Speeding while drunk is adequate means to kill you and your passengers

No conspiracy is needed.

British police reveal there was no merit to new information they received regarding the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Police knock down Princess Diana murder claim – CNN.com.

There is “no credible evidence” to support a claim that the British military was involved in the deaths of Princess Diana, her boyfriend and their driver, according to London’s Metropolitan Police.

The allegation first surfaced in August, roughly 16 years after the woman who would now be a royal grandmother died in a Paris car crash. Officers were tasked with looking into whether there was any truth to it.

The latest claim, published by Press Association, the Sunday People newspaper and other British media outlets, alleged that members of Britain’s elite SAS commando unit were involved in assassinating Diana.

The claim appears to have been sent to military authorities by relations of a British special forces sniper. A handwritten letter from the man had boasted to his wife that the commando unit was behind the deaths. Officials found this claim to be baseless. But they did an investigation. I suppose we will hear about these possible conspiracies forever but the bottom line is, it was an accident. A horrible, careless mistake that took the lives of three people. No special forces are needed.

    I think the best debunking of the Princess Diana assassination conspiracy is still Mitchell & Webb’s comedy sketch

    It is probable that people outside the UK do not appreciate how heartily sick most of us here in the UK are of this lunatic conspiracy circus. I sincerely hope that [those] responsible for this latest fiasco are prosecuted for wasting police and security service time and that in future the authorities treat these ALWAYS BASELESS allegations with contempt.

      Actually, it seemed like they felt it was worth reporting. Hard to say whether they believed it or not. Perhaps just thought that mention of killing people warranted police involvement. I wouldn’t agree they were liars.

    We have no shortage of lunatic conspircy theorists in the USA too.
