Diana/Dodi inquest - what is the point?

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Herrumph, Jan 23, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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?
     
  2. Diana = Died in a nasty accident. Let sleeping dogs lay – end of!
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. 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...
     
  5. Yeh, but who'se version of the truth? Paul the Butler, Dodi's Dad? Pluke of Edinburgh, Diane brothet? the papparazzi? The list is endless
     

  6. The one starting with a Capital Letter, obviously.
     
  7. 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.

    A good take on the whole circus by Max Hastings in th Guardian:
    Inquest circus
     
  9. In short; the more they stir this up the more they can rehash old news and sell more papers.....
     
  10. Oh! There's meant to be a point is there? :twisted:

    To make sure she's actually dead of course - doh!
     
  12. 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 . . .
     
  13. 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.

  14. 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?.
     
  15. 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!
