Most of us who tend to question the inquest, how Diana was treated by the Royal Family or her humanitian works are labelled "odd". That's ok... I tend to side with Diana's sons seeing also how their mother was an amazing woman.

If the IRA had come out with their normal diatribe at the time of Diana's death, they would have lost the support of many of their financial backers, in Ireland and allegedly the US. They were never going to chance that. They would also have lost the support of many of the ordinary people in NI. Basically the IRA were/are cowards and they would have been terrified of the consequences of celebrating.

I think there is a world of difference between talking to your plants, which many 1000's of people do, we even talk to our pets, and giving up your job, putting your families financial security on the line, having your face painted with Do di, to go and sit in a courtroom for the 'buzz'. That isn't eccentric, that is a mentally disturbed attention seeker, because if it was in 'dedication to Diana's memory', why behave like a clown. I don't believe he should be allowed into the court, he lowers the tone and solemnity of the occasion and shows nothing but disrespect to Diana's memory!

A former MI6 agent who told Mohamed Al Fayed of plans to kill Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic in a car crash admits he may have got his facts wrong.

Mohamed Al Fayed's former head of security has told the inquest into Princess Diana's death he lied about how much alcohol Henri Paul had drunk.

This inquiry has certainly taken an interesting turn. No doubt some will say that the shadowy figures of the Establishment "got to" all of the people who disagree with Fayed; however, I find it much harder to believe that the embalmer, the hospital staff, the ambulance staff, the French Police, MI6, Scotland Yard, Trevor Rees, etc. etc. were all in on a conspiracy. It really does beggar belief.

Ya exactly I just can't see how they could have gotten everyone in on this. My friend beleives the establishment paid everyone to keep their mouths shut but I really don't beleive her at this point of the inquest and from what we've learned. Surely they had to be fairly prepared in making sure everyone kept their mouths shut and really I know money is very convincing to some and will keep their mouths shut but alot of other people won't take the money and lie.It had to have been prepared months ahead in order for everything to work and add up correctly. I just find it intresting that everyone coming from Mr. Fayed's team is starting to admit that they lied and they are all former employees...intresting....secret service...nah more like Mr. Fayed being the creator of these conspiracy theories. Actually if he really is as he was portrayed in Diana: the last days of a princess then he was obsessed with the idea of Dodi and Diana being married with kids and getting revenge on Prince Phillip long before the crash happened.

I wonder why Fayed has such a fixation with Prince Philip? It's Her Majesty's Government who have denied him a passport, not Philip's.

I'm confused I'm reading the transcript from when Dodi's lawyer appeared and I'm lost did Dodi give Diana the ring or not cause apparently Mr. Cole said at the press confrence she had gotten it hours before her death but I swear I read that it was found at his apartment the next day. I'm also so confused as to what else Dodi might have meant by "we have some exciting news" or is they lawyer just spitting out complete crap.

Perhaps it is an 'alpha male' fixation.

Here's another report from the guardian.co.uk of the claims made by the former Harrods director of security being somewhat less than truthful:

Diana conspiracy theory unravels as Fayed's investigator tells of lies and lack of evidence | UK news | The Guardian

After 69 days of evidence into events surrounding the death of Princess Diana, Mohamed Al Fayed's allegations of high-level conspiracies and cover-ups began to crumble in an extraordinary hour of cross examination yesterday as his former director of security at Harrods admitted he could not substantiate any of them.

The devastating admissions came under cross-examination from Richard Horwell QC, representing the Metropolitan police, while Fayed, who will himself be called to give evidence to the inquest on Monday, sat watching grimly a few feet away.

.............
It sets up an 'interesting' appearance by Mohamed Al Fayed himself at the inquest on Monday. Will he take the offensive with more unsubstantiated and outrageous allegations?

Welcome back Warren, you have been missed. In answer to your question.... Probably!

Ooooh! So the old fella hisself is fronting Monday, eh!?! Now THAT will be interesting! I'll have to tear myself away from real life pressures (the accursed thing known as work!) that have kept me from reading the last few days' transcripts to read what Ol' Mo has to say.

I wonder if this trial will end up with charges of perjury against Fayed after Monday's testimony rather than charges of murder against Prince Philip. That might be an interesting development.

We might near some extraordinary things on Monday. I wonder if Fayed will be able to keep his cool? If not, he might come out with some quite bizarre things.

Do you think Prince Philip would sue Fayed?

Definitly Monday will be an intresting hearing..if he can't come up with an excuse I can see him making more bizzare claims that the secret service turned them against him or w/e he sounds alot like my friend. Seriously I doubt the secret service could pay everyone off, plus if they were that worried they should have thought of a better way to kill her.

I doubt it. However, and I hope one of the British residents in this conversation can confirm or correct this, I think that if Fayed's testimony is radically different from that of others and it's clear he's lying (assuming that's what happens), the coroner could recommed he stand trial for perjury.

Unfortunately, it wouldn't shut Mr. Mo up and he'd buy his way out of it!

If he's going to be able to buy his way out of the mess he's created, I'd like to see him buy his way out of a defamation action brought by Prince Philip by settling for a nice large chunk of money which HRH could then donate to charity.

Or how about if all the people Fayed's defamed launched a class action lawsuit together? THAT would be quite a payout!!
