Fancy that 2
From the BBC:
There is "no evidence" that the Duke of Edinburgh ordered Princess Diana's death or that it was organised by MI6, the coroner at her inquest has said.
Well, fancy that.
Did we really need to spend £7m finding out? Those who believe the conspiracy theories will carry on believing them. Evidence has nothing to do with it. Most of us don't believe them, and many of us don't care. What I want to know is whether they are they finally going to shut up about it.
On the ten-year anniversary of her death, E. J. Throbb wrote some rather irreverant lines, showing a cynicism surprising in a 17¾-year-old. I will repeat them here, to show how shocked I was:
So, farewell then, Princess Di.
I said farewell. Adios.Toodle pip.
What? You still here?
Look, Di, it's been ten years.
You've Di-lighted us long enough.
