Bless you Mari and Laura.   However, this thread is devoted to Sarah and tsaria had no right whatsoever intruding.

They plan interviewing 10 members of the security service who are in active service.   These people will not appear in open court in order to conceal their identity.     

Isn't this an indication of how seriously the British establishment views this inquest and its outcome as well as the extremes to which they are prepared to go in order to be rid of Mohamed Fayed and his increasingly aggressive arrogance and lying.

One wonders what Diana would have made of all this.   If - the great imponderable - the accident had never occurred, I am of the firm belief that she would have moved on from Dodi Fayed long before now.   However, even if in his wildest dreams, Mohamed Fayed was right in believing Diana would have married his son, this marriage would have been well and truly on the rocks long ago.   Dodi might have been a generous, dreamy, drug abuser, whose attentions Diana found irresistible, but can anyone imagine Fayed senior leaving the two to get on with their own lives.   Even today he is still living vicariously.

Waste of police or waste of court time is an offence in this country.   Mohamed Fayed is wasting everybody's time in order to live his obsession.   He has stated that he will accept the jury's finding.   If they find that the late Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed died as a result of a car accident caused by a driver under the influence of alchohol, driving a speed and that, additionally, they were not wearing seat belts, does anybody really believe Fayed will settle for this?

He needs his conspiracy theory to thrive as much as he needs oxygen.   Does anyone really believe he'll give up.   One wonders to what extremes he will be driven when the royal family and British establishment are vindicated.

tsaria won't be here for the simple reason... after all these years, I've decided I am more comfortable using my own name - therefore ChristineM will be here instead.

So, you're not getting rid of me!

1...2...3...   Hip, Hip, Hooray.

Welcome home Sarah.

Christine (tsaria) but I'm fed up using anything but my own name.    So, unless Rob tells me it will complicate things, please - its 'Christine' from now on.

I well remember 'soviet' travel, and have endured a variety of 'experiences'.    More recently I have flown from St Petersburg to Ekaterinburg and both outward and inward the aircraft (Uralair) were virtually brand new.

Boris Yegdalov (the amber master) used to always say that the Amber Room 'would no sooner be finished than the original would be found'.

Dear Vladimir - Thank you so much.   What a testament to the genius of Charles Cameron.   I've always adored the Temple of Friendship.   In fact, I think it was nothing short of perfect.

Mr Tretyakov looks as though he has been living rather too well since last I saw him.

Members of the House of Lords (as well as the Press) are to appeal to the Coroner to abandon the circus... sorry Inquest.

Hopefully this will happen and Fayed, the Phoney Pharoah will be deported to....... cloud cuckoo land.

Perhaps he cannot be forgiven because he keeps on lying.

This post might fall on stoney ground since the series is currently being transmitted in the UK.   It is a weekly hour long drama, each Monday at 9.00p.m.   Its based on 'Buckiingham Palace' - the King is single, young and moderately goodlooking.   He is being set up by the 'grey men' and his mother, with a glamorous aristocrat, but his real love is a beautiful, coloured, married woman.   His ambitious sister is anxious to oust him.   The series is full of colour and intrigue.   

Intuitively I felt it would not be my sort of viewing, but I've found myself sucked in by it.   Anyone else watching it.   If so... thoughts?

Mohamed Fayed (the 'al' is apparently the equivalent of a British 'Sir' - adopted by the man, but never earned) knows that the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales can only sit there and take what he throws.   I very much doubt if either of them would raise a legal action against him.   That probably is what he is hoping for.   The man is an attention seeker, pure and simple.   As for the Queen, I read Fayed said she 'wasn't important enough'.   

Now, for Tony Blair that's where I have a problem.   I thought his 'Peoples' Princess speech as he came out of church that Sunday morning, a bit too much off pat.   He was not capable of writing a speech like that between 4.00a.m. and 10.00a.m.   I certainly am not suggesting he was involved in the deaths, but I do have to raise an eyebrow over than speech.   Perhaps its a bit like the BBC - we've had obituaries ready for all of them ready for years.   They simply get updated.   With Diana it was different.   Nobody expected she would be killed.   This remains a bit of a mystery for me.

Fayed is a classic paranoichic... everybody's to blame.   He's the only one who knows the truth.    I think what he has done to the Duke of Edinburgh today, can only improve the public's perception of the 87 year old man.

Janet, I am 100% with you.   Considering oneself an expert in anything must be nightmarish... there is so much to live up to.   And, all the time, having to confront, horror or horrors, being proved wrong some day.   

The ability to relate to one's fellow human beings requires sufficient expertise for me.   Therefore, I'm heartily relieved that I am not an expert in anything.  I'll settle for having wide and rounded interests in life and the world and those around me.

That's a most interesting response John.   Could imply they are here using pseudonyms?

The mystery deepens.   Is anyone prepared to guess as to the identity of the royal personages in our midst?


What a brilliant idea, Larry.   Members of the Windsor Family who read this website, might just follow up on your suggestion.
