstances and the other eyewitness accounts, and it is reasonable to suggest that the person was mistaken.

The first physician on the scene, obviously unscripted, thought Diana would be ok. What if she was ok after the ~ hour it took to get her out of the car, and she was walking around as reported by someone? Then she gets into the ambulance for the hour long "lost ride" to the hospital, and by the time she arrives, she has fatal injuries. There are jujitsu, judo, aikido moves that know very well how to rupture an aorta.

And what if the crash was caused by a stray UFO which shorted out the circuits in the tunnel causing the CCTV to go out and Henri-Paul was so startled he careened into a pillar?

Facts in evidence please!

Name of the "first physician", where he practices and exact quotes from his sworn deposition to support this "evidence"?

Evidence that she was murdered on the way to hospital?

Any facts at all?

From your quote we have it taking over an hour to get her out of the car, then time taken to have a wee walk around followed by a hour long "lost ride" to the hospital.

Sworn evidence please!

The first physician on the scene didn't know about her internal injuries.

Here's a transcript of a CNN interview with him, among others:

CNN.com - Transcripts

Doesn't sound as though he's saying she was doing fine.

So let's get this straight - someone (the British Establishment) wanted to kill her, so they arranged somehow for the car to crash into a pillar in a tunnel and then they had a backup plan involving a homicidal ambulance crew in case she survived the crash?

At what point does this scenario start to become more far-fetched than the scenario involving an inebriated driver crashing a car he wasn't licensed to drive because he's being pursued by paparazzi?

I specifically remember him saying he thought she had a chance of making it. I suppose the tone and flavor changed some in retrospect.

Good point. I always try to look for the simplest explanation. However, the probablility that Diana and Dodi and Trevor Rees-Jones each and all did not notice that Henri Paul was drunk is far-fetched. I mean, gee whiz, I always told my daughter not to get in a car with a drunk driver, and I assume there is some point to this warning in that she could tell the difference. Could you? I know I would know if I was about to drive with someone who was drunk.

Furthermore, if this was an assassination plot involving an auto accident, then the idea that the driver was drunk would be central to the plausibility of this being merely an accident. So at first, according to Steven's report, they mixed up Henri Paul's blood with that of a suicide victim that died that night from CO intoxication while drunk on ETOH. Then the mix-up was corrected and it was still concluded that Henri Paul was drunk and his CO levels were within normal range -- even though very high. Now that takes some real mental gymnastics to assimilate - accept.

Henri Paul did not have to be drunk to accidentally wreck a car with 4 passengers. The car was going very fast, it was bigger, heavier and harder to control that the types of cars he was used to and he wasn't used to carrying a client who was being chased by papparazzi on motorbikes.

People get into accidents without being drunk all the time. They get in accidents because they make errors of judgement - error such as thinking that they are a good enough driver that they can outrun the papparazzi on motorcycles even though their car is a lot bigger and harder to handle and the motocycles are much more manoeverable in city streets.

I don't think Henri Paul's alcohol levels or appearance were too significant. He was a heavy drinker and had developed a tolerance for alcohol. The same amount of alcohol that would make another person drunk would leave him looking completely sober. However, even if he were not drunk, alcohol would have an effect on his reflexes and make him more prone to accidents - especially at high speed.

Can you remember where you read it? There may still be a transcript online if you do some searching. Course, it's possible that he just meant he didn't think her injuries were life-threatening, which doesn't necessarily mean he thought she was capable of getting up and walking around.

It may not be, though. There are degrees of inebriation, and some of them, particularly in a person used to drinking, aren't that easy to detect. Had he been driving under normal conditions, everything might have been OK even if he was over the limit. However, given the special circumstances of driving late at night, being pursued by photographers with flash guns on powerful motor bikes, in an armoured car which he wasn't trained or licenced to drive (or so I read), under pressure from Dodi to go faster, it's not surprising that something happened. Heck, even without the alcohol, that was a nasty set of conditions, and I gather that tunnel is something of an accident blackspot. Why they had those square pillars without any crash barriers in front of them (at least, that's how it looked) is mystifying.

Where in the Stevens report did they say they switched his blood with someone else's? Would this be one of the quotes from one of Fayed's people? All I can see in the Stevens report is a discussion of sloppy labelling of blood from the chest cavity (which apparently isn't a good sample for carboxyhaemoglobin testing) as being from the heart (which is), and that they accept that the actual level was nearer 12%, which was the level recorded on another sample. In this day and age of DNA testing, and with both Henri Paul's parents alive to get samples from for comparison, it shouldn't be impossible to verify the source of the samples in question.

As I recall, Dr. Mailliez did say, based on his external examination, that he thought 'she would be okay' once she had been extricated from the wreckage and received treatment. BUT, he also said, very clearly, that he did not have the means to take her blood pressure, so he could not have realized that she was bleeding internally-and if he had realized the extent of her internal injuries, he would have rated her chances much lower. At no time did he imply that he thought she was capable of getting up and walking around, considering that he said she was 'unconscious and groaning'. As it was, his examination was quite brief, since the rescue teams arrived and he stepped back to let them do their work.

Her aorta wasn't ruptured. She suffered a tear to the left pulmonary vein.

Well, okay. But, let's assume, hypothetically, that Henri Paul was French and he had been drinking alcohol since his teens. And, let's assume, hypothetically, that Henri Paul was a functioning alcoholic undergoing treatment for that disease. It follows that he had a high tolerance for alcohol, so the effects of his alcohol consumption that night were not as obvious as they might have been in someone with a lower tolerance.

So, he goes to the Ritz, and his mood is highly elevated as a result of his drinking, but he was also making an attempt to act courteous and professional in the presence of his boss's son and the Princess. Let's say, hypothetically, that there is some videotape which shows Paul talking to the couple that supports the theory of his relatively calm demeanor. On what basis of comparison were Diana, Dodi, and Trevor Rees supposed to assess his personality? They didn't know that man. Diana and Trevor Rees had only just met him the day before-Dodi only a few times before that. They didn't know what he was like when he was happy, sad, angry, agitated. And let's hypothetically include that it was late at night and everyone was tired, so their perceptions may have been dulled.

In any case, as someone posted earlier, you don't have to be drunk to crash a car.

Talking

Phoney Pharaoh of Harrods

Like Madame Tussauds, Harrods of Knightsbridge used to be one of the tourist stopovers of London. The late 19th century made retail in the capitals of the world one of its wonders. People who would previously queue to see museums and fine pieces of architecture were now invited to marvel at the Macy’s in New York, at the Bon Marché in Paris and at Harrods in London

That article has stated nothing new. I sometimes feel sorry for Al Fayed. He's dealing with his grief by calling his son's and diana's death a murder and accusing Prince Phillip of being the master mind of the crash.

The article shows what some others think of Fayed, he is a laughing stock!

Well I have to admit that he is somewhat of a laughing stock. At least Harrods is still doing well I think.

What's crafty about it, every civil servant and army officer, has to sign the official secrets act! Butler Sloss clearly felt he had nothing to offer in the way of relevant evidence, if he had, don't we all know Fayed would have seized on it!

That will be water on the al-Fayed-mill, as the anti-terror minister surely works together closely with the Secret Services....
