BINGO!, Warren. A beautiful princess isn't allowed to die accidentally. It's "unfair."

Tragic and needless death at the hands of a speeding drunk driver......and because she wasn't wearing a seat belt.

As someone who was a personal injury lawyer for many years, and who is very well aware of how often these circumstances combine to cause life-shattering trauma and pain and disability and/or death, and what happens to fragile, unrestrained human bodies in the circumstances in which Diana died, I am angry that the lessons that could be drawn from Diana's needless death to help teach the motoring public and hopefully prevent at least some similar occurrences, have been overlooked, or ignored, yet these ridiculous conspiracy theories prosper and are given publicity.

What difference does the inquest make? Diana is gone and nothing will bring her back.

Inquests are always held when a British national dies in a foreign country.

The inquest is not trying to bring her back, it's trying to find the truth as to why she died.
An inquest makes a lot of difference, to the people who want answers.

IMO this lawyer is a minion of Mr. Al Fayed. A well-educated minion, but a minion none the less. This is the third newspaper article to appear recently, and perhaps it's not coincidence that he has a book to sell.

Mermaid, I think it is to sell more books, because anything with Diana, Princess of Wales' name sells. Another thing, I don't remember this lawyer of Mr Al Fayed the anything to the press to contradict the inquest verdict. I know Mr. Al Fayed voiced his opinion about the inquest's verdict being wrong.

The inquest basically said that Diana's car crash was an accident. It ruled out conspiracy, which is what Mr. Mansfield is suggesting was actually behind the crash. He doesn't come right out and say that Diana was murdered, but he uses terms like "the hidden hand."

Not only does Mr Mansfield suggest that there was a conspiracy he even says, according to this article, that that was what the inquest determined. However that isn't the way I remember the inquest's verdict - which was accidental death resulting from being chased by the paparazzi.

Did you read his book or just got the conspiracy theory from the article? I was wondering if I should buy his book. I remember the inquest ruled that it was an accident brought on by a drunk driver. I don't think they said too much about the press as a cause.

The Inquest said she was unlawfully killed by the 'gross negligence' of driver Henri Paul and the paparazzi.

I think that it's possible that Mr. Mansfield is acting as Dodi's father's mouthpiece. Mr. al Fayed has said that he, himself would no longer be speaking out about his ideas, but that doesn't mean that he can't speak through someone else.

The thing is, that night in Paris was absolutely chaotic; and that's why I think that there wasn't a conspiracy possible. No one knew what was going to happen at any particular time. A conspiracy means that things have to be under control. Conspirators have to be able to predict where people will be at a particular time in order to take action.

So no, I haven't read Mr. Mansfield's book, and I don't intend to. The Express was the paper of Mr. al Fayed's choice. They ran his point of view constantly up til the time that the inquest came up with its verdict.

Exactly if an assasination is going to be carried out it has to be controlled not chaotic.

What I find sad is that these stories of conspiracy keep surfacing from time to time along with stories on Dodi and Diana's romance.

I never for once believed that there was or would be anything serious between Diana and Dodi no matter how much Mr. Fayed wished it to be. Diana I think was used as a pawn in this instance to furthur Mr. Fayed's dream of really fitting into British aristocratic society where doors kept slamming in his face.

The inquest determined its decision and things should just be left to rest.

I accept that the car crash was an accident. But a few things still bother me. First, the press was not held responsible for one of the factors of the crash in the verdict. Secondly, knowing that Henri Paul was an informant and he could give information to someone right before the group left the hotel. I always had this question in the back of my mind, because the inquest and the Pageit report did not answer it satisfactory to my liking. Does anyone else feel the same way? Or is there some information that I overlooked?

Honestly I think that some of the questions people have about the crash might never be answered.

The Inquest does put some of the blame on the paparazzi so the press does get some blame officially there.


I really have no questions about that night - Diana got in a car with a drunk driver, stupidly didn't put on her seatbelt even when the car was going at excessive speed being chased by the paparazzi and so died as a result of her own stupidity.

Well atleast the ruling was conclusive that she was unlawfully killed as a result of a drunken driver.
