Diana/Dodi inquest - what is the point?

#1
Can anyone see the point of this whole fiasco? Another day, another load of old tripe trotted out. Endless lists of people giving information that has no relevance to the accident and can't be backed up with evidence (witness Paul "My rock" Burrell - no proof at all). So far nothing of any value has been raised apart from some of Diana's relatives may, or may not, have said some hurtful things to her in private.

Isn't it time the Coroner stepped in and told Counsel from all sides to get to the issue and stop throwing un-subtantiated muck about?

Should we be bovvered?! Yes because it is costing the taxpayer a fortune and proving nothing. Can the expensive representatives of of Mr Fayed be billed for wasting the court's time?

I could not agree more. At the end of the day is it going to bring her back? No...so whats the point. Fuel for the conspiracy theorists...data for another book? She is dead, thats it, dont matter a pile of pigs pooh what anyone says, nothing is going to change so why go on and on.

Im with you, cut the carp and the expense and lets get on with life.

How can you say that? We MUST be told the Truth!

She was the queen of all our hearts, truly living her life like a candle in the wind.

RIP. Rest easy, randy sloane...

The one starting with a Capital Letter, obviously.

Hopefully it'll shut the Di-ly Express up and prove to the massed ranks of the general public who consider her to be a latter day saint that she was as flawed as the rest of us.

Ironically it is those that idolise her who have caused her reputation most harm by lobbying for this inquest.

Have you never heard that no publicity is bad publicity?

Al Fayad is getting huge advertisements from this, and the Di fund and the zillions of authors claiming to have known her secrets will no doubt make several million more for a few years more, not to mention the newspapers being sold from it - all at our expense.

Thats the point . . .

As far as the shop keeper is concerned, only one verdict from her majesty's coroner will suffice, so best he get ready for a shock when "accidental" or "misadventure" is stated by the man sitting upon high above them all.

You can't seriously be suggesting we deny a means for all those hard working lawyers to make a killing at the expense of the taxpayer?...and the phoney phorah to roll out his spiel about the establishment out to kill Diana off.

If the latter were true,then why haven't the spooks cut the brake cables on Fayed's car as well?.

Can't they just dig her up and empty a mag into her instead? Quicker, simpler, much more certain and a hell of a lot less annoying!

Dodis dad can't bear to take any responsibility with his bolloxed up security arrangements and will not rest until somebody else has assumed full culpability.

His security guards were constantly over-ruled in an "I'm your boss, you will do as I say" kind of way. So security was never able to do the job they were paid to do because their employers would not listen to them.

Like the time (or so I've read) that they said that Henri Paul should not drive them anywhere because he was not expecting to be driving anywhere and was tanked up. Over-ruled.

The plan (so I've read) was that they were'nt going to leave the hotel but decided at the last minute to change the plan and not give the security staff enough time to plan it properly.

Mr al Fayed and his family are as 'guilty' as anybody but he can't see it. It wasn't planned, it was an accident and I don't know if its grief or guilt that drives him but thats how I see it.

Indeed one might say cathartic!

Sadly, Mr Shopkeeper will never rest until someone proves the tyres were shot out by Prince Philip using a Barrett .50 from a grassy knoll .... oops, here we go again. :roll:

An utter waste of time and money ... I just hope someone has the balls to sent Al Harrod the bill when it's all over.

Let's hope it's not an open verdict otherwise we'll have to go through all this shiite again.

They're cross examining the bodyguard, Trevor Rees now, even though he can't remember anything prior to finding his head crammed in the glovebox next to the Haines manual.
