    Speculations that Princess Diana's death may be more than an accident have gained further momentum, after recent discoveries revealed that her chauffeur reportedly received mystery payments amounting to 142,000 dollars, just weeks before she died in the car he was driving. Chauffeur Henri Paul died along with Diana and her lover Dodi Al Fayed when the Mercedes he was driving crashed in an underpass in Paris, France in August 1997. British detectives investigating the tragedy have fuelled speculation that Paul was being paid by British secret service agents, by revealing the staggering sums he received from British banks just before...

    London’s Mayor Ken Livingstone today blamed the press for the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dr David Kelly, the Government scientist at the centre of the row over the Iraq war dossiers. Mr Livingstone, speaking during a phone-in on the LBC 97.3 FM Nick Ferrari programme, said: “The best of reporters are great and courageous people, many of them give their lives to bring us the truth. “There’s a downside: the real underbelly of British reporting are the scum of the earth and they destroy lives. “I think if we had better reporting standards in this country David...

    Every time Diana, Princess of Wales's ghost returns for another haunting, as it did last week on American television and thence into the British media, our perceptions of her the only thing that stays the same is the revolving cast of clapped-out courtiers, posh lowlifes and fleabag turncoats who continue to cash in on her memory. -snip- What's fascinating about the Settelen seance is the new insight it gives us into the Diana myth. We suddenly glimpse why the Royal Family was so afraid of her witchy power. Coquetting with the camera, she comes off as a performing charmer, a...
  • Could A John Kerry Loss Be Signaled By John Howard’s Win?

    First, I’d like to congratulate Australia’s Prime Minister John Howard for winning an unprecedented fourth term; even though John Kerry’s sister Diana (at her brother’s direction) worked diligently against him. Well done, Mr. Howard! Despite the Kerry family’s obsessive attempt to unseat the Australian prime minister and overthrow his government (due to PM Howard’s unflinching support of President Bush’s and the US coalition of nations’ Iraq policies) PM Howard has won. The Kerry family has an unswerving history of working with both the enemies of the US and the far-left of other countries. This history began with John Kerry’s clandestine...

    Two of the judges on the committee for the Diana memorial have broken rank to say that they should never have picked Kathryn Gustafson's ring-shaped waterway. Architect Edward Jones and art critic Richard Cork have argued that the submission by Anish Kapoor was much better, and would have been an "extraordinary, world-class memorial" rather than just "splashing around in water." This is the latest in a litany of problems faced by the memorial (nicknamed "the puddle"), which currently lies closed and empty in London's Hyde Park only three weeks after its opening. The rock was tricky to cut, the pumps...

    June 28th, 2004, Cute and cuddly Katie Couric and her pet sidekick, a fellow who looks like Andre Agassi and acts like Lassie, proved a point this morning. They announced the pending release of "new information" about Princess Diana. Six days of Ronald Reagan, who just weeks ago left us, was excessive to American liberal journalists. Princess Diana passed to her reward long ago and far away, and we do not yet have our fill of her? If one wishes to compare deaths, Reagan got a disease and dealt with it bravely, while Princess Diana was in a limo full...

    US AIRING FOR DIANA TAPES Tapes secretly recorded by Diana, Princess of Wales, detailing the breakdown of her marriage to Prince Charles are to be screened on American TV.

    A British coroner asks police to investigate the death of the Princess of Wales, reviving all those wild conspiracy theories. Will they ever let her rest in peace? Never, says royals reporter STEPHEN BATES, even as he debunks the myths. For a man attending the inquests into the death of his beloved son and his son's girlfriend, Mohammed al Fayed was anything but mournful. Accompanied by a phalanx of lawyers and p.r. flacks, the Egyptian-born billionaire emerged last Tuesday morning from an inquest session in London with an unmistakable air of triumph. And no wonder: the coroner, Michael Burgess, had...

    The only eyewitness to Princess Diana's death insists no other person or vehicle was involved in the crash. Mohamed Medjahdi, speaking publicly for the first time, believes any conspiracy to kill her must have been carried out by "invisible men". After watching Diana's car career out of control, he said: "I am absolutely convinced, clear and certain, that this was a tragedy - but it was an accident." Crucially, Mr Medjahdi said he could see no photographers anyway near the car, despite initial police suspicions that they might have distracted the driver. "I got a complete picture from my side...

    A senior police source in France has told The Independent on Sunday that Diana, Princess of Wales, was pregnant at the time of her death following a road accident in Paris six years ago. The source - who saw all the documents relating to the case surrounding the Princess's death - dismisses suggestions that there was any murder conspiracy before the death of Diana, her friend Dodi al-Fayed and their driver in a car crash on 31 August 1997. He was speaking after a British coroner announced that he would hold inquests into the cause of the deaths of Diana...

    LONDON, Oct. 23. — Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has said he did not believe her fatal car crash in 1997 had been planned by anyone, despite a letter — published in A Royal Duty, a forthcoming book by her former butler Mr Paul Burrell, which is being excerpted in the Daily Mirror newspaper — in which she said she feared someone would tamper with her car’s brakes. Diana’s companion Dodi Fayed, was also killed in the crash, and his father, Md al Fayed, has never accepted the French verdict that driver Henri Paul’s use of drugs and alcohol, and...

    PRINCESS DIANA’S former lover, despised in Britain for revealing intimate details of their affair, has stirred up more revulsion — and fascination — by boasting the princess was good in bed and allowing excerpts from her private letters to be read on a television documentary. Tabloid newspapers mingled denunciations of James Hewitt with generous excerpts of his boasting. Hewitt, long nicknamed the "Desert Rat," was followed by a Channel Four television crew on a trip to the United States this year as he tried to sell the letters Diana wrote to him when he served as a tank commander in...

    James Hewitt has spoken for the first time of Princess Diana's prowess as a lover. The ex-cavalry officer, who had an affair with the late princess, also brags on a TV programme that he did Prince Charles a favour by sleeping with her. His comments will infuriate Princes William and Harry, already upset over Hewitt's attempts to sell, for millions, the love letters their mother sent him. The 45-year-old former soldier - whom Diana once said she "loved and adored" - made the remarks during filming of Channel 4's documentary Confessions Of A Cad, to be shown a week tomorrow....

    James Hewitt has put intimate love letters from Princess Diana up for sale at £10 million ($A27.9 million) during an interview on American television. The 44-year-old former Life Guards major, who had a five-year affair with the Princess, once proclaimed he would "never dream" of parting with them. The 64 letters contain personal details of their affair. Many were sent to him as he served with the army during the 1991 Gulf War. Mr Hewitt told a US chat show on Thursday: "Yes, I would be available to sell them." He made it clear he hoped to raise up to...
