Princess Diana - Driver Drunk And Drugged..

Sat Dec 09, 2006 6:40 pm

Looks like this is one 'conspiracy theory' that has run out of steam:-

(Excerpts - link to full story below)

"DNA tests on blood samples appear to prove the driver of Princess Diana's car was drunk on the night of her fatal accident, the BBC has learned.
The tests indicate original post-mortem samples, which showed Henri Paul was three times over the French drink-drive limit, were accurate and were his.

"This week Lord Stevens will make his judgement on the events of that night. It is widely expected that he will conclude the crash was an accident. The available evidence suggests Mr Paul was drunk at the wheel, with a potent mix of alcohol and drugs in his system, and driving too fast for the road.

"Conspiracy theorists have claimed that Mr Paul's blood samples were swapped.

"Some suggest this was done to portray him as drunk in an elaborate cover-up of a secret service plot to murder Diana.

"Professor Andre Lienhart reviewed the emergency services' response for the French investigation.

"In his first interview he tells The Conspiracy Files he saw copies of the post-mortem examination carried out on Diana in England 24 hours after the crash.

"The autopsy," he says, "showed that she was not pregnant.

"I don't think it's possible to stop rumours - what is clear from all the medical staff and paramedics working that night, is that they wanted to save the person in front of them. That is absolutely indisputable."

"And Professor Lienhart adds there is one crucial fact people need to know: "What is certain is that she was not wearing a seatbelt and this made things worse.

"We would like to think that if she had been wearing a seatbelt, we'd been able to save her."

Never mind my rant about DNA/BAC.

After reading more closely, now I see that the point of the DNA testing was to confirm the identity of the blood being tested; however, the lead in paragraph stinks in that it seems to make the point that the DNA test itself proved the BAC.

In other news; al Fayed is NOT the laird of Clan Ross but merely the nouveau riche current owner of Balnagown castle. And now, back to our afternoon nap.

I think I do too. I may change it back. But I do like the idea of being an invincible assimilator and destroyer of worlds. It appeals to my whimsical yet merciless side.

That is the item. I've always thought they would make a wonderful motorhome.

Cummins turbo diesel engine.
Allison transmission.
Proper Kenworth or Peterbilt style rear end.
Negative ground electrical system.

No cosmetic changes whatsoever!

I'm hung up over how to manage the potable/lav water. I'd like to have the water tank upstairs while parked but down below the lower deck while traveling. I'm open for suggestions.

Proving beyond doubt again that you cannot be dead and pregnant.

We'd like to think that if the driver had had any brains he wouldn't have gotten behind the wheel to begin with. What up with that security guard, couldn't he tell that Henri was 3 sheets to the wind?

If I recall the original French report on the accident, RJdxer, the decision to have Henri Paul, rather than the regular driver, drive the car was made by the Fayeds. And both Paul and the bodyguard worked for the Fayeds, their job was to do what they were told.

I have long wondered though why the bodyguard didn't make sure the driver was stone sober and safe to drive. He made a major mistake. I am quite sure another qualified and sober person could have been found that night to get Diana and al-Fyaed to their destination. I am quite sure they could have stayed at the hotel that night if a driver was difficult to get. At least they most likely would be both alive today.

That's twice, in one thread no less.  wideeyed 

Off topic but funny none the less. My wife and I visited Paris a few years ago and happened to enter the square where the Ritz is located. When I spotted the hotel I told my wife we should go check it out. We had been out all day and it was a windy one, something like 50mph up at the top of the Eiffel Tower so we were rather wind blown. Jeans and our Continental jackets. She was hesitant at first but I talked her into it. So in we went past the stretch Mercedes and RR's parked out front. I took notice of the drivers staring at us and the way that no one offered to open the door but in we went. The first stop just inside the door was a jewelry case with items from Tiffany's. Next was a case from another jeweler on the square. We were pretty overwhelmed by the amount of stones in the cases and didn't really notice anything else. Right after that is a hallway to the elevators and at this point a gentleman stepped from behind a pillar and wished us good day and could he help us? I said no, just looking around at which point he said, "No, I don't think so, if you do not have room or are not meeting a guest, it is time for you to leave." My perp vision picked up two men, one on either side of us, not threatening but not going away either. I said OK, we turned to go back and at that point we both noticed the little cafe off the lobby where a woman in a full ball gown was playing a real live, full size harp. I looked at my wife and she looked at me and we both busted out laughing. We looked like shit and had no business going into that place. I couldn't help myself and so turned to the guy doing the talking and said, "You can bet I'll have a talk with my friend Don Trump when we get home and I'll have you know I've been thrown out of better places than this!" It totally confused the guy and he hesitated as though not sure what to do but my wife started laughing even harder and that blew the moment. He mutter something under his breath in French and with that, the door was held open, for us to leave.
We laughed so hard we had tears coming out of our eyes and to this day when we think of Paris, we both start laughing thinking about being thrown out of the Ritz.

I often wish I'd had the presence of mind when the guy asked me if he could help me to realize what was going down and ask if my friend Henri Paul was working, I'd been out of the country in a remote part of New Guinea for several years and now was back in town and wanted to buy him a drink. I probably would have gotten tossed the hard way though if I had! lol
